Just wanted to commemorate this unusual day, when I got roses!

Another old family album emerges

This week, I came home one evening to find a big box on the front step, left by the postman. It contained two old photo albums that were my mother's that had been in storage at my cousin's house for several years. I don't think I ever saw these albums, so it was a delight to look through them. The most fun pics were the ones of my mother knitting--and a sketch my father did of her knitting, as well. She's the one who taught me to knit and she was always very supportive of all the art and craft projects I did over the years, buying materials for me and admiring the results.

"Truffula trees" in Monterey

Every time we drive to Monterey, I want to take a photo of this row of oddly shaped trees, they remind me of "truffula trees" from the Dr Seuss book, the Lorax. So this time, I finally got a couple of shots.

Carmel visit

We took DS out for his 21st birthday at the Grill in Carmel, the food was excellent and they brought out desert on a fancy plate with a candle! We browsed a few shops and I stopped into Knitting by the Sea, a lovely yarn shop.

Can't believe it's winter!

The weather has been unbelievably warm this winter--I took all these photos on a walk through my neighborhood last weekend.
