Grateful day 6…

I hope your weekend was as uneventful as mine. Who wants to do anything in this California heat.

Always grateful for Monday’s. It’s like you’re being handed a new beginning!

But most important I am grateful for…

1. Tyson. He was just a baby here. Around 6 months I think.

2. Frank’s Red hot sauce LOL

3. A simple lunch.

Happy Monday.

Have a great week.

Happy Friday…

It’s been a long week. Between the weather, work and an Angels 10 day home stand. I am a little tired. So as I sit here on the train headed to work. I hope today goes by fast.

I can’t believe it’s my 5th post this week. I don’t know why I haven’t been posting as much as I have wanted to. I’m not one to complain about not having time. I can easily post on the train when I’m going to work or going home. I might just try to take advantage of that. Like I said in a post earlier this week, I want to do a do’s and don’ts about riding the train. Metro Monday? LOL.

Did I mention I’m tired? Ha!

Not tired enough to go see this guy play tonight.

Bottom left picture, YES Mike Trout was waving at ME!!! I thought he was waving at a somebody behind me, so I turned around and there was nobody there. Like a true fan girl I wanted to flip out and yell I LOVE YOU MIKE TROUT. But I didn’t. I kept taking pictures and he kept waving!

I could talk baseball for days, but my train is almost at my destination and I better get ready to get off. These passengers are vultures when they are trying to catch their shuttles so I need to pay attention. ROFL

Happy Friday. Have a good weekend.

Hi <3

I didn’t realize how long it had been since my last update until my niece Dani reminded me that I hadn’t updated my blog. She’s probably the only one that checks for updates and that’s okay with me.

A lot has happened in the last few months. Lots of good stuff and some stuff not so good.

I’m back to work. I don’t know if that falls under good or bad LOL. The fun thing about work is that I take metro. If you know me, you know I like taking the train places. So it’s a daily adventure lol. I will be doing a blog post of the do’s and don’ts of riding metro.

I love people watching so riding the train to work has been fun. I posted this in my personal Instagram. But I wanted to share it here too.

He usually wears bright pants. I was surprised to see him wearing black. What doesn’t surprise me is the confidence in his walk. People stare at him because of his bright pants. But he walks like he truly doesn’t give a fuck what people think. GOOD FOR HIM. We should all walk with that same confidence.

Hi Dani girl <3 Tia loves you.

Please stop by on Thursday for an extra special Thank you Thursday dedicated to Hugo Juarez! My friends husband who recently passed. Love you Diana.

Have a great week!

Thank you Thursday…

Huge thank you to my coworkers that have reached out to me this past week and a half. I still consider them my coworkers even if I don’t work with them anymore. I was laid off from my job of 22 years and I miss them so much. I think of you daily ladies and I hope you think of me too.

Chia: my days are not complete without you. Thank you for staying with me while I packed everything up. It means so much to me to know that I can always count on you. Our friendship is everything to me.

Mrs. Glorie: I can’t even type without crying. Thank you for always believing in me, for always appreciating me and for always being the friend that we all need in our lives. Don’t let me hear that your giving anybody else a bowl of potato salad or your going to hurt my feelings.

Mrs. Ima: my morning coffee is so boring without you, and who am I supposed to get my news from now? The weather report and the entertainment news from. Thanks for always being the light of my day. Thank you for always loving all my crafts and for always telling me no to give my talent away. I miss you.

Arlene: i had to start making my own pancakes since I don’t have you around to make them for me. Stay positive and stay eating all the yummy tofu. Thanks for always being a good sport and for always being so nice to me even when I was mean to you lol. I hope that you finally learned how to pronounce pescatarian lol.

Maricela: I wish I could have been there your last few days with the company. Best of luck with your new job. I know you will be amazing. Thank you for your support and for always appreciating all my crafts!. I hope I still see you every Christmas for your family photos!

Thank you ladies!

Thank you Thursday…

So much to be thankful for lately. But today I am thankful for friends who invite my sister and I over for their birthday lunch. Friends who take their time to make lemonade.

How beautiful are these lemons!!!

Friends who take the time to make us salad and soup.

Thankful for a good lunch that was cooked from scratch but even more thankful for nice conversations, for fun stories and for how appreciative friends are. Thank you Alma for such a fun afternoon.
