Wow, how things change when one has not posted since February. This is so odd to me to see a new format and will try to figure it out as I write this post.
I may have lost someone I followed for two years to Ovarian Cancer but not sure so reaching out via this post. She is not on Facebook any longer, her Blog is gone (says last post was 4 days ago) and her e-mail address is inactive. Shocked to say the least. My only connections to her are no longer connections. I have read through all e-mails that we sent back and forth for the past two years and reached out to a Blogger that we both were followed by. If by chance all is well, Ashley, I would love to hear from you. My thoughts are with you as always.
To think that 2 years ago Oscar did not know what grass was and was hysterical to watch tip-toe on it, to a Spring like Winter day today where he plopped for the first time on the lawn to soak in some sun
We both enjoyed the warmth of the sun so much
He made funny faces as usual, eating his crunchy treats
Then he saw and heard the little birds playing in the trees behind our house, so it was time to go back inside for today. Since the weather will be like this for at least a week, we will be enjoying it while it is here. After all, Winter weather has to arrive eventually!
Erik and I arrived at the Mall at Noon We shopped, sat and ate and shopped more There are over 200 stores/shops
We met a man who was selling CD's that he and his partner recorded Al Fabrizio plays the best sounding Italian Mandalin and his partner plays guitar I came home with one CD to enjoy and a photo of me with Al
We left the Mall at 7pm What a long and fun day with my son
Thanksgiving Day - November 24, 2011 Table set for our dinner turkeys stuffed and on the BBQ's
Pumpkin Cheesecake for dessert What a wonderful dinner and a busy day, so busy I forgot to take photos of our dinner or the turkeys one on gas and one on charcoals delish!! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving
Bored?? Me?? Yes, and usually at night. I am supposed to be asleep, but cannot get tired enough, so I decided to make a Christmas lamp shade with some of my old (stored for a long time) Christmas wrapping paper. I made it a bit, well a lot too small and was lucky to have my small thrift store wine glass for it to fit perfectly. Guess I better call it a night.
Happy Halloween to all. I finally fixed today's photo problem. Turned off my computer, let it sit, then turned it on and my photo was there. I made two more Halloween lamps that I added to one I had made already and added some of our decorations. Getting in the spirit of the day. Thank you to Carol for getting me into making these fun, cute and festive lamps.
We went to the Harvest Festival in Old Town Folsom It warmed up in the afternoon to the 70's to make it a wonderful day to walk the street filled with lots of vendors including a few we had see at a previous Festival
There was entertainment that drew many with a great singer that you just had to move to and a musician playing music
Dancers and what a view beyond
Old shops that we will go back to but went into one that brought back memories of our lives years ago What a fun place to go to and what a wonderful day we had Brought lunches, so went back to the car got our lunches and sat at a bench where the light rail picks up and drops of people
Look what was sitting on our fence when my son and I got home from shopping tonight. Thinking it is a white dove, though we have only had gray doves where we live, so not sure where it came from, but it was not too afraid of us till my husband got really close to it and it flew on the neighbors lattice overhang. Will have to see if it is around tomorrow. Lucky for this bird that all the cats in the immediate area are indoor cats wanting to get out and get it. This bird is not around this morning, but found out from a friend what it is: A White Homing Pigeon "They are specially bred this way; so it probably escaped from a breeder. These white pigeons are often released as "white doves" at weddings. They call them white doves, but they're actually pigeons."
