050924 My Mom Is Moving To Ventura & New Arrivals!


Happy Thursday!  My mom flew in on Sunday night and arrived at my house at 11 pm.  Long travel day for her!  She is going to sell her beach house in Bellingham, Washington this summer and relocate to Ventura.  Great news!  This is a photo of her deck with all of us on it at her birthday a few years back.


The day after she arrived, my mom let me know that her leg had swollen up on the plane and she thought we should have it checked out. So we headed to Cottage Urgent Care on Victoria. They took a look at her and said get to the hospital. That was a fun 8 hour excursion. In any event, she is just fine. But, it was better to get it checked out.

In case you are wondering, my mom WON’T be moving in with me!   I have too much going on in my life to live with a parent and my mom totally understands that & doesn’t want to live with me anyway…LOL!   So the day after the emergency room saga, we decided to check out some of Ventura’s Independent Living Places.

My mom is very active socially and the places we saw were amazing.  First was The Palms at Bonaventure in East Ventura and then the Ventura Townehouse.  The Townhouse was my favorite!  Harvey even invited us to stay for dinner.  Fabulous!  And free wine 🙂

Here are some pics of the unit we checked out with Harvey.

My mom will be living here in Ventura permanently after the summer.  I am so excited for her next new chapter.  It is gonna be a fun one!  She will be a fixture at the store so please stop in and say hello!

In sad news, this past Friday night we went to a Celebration of life for Matt Gray.  Heartbreaking. He was one of the first people I met when I moved to Ventura.  Such a great guy!

The turnout for his celebration was amazing!  It was at Surf Rodeo Headquarters.  A wonderful tribute to a wonderful human.  I am heartbroken for his kids and grandkids.

In happier news, Sandy and I are invited to a super cool party this upcoming Saturday night.  I am still deciding if I should invite a date.  Maybe…Maybe not?   In any event, I can’t wait!  It is my friend Pam Cole’s birthday party at her home in Agoura Hills.  Apparently, it is a semi formal dinner/dance with a 10 piece band.  FANCY!

Here are Pam and I back in the day when we lived in Brentwood right after college.

Before I forget, Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there!  It is NOT an easy job and we appreciate you!  Me and Mor Mor back in the day!  Matching outfits…

Candy came to visit last week from Northern Cal….we missed her!  It was great to have her back working in the store!  AND Val and Sandy also popped in.  I love these girls!  So grateful to have them all in my life!

Don’t forget that Susan Wheelan and I are offering an incredible new design service….
