I think we are on the 'post-a-month' plan now. This week I was reminded of how this year is turning into a time of appreciating things that we may not have next year. For example--for the last 2 years we have had a membership to the LA Arboretum. The arboretum is one of our favorite places in LA, and each time I go I seem to discover something new. Our membership expired in April, and we determined that it would not be worth it to renew since we will not live in LA for the next year. I was mourning that I would not feel the same freedom to go there on a whim if I would have to pay the entrance fee every time, and wondering where I would go when I needed to be alone and outside. Then, this week, Bob came home one day with a surprise for me. You guessed it--he bought me a pass! I was so amazed and felt so loved! So, may the gallivanting with the flowers continue, at least for this year. :)

Another thing we are savoring this year is going to Dodgers games. Last week we got the rare opportunity to sit in the 'good seats', where the players actually looked life-size! It was fun to look UP at the press-box and WAY-UP to where we normally sit in the top deck! Hopefully this doesn't spoil our fun, since the rest of the games we attend this year will be from the birds-eye view in the top deck. :)
