Monochrome Ocean

Monochrome ocean
The view from Alcatraz, November 2019

My thoughts spun wildly,
So I went down to the sea;
The waves rolled in mellow,
The tide tinged with green.
I absorbed the energy
Of calmness and peace,
Nourished by the easy,
Salt-laden breeze.

Cee challenges us to share our desktop, so that is mine on my new laptop. I took this pic at Crystal Cove a few years ago when my daughter and her hubby visited. Today, I went to Crystal Cove with my roomie and took a bunch of new pics, some of which are good. Funny thing, I didn’t even know about the challenge when I went this morning.

If you’re thinking I have nothing on this computer, you’d be wrong. I have loads of documents and photos here, but they are all organized into folders and filed away neatly, which makes them easier to find later. I don’t like things cluttering up my desktop and it drives me nuts when I can’t find something.

Hat’s All Folks!

This is for Cee’s fun foto challenge: hats.

Paula in hats

Clockwise, starting at the top left, is me in my sparkly St. Patrick’s Day beret last year. I was out to dinner with friends at one of our favorite restaurants in Irvine, Urban Plates. We miss that place and have vowed to return as soon as we can.

Next I’m at the Orange County Fair with 2 friends I put discretion stickers over, since idk if they want their faces on my silly blog. I’m wearing my straw “pussy hat” I bought at Disneyland. It’s very discreet, and you wouldn’t necessarily think it’s making a statement. I believe this was also 2019, though I bought the hat in 2018.

The center right was at a murder mystery dinner party where we role-played 1920s gangsters, flappers, and other characters. Since I’m always cold, I opted for a suit costume rather than a sexy dress. It came with a cool hat! This was ages ago in 2012 or something.

Bottom right is me in an utterly adorable knit cap that my talented friend Nat made and sent as a gift. It’s so sweet! I love it. 💕

Finally, I’m all in green as Robynne Hood at the Renaissance Faire out in Azusa… 2014, I believe it was. What a fun day! I’m not sure I’ll go to the fair again though… it’s always so beastly hot out there and honestly it’s the same every time. But you never know…

Show us your cute hat pics! 👒🧢

Ock? Ack!

Since I’ve deleted all the photos men have privately sent me from dating sites, I didn’t think I would have any *ock pics for Cee’s challenge. But then I remembered socks.

Not only is Gatsby posing with socks, but he is wearing perma-socks too. This was in my old-old apartment back in Huntington Beach, not too far from where we’re living now. But we have a nicer table.

Cocoa in Black and White

Cocoa the cat

I’m thankful for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, since it gives me the opportunity to post this pic of my kitty Cocoa (RIP).

Cocoa showed up in my life in the fall of 2004, just when I needed her. My neighbor had been feeding her, a stray, but she had 3 other cats, and Cocoa was all… the heck with this scene, I’m going to check out the accommodations across the street. Cocoa simply strolled into our garage and then on into the kitchen… deciding hey, nice place ya got here, would be a shame if it didn’t have a cat living in it. Now it does. Boom.

Cocoa was a large and lovely lady kitty, lots to love, and we all loved her a lot. She had a super sweet and interesting personality, and soon we adopted a lil sister for her cuz I liked having two of everything back then. Cocoa was probably 6-8 years old when she arrived in our lives and unfortunately already had a limp from arthritis.

By 2011, the arthritis had progressed to the point that Cocoa could no longer walk without pain. We tried some medications but to no effect. After she stopped going to her food dish, she lost a bunch of weight, and we said goodbye. 😢

I like to believe Cocoa was happy with us for those 7 years. We were lucky to have her. 💖💖💖
