This is how I feel most days

Oh Lemuel, I hear you.

Groan… I’m up in daylight… walking into the sun.

Iceland vs. California

A couple of weeks ago we went to Iceland, and we came home to a California on fire. We know at least one family who lost their home and several others who were evacuated but eventually were able to go home. Right now our autumnal temperatures are in the 80s and 90s (Fahrenheit). I think I want to go visit Iceland again sooner rather than later.

Trix cereal is running a beauty contest for rabbits. The winner gets to have its photo featured on boxes of cereal and be the silly rabbit that doesn’t get the Trix. I guess our rabbit actually wants his share of cereal because here’s what happened when I tried to take some pictures of him. (more…)

Fairy Rings

With all the rain we’ve been getting here in Southern California, mushrooms are popping up in lawns everywhere. I’ve really enjoyed watching the circle of mushrooms emerge on our front lawn. They appeared on a day when all my electronics were going wonky, and as I told the kids this was because there was too much magic in the air, they nodded very seriously.

I’m lucky they still play along with me. 🙂

We’ve been watching our favorite movies in French language mode. It’s a blast. Everything is funnier in French.

Beautiful

A month ago I learned how to play poker. I can’t believe I’ve been alive this long and only now learned how to play this game. Poker is beautiful. It’s more beautiful than chess.

Killing Floor

I just finished reading the first Jack Reacher novel, by Lee Child. Wow, the amount of blood-letting stretched the imagination. Other than that it was a pretty good story. I can see why some people thought Tom Cruise was not a good pick for the role of Jack in the movie version. I think Brad Pitt or Chris Evans (Captain America) would be better fits.
