Journey of a body on this earth


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.  🙂

Waves Good-Bye to Alaska

Well, the time has come to close out the Alaska chapter in my life.  sighs.  It was a wonderful trip, but I have pictures to oogle over when I want to remember!

Time to focus on our upcoming trip to Carmel.  It’s actually my husband’s business trip which makes it my camera time!

Bye Alaska!  It’s been fun!


More Alaska Anyone???

I’m winding down on the Alaska photos!  I just can’t seem to get enough of Alaskan skies.  Here in California, we don’t usually get too much inclement weather this time of year.  It’s usually one of two things:  sunny or foggy.  🙂   So I was in heaven with the clouds since we usually get pretty clouds mostly in the springtime.

This is coming just in time because in early September I will be in another heavenly place on earth…Carmel, California!
