Category: Hanging with friends

Hello June!

Good afternoon!! I hope everyone reading this is having a great day so far!! 🙂 🙂 Not too much excitement going on in my life at the moment. I am staying close to home because I don’t want to leave my dog for too long. He is still doing good, not great, not terrible…he has his good days/bad days. I am just trying to keep him as comfortable as possible. I can’t stand to see my pets (or any animals) in pain or suffering!! Ugh! Just dealing with him on a daily basis.

I have been enjoying the beautiful weather here in CA. Wow, it is amazing! I do miss Arizona, but not in the summer. hehe! It’s pretty cool being able to hike and walk my dog in June. 🙂 I even have my windows open for a few hours in the morning. I tried swimming the other day and that didn’t work. The water is SOOOO cold, I dipped my toes and then ended up in the hot tub. ha! 😉

Buzz and I did make it out to Hollywood with a friend for some food and drinks. Found a few pretty cool bars/restaurants. It is so much fun people watching there. 😉

I wish I had all sorts of cool stuff to post today, but I don’t. The main thing in my life right now is taking care of my fur baby. I will keep in touch and write more soon.

Kisses,
Rach

Here we go again…. Ugh

neo

Hey everyone….happy Friday!! I hope you all enjoy your weekend! I have been a little out of it lately, we found out one of my dogs has lymphoma. Ugh! Here we go again, Josie died from it at the exact same age. Seriously sucks!!! 🙁 Everyone is telling me how he has had a great 12 years of life and I know that, but that doesn’t make it any easier. They just don’t live long enough. It does help talking about it though, I am not one to bottle up my feelings. So thanks for listening to me talk about this. It’s really hard…my pets are my babies. Losing one of them is like losing family to me. With this type of thing we just go day by day. I will make sure to keep him happy and in no pain. When he is in pain, I am in pain. I won’t have that. Send prayers and positive thoughts our way please! 🙂 🙂

I don’t want to be a total downer today so let’s move on to other things. I will say that I have been getting out more and enjoying what CA has to offer. We found some new trails right by our house which is awesome. The views are amazing!! You can see downtown LA on one side and I think Santa Monica on the other, not really sure what city it is ..but it’s the beautiful ocean. I will have to take my binoculars next hike. It’s so different hiking here than in AZ. It is gorgeous, but I think the AZ desert is gorgeous too. I know some people can’t see beauty in the desert…but it is alive and amazing as well. I know the cactus look mean and usually are..lol, but just something about the desert that I love. Maybe it’s because I am a Scorpio. hehe! The green rolling hills and mountains here in CA are so pretty too. I guess I just love nature in general. Beauty is all around us…you just have to stop and appreciate it. Life is too damn short!

I have been going to the gym regularly again…woohoo! It really does make me feel better overall and gives me more energy. Hey I will be 50 in November…honestly it seems unreal. Where does the time go???

I have been working a lot and playing a bit too. Met friends for a nice dinner one night and also met up with a group of friends for drinks at a super cool restaurant in Calabasas. It’s so nice sitting outside and listening to live music, my kind of music. 🙂 Fun times!

No trips or vacations planned anytime soon, I need to take care of my baby boy. He comes first!! 🙂

I am off now …I have a busy Friday. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Kisses,
Rach

Where does the time go?????

Good morning!! I am FINALLY getting around to my blog. I am soooooo bad. 🙁 I guess things change and priorities shift in our lives. Nothing really ever stays the same. I am keeping busy so that is only excuse I have for not posting more. I do try to keep up on twitter as much as I can. That is the only social media I have, btw. I do not have Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat…blah blah blah. So many …it’s crazy. I don’t know how people have time to post to them all. Must be nice to have all that extra time. Haha! 😉

I can’t believe it’s April!! It has been raining a lot in Ca, which I like. It’s a good change from Arizona. I have my office window open right now loving the cool breeze. I can’t say California has grown on me yet, but I am working on it. I did tour a winery recently and that was fun!! Lots of wine tasting and enjoying the beautiful scenery. 🙂 🙂 🙂

I have started getting into my “normal” routine lately and that feels nice. Mediation, exercise and eating healthier has made me feel awesome! Things haven’t been quite normal since the move until recently. Yay! 😉 Moving is just hard… especially to another state.

