Kara Franklyn was born in Southern California but grew up in Walnut Creek where I went to school there, fought and played with my brothers and sister there, had my first heart broken there and made lifelong friends that no matter where I live will always be there for me! I have lived in several cities in California. From Monterey to Tahoe, DisneyLand to the San Francisco Zoo, it just doesn't get much better! I am married to my best friend, Pete makes me laugh, think and care about what is happening in our world! I am blessed to have family and friends who care about me and laugh at my really dumb jokes!!
Last night, Pete brought home a pizza and we watched "The Heat" with Sandra Bullock! I know, not some outrageous evening, but usually on Sunday nights, it's football or just kind of getting ready for the morning. It was so unplanned and kick back!! I loved spending time with him, I love pizza (unfortunatley!) and I thought the movie was really funny!! It was the perfect unplanned evening!!! And I was in bed by 9pm!!! (My alarm goes off at 3am!) It couldn't have been better if I had planned it.
I can be an avid reader and then other days not as much, but tomorrow I will be in my book daze!! From books on fiction, to non fiction, mysteries, the wild, and of course, my favorite cookbooks! The books AND some of the authors!! I can't wait to see the Mangelos. A local brother and sister that wrote a cookbook, John had a resteraunt in Ripon for a long time and I have never ever tasted onion rings as good as theirs!! I've looked!! TRUST ME! So, hopefully I can get "their family secret recipe!!" Tomorrow in Manteca at the Promanade shopping center, join myself, Sunny 102.3 and so many others for an amazing day of fun and books, yes, lots and lots of books!!
Tomorrow from 8am to 1pm, it's the 11th annual Healthy Aging and Fall Prevention Summit! From blood pressure checks to diabetes tests, vision andso much more, it will be all under one roof tomorrow!! And the best part....it's FREE! I remember going last year and just being amazed at everything they had to offer. Kaiser will be there, along with 70 other vendors, all there to show you how to have a happy, healthy active life! It's for 50 and older and caregivers, but everyone is welcome!! Even if you only have a few minutes to go, I truly hope you can make it, who, knows, it could change your health?!!!!
