Gladstone’s

We celebrated Wendy’s 33rd birthday tonight at a wonderful seafood restaurant in Malibu called Gladstone’s. Unbelievably wonderful place! At the end of the meal, our leftovers were wrapped in animal shapes of foil–a swan, a rabbit, a shark and a whale. (I FELT like a whale, after all that food.) The restaurant is right on the ocean, and because of a special lighting system, we could see the tide breaking on the lovely white sand.

Shopping foray included Border’s, Urban Outfitter, and–yes–Michael’s!

Tomorrow, we’re planning to veg.

Hello from California

I finally managed to find this blog on my new computer! As I write this, I am sitting in my daughter’s bedroom, which I have usurped like visiting royalty, with occasional visits from two grand-cats and a grand-dog. Life is good.

Today is Wendy’s birthday, so we’re going out to celebrate.

The weather in Santa Monica is certainly an improvement over Spokane! Blue skies, sunshine, only a mile or two to the ocean. It just doesn’t get any better.

On Friday, I’ll be meeting with a group of Wendy’s writer friends–son-in-law-to-be Jeremy is making a spaghetti dinner. Fun to talk shop.

Now that I’ve figured this out, I’ll write more. Next on the agenda–shopping. One of my favorite activities!
