A Journey... Part 1

 I have not been very good about blogging these past few weeks ok almost like a month... I did 2 extra shows this month and I was busy with my other job.. Real Estate.. Time seems to fly when you about to turn 50, "it" happens this Wednesday...Its funny I have never cared about turning a certain number till now.. Not haha funny either..

Sooo I went on a little "Vision Quest" Though my daughter explained to me that the Native Americans vision quest sent them into the woods with no supplies and pretty much hopped up on peyote, she also point out I do not like creepy crawlers, sleeping on hard surfaces or am I very fond of cold weather. All very true!!!  I guess it was more like checking off something I have wanted to do for 10 years..  I went up north first to Los Banos a small town we lived in when my father was working on the dam there. I have many fond memories there.. Such a different time in the world.. I picked up my girlfriend and off to Sutter Creek and to as my picture says Daffodil Hill. It is an old ranch from the early 1800's the owner was from Holland and he planted thousands of daffodils, the family continues to open it up to the public, it is a short season usually 3 weeks.They also plant 5000 new bulbs every year. A few days before I went there was a late season snow/hail storm and the daffodils were still a bit shall we say dazed... It was still amazing and I am thrilled that I got this wonderful opportunity. My dear sweet friend Donna indulged me every time I wanted to stop take pictures or rummage through (some would call them) junk stores though I prefer to call them treasure stores:)... I shopped along the way and I found some very lovely treasures for my next show which is coming up on April 30th.. In Huntington Beach, the show is called Behind The Pickett Fence!!
This is my first time doing this show so it should be interesting, I am excited!!!

Thanks for stopping by:)

ps.. Absolutely no idea how I changed half of the font??? Part 2 coming soon!!!
