We had a wonderful time visiting the Napa valley on a 7 hour wine tour! We loved the beautiful vineyards and the wine tastings at 4 boutiques wineries. The weather was perfect and the company great!

Flea Marketing in Sacramento

My sister and I had fun at the local Sacramento Antique Faire held under a viaduct in downtown Sac. We found some treasures and had fun haggling.

Laid Up

Well, the last week or so has been most challenging. I have been struggling with hip/back/knee pain off and on for months. I've tried lots of remedies, but finally called my doctor. He prescribed physical therapy and while I've only gone to a few sessions, my knee has been really acting up the most. I have had constant pain for a full week and got into a orthopedic doctor today. I figured I would get a brace or shot or something and that would be that. Not so much this time. My doctor said the only thing that will really fix my problem is knee replacement!! OMG!! I was not expecting that diagnosis. So, here I sit, icing my knee and trying to figure out where I will get a second opinion!

Baby Shower for our Grandson!

We had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for our son, daughter in law and soon to be born grandson last weekend. I made lots of snacks and provided wine, beer & soda for our guests.
My sister contributed handmade baby powder scented soaps as party favors. They smell so yummy!
Our new front door arrived just in time! 
The baby shower was an Open House concept, no games! We invited couples, family and friends that have shared our life with Andrew in various stages of his development. 
Mom & Dad to be got lots of great gifts! Kellie (our dog) thought it was Christmas!

Our new puppy Coco was an angel during the entire event. Afterwards we relaxed out on the patio. Coco got some much needed free time!
Best of luck to Andrew & Ursula, only 6 more weeks!!!

Was is that outside??

Oh my goodness, what is GOING ON outside??? I think I faintly remember what this stuff is... its RAIN!! Its been raining most of the day today. Do you know how long its been since this happened??? Try 100 days!!! Wow, we are loving the dreary clouds and trickle of precipitation down our windows. I was talking to a clerk at a store today about how we wanted to stand out in the rain and just relish the feeling. I know out trees are loving this!!
Here is the latest cute puppy picture. Little Miss Coco has become a welcome addition to our "pack". She has so much character and spunk. She has me totally in love!!!
