And I don’t want to miss a thing

I found a keyboard for my iPad mini! Have you ever tried to type with the screen’s keyboard??? It’s awful. Laptop blogging = hot lap. Desktop computer blogging = audience walking up behind you.

Anyway, how have you been? I live and work full time in Playa del Rey now. I’ve lived here for 5 1/2 years already. It’s a great little town. I live a 15 minute walk from the ocean. Or a 90 minute jog. I like to take a lot of long breaks when I jog. Last month I tried jogging while holding my latte, and I don’t recommend that. Make it an espresso, then slam it like they do in Italy, and be very noisy about it, and then go jogging.

The beach here is great. It meets up with the Ballona Creek and Ballona Wetlands, so there’s so much more to explore than just just a regular beach. There are 3 Jettys right next to each other, and a breakwater. One is really long and is quite a hike out to the end, but worth it because you can watch the boats go by as they’re coming in.  I usually end up seeing wildlife out there too. The wetlands fill with wildflowers in the spring, including tall, beautiful mustard flowers.

I like living with Tim. He’s pretty fun. It’s harder to write when you’re having fun. Time goes by pretty fast. I am not one to say I wish I’d stop and smell the flowers, because I do that all the time. But I miss writing too.

Here’s a pic from last night at the beach. We spent the evening down at Dockweiler and a great big flock of Pelicans flew by right before sunset.
