Last week in Santa Paula

This is our last week here in Santa Paula and we’re getting ready to leave.  Like two kids who put off doing their science projects, we have to confront any chore we put off for the last three months.  Needless to say, there has been a flurry of activity that included several trips to our storage.  One of the most dreaded tasks was organizing documentation for David, the CPA who prepares our taxes.  It used to take longer, but the task still burns most of a day.  Dropping the package into his capable hands is always a relief.

Despite all the activity, Jeanne found time to spend a day watching the grandkids.  The school they go to is on break, so it worked out well for everyone.  One morning, Danny and I hit some golf balls at the driving range.  Finally, one evening we didn’t want to sit around the coach so we headed for the shopping mall to window shop.  Big mistake.  Jeanne ended up with a new leather coat we found at a price that was too good to pass up.  Next time, we’ll stay home.

Now, if only the weather cooperates over the next few days. . .
