Happy Birthday to my darling girl…

My sweet daughter, Sachiko, is 33 YO today. Wow, where do the years go? I was her age when I had her so that’s weird. But being a mom to her and my son has been my greatest joy in this lifetime. I loved being a mom thru pregnancy, infancy all the way to now. I’m lucky as both my children are incredibly talented, smart and easy going and we all get along and actually always have even thru the teenage years.

So happy birthday!!


In the garden!! Our yard is full of beautiful flowers all due to her hard work.

Today is a gym day and then we’re going to Safeway to pick up a square of cake. They sell pieces and since we don’t eat a lot of cake, it’ll be just right.

I finished the LR zone and just need to do another vacuum tomorrow.

Tomorrow we’re taking the tent trailer up to the Truckee area to try camping at Donner Lake. We’ve actually never stayed there so I guess we’ll see. I only booked it because there is NOTHING else anywhere.  But it should be okay at least to check out. B will work his stores up there and then come back to camp with me. We’ll probably go over to Lake Tahoe Thursday which is a 15-minute drive from Truckee.  I’m not planning any Lodge meals, just going to wing it. There is a Safeway in Truckee so that may be where dinner comes from.

Still haven’t gotten my lab results in paper form but I’ll e-message again tomorrow if I don’t get a message. Since I know the results, I’m not worried but I do keep a paper copy of my labs to compare.

Well, off to do something.



A beautiful Birth-day!

Today, 31 years ago, our sweet little girl arrived. I’m sure I’ve written about this before, but we had been married 15 years before we had her. So we were pretty excited.  As labors go it was 8 hours start to finish and really only 5 in the hospital. We were star struck.

So, today, I will make a birthday breakfast. She already got her mac pro so the gift is done. Although my husband was going to take her to the new  Green Acres nursery. It’s a great place and the prices were good. Then I bought an ice cream cake thing and we’ll have that tonight.


Happy birthday to my sweetie!

Today is my husband’s birthday. A milestone at 65! He’s in great health and looks 10 years younger. Still working hard to support us( me). We’re going out to lunch I think unless I think of something creative for dinner and then we would skip lunch. I’m probably making tofu burgers for dinner but that could change too.

It must be a quirky day with the wind. Yesterday it was 95 and hot ,today it must be 75 and breezy. Very fall like.

It’s also Bilbo Baggins birthday and Frodo’s. Very cool!!

I’ve worked thru most of the piles from my daughters rooms switch. Just a few more that she needs to do.

My sister will be coming to visit in October so I need the extra space for her. Originally she was going to stay in the studio , but then Zephyr  decided he wanted to move out there. So it all got switched up.

Its always good to move stuff and paint. You don’t realize how much crap is in a room till you need to move it to paint. So good all in all.

The budget numbers look good except the medical copays were pretty high $800  but now there’s just the one BMB one to finish. It’ll be November before its paid off.

The dentist office is still working with our regular insurance on the Invisalign since it is medically needed. They are fighting it though. ( of course)! I hope they pay at least something .

I’m one week into my pomalyst cycle. Maybe feeling a little tired, but that’s not unusual. I just not sure if my neutrophils drop will I feel it.

Well, it’s off to buy a chocalate cake for the birthday boy!
