The weekend had a lot of driving and a lot of visiting.
After I flew up on Wednesday we visited with my aunt and cousins for a couple of hours then checked into a best western for the night. In the morning we met Lori’s life long friend and her son for breakfast and then headed toward Nappa. We walked around Nappa (not big drinkers) we wandered through the shops and sat and sketched a while.
We then headed back toward Vallejo. We checked into the travel lodge for the night and then went and met my friend Mike from 20 years ago. We spent a couple of hours touring his lovely garden and house before walking to dinner. It was so fun to catch up with him and there seemed to be no time that had passed since the last time I saw him.
The next morning we drove to Rocklin and see Lori’s friend Alice from grad school and see the baby and their new house. We stopped in Sacramento on our way for breakfast and went to my favorite spot there the Fox and Goose. Staying on Whole30 the whole trip while eating all meals out wasn’t too challenging but breakfast at the Fox and Goose was a breeze and so good.
We got to Rocklin early and went to a movie!!! In the middle of the day!!! It has been so long since we went to a movie, it was a ton of fun. We saw Oceans 8 and enjoyed the downtime along with the cool theatre since it was 110 outside.
We stayed at their place, we would both rather stay in a hotel but they were expecting us to stay and the guest room was all set up. The baby slept through the night and didn’t wake us and luckily we didn’t wake her either.
Our plan was to head to Tahoe that morning, but we were getting a much later start and decided to just head home. A few stops along the way as it is a very long drive. When we got back my brother was still there and two of the cats were no shows for the time we were gone.
The cat who usually comes in and sleeps in the house showed back up but is very apprehensive about coming in. She wanted in about 2:00 a.m. this morning and slept for a couple of hours before wanting back out about 5:00 a.m. The pregnant cat came around for dinner last night and is skinny again, so somewhere in our neighborhood there are kittens.
