August 2021

Exciting, fun, sad, busy month. I saw some Zumba friends I hadn't seen in almost two years. I had lunch with Kathy for the first time since before Covid. I met my First Best Friend who I don't remember. LOL. I got together with the Walnut Country Pre-School moms. Saw my sister a couple of times. And it's always fun when we play a fun Bocce Team.

The Guest Room is in usable condition. Actually, it won't be until the current project is done. Remodel of the guest bathroom and re-tiling that entire area. Laundry room, bar, bathroom. Area rug belongs in my She Shed, just trying it on. The little desk is on the Little Honey Bunch Do List to be painted white.

Natalie was at Philthy Clean Tattoo with what would be her last tattoo there with her brother tattoo artist.

This is a video of the morning:

All of the murals he painted inside are destroyed but the outside one, survived. The owner is looking for a new location in Berkeley. He has two other locations in Woodland and Fairfield.

I hope they keep it in whatever happens to the building.

ANYWAY, I finally got together with my First Best Friend who I don't remember. Story of how she found me is in my January 2021 post. We had lunch at Groveside Bistro. Kerry brought a scrapbook with her that belonged to her sister Bernadette, may she Rest In Peace. Bernadette was my sister Eme's (Celia) best friend. There was this adorable note saying Eme was one of her best friends.

Couldn't help posting us again.

My name is Rosy, Chacha, Meez, Mama, Mother...take your pick. I am the sort of stay at home mother of 4. Sort of because of my Zumba and my Rodan and Fields jobs.

This is my personal blog intended for my family and friends and for anyone out there who enjoys a good laugh, likes to try out new recipes, likes kittens and loves Zumba. Welcome!

My loves are my Honey Bunch, my children, my family, friends and Zumba. My Zumba site:

One of my favorite sites and one I'll be ideas from. (Hmmm. I already see my Nerd font is similar to hers. Hers is Edwardian Script and Mine is Beautiful ES.)

This is my nieces blog. She's cute: needs a facelift and makeover. I'll be working on that, too.

They need you.
