My day in pictures

I am having such fun with my new camera, a Panasonic Lumix FZ18. I took it with me yesterday while I was out running errands and took pictures along the way.

I love this westerly view as I drive out of our neighborhood. You know you're in Northern California and not that far from the ocean, with that coastal fog nestled in the hills.
Then it was off to the library for a bit of browsing...
The library is one of my favorite places.
When I parked in town to head into a shop, I parked behind a flashy black Corvette.
Then it was time to drive out to C's school for pick-up. The road out to her school takes me past beautiful vineyards, and I love this old barn.
These gnarled fruit trees always make me happy too.

The mustard weed is springing up in the field behind C's school. As my grandfather used to say, "There's mustard for your hot dog!"
Here's a shot into my rear view window of the mommy cars lined up for the kid stampede.
Then home for an afternoon snack of cookies and tea.


  1. I love the barn photo! That would be a nice starting point for an art quilt.

  2. Fabulous post. Wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing your day!

  3. What a lovely day! I loved the way you worked your pix and text together. I'm still new to blogging (new to the Artful Quilters) and can't figure out how to get my pictures where I want them.

  4. Diane, sorry to leave a comment here that is nothing to do with your blog, but i can't get to your email as it appears to be bouncing. The Artful Quilter Webring code on my site has been removed due to a code breakdown, so i need a current "dose" of it please :}

  6. Your pictorial journal is brilliant! Makes me miss California and thinking it's time for a trip!

  7. Ahhh! Makes me so nostalgic for that scenery.
