We're away in Palm Springs enjoying the sunshine and golf.  The weather is less than perfect - cooler than it would usually be this time of year.  The forecast for the next 14 days is a lot cooler than I would like but....good for golfing, just not all that great for enjoying the pool.  I'm hoping this is a case of the weatherman being wrong so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

We've been here since Friday afternoon, and both DD and myself have managed to get a tan.  We played a round of golf yesterday afternoon.  The winds were gale force so that made it a bit challenging but we had a good time.  We golfed with a canadian couple from Parksville, BC.  Nice people and both of them were very good golfers.

Today is a lay around and relax day.  The temperature is only supposed to go up to about 68 but I think I will still be able to get some sunbathing time in.  We may head off to the casino for a couple of hours tonight - we'll have to play that by ear.

I hit Michaels on Sunday and picked up a few more supplies.  I was organized enough to bring some watercolours, pens and glue with me, as well as a small journal but forgot to bring some of the other things that might be useful.  I managed to drop $50 but picked up some good stuff so the trip was worthwhile.  I thought I packed a paintbrush but when I got here found that I did not - duh!  So for the time being I'm using a cheap blush brush and a wine cork to spread my paint.  Whatever works!

Must run - will check in again soon.  Caio!
