Retrieving Daisy from the vet

Sunday, August 2, 2020

After 6 long anxious hours of waiting and getting calls, I finally got Daisy back. It’s never fun going to the vet. I don’t think I can get another dog after I lose Daisy. No one ever tells you how much heartbreak it would be when they are sick or pass away.

I needed to make use of my cricut machine so I decided to make AmandaDRIFTS decals. Let me know if anyone wants custom vinyl printed.. I only have sparkly white and pink vinyl right now.

Alkaline water

I am slowly switching over to drinking alkaline water. I forgot about all the great benefits of alkaline water. EXCITED!

Fun times with Daisy

Sunday, August 2, 2020

These photos were a couple of days before she got her diagnosis of arthritis, dehydration, cancer and a few other issues the vet uncovered. Cherishing the little moments we have left and trying to find ways to cope with it all. My adorable little baby.

Missing my boy, Cookie

Sunday, August 2, 2020

Our last picture together FOREVER. They say it takes time to heal. I am slowly accepting his passing but still miss him so much. I try not to scroll through photos of him, it’s so hard not too.

Homegrown Watermelon

Sunday, August 2, 2020

Apparently, SUMMER is the perfect time to grow watermelons. I was lucky enough to have my amazing neighbor Marco pick out the watermelon plants and plant them for me. Ironically, my Mom did a great job watering and tending to this precious watermelon and all the other plants. Ta da, see our beautiful watermelon below.

Birthday Gucci Sandals

Saturday, July 25, 2020

I was very SURPRISED with my birthday gift, a pair of Gucci sandals. Thank you so much bestie, Flor. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! Maybe, it’s because I turned a certain age, you feel bad because I am an old lonely lady now.

These are AMAZING photos of my S13 at The Petersen Museum. I could remember how there was so much overcast and a very chill group of folks. Thanks for the photos, MJ Photography, appreciate it!

White McLaren

Saturday, July 25, 2020

Wow, a rare sighting to see a white McLaren. Don’t mind us acting us tourists. I had to fill Katherine in on how much the McLaren costs, ~$200K. The car drives so smooth and there is no whiplash like the DB9.

Back in the early 2000s

Saturday, July 25, 2020

A long, long time ago I was on a magazine cover in my prime drifting days. I think this was back in the early 2000s, I have to look for the hard copy to confirm. Look how young I was.

Rough month

Saturday, July 25, 2020

Everyone says there are steps in the mourning process and things will get better with time, which I believe is true. It’s just so hard dealing with it so fresh in my mind. Why did God make it so dogs only live up to 17 years max and us humans can potentially live a very […]

That view

Saturday, July 25, 2020

Appreciating the little things in life like this view!!! Daisy was not amused with us walking without Cookie or with his ashes. It was quite peaceful until she pulled a muscle or something, was limping for hours. I was so scared, I was about to lose another dog or have a disabled dog. Ekk!

Mini Gardening Update 7.25.20

Saturday, July 25, 2020

My Mom’s marijuana plants are growing nicely. I forgot what seeds I planted in the other photo but it’s growing. I’ll need to research what it is. Do you know? Message me if you do.

Craved Peruvian Japanese Food

Saturday, July 25, 2020

I was craving Kotosh, a local Peruvian Japanese restaurant in Lomita. Pictured below is the seafood ceviche and some sushi. I wish I didn’t like seafood, I’d save so much money being basic. Ha Ha.

Oldie but goodie

Saturday, July 25, 2020

I cried when I found this oldie but goodie photo of Cookie and the hatch. He was so young, healthy and happy acting as my car alarms/security guard. I think this photo is from 2-5 years ago when we first moved to Torrance. Miss you, Cookie boo!
