California’s annoying warmth and sunshine

California’s annoying warmth and sunshine

apartment, Dec. 26, 2013I have a tendency to work straight through the day from when I get up at 7 am. Fortunately, I have a dog who insists on being taken out so I walk every few hours wearing a t-shirt and shorts.

But I just had another interruption: It’s 82 degrees outside here in Huntington Beach and the sun is blazing in through my window onto my computer screen, so I was forced to break my concentration, get up, and close the blinds.

Nearby is a picture I just took from my balcony, about 2:15 pm the day after Christmas.

Life here can be difficult.

    I was up at 5:00AM read through the papers then woke up the Love of my life, put the kayaks in the truck and headed to the Long Beach marina. The Southern California weather can’t be beat!! The politics of our state is another issue!! 🙂
