My company is a sponsor of the Santa Barbara Unity Shoppe's Holiday Drive. Today we recorded their annual holiday song which airs during the Unity Shoppe telethon. We sand the song, "It's Christmas Once Again in Santa Barbara" written for this occasion by Grammy award winning songwriter Barry DeVorzon.

Unfortunately the last set of books I checked out from the library are due tomorrow. I was in the middle of reading one of the books, but I wasn't able to renew online because someone else was waiting to check it out. The good news... I was able to check out new books.

Our trusty Mustang broke on the way home this evening. Fortunately we were less than 1 mile away from our house when it died. Another great thing is that we have AAA. They sent a tow truck quickly and we were able to get on with our evening. We are taking it to the doctor tomorrow to see if they can make it feel better.

I recently uncovered my Canon EOS Rebel-G camera. It's been years since I've used it, but I love looking at printed pictures so I am going to put it into my camera rotation. I'm sure I'll still take mostly digital pictures but I am excited about using a manual camera again.

We went to the horse races at Del Mar today. I have never been to the racetrack so this was a brand new experience for me. Although I never got the hang of betting this was a fun way to spend the afternoon.

Today was very hot and humid in southern California. After breakfast Carol and Adam took us on a walking tour of their neighborhood and community. Even though it was only 9:00 in the morning it was already so hot that by the time we got back to their house we were pretty much done for the day. We ended up spending the rest of the day relaxing at their house. We did venture out for sushi for dinner.

Ted and I were so excited about taking the train to visit Carol and Adam for the long Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, not 10 minutes into the trip, someone decided to commit suicide by running in front of the train. Our train was delayed two hours as the Santa Barbara police conducted their investigation. That was not the best way to start off our trip, but after we were able to continue on the trip was enjoyable and the scenery beautiful.

My very thoughtful husband bought me the movie Earth today at Costco. I've wanted to see this movie since it came out in the theaters last April and now I'll get to see it on Blu-ray, which brings me to Ted's second purchase today... a PS3. Ted has wanted PS3 for many months and he finally bought one today. He will get to play games and we can both watch movies on Blu-ray. Fun for both of us.
