Various stuff

After last week being so busy, you’d think I’d have taken the weekend to just rest and relax. Nope! I took Melody, her Grandma Marie and met her Grandma Alice down in Fashion Island in Newport Beach to browse the playhouses they have set up there. The playhouses are for kids, yes, 10’x8’x10′ so they aren’t big, but in their smallness, they are nicer than even one room in my entire house. They have flat screen TVs, hardwood floors, lofts, green lighting, fountains, custom cabinetry, and one even has a “hockey” rink in its backyard and a place for the virtual zamboni, yes sponsored by the Mighty Ducks. These little playhouses are not for the faint of heart or light of pocketbook. Each year, builders and businesses sponsor the creation of the playhouses and they are then auctioned off to the highest bidder. We down here at the bottom assume the highest bidder has a backyard or two that could support the playhouse, fully landscaped and outfitted. Ahem, I don’t think one of these playhouses would fit IN my backyard let alone my pocketbook, but I digress. We had a great time, played in several fountains, rode the carousel, went to lunch. Pictures are posted in the gallery, along with some other pictures from other random days including Melody’s foray into cheerleading for the Angels.

Next, I’ve nicked the following from my friend Mary Beth’s blog, who nicked it from Dani, lol. Enjoy and feel free to copy and paste into an email, deleting my answers and adding your own, then forward to all your friends, copying the person who sent it to you… heh.

  1. LOL! I stole a few of Dani’s responses too. I’m assuming current “pain” and “dentist” are related? Ok off to look at the pictures!

  2. Well it wasn’t possible to say “painmedswearingoff” as one word, lol. Yes, I wound up with three fillings instead of one and I am in a lot of pain tonight. Ouch!
