HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
It was an amazingly quiet end to 2014! We hung out with our puppies all morning long, then "the girls" went shopping in the Galleria Mall. You know, shops like Coach, Gucci, Rolex ..... pretty much out of MY price range and I came home empty handed. Shocker, I know!!! I'll make up for it today or tomorrow when I wander over to Sur La Table kitchen store, one block away. I promise I won't buy more than I can carry!!
In the afternoon, we went to an obscure little Thai restaurant on Verdugo Street. From the outside, your first thought is to turn around and go back to Burger King on the corner. The menu was a cross between Thai and Indian ... totally not what I expected. I finally found the familiar Pad Thai, which I love, and turns out the food was excellent, as was the service!!
The Elks parking lot began to fill up around 6:30, and I expected to wake up several times during the night from the celebrations. It never happened!! Weird thing is, I never heard one firecracker, gunshot or siren the entire night ... and you KNOW how lightly I sleep!!
I do have one complaint about Southern California ... it's COLD!!! What's up with that?? I thought it was supposed to be sunny and warm!! This morning's temperature is 36 with a low of 34 tomorrow night. Those parade entrants and watchers are going to be freezing this morning!! That's why I'm spending the morning in my rig, cuddled with the puppies and the heater going full blast!! Just please say a little prayer that my propane lasts until Sunday, when I'll mosey on down to Indio. At least there I'll have a 30 amp plug to keep me warm!!
Again, Happy New Year to you and your family ... I hope 2015 brings us all love, laughter and adventure!!
