The Month of March

March is my birthday month.
This year I am proudly 55.
It has been a great month and I'm looking forward to another great year ahead.
To celebrate Jim and I started with a long weekend at my favorite place in Calistoga, The Luxe.
Brent and Chris are wonderful hosts.
Breakfast created by Josh are phenomenal and delicious.

Happy hour is not to be missed.
And to top it off for my birthday a carrot cake and coconut cupcake.
I am in hog heaven.
I  traveled to Santa Cruz and back for work and then headed to South Lake Tahoe for quilt camp.
Five days of sewing bliss.
And yes I did also visit a shop or two for work.
The view from my room.

The view from my walk about.
Life is good!!

On The Road

For my job I now am on the road quite a bit. 
I'm always amazed the changes of scenery.
Yesterday I left sunny Sacramento.
Drove up and over the Sierra Nevada Mountains

And arrived in Minden, Nevada.
All in the span of 2 1/2 hours.
After my appointment I made it back home last night before the thunderstorms hit.
This is only the second time in 5 years I've experienced a real display of thunder and lighting in California.
It is a grand place I inhabit.
