A SHORT TRIP

I've been gone for the past few days.  For over 30 years my friend Sue and I have kicked off our Christmas season together by shopping and playing.  We started doing this in San Francisco when I lived in the Bay Area.  Now, we live a good 400 miles apart and meet in the middle.  And, what a nice relaxing fun time we had.  As I was leaving our serene setting, I couldn't help snapping a photo with my phone to say goodbye till next year.
That golden hill is the changing fall color of the wine-grape vines.  I saw this for miles and miles.  It was gorgeous, and the small two-lane  highways didn't distract from the view. But, in a few hours . . . . 
It was dark by the time I made it home and very windy.  Back to eight-lane roads.  Back to reality.  Back to fun life that I enjoy in a different way.

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

What a fun little trip. Friends are the best. But home is where the heart is. And no amount of traffic can change that.

Glad you had such a nice time with your friend. My MIL gets together with her high school buddies in Dec too. (Or what is left) They are all in their 80's!
