Should I let my landlord evict me at any time without notice?

My 12-month lease in Los Angeles finished a few months ago and my landlord now wants to put the month-to-month agreement in writing, which is fine with me. She drew up an agreement containing the following: "Owner can evict tenant at any given time without notice." Should I agree to this?

I have a generally good relationship with my landlord (I live in her guesthouse) so I'm not really worried about eviction, but I want to be protected. As I understand it the law entitles me to three days' notice
after which the landlord can start the eviction process. It sounds to me like this language is asking me to give up both the three days' notice and my right to the eviction process. Should I push back on this language and do you have any suggestions as to how to phrase this in a non-confrontational way?
