Friday Miscellany: Beach, Board Meeting & Bath Reno

A week mostly routine with dog walks, grocery runs and other chores.

We did go for tacos on the Ventura pier on Tuesday and it was a glorious day to walk by the beach and out on the pier. Poor surfing but the water was sparkling because of the wind. The tacos were great as usual and we decided it is the best taco restaurant yet in our experience. Hubby is at the window ordering for us while I am saving the seat with the best ocean view.


I went to my favorite club's board meeting and as always enjoyed the company of these interesting and kind women. One of my goals for year 70 is to find more activities such as this club that bring me companionship and joy and to reduce to the absolute minimum the things I do only out of a sense of obligation.

I started serving as an online peer facilitator for a group that I truly enjoy. While it has led to me feeling like I have friends around the world it isn't a substitute for real life friends so I am eager to find one more local group.

My little hummingbird garden art birthday gift to myself arrived and I like it.


A new toilet paper holder arrived and will work well. We are waiting on the new light fixtures for both baths so don't know yet how they will work out but one of the ones in the master bath died earlier in the week so this change is just in time. And last but certainly not least, our partial guest bathroom renovation work is now scheduled to begin October 1st!

  1. You are so right about online friends making us feel like we have friends but it's not the same as real life friends. One of my goals in moving is to give me a community of real people to interact with on a daily basis. Since my husband died, I've missed that.

    1. I think that you will really thrive in your new community and it sounds like they are helping you all connect in advance.

  2. I need to get back into the swing of things, most of my groups closed down over the summer. Fall is quickly coming and they will be starting up again.

    God bless.

    1. I've been fortunate that subgroups of my women's club have kept going through the summer but the main group does close down. If one doesn't take summer vacations it can get a bit lonely.

  3. I think the recognition that I'd been 'hiding out' too much is what led me away from blogging. I do love that most of my electronic activities these days involve texting with friends, primarily to confirm our 'in person' social plans. But, selfishly, I enjoy your blog so I hope you'll continue, ha!

    So funny, but we had friends frim your area visiting us last week, and they went on and on about the great taco place in Ventura Harbor. We are longtime Andria's seafood fans, but promised to give the taco place a try next time we're in the area.

    2. And it is very hard to think of you as hiding out with your very busy life! Glad you enjoy my blog and we do have to meet IRL one of these days.
