My last "official" vacation was in June. I counted (on my fingers, thank you) and that was five months ago. I am so ready for a few days off. And what am I looking forward to? Why, that would be sleep! LOL Hubby wants to at least take one overnight trip. Baby Sis said she would take care of Dad, so we are off tomorrow morning. We have two choices....Alameda to shop at Needle in a Haystack, or to Angel's Camp (in the Sierras) to visit one of hubby's relatives. Take a wild guess which way I am leaning...LOL LOL LOL Of course, if we head to Angel's Camp, I do know of a few quilt shops on the way!
It's been a long week. Work, work, and more work. Hubby has been home for the past week, but it seems that he has forgotten how to run a vacuum cleaner. LOL He has done laundry, so I suppose that I shouldn't whine.
Last night, we did a quick trip out to do the Cow Patrol. This is my sweet baby...if you look closely, you can see our brand, V/J. Notice all the brown in the background? Welcome to drought stricken California. This is why we are feeding hay four days a week.
And here my baby's momma! LOL My heifer is definitely a throw-back to her great, great grandcow.
When we first got to the lease, we only had three cows and three calves come to the feeder. That means that you head on over the hills to find the missing cows.
Sat for a few minutes watching the cows and then looked over my shoulder to find this sunset...beautiful...
Over at the rancho, the half inch of rain we got last week really perked up my roses. On the left is Brandy, on the right is Sunset.
Here is the lavender that I planted in a pot earlier in the summer. It has really taken off. Isn't that light green delicate looking?
And because I'm sure that everyone is wondering how my giant granny square is coming along...
I'm off and running for the evening. A few things to pack and final instructions to Baby Sis. She's sure that she can do this. We've got back-up coming later Saturday, so she should be okay. I will take lots of pictures to share...never know what I will find. LOL
Have a great weekend and be kind to one another.
