Grooving to the Beat at the Libbey Bowl

This past Saturday, I had a great time with some friends at the Ojai Classic Rock and Reggae Festival.  It took place at the Libbey Bowl, as do most great events here, and it was filled with good music, great vibes and some fun people.  Well, make that some rather funky people.  I think these […]

A Spanish Paradise…the Azu Restaurant

So, I’m not going to tell you too much about my recent date, since my good ‘ol mom reads this blog, but I will tell you all about the food.  One word – YUM!  We went for a first date to Azu which is a Spanish restaurant on Ojai Avenue.  It was completely over-the-top, out-of-this-world […]

Getting Down to Business for the Bro

My brother is coming for a visit to Ojai (I’ve been lobbying for this for quite awhile!) and I’m running around like a maniac trying to figure out what we should do.  He’s a successful lawyer in Arizona (don’t ask how he ended up there) with two adorable little kids.  So, I’m taking a week […]

Art in the Park with Libbey

This weekend I had an amazing time at Libbey Park. And it wasn’t because I was dragging Bernie around as he checked out every female dog in the vicinity.  I actually left Bernie home this time, and went to Libbey to check out the art in the park scene.  This was, according to the flyers […]

Shopping with the Girls

I tend to stay in my tennis whites most of the time, and when I’m not wearing those, I’m most likely found in sweats and a big t-shirt.  This weekend, however, my friends got the crazy idea that it was time for some more grown-up clothing. (What’s grown-up about clothing anyway?) So, against my better […]

Bernie and I: A Love Begins

No, mom, I haven’t met the man of my dreams.  Sorry to disappoint.  Geez…. Rather, I’ve met…well…how shall I put this? The dog of my dreams! So, one of my friends here in Ojai had to move back to the East Coast (have fun with those winters!) and she asked me if I wanted her […]

Happy Trails To You

I’ve been trying to get myself to wake up early each morning and to enjoy the fresh air before work.  As you probably know already, I’m not a morning person, which makes it very difficult for me to confront the day before 10 or 11 in the morning. But, as I can hear my mom […]

Can’t Get Over this Winter Weather

I’m a Minnesota girl at heart, so it’s still so hard for me to believe that it’s winter each year here in California.  I mean, come on! I’m still wearing shorts some days, and we are out on the courts playing tennis for hours at a time without frost bite. It’s like a dream come […]
