    That's what they say. On Saturday I rode my scooter without a jacket. Yay! I love that! I spent the day in a shady redwood grove playing music. Then I took a long nap. I didn't notice humidity. Today, Sunday, I went for a morning hike. Oh my god I was sweating so much! It was hot and not terribly humid but just enough to notice. I'm used to single-digit humidity! But at least it was another good scooter weather day.

    I miss the sessions we used to have. I was terrible at it (flute), but I loved the music so much. Our session is gone now so I play old-time instead. I've slowly but surely learned to play the fiddle little-by-little attending the jam. Today I suddenly played Hennessy's on my fiddle. Damn, now I get what "fiddle tunes" means. So much easier than the flute.

    I had a glass of wine on Saturday night. It was so hot and there it was in the box in the fridge (nothing but the best for us!) It really didn't taste good at all. I was sorry I drank it. I had lemonade instead today. Much much tastier.

    It seems there is a session somewhere close by everywhere I go- why do I think you're in Santa Monica? I know it's a drive, but have you been to The Ould Sod in San Diego? That's a good one. I don't know Hennessy's but ill learn it in case I ever see you in a do.

If I can survive the first two nights by myself, the rest will be much easier.
    That'll be a good start. Hubs and I just got in from sushi and yeah I had the sake, but I didn't get tipsy- so does it still count?

    Well, it's been 2 full weeks for me now, alcohol and caffeine free. I've been to a lot of social gatherings. They are a little less fun without alcohol, but not horrible. The real challenge will come next weekend while camping since there's really nothing else to do; I won't be able to distract myself by making jewelry or painting a room or any of the other things I typically do as a distraction.

    Well. This doesn't have anything to do with anything. But you guys are nice people so I think you'll understand. Today would have been my dear husband's 46th birthday. I miss him quite a bit. I'm not sure what this has to do with drinking because I don't feel more or less compelled. Did I spell that right? It just is what it is... I did have wine tonight with the steaks I cooked for his birthday. He was an awesome cook and I have made myself learn how to cook a damn fine steak on the grill he left behind.
    Breathe. Move forward.

    I just eat what I want...

    I gave it up about four months ago.

    No sugar or alcohol in any material amounts anymore. Much better results in the gym, that's for sure.

    I'm not cutting back... but I drink maybe two glasses of wine a week. Not a heavy drinker.

    So sorry you lost him so young.

    Oh boy I can relate! I'm on summer break in college right now and two weeks ago drank five days out of the week! I decided that I'd deal with my fear of missing out by going out and not drinking. I have to tell you, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. No one even really seemed to notice because I still included myself in dancing, conversation, and the frequent cheers! Jus try it once and maybe you won't mind going out without drinking that one or two weekdays a week.
