Brought us to Sequoia National Park where we saw some majestic mountains and lots of.....
SNOW!!!! We both took tons of photos and can't wait to visit again. The next time we hope the roads will be open all the way to the amazing Redwood trees!
Since Jim LOVES to drive, and I love the quiet time to knit, read and take naps, we went from the snow capped Sierra's to the beauty of the ocean shores.
We nestled into a favorite place for the night, and with a fireplace to keep us cozy, talked about ALL of the trips we hope to take.
If you were wondering if I get to pick any of the spots, I can only say OF COURSE I DO!!!
I spent some wonderful time in "Strawberry Patch" quilt shop in Kern County. Very sweet...and it certainly enticed me to add to my stash!
Yes....pink does seem to be a recurring theme, but NO surprise!!! Or maybe a HUGE surprise if our baby Clare turns out to NOT be a girl.
But I have assured Jonathan and Jill that I can just as easily sew with blue in mind!!! We are counting the days.....such joy!
So what do I think of retirement so far.....loving every minute.
