The mornings gift us grey skies. Throughout the day, the June gloom thins, and by noon we have some glorious sunshine. Errand running in the sun yesterday was delightful. The sunshine brings a clarity to the colors and clothing, to the flowers and buildings surrounding us. For some reason, orange is the new accent color on new construction. I had gotten tired of blue.

Style. I find it amusing that all young-uns are wearing pants that come up to their waist lines. All. So now all the tops are cut shorter to meet up with the longer pant tops.

Do you have a warrantee for your car/truck/or SUV? One day G said something in response to one of the Spam calls. They called us 17 times that day. We have a 1995 and a 2005 truck and car. Golly Gee, they always hang up on us when they discover the age of our vehicles.

The day moves on by. I have a diet coke with my book mid-afternoon as does G. The sunshine grows watery. Outside on the patio the geraniums scream their colors out for the world to see.
We watch the news. I see the fog coming in over G’s shoulder as he brings the dinner in. Dinner is glorious.

  • Himself: Off in Space somewhere.
  • Myself: Writing.
  • Reading: JA JANCE and Joe Pickett by CJ Box.
  • Watching: KPBS: Finding Your Roots among others.
  • Photo: Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. At the 1935 fair, this was the New Mexico Building.
  • Gratitude’s: That I can see beyond the now.

I've got 'maintenance for life' on my Nissan from the dealer. I get free oil changes (with synthetic!) "forever", whatever that means. ;-)

I have been avoiding the news nearly all the time.

I'm glad high waists are in - I'll fill my closet now and then have them for years! :) (Will continue to wear regular shirts with them, nuts to this shorter nonsense.) I'm glad for your sun and flowers.

That’s the only problem we sometimes have over here being on the coast - that there’s often a haar descends at the beach in the afternoons in the summer months. My house is far enough away that it doesn’t bother me though :)

I read somewhere SD has the best climate in the world.....and even if not it's a great place to live!

Oh, I hate those high waisted pants. I won't be following that trend.

I like the high waisted jeans but not the short tops :-) My core is not what it should be :-)
