Today's sky was back looking like this

after yesterday's looked like this.

I found a new detour to my (almost) daily walk. It adds another half mile or more. I followed a sign that said Vista Point Trail and walked to the top of the hill at the far edge of our neighborhood. My house is off in the distance on the far left side of the photo. In fact, I'm not sure my place is actually in the picture.

As I was trekking up the side of the hill, I wondered if this trail is anything like the uphill walk my friend describes taking every summer day in Oxford--to the top of Shotover Hill. I walked several switch-backs until I came out on the top of the hill and I could look all over the valley.

Usually our weather, even in the fall and winter, is sunny, like it was on Saturday when we took Kiti and Mike over to Cal State University, Channel Islands to show them where The Professor is teaching. Ojai Hall is the building his classroom is in.

I went clothes shopping this afternoon. As you know, if you read my post about eight true things about me, I hate shopping, but I really need to add a few school outfits to my wardrobe that are washable and will stand up to glue, paste, and fingerpaint and still look somewhat professional. So, after such a day, I am going to knitting group.

Tomorrow--knitting pictures!

What beautiful photos. I would have loved to have been on that walk with you. The scenery is gorgeous.

Like you, I hate shopping, but there are times when we have to bite the bullet and pick up a few things. I dread it. I can never find clothes that fit me properly. They're either too big or too small. Maybe I'm just shaped weird. LOL

Take care and thanks for sharing. I enjoyed my visit very much.

Thanks for visiting...2 yrs of blogging?? I am only on my first week. It sure does take a bit of time to visit and read and learn a bit. Its fun so far. I am so impressed with your knitting and that you learned so young. I wish I had let my grandma teach me. She would be proud I am carrying it on. I will look forward to seeing your pictures tomorrow.

What a lovely daily walk you must have. Enjoyed seeing something of your area.

Apple pie looks great. I love baking but do not enjoy doing pastry.

Will have to come back and check your pics. Some did not come up.

The model vilage does not change. It is the same as it was when first built!

I love blue California fall skies! Also cloudy skies and rainy ones :-D That foggy hillside shot is very moody.
