Out of it!!

Sorry that I have been out of it lately! Last week everyone in the house was sick with the flu. That pretty much ruled out most of my time on the computer or at my sewing machine. With Christmas soon on it's way I don't know how much I'll be on here, so I just wanted to give you all an update!

It is snowing here right now. No, really, it is. I'm not joking. I know that one usually doesn't associate snow with coastal California but I don't think that one would ever associate Crescent City with the idea of "sunny coastal California" anyway. Warm beaches and sunshine? Yeah, not happening here. Instead of the beach bodies sprawling out on the sand we get things like dead whales and sea weed along with tons and tons of driftwood. Elephant seals, small rocks and tsunamis line our shores. But back to the snow........ our low on Tuesday is supposed to be 27 degrees so I'm sure we'll be seeing more of it. I'll share some photos that Gavin took this weekend of a potential property for us to buy. He went up Saturday and looked at it with a friend of his that is selling it. It's 20 acres. Not as big as we would like but still a good chunk of ground.




Ooooh and on a really neat note, along with the flu, I got my late birthday/ early Christmas present last week! My fabulous parents bought me a Cannon Rebel XS. Now, if I can just figure out how to work it well, I bet I could take some pretty neat photos! Just driving home from taking Wyatt to school today brought out my little inner photographer that watched as all these potentially amazing pictures going by out the van window. Old barns, rainbows, snowy hills........so many shots, so little time!!

I'm so sorry you were all sick! Hope you're all feeling better. I can sympathize with the weather, you're probably on the same cold front as us. It was 20 degrees when I headed to work at 9am! But I'm loving the snow...and we're supposed to get more on Wednesday and Saturday!
