Mooching Breakfast Among the Flowers

Not a lot of other flower buyers out at 6:30 in the morning, but there should have been.  I have to confess that, but for this year of “We Nevers,” I would have never seen the inside of those two warehouses in downtown LA, bursting with every type and color of hydrangea, orchid, lily and … Continue reading »

He loves me, he loves me not…

Well, Gilbert loved me after all the flowers I bought from him (see picture below).  This morning, before the sun was up (thus the title WAKE UP and smell the roses!), Lisa and I drove to downtown LA to the flower market.  This is one of those things we had heard a lot about and … Continue reading »

The Blog’s Finally Up!

Week 3’s choice of activity was equal parts, “Never done this before” and “If we don’t make setting up a blog our New Experience this week, we just may never get it done.”  Well we finally did it, Mom!  Now hopefully you’ll join our moms and read our blog every week and provide us with … Continue reading »

Today, I feel like Betty White…

Remember when she says she is on Facebook and “The Twitter?”?  Well, that is a bit of what I felt like today, trying to start our/my first blog.  On one note, it was quite easy.  On another, I had a few “senior momments” as I call them when trying to figure out what to do … Continue reading »

Too Much Enthusiasm?

Riddle This: What happens when you put two people with a “we’re up for anything” kind of attitude in a roomful of Kabbalah enthusiasts and give them a free one-hour lecture on the secrets of this ancient philosophy?  Apparently, they get sucked into signing up for a series of Kabbalah lessons. And that is how … Continue reading »

If it is good enough for Madonna…

Yes, we went to a Kabbalah meeting.  No, there was no chanting, candles or sacrifices of any kind. It was, to be totally honest, quite interesting.  It is not a religion but a way to look at things that will make you a happier and more fulfilled person.  What I have learned so far (yes, … Continue reading »

Unexpected Side Effects

I know it’s not everyone’s idea of something that they have to do…but since moving to Manhattan Beach, I’ve wanted to walk all day long to see how far I could get.  My family would argue that they’ve had their unfair share of all-day walking when I force them on what they call my “holiday … Continue reading »

You want to what???

Yes, that was my response to Lisa when she said “How about we walk until we can’t walk anymore and see how far we can get.”  As some of you know, working out is not my thing. I joke that the last time I went to the gym, Carter was President.  The reason that it … Continue reading »

Lisa

I just experienced a sad finish to a wonderful phase in my life.  I had started a toy company with a great friend and we had to finally let go.  Running your own company is exciting and fun but also means falling asleep too many nights with your laptop open on your lap and still … Continue reading »

Erin

Mid-life crisis?  Maybe.  First I bought a convertible 4 seater (there are 5 members of my family).  Then I agreed to do this. I was thrilled when Lisa suggested this.  I have been working for as long as I can remember and the idea of doing something new each week was a way to insure … Continue reading »
