Well…on the first Thursday of the month, I join other bloggers with a recap of the previous month with a sentence (or two) every day! I think I missed the date to share this blog with everybody! So I’m sending it out late (again). I started this month while on vacation – driving a portion of the PCH with my sister. I hope you enjoy the “sentence a day” blog for October. It’s a great way to get to know me…by getting an insight into my every day. Read along to see how October was for me!

10/1: On a PCH road trip with my sister that started on 9/27/18. Today we explored Pebble Beach, even walked a few holes on the golf course. Had lunch at The Bench at The Lodge at hole #18. We road horses on the beach. We had dinner at Aliotti’s Italian restaurant in Pacific Grove, CA.
10/2: Drive from Santa Cruz to San Francisco. Had lunch at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. Checked into our hotel and then walked to Pier 39 on Fisherman’s Wharf to see the sea lions and then to Ghirardelli Square for ice cream. We road the trolley from start to finish and then had a late dinner at In & Out Burger.
10/3: Rented a GoCar for the entire day and it took us all around San Francisco via GPS and told us all about the sites and history. It was a really fun way to see the city. We also got a personal tour of Anchor Brewing Company from a friend of mine.
10/4: Drove to Napa and explored about 10 wineries and even 1 brewery. Met Brenda Kinsel in Sonoma for dinner. We had a blast getting to know each other! Got into town late but still drove to see the Painted Ladies and up/down some hills (no traffic) before getting to the hotel.

10/19: I worked from home while the contractors finished up the closet renovation. I finished painting the closet and the loft area.
10/20: The 12th anniversary of Brian’s death. I didn’t have much motivation today. I am consumed with the thoughts of his last day and what he went through. I do this every year – I can’t help it. Leading up to his anniversary I seem to be preoccupied with the thoughts of death – Brian’s death, my mom’s death, anybody in the news, even me dying, etc.

10/22: I went to body pump after work. I’ve missed so many classes and boy it was tough!
