Visiting With Rachael



Rachael came up a week ago, Sunday. Being Rachael, of course she couldn't help herself but had to bring a bunch of gifts along. The oranges above are just a few she brought from her friend Claudette's garden together with a large bag of lemons. The flowers are from Rachael. She also brought some snack food, magazines, and her hair cutting scissors. But first we went to town to have brunch, I suggested Kelcy's Diner, and old fashioned country diner with excellent food.

After brunch, we are full and happy.

Here I am, outside the diner.

It was a cold, dark, day. This is the railroad depot, rebuilt after a fire destroyed the old one in 2008.

The building to the right houses a German bakery with the most delicious eclairs, I've ever had.

Driving through canyon wilderness to the

Mountain Spirit Center. The Peace Bell structure was just as beautiful in the dark canyon, where clouds hung low on the mountain, as in the sunshine of our previous visits.

Neither of us was dressed for the cold and windy weather. It seemed just as cold inside, but we sat for a while anyway.

Then we hurried back to the car and home where Rachael cut my hair.


Then Rachael visited with the dogs. Soldier, who loves all 

women is head over tail in love with Rachael. See how he smiles?

Then Rachael had to go back to Burbank to one of the many jobs that keeps her going between her animal education programs. A short visit, but so nice, particularly since it was short and the drive is long. Thank you, Rachael, for everything.

  21. Hi Inger .. what a wonderful day you both had together - Rachael is a wonderful friend isn't she - but that weather looked pretty threatening .. but she obviously cheered your heart and that's what counts.

    Also just to mention that your next post on your husband's sugar relative - hasn't appeared for some reason .. perhaps it'll come back ..

    Cheers Hilary

  22. Wow, a friend who brings gifts, cuts hair, hangs out with you and your dogs love. Sounds like a real keeper.

  24. Hi Inger & Everybody - Thank You for all the kind words:) I love visiting Inger & her family up in the mountains. Inger - you are such a treasure! The weather could have been a little warmer, though. Even though I grew up in Northern Minnesota, I'm a big baby when it comes to cold weather anymore -- I've been spoiled by Southern California's sunshine!

  25. Happy Anniversary! And Congratulations to you and your husband. Every anniversary is a cause of celebration, even if spiritual, but 25 years is especially poignant. I'm sorry your husband is sick with the flu. There are some nasty bugs going around. Here's hoping his heath recovers soonest. I hope you'll be able to pop the champagne and have a toast to some wonderful years!

    Yipes, I've really messed up with the award. I'll check back in my comments. I must have written another commenter's name down. Sorry! (I've pretty much gotten out of the award business, too. Don't have the time either.)
