Back on the Trail......
So, I'm back on the trail, some days literally. I haven't posted anything since early February! I had good intentions to write but, that's how far my thought process went. Distractions (just plain LIFE) were many. In the beginning of 2017 we were inundated with a record snow pack. We kept busy snowshoeing the peaks around us. We also eagerly watched and waited for our grand baby. Hubby went "under the knife" to repair a rotator cuff injury. He's still recuperating to this day!
We made a mad dash to the Mendocino Coast for some much needed R &R. Of course, we took our traveling gray cat. She's the best... We walked the headlands, ate great seafood, scoured the beach, took lots of pictures, rested, drank more wine, etc. Good for the soul time!
Our grand daughter arrived before her due date. I'm sure she was eager to meet her new mommy and daddy. I can't say enough about the love I felt seeing her for the first time. I can't wait to teach her some family recipes and spend grandma time with her. I had a wonderful relationship with my grandma while growing up and I hope I can impact little Ryann Ava like my grandma did for me.
Summer is almost over...technically it's Fall, but could someone notify the person in charge of the weather. Turn the thermostat down or something! So, in anxious anticipation of Fall I'll leave you with some of my favorite recipes.