I hope you are all getting your taxes done, the clock is ticking. I have mine done, but I always wait until the last minute to pay them. I like to hold on to my money for as long as I can. hehe! 😉

I actually ventured out yesterday and went shopping. Omg, I just don’t like to shop anymore. I NEVER thought I would say that. See things do change. Amazon is my friend …and a few stores online. It’s just so much easier!! No traffic or crowds!! Goodies delivered to my door, it’s like Christmas every day. hehe! Well not every day, but a lot!

Everything is starting to bloom, I love this time of the year. In Arizona I had allergies that would be kicking in by now, luckily nothing yet. I am hoping I won’t have allergies here. 🙂 Summer will be here soon…I am ready to have some pool parties and cook outs.

Of course we will be moving again once our lease is up. Oh joy! It won’t be anything like the last move obviously, but still moving just sucks. I will say that not owning a house is a nice stress release. We have been homeowners since 1999 and don’t get me wrong, having a home is nice, but I love the fact that Buzz and I can move anywhere anytime we want without the burden of selling a house. I have no clue when or where we will settle down next. We talk about a lot of different places, it just depends on business. Of course I am still waiting for my cabin in the mountains. Buzz is waiting for his beach house in Mexico. Ha, seems like we are on different pages. LOL 😉

I am off now…lots to do! I hope you all have a great day! I will write more soon…here are some pics that I wanted to share.

Kisses,
Rach

Short & Sweet

Hey hey everyone…how is life treating you so far this year?? I hope good! Mine has been great until I got sick. Ugh..every year it happens after Vegas. Buzz and I both got the flu after AVN…but we are back on our feet. Well at least he is, I am still working on it. When “they” say this is a horrible bug, they are not lying. I have so much work to catch up on. I had an incredible visit with my family, we had so much fun showing them around CA. Thank God I didn’t get sick until the day they left. Lots of great memories and I can’t wait to have them back again. 🙂 🙂 Vegas was crazy fun as usual, it’s always nice seeing everyone and catching up. 😉 I haven’t even went through all my photos yet, but here are a few I wanted to post. I am going to keep this short and sweet today, but I will be sure to write more soon as my energy returns. Muahhhh to you all! 😉

Kisses,
Rach

**Happy 2018**

Good morning!! Wow these last few days have been so accomplishing….love it! My to-do list was out of control and now it’s in control. 🙂 This is my first post of the year, sheesh! Sorry, time flies!! It’s a bit chilly in CA right now…some rain here and snow in the mountains which is always so beautiful. A bunch of us are going to be planning a ski trip to play in the snow soon. Las Vegas is right around the corner…oh boy! 😉 My parents are coming to visit too…lots of excitement. 😉 I think I am needing a Mexico trip SOON as well. I was looking at some photos the other day and am feeling the need to go back. I just love Mexico, I will probably live there someday. Before my cabin in the mountains? Or after? Hmmmm not sure yet, but time will tell. Life is so much fun …isn’t it? It’s such a blessing every day!!! 🙂 🙂 It’s a gift and never should be taken for granted.

I hope you are enjoying 2018 so far!! You know me…just spending a lot of time with my fur babies and enjoying Ca. I have been kicking ass at the gym and I also started juicing again. I overall eat healthy, but that damn pizza just keeps calling my name. hehe! Everything in moderation right? 😉

I need to get going, sorry so short today. I will write more soon!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend…go Vikings!! 🙂 🙂

Kisses,
Rach

Ready for 2018?

Goooood morning! I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!! I am! I had a great Christmas with friends. 🙂 It was a bit different not seeing my family, but still fun. I do miss them a lot! They already got their tickets to come visit me in January. Yay! So many fun things to plan…I am excited!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Are you ready for 2018?? It has been an interesting year for sure! Some ups …some downs and lots of changes. I am feeling more at home every day, geesh I swear I didn’t know it would take this long. I have days where I REALLY miss Arizona, but I know moving was the best thing at this time. I am a big believer in “timing is everything!!” After the New Year I am ready to start venturing out again to explore Ca. Seriously where does the time go? Every year just goes faster.

I don’t have a lot of time to write today…but I wanted to make sure I stopped by to wish you all a safe and happy 2018!! I will write more soon…talk to you all next year! 😉

Kisses,
Rach
