Girl Crush

I love Flora Bowley's art.  I really, really, really, want to take a class with her.  She just taught in Berkley ath the TeaHouse Studio but somehow I missed that.  Hopefully she'll teach there again.  My fingers are crossed.

“You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds."
   Henry David Thoreau

I love studying the sky.  Especially the clouds.  They speak to me...and sometimes I speak back.

Rain, Wind and Trees

We had a spring storm roll through this weekend.  We got up Sunday morning to find that it had taken out one of our trees.  We have quite a few trees in our backyard which gives us a nice barrier between us and the neighbors--but this was my favorite tree.  Beautiful color.  I don't know if it will come back.  You never know.

So I took a  STEP today toward one of my goals for this year.  I don't want to say what it is yet.  I don't want to jinx it.  But my fingers are crossed!!

Weekend Fun

We took the trailer out for the first time this year.  We went up to Hogan's Reservoir near Angel's Camp.  Our spot was right on the lake in a spot where the boats and jet skis had to go slow and quiet.  Not too far from us they were able to pick up speed--so we didn't have all the noise but could watch them speed across the water.

We had a beautiful view and wonderful weather for Saturday.  I was enjoying the sun so much that I stayed out too long and came home with a sunburn. 

And look at the ducks floating by.  So many babies!!
