As I am feeling so much more settled here in S. Cal I have been finding little gems to appreciate and things that are making life more fun.
Right now I am having a snack of Trader Joe's Pink Grapefruit Marmalade on sourdough toast. I love pink grapefruit and I don't like sweet jellies or jams. This is perfect and it was a chance find.
I went to lunch with a new friend and finally got to try Relm Wine & Beer, a women owned business that started about the time we moved here. Nice lunch menu and the ambiance was perfect. It was fun that we sat under a unique light fixture made of a long tree branch wrapped in fairy lights and hung with clear crystals of all sizes and shapes. A homemade crystal chandelier! I want one.
If I had to pick a 3rd one it would be the excitement (low level to be sure) of deciding to sign up for private swim lessons to see if lap swimming can become an exercise venue for me. I'll let you know how it works out but at 8:45 am for 4 days a week for two weeks I'll be giving it a go.
