I'm here for Tea with Elizabeth and the T-gang a littler later than usual, since it is already Tuesday and I usually get my post ready on Monday night.
DH and I spent the weekend about 110 miles west of here at an RV resort (fancy name for a RV park....grin) in Paso Robles.......not quite to the beach, but a place we have never stayed before. We have been to Paso Robles for the Mid-State Fair and for wine tasting and a few other misc. things, but we have never actually stayed here. We stayed at The Vines RV Resort, fairly new place, very nice and clean and very picturesque. I took over 170 pictures with my camera and probably as many with my phone.......no, I didn't post them ALL.......LOL
I was lucky enough to meet the artist that did the sand blasting on the window pictured above. The first night they had wine tasting and a couple of venders, and she was one of them. Very nice person to talk to...............and boy did we chat!!!!
I have SO MANY pictures of this mission that it would literately take me all day to go through them to post. So, not bore anybody tooooooo much I'll post them as time goes on. We took the tour and there was so many interesting things and the sanctuary has the original frescos on the walls. Yes, I took pictures....................so stay tuned..............I haven't even shown you all the outside yet!!!
This is the last week of public school here is CA. It seems the school year gets shorter and shorter.
Hannah, my GD doesn't want to do the summer program, she has been in the past two years. She said she would rather be with family and or friends. Can't say as I blame her, it is so similar to the after school program she is in everyday. Since Mom only works 4 days a week she asked me if I'd sign on to watch Hannah a couple days a week........for the whole summer.............do you think I would say no?????? Hannah chose to be here Mondays and Tuesdays.......now I have to keep her from getting bored, and from sitting in front of the TV. She has a cousin, Rachel, who is one week younger and really has no place fun to go while her parents work. Yep! I am going to have them both for two days a week for the whole summer. Both of their Dads work at the air port, 5 miles east of here, so they will drop the girls off in the morning and pick them up on the way home.
I really want to start teaching them some of the things that are falling away from being taught to the younger generations.......like how to sew a button on, how to use a sewing machine to make something (I already have a very simple dress pattern for them), how to set a formal place setting, how to cook.......and I don't mean bake cookies. Since their Dads are so close they are going to make them lunch at least once a month, which they can come here or we will take it to them. Of course there will be a LOT of art going on, I want them to do the SOC challenges and also write in journals, learn mixed media things, paint and how to use my camera (maybe they will be better with it than me...LOL) ....................DO YOU THINK I'LL MAKE IT THROUGHT THE SUMMER??
Time to link up and see what the rest of the T-gang is drinking and what has been going on in their lives.......grab a cuppa and join me...................
