The last couple of days I have had calls from very good friends. I am so thankful for those who love me and want to spend their time with me, be it by phone, email, Facebook, or at our home. Friends are the fabric of life and I treasure every person I have ever met, even ones who are no longer a part of my life. Loving people on this planet is part of why we are here. I don't know what the other part is, because my life is pretty full of love for people and for my animals. Thank you to each one of you who read this and know that you are one of those friends that I treasure.

Today I had a dentist appointment. The card said 10:00 so I was there at the appointed time only to find out that it was 1:00 instead. Hmm...what to do with three hours. I decided to find the Bead World store in Kirkland. I found a place that said parking 2 hours and parked my van. There were no meters to feed. Hmm...that's odd! The store didn't open until 11:00 so I walked around looking for places to get my hair cut. I found a great place and they had just had somebody not show up so they said they could do an immediate appointment. I had planned to just make an appointment. They probably looked at my hair and thought "This lady NEEDS a haircut!" So, haircut over, and I'm at the bead store which is phenomenal. Then I go out to my car and there is a ticket. I guess the Kirkland downtown is known for its shady way of getting driver's money. It so happened that they called the parking 2 hours place a loading zone. No good information about that except for two cars down the track. I'm writing a letter along with my fee.

So, it was a serendipitous type day which was quite fun, and a frustrating one with the Kirkland Meter Maids.

For those of you who tried to look up Zentangles I led you astray. It is www.zengangle.com
So sorry for the misleading information. It is a great newsletter.

1. Finding a swimsuit in January is hard.
2. Beignet got her collar made a little smaller and she is a little bit more happy but still really mad at me.
3. Beignet hates getting her three medicines every day.
4. With my new unfortunately larger size I needed Hawaii shirts, so Beignet and I went shopping after her vet appointment and I found three really great ones at 50% off already marked down price.
5. I love finding a good deal, especially when it only takes 15 minutes.
6. The wind blew too hard today for me to do fern rescue in out ditch which will be cleaned out by the county tomorrow.
7. Google cried and cried at dinner time. His sister Yahoo was hiding under the covers on the bed and he couldn't find her.
8. I am hopelessly addicted to Zentangles (.com). Look it up. I bought the kit, but you can get the ideas online from the newsletter.
9. I'm still needing a daily nap four months after H1N1, but I was unusually ill with it.
10.I miss Sam and Aimee and John.
