Lazy Day

It's raining in San Diego..imagine that! Didn't feel like doing much of anything, so I made an executive decision to climb back into bed and read a book. I wasn't the only one who thought this was a stellar idea. Here's the view from.....well, me!

Taken with a cell phone camera, I think it came out pretty well. As you can see I wasn't going to get much reading done, so I took another just to bug Suki
Not only did I have 85 Lb Suki on my chest, but 35 lb Cookie Monster on my stomach

At least I was warm!

My friends called me last minute last night to go see a movie. I had about 20 minutes to get there, and didn't ask much about what we were seeing. BIG mistake
We saw The Reader. Absolutely no joy to be had in this. Can't say I enjoyed it. As I was waiting outside the bathroom for my friends after the movie, a woman asked if I just came from seeing the Reader. When I confirmed, she said, "Was that just totally depressing or what!" A couple of other people joined in, all agreeing that is was dark and depressing. Wish I would have missed it

On that note, I see a couple of hairy critters that want my attention. I abuse them so badly, those poor creatures. I just hope *I* get the blankets tonight

Couple of pics

Life is pretty hectic in La Casa de Las Locas. One daughter closed escrow on her first house!! Other daughter is freezing her non-existent butt off in Flagstaff and struggling with physics. Parents are due in tomorrow from a 35 day cruise of Hawaii and the Pacific islands. Me? I'm trying to work my way back in tennis.Foot feels okay while playing, but I'm tentative and have to ice heavily afterwards.Meh..

A couple of pics I've gathered...this tree is across the street from my parent's house. They started to chop it down, then stopped. What's left is kinda macabre..
Next up is the view from my front window the other night
And an entry just wouldn't be complete without a couple of doggy pics.....first is a Monster in the dark..

..followed by an upside Down Suki doing her centerfold impersonation

One of these days I'll actually write something meaningful!
