Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Who doesn’t love that song?  Maybe there are some people that don’t, but I really love it.  I couldn’t stop humming it as I was taking this picture the other evening.  It’s a good thing no one else was around, lol.

It was a blustery, rainy, sunny evening and I took this when I snapped the Power Struggle image I posted recently.  That bench overlooking the little valley where we used to live is just so charming.  It’s funny that I hadn’t taken a photo of it before, but I think everything happens for a reason, so on my last day just before our move, I was provided the opportunity for this shot.

I really believe it was a sign that good things are to come and for a new chapter in my life to begin.  Life is good and not somewhere over the rainbow, but right here and now.

Magic Number is “1”!!!!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love baseball.  The really convenient thing about this is that I live in baseball heaven with two teams to choose from, The Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants!  Growing up in Oakland, I’ve witnessed some of the finest baseball in history over the years.

Which team is my favorite you ask?  Hmm…well, I would say I love them both equally.  AT&T Park where the Giants play is a gorgeous facility.   The fans are awesome and it’s really a treat to go.  (Oh!  That reminds me, we have tickets to the Giants vs. Dodgers on Thursday, lol.)  But Oakland is my hometown, so I have a huge soft spot for the A’s.

Yesterday my hubby and I wanted to go to the game and we wondered which one we should go to.  We decided on Sunday and we are so glad we did because today is the day the A’s could clinch their division!   Their magic number is ‘1’!  Needless to say I’m a happy camper!

I’m even more of a happy camper because yesterday I fell on my knee replacement.  Fortunately, it happened inside our house just inside the door on an area rug.  We had an unusual heavy rain (it rarely rains in California at this time) and I took off my shoes just inside the door and forgot they were there and tripped on them shortly after.  Ugh!  My knee hurt and it was a bit swollen but today it seems I’m fine again.  I did worry a bit because it hurt like $%^&!!!  But now I seem to be back to normal and I’m walking fine.  😀     Thank god because I don’t want to miss this game!  LOL!  I have my priorities.  🙂

Here we come Alaska…

Ok, so I’m just a tad excited.  We’re leaving for Alaska tomorrow morning.  Yay!   Right now I’m taking a break from packing my suitcase.   Oy!  It’s always such an ordeal getting all my little bottles together, the right lipsticks, the right tops and bottoms and formal attire for the formal nights, hiking boots, glittery shoes for evening, ipad charger, purses, hats, gloves, fleece vest, swimsuit for the hot tub/pool area, LOL…you get the idea.  It’s kind of a mixed bag of what to bring on this trip, so I have to bring a little of everything.

I just checked the weather and it seems like typical Alaska weather this time of year…some rain, some sun but not cold.  Hurray!  I did bring some warm things to wear just in case, especially since we’ll be up in helicopters and in a 4×4 in the wilderness.  And a waterproof/windproof jacket.

My camera has its very own suitcase now, by the way.  I’ll be rolling it on as a carry on.  Fortunately I didn’t have to buy a separate seat for it.  🙂

OMG, I am so excited.  See you in little over a week!   It’s been 8 months since my knee replacement and I’m living life once again.  🙂
