Amazing succulants

Love these big succulants. There were probably a dozen clumped together in one part of the campground we were staying in.

Thai Peruvian Lunch in Ventura

Table and chairs outside the Thai Peruvian restaurant we ate at in Ventura. We drove there from the campground for lunch. The elephant chairs were so heavy we could hardly move them. Each was carved from a solid log!

Wish I didn't have this shot

Boo hoo. That’s the smashed in back bumper of my sweet little Toyota on the left, and the front end of the SUV that rear-ended me on the freeway Thursday morning.

I’m okay. Everyone involved was okay. The SUV looked okay. The car she pushed me forward into looked okay.

I have $6000.00 damage to my car. I had just come to a stop five feet behind the vehicle in front of me when the SUV hit. My car did what it was supposed to and saved my life and limb.

My hands were shaking pretty badly when I took this shot, but I did get a clear one of just her SUV.

My cairn Tuesday 10/4/2005

Took this while giving my mom the yard tour. She hasn’t been here in almost a year. Lots has changed. Even the cairn, which the neighbor’s cat or the meter reader manage to knock over every few weeks.

Flowers Monday, 10/3/2005

I bought these flowers at the grocery store on the way home, in anticipation of my mother arriving on Tuesday. I’m writing this entry almost a week later, and they still look great!

Papyrus - Sunday 10/2/2005

Okay… Found my camera cable. I should probably have taken a photo of where I found it, so I can find it again should I ever lay it there again.

I thought I should get a shot of this papyrus before it goes brown for the winter and has to be cut back. I’m so happy this is surviving. It said on the tag that it does’t do well in windy areas, but my DH and I really wanted to give it a try, in spite of our windy area. Yay! It’s been lovely.
