Desert Dreaming

sunset blvd palm trees

Hello everyone, how was your Tuesday?

I just got back after spending the day at the hospital with my dad. He had another surgery today. We hope to know tomorrow when we can bring him home. Generally, he's doing better -- but the hospital is so dreary! I found myself daydreaming about the desert. I love to go to Two Bunch Palms to soak in the hot springs. Just thinking about it makes me relax.

One of my best friends is in town from Paris and I'm thinking about dragging her out to the desert for a spa getaway, if everything goes ok with my dad.

(PS: I took this photo on Sunset Boulevard the other day. It reminded me of Two Bunch -- big bushy palm trees mixed with tall ones under the desert sky. ah...)

Ah, I share that sense of the desert with you. It's my "happy place" when things are difficult, or worrisome or even just a little too static.
I am, as I have been, wishing all the best for you and your father. My mum went through a surgery recently (she is completely recovered and back to her usual, fiercely energetic self) so I know a little of how you're feeling. Hugs.

Palm trees make me feel very serene too. Beautiful photo! I hope your Dad comes through the second surgery with flying colors and gets to go home soon.

Fingers crossed for your daddy-o. Spa relaxation would be fantastic, especially after, what sounds like, a hectic couple of weeks. Tuesday/Wednesday cheers to you, Tina!

Oh, Tina, a spa gateway sounds so good to me too, right now. Can I come, too:). I do hope your dad will be 100 % better soon. And you can bring him home. Much love, my love! xoxox

Sending well wishes in the wind. Hope your father gets to go home soon. Though I'm sure that your visits, make him feel loved and almost home.

Hope you get to go to the desert spa. Sounds absolutely delicious!

I hope that your dad gets better soonest and that you get to go to your Two Bunch Palms and get some relaxation.

Being scared to lose someone is major stress. You take care.

It's great that you are able to place your mind in serene places and fond memories while going through the tedious functions of reality...hope you make it to the spa soon! (of course, that would mean all went well with your father)... :)
