Coming up for air!

Summer is beginning for me. The weather is finally cooperating, the garden is showing signs of vegetables, classes are finalizing and I'm feeling very light. We took off for a 3 day get-away to Fort Bragg/ Mendocino a couple of weeks ago and it was wonderful. I love the ride to the coast. Our little car(stick shift) is like driving a sports car (which it isn't) and it took the curves so well. The mountain country was lush, drove through some coast redwoods, saw vineyards in the rain on the way back. The weather on the coast was perfect. I walked the headlands and took beaucoup pictures of wildflowers. I only know the name of one of them and hope to research the names of the others. Maybe I'll get around to posting them & someone will recognize them.
I'm finishing up a knitting project, reading a new blog, following up on 2 favorite food blogs and even cooking some new dishes.

Hurray for summer!

What is my name?


  1. Yay, you're back to your blog! Sounds like you and Ernie are doing well! We think of you often! Happy Summer!

  2. Hi Diana,
    I see you're back blogging again. I've starting using my own blog this year. I spent four years focused on blogging with my class and now that I don't have a class I'm finally using my own blog. It's a way for me to record my thoughts, events, opinions, interests etc, and for friends and family to keep up with what I'm doing.
    I hope you're enjoying the summer. We are having a mild but wet winter so far.
