Confession of a Helpless Dreamer

Sometimes when the weather is as hot as it's been I like to imagine that I'm out kayaking in the Back Bay or floating down a peaceful river watching the shore line drift slowly by. In reality I don't even own a kayak, nor have I ever been, but I would like to some day.
So I am so sorry to have led you all astray, but wasn't it fun dreaming about the adventure? I know I enjoyed it!
Oh! By the way, the pictures are all props from Disney's California Adventure. Yes, the lovely little abandoned structure is too and I still think it would make a quaint little cafe.

In case you didn't notice my deceptive post was titled, "Wishful Thinking." What can I say, " I am a helpless dreamer."  Well, I think I'm going to head over to that little river of mine before it gets too hot. California Adventure I mean...tee hee!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and try to stay out of the heat ;-).

xoxo Cori

I grew up in Hacienda Heights...know where that is? Our littl 900SF home had crank out windows and had NO AIR CONDITIONING! It was insurfferable in the summertime! My daddy would set up fans around us kids but they did little help the sweltering heat. In Oklahoma you almost can't live without the AC. We have high humidity here and I would surely PASS OUT in my two story house if not for that fabulous COOLING MACHINE.

You have the mountains and the beach you STILL WIN!

Love your sweet Post! Have fun!

You did *get* me! But you never know about how everyone *lives* out there in blogland...we're all so different(so ya never know) and yet so much the same.
Now, in *my* dreams is more what I can understand!
Are you staying cool, that is the important's almost over, right?!
Have a wonderful, relaxing, dreamy

Cori...I lived in HHeights from Kindergarten until 1974. After 10th grade we moved to Colorado Springs where my father finished up some schooling for the ministry. When I visit the Heights now it is VERY sad for me...almost shocking. The town was growing by leaps and bounds when we moved away but NOTHING like it is today. I would NEVER return to live there...never.

I crave the ocean and it is the one thing I miss about living on the West Coast. But...we do have lovely places here in OK. The people are wonderful...and the pace of living is slower. I actually love it now. And...I can NEVER EVER AGAIN live without AC! Never!

Thanks for visiting friend. Be back again soon!

Oh girl I'm ready for this heat to blow away along with the fires. Dear just now got the computer to let me type on the keyboard. I have no faith in the computer and if I will continue to be able to leave comments...
My son and DIL finally went on the underground tour in Seattle and really enjoyed it. I haven't been yet...
Have a wonderful weekend.
Willow and I went to two thrift stores today and I spent way under $10.00.

HA! Good one. I am still quite impressed with you despite not owning a kayak! **blows kisses** Deb

And I will soak up to my nose again. A bit of an increase today - up to 116, but the water is only 96.

I knew you were dreaming, but I like to dream, too. Like right now. I am dreaming I am at home instead of work. ;-)
