A DAY in the BAY . . .
It is truly amazing that for the last several weeks the weather has been cool, cold, rainy and some sporadic sunshine.  But today is like the best summer day ever, mid-seventies and sun, lots of it. How did the NFL do it? It's almost like they touched base ...

NAPA and Back . . .
The weekend started in a way different mode for us . . . while we are often up early we haven't been leaving the house early except for yesterday. We left the house shortly after 7:15 am, unheard of lately. It is hard to believe that we could be dressed and...

On Again, Off Again -- The Weather
It has been an interesting weather week and it looks as though that pattern will continue into the coming days. It is hard to predict when we leave the house whether we will be hit with a deluge or bask in sunlight -- we actually are enjoying either. The ne...

Christmas -- Presence, Now Passed . . .
It hardly seems possible that Christmas was two days ago already. We're are still in the Holiday mode. Partly it is because of the day of the week too. We were treated to at least three days so far of the "Christmas Moon" . . . and we had somewhat of a "whi...

Countdown Continues -- Decorating Almost Done
With the burning of the "Christmas Candle" and the decorations throughout, it is readily apparent that it is truly Christmastime. Oh, and not to mention the sounds of various Christmas albums playing on the Echo add to the holiday spirit . . . The front doo...

It's The Christmas Countdown (and Cyber Monday)
If we had any pumpkins left from Halloween, there'd be frost on them! It was in the 20s again last night. The heating system seems to have a mind of its own and goes a little berserk by getting warmer and warmer as the temperature outside gets colder and co...

Sutter & Back, Napa Two
With an incredible timing, we made our second trip to Napa yesterday to have Dino evaluated for the hospital therapy training for him and for us. This time, there was no intermittent rain squalls with only sunshine to guide us all the way there and back. We...

Playoffs, Playoffs, Debatable
This has been another on again off again week in terms of weather. At the moment, it is raining but the sun is trying to break through. Yesterday was similar, but the sun was successful.  Earlier the rains came -- a lot. The nice thing though is that while ...

Come and Gone . . . Fast
That was fast, we just ate the last of the pumpkins, the last of the turkey, the pea soup made from the Christmas ham bone and now it is a whole new year! And it is cold and rainy as well. The last few nights have been in the 20s, so lots of frost in the mo...

Christmas, It's a Wrap . . .
As I write this there is less than a week until the big day. A great deal of this week has been spent wrapping the many items as they arrive via UPS, Fedex and USPS. The postal service has actually surprised me this week. One of the packages that we mailed ...

Berry Nice !!
We had rain and maybe more to come later today! The rain helped to finish off the remaining leaves that fleshed out the cottonwood tree (pictured two posts ago) and now there are "just the berries" and a few good leaves remaining. They look good enough to e...
