Max woke me up so early!!! I heard him walking around so I pretended to be sleep but then he tried to curl up with and accidentally knocked my iPad off the table. Now I’m wide awake. I went to bed really late but for some reason I don’t feel tired and it’s not even 6am yet!
I left all the sliding glass doors open last night and now I can hear all the activity on the bay and in the city. I’m in San Francisco now and then LA later in the week. 
I think it’s going to be hot today. We are leaving around noon for Napa valley. It’s about an hour from my house here. My friend asked my son to take their “save the date” photo for their wedding invitation. We are going to the winery where her fiancé asked her to marry him to take the photos. We are going to make a whole day out of it. Take a picnic lunch, visit a few wineries, and one brewery. It is just so beautiful there. The first stop is St Helena, a very lovely town.  I feel like I’ve been to the wine country a lot lately lol. Good thing it’s so close. 
I will be going to Las Vegas a lot too. I have three trips planned in the coming months, and two trips to NYC. The first Las Vegas trip will be our girls weekend get a way, then a work related trip, and then my friend’s bachelorette party. For NYC there is one voice over convention and then my friend is showing his work at one of the art galleries. I promised him I would come to the opening. I’ll probably stay with my friend in Brooklyn but the gallery is in Manhattan. 
Now Max is sound asleep again!! Silly dog. He wakes me up and then goes back to sleep, and now I’m wide awake. I need to run 6 miles sometime this weekend so I should probably do it today. I’ll have several cups of coffee first. Lol. I think I’ll drive to the ferry building on my island because there is a beautiful path to run on out there. But right now I’ll sip my coffee and get back to reading that book. It was so good I couldn’t put it down last night. (But Max knocked it down this morning!!! I use the Kindle app on my iPad. Lol)   Her life is so much like mine in many ways. I was highlighting certain quotes. I like to do that with some of my Kindle books. Then I can go back and read passages that provoke thought…….and make me think about my life as well. :)

Rock Quotes

“……but it wasn’t that…….it was something else about him…..something she had never felt before. But she couldn’t afford those feelings now. He was a stranger to her, she reminded herself, and she had a life to live.?A life which didn’t include him.”

Wow! I was just thinking about this right this second. Intuition!!! Yes………trust it.
I just updated my vision board to include this loft in NoHo. I hope I get it! Sent all the paperwork this morning!!
Ya it means big changes………but I think I’m ready. Everything in my life is good but not perfect. And now I have the opportunity to make it perfect. The gig (if it pans out,) will more than pay for this apartment and the life changes involved. If I don’t book this gig I still have enough to pay for the move. 
I really like NoHo. Not everyone likes this area of LA but I do. And I’m sure the new people in my life will be happy with my decision. It’s a win win.

Nirvana, North Hollywood, November 1991

Wow this is really cool.  Nirvana in North Hollywood.  1991  Fast forward to 2014 and here I am contemplating a lease for an apartment in NoHo.   I need to decide in a couple of days.  If I sign on the dotted line………my life will change drastically.  I will need to say adios to many people.  Perhaps…….it is the right time. :)

Tonight we are going to celebrate my daughter’s boyfriend’s birthday.  I really hope he likes my gift.  My daughter thinks he will. ;)  I decided to give him his first passport.  Does that sound funny?  lol  He had never traveled outside of the bay area until we took him to Lake Tahoe for two weeks.  And like most people, after leaving your home town for that long you get bitten by the travel bug.  He fell in love with Tahoe and learned so much about it after being there for two weeks.  We had a lot of long talks on the beach about Europe, the United Kingdom, South America, the Caribbean, and of course the United States (NY, Hawaii, Alaska, and more.)  My kids are so lucky that they started traveling so young so they have been all over the world many times over.  They have had three passports or more each (when you are young they expire every 5 years.)  But her boyfriend has never had a passport and he really wants to go to Europe with us next summer so……I thought I would pay for his first one.  I went to the post office yesterday and picked up the application and last night my daughter and I went to TJ Maxx and picked out a really nice suitcase.  I am going to put the application inside with a note for him to complete it and then I will mail it in for him. Yesterday while in the car we were telling him a funny story about something that happened to us in Rome and he said “wow you guys have had so many interesting adventures.”  I looked at him in my rear view mirror.  He was looking out the window at the streets of Oakland and I knew his mind was trying to visualize the streets of Rome.  I told him warmly “Stick with us.  We’ll get you there.”
