The busy season

Look closely and you'll see the ocean shimmering beneath that ominous cloud. Pre-teen girl had a couple of soccer scrimmages in Malibu over the weekend and she played early to beat the rain. That's the view from the soccer field at Malibu High. Nice, huh?

Life's been crazy-crazy busy lately, more so than I like. We all have our seasons of that, and this seems to be mine. I could've skipped the soccer match and stayed behind to work, but something about driving along PCH on a drizzly day drew me. Teen daughter and I watched my girlie play soccer while huddled beneath a wool blanket, then we left just as the first few drops fell. We stopped for coffee in the Trancas area, then enjoyed the ride along the coast (thanks, hubby :)

Today, it's back to work! How about you? Did you get the chance to enjoy the weekend, even if only for a little while? Maybe a little Oscar party or something? Lol Hope so!

Have a beachy day, my friends ~ wherever you are!

I love all the beach pics that you post. They make me happy since I am far from the coast! I did enjoy some of the Oscars. Did you? You ready for American Idol tonight??

I was so lucky to be apart of a leadership retreat from Friday afternoon until Saturday night!! It was relaxing and rejuvenating!! Then on Sunday my little man had his last wrestling tournament for the season & ended it undefeated :0)

Thanks mywalk for the comment! Yes, we dropped everything and watched AI last night. Kind of a bonding thing around here :)

Ronel, glad you enjoyed the retreat. Sounds fabulous. And I remember reading about your noodle's wrestling match on FB. Cute!
