INSTEAD OF


Large scale Niki de Saint Phalle sculpture outside the Mingei Museum in Balboa Park.

Life:I somehow broke my new, blue glasses, so life was a tradeoff this morning.  Instead of going to my exercise class, I went to my ophthalmology glasses lady.   She did reassure me that the lens wouldn’t fall out, but she didn’t think she could find another set.

While I was at the shop photographing the Jewelry Event…and we do have glorious jewelry, she called and said she found two new ones remaining. 




Computer stuff: ignore if you wish):  The big one works.  I just have to adapt to all the changes.  G works and doesn’t have time to hold my hands through all of this.  When I couldn’t get Photoshop to take images up here, I went downstairs to the laptop.  Both Windows 10 and Photoshop 15 did not defeat me.  I made a photo album for the store….


…only reaching the tears stage once. I think I will go make the bed, put my feet up, and finish As much of Schlesinger’s Journals as I can in the time I have left….Monday at the latest I must return the books.


                                                                   

  • Himself:  He’s started a short timer’s calendar of two years, 6 months. 
  • Herself:  Today, not letting the wearing out piecemeal get to me.  They didn’t tell me about this in the handbook.
  • Reading:  Finishing Journals first, then Ann Haynes book next, and lastly the Katherine Graham book “Washington.”

  • Gratitude’s:  That I am getting it all done.

    1. How do you compile the books you decide to read? ARe these finds at the shop? You get some very interesting stuff. Sorry about your laptop and PC frustration. There is nothing worse!

      1. Now that's a topic for a blog entry. If I find a book or subject that interests me, I usually follow the thread of thought. Look over to the right....The top three under "Histories" are all about the White House. That's been a major thread in my reading for years. Fashion, architecture, writing...then I get stuck and read forever about one thing or other.

    4. I have to wonder how long it took the artist to make that sculpture and where he found sufficient ceramic bits of each color. Very different. Is it a permanent exhibit? I'm in overload in books -- started reading "This must be the place" by Maggie O'Farrell last night and just cracked up. It's got a dry humor to it and I love it!
