June 30, 2015

We had a wonderful start to today, in that I got up very early, before 06:00 and managed to get a few things done (and cleaned) before Linda got home. That's right, Linda came home today. She is back from that road trip she took with her parents, up to Utah. They went up there to spend a few days with Linda's sister, Lisa, and it sounds like it was a good trip. On the way up they stopped at a few other places and saw some other family and friends, including a stop in the S.F. Bay Area. We're just glad that she is home safely and that Joe and Jess made is back home as well, after dropping Linda off. What happened was that they drove down, and when they were in San Bernadino (or close) they called and we drove up to Fallbrook, to meet them. As it turned out, they arrived about two (2) minutes after we did. I hadn't even finished getting the van closed back up, when they drove up. It sure felt good to see Linda, and the girls (yeah, we had them with us) were all over Grandma, when they saw her. We all walked through the house and after a short visit, Joe and Jess took off to go back up to their place and we took off south.

Like I said, we were up in Fallbrook, and you know we're going to go see the property once we get there. The appliances are all installed, now and the place looks great. There really isn't much left to be done, except for stuff out side the house. We all had a wonderful time walking through the house and seeing all that had been done. This was Jason's first visit to the house in several weeks, so he saw some big changes. Everything is really looking exceptional.

Imagine that, the month of June is over and perhaps we can get out of this "June-Gloom" that we're going through down in San Diego. We even had thunderstorms and rain today, on top of the humidity that we usually don't have. Don't get me wrong, the weather here is generally pretty good, and I found out that up in Livermore, where we're from, they hit 109 - and that is a bit toasty, even for me. On a positive - the rain knocked some of the dirt off the car - - - okay, now the car really looks like it needs to be washed. I am hoping that the drought doesn't last much longer. We really do need the rain, and I don't like not being able to wash my own car. There are plenty of car washes in Pt. Loma, so they do tend to stay relatively clean. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. The only true source of peace and hope! Praying as always!
    Romans 5:1-4 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope.

  2. Know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
    Romans 5:6-9 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
