Sunday Driving

We've been enjoying some much needed rain the past few days and it's expected to continue through most of the week! Hooray! However, it politely stopped at each of the many times this weekend that we had to load or unload the harp. Whew! That was nice! Our daughter had two performances this weekend and orchestra rehearsal on Saturday.

After catching up on some sleep Sunday morning, we decided to take a drive to the local mountains to enjoy the snow, hot cocoa, and the beautiful scenery. We drove home through Garner Valley and we were so glad we did because we saw this...


Isn't it beautiful?! We couldn't believe our eyes at how red the ground was with these plants. Here's what they look like close up, dripping with fresh rain...


This adorable little cabin was parked on a corner with a "for sale" sign. Notice the carved eagle on the railing and the bear cub peeking out from the dormer...


We use to go out exploring a lot but we haven't been doing it as much the past few years as life has become so busy and gas was so expensive for a while. So, days like this are a real treat! We're trying to get out there more often. I wonder what we'll find next? :-)

I would really love to have that weaving studio cabin on wheels. Imagine, being able to hitch up and weave at the beach, then up to the mountains...? Wow, it would be heaven. :)

That cabin is so adorable. Did you see how much it was? I bet my HOA wouldn't like it's addition to my yard for some reason. Bummer.

I love your pictures. You should think about publishing your pictures. You definately have an eye for beauty.
