When life is so busy with a road trip and days off that one is not near a computer for days so there is no blogging, the hardest part is figuring out where to start. So a wrap-up it is.
I took three days off last week. We don’t get any time off once February starts for several months. That coupled with Lori being on break between semesters it was the perfect time for a road trip.
My brother was a dear and stayed with the cat and in the house so it didn’t look empty. With one car in the shop and another on a road trip, five days empty is not a good look for our neighborhood. (Besides whos gonna feed all those ferals)
We left Wednesday, drove up through Santa Barbara to Monterey. Went to the museum, stayed in a lovely hotel on the water with a fire place that we built a fire and spent some great down time.
Friday morning we drove over to Manteca to stay with friends. We went to lunch, spent hours visiting and catching up. Saturday we went to Sacramento and spent HOURS walking around the Crocker art museum. I was so impressed with that place. I want to go back this weekend if it weren’t a 7 hour drive.
Sunday morning we went out to breakfast and then home. Sunday’s are always iffy in LA traffic but we got home in under 5.5 hours without much delay at all.
Now the week is well underway. We went grocery shopping yesterday, today was trying to get the rest of the to do list processed, laundry, bedding, yard waste. Tomorrow food prep, yoga and wash my filthy car from the road trip.
Some of my favorites from the museum…. They never look as good as in person. I was so surprised by the Georgia O’Keeffe “It was a man and a pot”
