Lovely Southern California Weather for a Walk

Make Time for Small Reflections

Walking yesterday
with my sister ... Balboa
Island house for sale!

Unique animals
inhabit this pretty yard
along with flowers

Alas ... I've tried multiple times to add the rest of my walking pictures, but Blogger won't let me upload any more photos at the moment and I'm leaving for a Photography class ... so perhaps I'll add the rest later (or not). Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
With any luck, on Monday afternoon, you'll be able to see
additional pictures from my Balboa Island Walk
at Happily Retired Gal

A Multitude of Memes on Monday ...

Make Time for Small Reflections
Colorful rowers
practicing in Newport Bay
... yellow, red, & blue

Statues on the dock
over looking the progress
under stormy skies

Colorful accents
lights & awning catch the eye
on this dreary day

Raindrops dance upon
the roof merrily ... with a
sign in the background

multitudes of drops
scatter as they splatter in
a close macro view

leaving I notice
another sign and this old
fashioned red phone booth ...

Blue skies after grey
clouds billowy ... dramatic
beautiful drive home

A brief note: I'm having computer crash issues when I try to create posts and when visiting blogs so I'm falling behind, but once they're resolved I'll do my best to catch up with all of you ... eventually.

It's a wet, wet, wet, wet world ...

with wild windy weather!!!
Make Time for Small Reflections

Ms Kitty will not
come inside unless I leave
the door open ... so

she's been hiding out
in the bushes ... checking in
when the rainfall breaks

You can see I've moved
the blue chairs to an alcove ...
due to heavy winds

Molly and I go outside
just to stretch our legs

and take photographs
sharing just a few today ...
wet & windy world

Thanks to all for your concern. I'm fine but it's still raining. I've just returned from an 8am appointment dealing with Medicare Supplemental Plan F issues and am leaving soon to drive to the local Social Security office because the promised 'secure envelope' still hasn't shown up. I'm hoping they'll 'scan' the necessary verification paperwork into my file as a 'walk-in' today (at the suggestion of the last person I spoke to on the phone yesterday afternoon). Keep your fingers crossed for me driving over there & back ... and getting someone to help me follow through today.

More rain predicted
for today and tomorrow ...
drizzling right now

burned areas from October
danger of mudslides

Waterspouts became
tornados yesterday and
caused damage around

coastal towns nearby
creating CHAOS so this
is my OSI ...
