Vacation Days, Graduations, PicNic's

Took a couple of days off work.

Purchased a new air conditioner and
had to make some major furniture
arrangements to fit it in the window so
the cord could reach.
Since hubby is still job searching he
was available to help.



I was exhausted and every muscle hurt. hah

Since we worked so hard on
Thursday - Friday was going
to be play, relax and enjoy day.

Woke up early and headed out
for breakfast.

Oh I love their Avacado Benie !

It was such a gorgeous day we headed down to
Pier Village. It is on the ocean and has shops
and food joints.

 After shopping we found  a nice bench, enjoyed the sun
and people watching. The ocean was beautiful also.

We shopped at Carter & Cavero.


I tried a sample of the Chocolate Balsalmic vinegar.
It was pretty good.


Hubby treated himself to some Fig Jam.


Then we headed home and I was going to
completely relax.  My Aunt lives next
door and has a nice deck.
Read a little Guideposts.  Love this magazine.


Saturday up early to do laundry.

Nice breakfast at our favorite diner.
I love their Avacado Benie.

Then we were invited to a free seminar.
It was really informative about healthy
living and eating. Dr Proodian is Armenian
like my husband and a Christian.
After the seminar it was time for a Graduation Party.
This guy here graduated.
I can hardly believe it, I have known him
since he was born.  Way to go Joseph!
He is off to college.
The party was wonderful blessed to visit with
so many friends and a special visit from
our dear friends Ian and Rosemary from
The food was fantastic these friends
know how to do it. hah
Grilled clams, salmon, strip steak,
chicken wings, all kinds of salads, hamburgers,
hot dogs, ice cream cake, chocolates
from England.   So good!
Sunday we went my mother-in laws
