What’s on your mind?
happy tuesday pups!
Beautiful day, and I never made it to work. All phone and computer communications down.
hiya ce — woohoo for tech breakdowns at work!!! how did you spend your day?
Aloha, Suz, CE, and lln pups…! What happened to knock’em out…?
aloha tut – how’s paradise tonight?
Gathering on the deck of three employees, tea, iPad, iPhone and laptop searching. Freed from work at 11:00, and lunch after. I spent the afternoon reading and snoozing on the deck in my new lounge chair.
WIll look at work.
A soggy day and nite…!
sweet!!! what fun
we are heating up again — should hit 90 tomorrow – ugh
Hi, Kids. Heavy fog on the south central coast but warm in the afternoon. Strangest summer I’ve seen around here. Not complaining, of course. A/C bill has been almost non-exsistent… and I’m staying out of the sun anyway, but it’s just, well, you know, different.
And, too, despite global warming, I won’t be ocean front property for another more-than-100-years, so it’s all good in my little paradise.
hey dearie — a warm kitchen makes everything cozy :) its feeling more like sept than august up here – i’m so ready for decent rain
hey, Suz. I’m still working quite a bit. It’s always nice to come home to my little abode and just burrow in. Stayed over in Santa Maria last night and then had a No-Show client this a.m. F**, etc. I don’t get paid when I don’t work. Could have come home last night. Sometimes I feel like tracking the recalcitrant clients down and throttling them.
crap crap and crap — that is so rude of that client
fool on the hill
The alleged Blue Moon is really quite spectacular. I’d rather, though, have been without fog so that I could have enjoyed The Perseids!
one note samba
it was gorgeous as it rose tonight. went from a golden yellow to a pearl white…
Hate to schmooze and run, but all the driving is catching up with me. Thanks, as always, Suz for hosting. Hope you are enjoying the Blue Moon, too. It’s really lighting up my coast.
g’nite dearie — happy dreams
Sweet dreams, Dearie…!
Not Sergio Mendes but still one of my favorites.
hey cmauk — how ya doing tonight? that’s smooth! i can see why its a fav
i’ll marimba you
Doing OK. Finally – after many months or work by my sisters – finally got a day for my mother’s funeral in Arlington. Oct.
how horrible that it has taken this long and its still so far off
Well we had to work around everyone’s time. My sisters and my brother and my cousin and some close friends from Canada who are also named Maukonen.
oh *exhaling* i thought it was due to some bureaucratic red tape or something
Well that too. Also nobody and I mean nobody wanted to go to DC in the summer.
october is a lovely month — i’m quite fond of it since my birthday falls mid-month
After 2 here. Bedbie by time.
g’nite cmauk — happy dreams
i’m gonna go sit on the front porch next to my brand new heliotrope plant and enjoy its grape popsicle smell while gazing at the lovely moon.
g’nite all — happy dreams
