These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

SoCal Saturday

I didn't leave work until about 8:30 last night. My poor animals suffer from my often irregular hours but always seem to forgive me more quickly than I would forgive myself.

I was wide awake. So I finished Ten Big Ones by Evanovich. Then I finished watching The Weatherman with Nicolas Cage. Due to this late night orgy I suppose, I was sound asleep at 10:30 a.m. when my phone rang. My sister had left a message for me at work, complete with her phone number and my brother's phone number.

Why my sister does not have my phone number, and why she believes that I do not have her phone number, is a complete mystery to me.

It turns out that my half brother, Drew, is in town with his family and would like to meet me. I have 4 younger half siblings. Drew is the baby. I think that makes him like, young enough to be my son. I have not seen him since he was about 2 years old.

Color me bored. One family is enough. I think my father's one claim to fame was his ability to procreate. He spread his seed across the land like that famous man named Johnny. All of his trees bore fruit. In the interest of trying to be a nice person, I may make a half hearted attempt to connect sometime tomorrow.

But back to my Saturday. I arose after the phone rang. I had fresh ground coffee, the cat had her kibble, and the dog had her morning medication followed by breakfast. Followed by medication. Which was followed by a good poop. All was right in my Universe.

I noodled on the net. Blog surfed. Checked message boards. Checked e-mail. In between, I played about 300 games of Free Cell. Not because I'm hooked. At my age, you have to make sure you keep your reflexes and your hand eye coordination in prime condition.

I discovered that the 3 Olivia Butler novels I ordered from Alibris had arrived. Oh boy!

Decided to go grocery shopping and discovered that the air carried a decided Arctic chill. Laugh if you must. This may be southern California but the wind had a bite to it that one does not usually feel in this climate. Very odd.

These are some of the items I purchased:

A chicken and some vegetables to make a stew.

Haagen Dazs Raspberry Chip ice cream.

Coombe Farm mature and creamy cheddar from South Somerset.

Sour dough sandwich rolls.

A bottle of Napa Valley merlot. I purchased a copy of The Little Black Book of Wine a while back and I'm trying to be more adventursome.

Some Lean Cuisine meals (on sale) to take for my lunches.

Some Gerber veal baby food for the dog.

A couple of packages of 60 watt light bulbs.

I saw that I have earned a free drink at the grocery store Starbucks. It's my 6th one. This means that in the last 13 months, I have purchased 42 beverages at that particular Starbucks. It's one of 4 Starbucks stores that I frequent. I decided to save it for a day when I'm feeling poor.

When I returned home, my neighbor across the way knocked on my door. He has an emergency with his sister up in northern CA. I promised to feed his cats while he's away. He forgot to mention, until we sealed the deal, that I would also be feeding and walking his dog. Oh well. Luckily I like animals.

I have given Maggie her evening meds and in a few minute's I'll feed her. Then we'll hunker down in bed with my new books and the movie Domino. All in all, a pretty good day.

I love trying new wines, and miss going to Napa... have been 4 times. Nothing like going to small wineries and sampling their reserves!

I haven't sampled the wine yet. Maybe this evening. I did sample the movie Domino though. Don't bother with it. It's nasty.

If you're ever in CA, we ought to meet up at the wineries and make it a day.
