G and I are on a three day mini vacation in CA. Left son and family and drove along the coast on Highway 1. We are staying nights at a home through "Motorcycle Network", where you list your home for others in the network. The couple is near our age, avid motorcyclists and very inviting. We are staying in Soquel, which is near Santa Cruz. I posted the pictures mainy for me to remember. It looks like they have filled in their pool since they are on water rationing here. An interesting fact is that it has been almost 20 degrees cooler in CA than at home. Go Figure!

My sister in law, whose meals are to die for, got a new kitchen stove. It is perfect for her type of cooking as you can see in this picture. I am sorry I did not get a picture of the meal she served. Linguini with shrimp was the entree and rhubarb crisp for dessert.
We had a short visit with her and my brother on our way to the Mpls/St.Paul airport, from which we flew to San Francisco. (Since I am not an expert at posting from my tablet you may need to click on the picture to see sis-in-law)

When warmer weather comes, our upstairs windows are full of ladybugs. I caught them and took them outside. This last picture shows one on the flower with a honey bee.

I am sitting in an auto glass shop as I wait for them to install a new windshield. It seems that a rock hit it on our way back from Florida. The crack had traveled about 24 inches already. I am using the time to clear out old emails. WiFi is great!
On a more somber note, one of my sisters, Marge, is quite ill. She had a ruptured appendix and did not know it for a couple days. She had surgery but still is hospitalized. I have not made a decision as to whether to go to Minnesota. Relatives are great about keeping me informed. The other family news is that my Mom is now in a nursing home and will not be returing to independent living. She is unable to walk on her own. She is in a neighboring town to Mt. Lake as there are no openings in the nursing home in Mt. Lake. She is on the waiting list for the local one.
