This has definitely been true in my case this month but I hope the motion has ceased for a while, I need a break! We have traveled the entire length of the state of California in October and are home at last with no plans to go another mile for quite a while. For those of you who may not be familiar with our great state let me just tell you that California is BIG. It's the third largest state in the U.S. behind Alaska and Texas. I know this fact because my seven year old grandson told me and he's a demon for facts.
I'm including a map with a very rough sketch of our travels just to prove to you that we can really pack on the miles when we put our minds to it. First we went up the coast to visit our eldest grandson at his university. I was the only one who had not seen where he was living. I just couldn't rest easy until I had seen for myself that he was doing well and oh my what a treat it was to see him in his new environment. He is loving college life and so excited about all the things he's learning and doing. Grandma can now relax.
Chris and I then decided to spend a few days in the beautiful California wine country of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino. We had a glorious time sipping and dining. The sea food at Bodega Bay was glorious. Then it was home for two days to check in with the chickens and pups before heading out for a visit with our kids in Southern California. I haven't seen my younger grand kids since the beginning of summer. Usually they spend at least part of the summer with us here in the mountains but this year work and other family obligations made that impossible and Grammy was missing the baby love.
I don't talk much about the grandchildren on this blog out of respect for their family's privacy. Just know that I have six beautiful, talented, exceptional grands that mean the world to me and I don't mind traveling all over just to lay eyes on them from time to time. Oh, and my own kids who parent them.
We're home now and I hope to get back on track with blogging, cooking, quilting and answering your comments but I think I have to call a time out on answering the comments that have come my way over the last three weeks. I just am overwhelmed. If there's an answer you feel you just have to have email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll reply. I hope you understand.
Until next time,
