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.
