Santa Barbara mini vacation

imageimageWe left Sunday,it was nice since I didn’t take my dex on Saturday night. I felt pretty good. It’s a long drive but I did ok.

We checked into the holiday express and it was quite nice and only a few steps away from State street, which is where everything is. Plus, th beach was a few blocks away, but we drove and parked. Then we walked out Stearns wharf. It was just getting to be sunset. We found a nice little restaurant, Moby Dick, and settled in with a glass of wine and relax. I’ll try and add the pictures as the upload.

then we headed out to a nice Mexican restaurant. Pretty good. I’m pretty fussy about spending money on food. So, this was good.

Then the next day we were out walking at 6:30 am along the beach trail. Glorious! Then we went to the Sambos on the beach side. I wanted to go here for breakfast since in Tucson we used to go there when we were in college. this sambos was ┬áthe first and last so it’s kinda cool. I’ll fill in more later on the museums, and other restaurants.

Paper whites

imageSome nice paper whites my daughter started in her new Christmas greenhouse! And our stupid goat who roams free and eats everything. Sunday morning dex!

Cleaned what wasn’t done yesterday by B. most everything was done. I dusted, swiffered, and wiped the bathroom.

Then I made stuffed bell peppers for tomorrow. 3 meat and brown rice ,2 vegie.

Then I made chicken Parmesan for dinner, and they’ll be cheese ravioli for the vegies.

So, now I’m heading on the 2 -3 hour downhill slide with dex. I dont really sleep, (nap), but no energy after the burst and need to rest.

Next week, we’ll be on our way for our mini trip to Santa Barbara. I’m not planning on taking dex, although I will let him( my doctor know). I just need to be semi normal , even though I’ll still be on revlimid. I was trying to figure out how to work it in during the week, but there just isn’t a way. So…. I should get my lab results this week, if they can find them, since my doctor has moved to mercy cancer center in Sacramento . I pretty sure nothing has changed, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s another increasE. Revlimid seems to have worked its last magic, and I’m figuring, Velcade in the next few months. Thats what we had discussed so…..

its a beautiful day in Northern California .
