greetings from sunny california...

Here we are...

enjoying the sunshine...

...and the view from our deck.

Oh...and the company as well.
Three of my sisters have been vacationing at the same resort.

Bev flew home to Texas today...
the other two leave tomorrow.
We have some friends here as well...

...and enjoyed strawberry shortcake on their patio last night.
I have plenty of reading material...
and a fridge that is well-stocked.

It's all good in this corner of the USA...
though we are very much aware of the devastation that is happening on the east coast.
Our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted by Sandy.


  1. Oh how nice to be vacationing with your sisters and friends. Hope that you find time to read the book!

  2. It looks wonderful there! I could use some sunshine here today. Rain and wind, the tail end of Sandy. Enjoy your vacation!

  3. Sunshine - that is just the thing! We've had rain here for two weeks, with a bit of a clear break on Sunday. No more danger of forest fire, and the ponds are full - soon to overflow down to the creek. I love this time of year, but nonetheless, I'd enjoy a jolt of sunshine. Make the most of the pool/reading/sunning time!

  4. Looks like you are having a great time...that strawberry shortcake looks amazing!

  5. I didn't realize that 3 of your sisters were lounging down south waiting on you to arrive! Fun times! Enjoy that reading and lounging.

  6. Oh how fun! Party time! A huge hello to all!

  7. It must have been wonderful to be with your sisters - enjoy the rest of your time in CALIFORNIA!

  8. Aww, sisters and strawberry shortcake. How wonderful :)

  9. Sista's - the best fun of all!!! Enjoy your down time Judy and soak up some sunshine for the rest of us too.

  10. What could be better? Time in the sun, moments with your sisters, books to read and strawberry shortcake sounds like the perfect combination. I hope you enjoy it all.

  11. Such a great list of delights - sisters, sunshine, books, relaxation, and strawberry shortcake!

  12. It's great you were able to have a mini family reunion, Judy! Enjoy the rest of your stay in CA!

    We were incredibly lucky to escape with very little hurricane damage. our hearts and prayers go out to those who weren't so fortunate.

  13. Judy,
    What a wonderful reunion! You have me longing, nostalgic for summer...

  14. Looks like you might be in Palm Springs again! We are having nice weather for you here in Southern California at the moment.

  15. It would not be kind to say I am jealous...but I am jealous!!! :-) Hope you have a great time!

  16. Sounds like your vacation is turning out just friends and fellowship.
    You have but one more week!!! enjoy the tennis. I have no partner this year.

  17. I can feel the heat and the relaxation of PS. You are missing the fall colours....but I'm sure you are glad to be out of the rain! Continue to enjoy....everything is good when there is strawberry shortcake in November:)

  18. I am soaking in your sunny view! It is just a lovely place you are staying.
    It is pouring rain tonight... Enjoy the rest of your vacation Judy! No one deserves it more than you!
