I'm back from California! Actually, I've been home for a few days. What I thought was allergies while in CA has actually become a cold and a nasty cough. I've been under the weather ever since I got home. DH has been taking good care of me, and now he's sick too.
I had a wonderful trip to California. It was so great to see all my friends that I haven't seen in a year. (But, now I miss them again.) We had so much fun at the retreat! We all got lots of sewing done - it was so much fun to see everyone's projects. Check out Pam's blog for photos and more info. And here's one of Berta's projects. Jill was a wonderful hostess and chauffeur. We shopped, we ate, and we sewed and sewed! Oh, and we talked and talked! It was a blast! Hopefully I can get some photos of my projects in the next few days. California was close to the end of spring. The tulips were almost done, the trees were all blooming, the poppies were covering the hillsides, and it was nice and warm.
In the meantime and in contrast to Spring in California, I will show you some photos that DH took while I was gone. I missed the biggest snowstorm of the year! DH said the snow was coming down so fast and the flakes were so big, that it looked like a snow globe. Click on the photos for a bigger photo, to see all the snowy goodness. We're starting in the backyard, then moving to the front of the house. Then, after the storm the next morning, with 8 to 9 inches of snow!
