Picnic

Not going to lie but I have been here in this very spot may times in the last week but it has not been easy. Just sitting here now is making me all frigidity.  Am I nervous? No, just uncomfortable. The weather lately makes the nerves in my spine feel extra sensitive and it makes sitting for more than 5 to 10 minutes a task.  Luckily, I am not much of a TV watcher as that would h ave made my life miserable.  Usually, when I do watch something, it is a movie that I have seen probably 20 times previously.  I spent most of last week out in the garden, making candles, pickling stuff and walking around taking pictures where ever I could.  Having chronic pain, I have read many self-help books and many of the tell you to find something to take your mind off of the pain, so that is what I did.  The Coachella Valley was beautiful that is for sure. The skies were blue and full of fluffy clouds.  We even got a few rain drop and snow in the mountains.  As nice as it was, I am glad that this weather will be moving on for the season.

Right now 38 Special is singing about Second Chances and all I can think about is when is this ringing in my ears going to stop.  Yes, that is a new thing that is happening now!  What can I say, I make my own music!!! Ha ha!

Yesterday, we got out for a bit.  I really liked that as we haven’t been out much lately.  Hopefully, we will get out of this valley soon as I am getting cabin fever.  Long car rides are not too comfortable but it sure beats sitting at home.  Last night we went to a four star fast food establishment, well at least here in California, In-N-Out Burger.

if given the choice of a 4 star sit down restaurant or In-N-Out – I will always choose In-N-Out…

I love these special “dinner dates”.  Hubby will find a spot here in the Coachella Valley to stop at and we will eat in the car.  I had my camera yesterday so I took photos of him. I did an impromptu shoot.  I really liked the location and would like to come back to shoot here again.

Also, I received the shirt I ordered and hubby took a few photos of me.  Love the shirt!

Here is the back side of this cool utility hut located in Thousand Palms.  I really like this hut.  A few years ago when I was still driving, I used to get up early in the morning and drive around the with my camera and take photos. Somehow, I always ended up at this hut and that old tree and this is where we had dinner. I tell ya, I love this valley for the views.
