June 21--At the solstice

It's been at least a few days since I posted anything. I've been busy trying to get all the stuff I need to get done before we go to Thailand in TWO WEEKS! I've also been doing fun stuff too, so it's not all work.

We went up to my step-sister's in Auburn for father's day. It was somewhat overcast and unusually cool, so we didn't swim. My dad didn't come. He is having some circulation problems in his leg, and wanted to stay home down in the bay area. So it was a small gathering of us and my step-siblings, and their dad, who missed my dad, because they like to watch baseball together.


There are some horses on the property that belong to their maintenance guy. One of the horses just had a baby about 10 days ago. We walked down the hill to feed them apples and take some pictures. It was pretty cool. We had a nice afternoon. I really only see my step-siblings (on that side) about twice a year--on father's day and on my dad's birthday, and I am always happy to see them.

I've been in to work every day trying to get this summer course ready. I am in the middle of writing the exams for the first two months. It's tedious, and I want it to be over. This morning I will be facilitating some sort of education program for high school teachers who teach health-related topics in their schools, so I'm looking forward to that. I will be using our new patient simulators for the first time, so got here early to practice on them.

Last night I photographed a band in their little recording studio as they recorded some songs for their album. The producer and bass player is my friend from the farmers market, who invited me to the session. He has a studio in his detached garage. It's a small space but pretty cool.


A cellphone shot. I got some really good shots with my camera, and will edit them over the weekend. They want to use them for something, but I'm not sure what. In any case, it was fun.


My friend's cat Tiger. The friendliest cat in the world.
