1. time spent with my family
We met up with The New Boy, his mama and the Grad Student, all of us converging at the same time in one spot on this planet although for different reasons. Spending even a few days with our grandson (and two of our children) gives us great joy!
2. a random meeting with someone who reads my blog
We wandered in to a shop and the clerk commented on my felted bag. One thing led to another and I discovered that wow! she's a knitter, and she reads my blog! What fun randomness!
3. revisiting San Francisco
4. Half Moon Bay
A seven hour drive each way along Hwy 101 allows for extended periods to spend gazing at the wonderful and beautiful California scenery. We drove along the Pacific Coast beaches, through the coastal hills covered with live oak trees and orange poppies. Watching the hills, dotted with horses and cows or covered with vineyards, roll past reminded me what an incredible state I live in--one that extends for almost nine hundred miles north to south, encompasses some of the most majestic scenery in the world, and is home to people living on citrus or cattle ranches, in small sleepy towns nestled in the golden foothills, and huge crowded, bustling cities.
How was your week?
