All two of you... :-)
It isn't that we are neglecting you right out of the gate. Only that my co-author and I are halfway across the world from each other right now and dealing with some very different circumstances. While Valerie is just starting to set up house, starting from scratch in an unfurnished flat, I am traipsing around the Southwest visiting friends and family.
Recently we spent a long weekend in Chico, CA visiting dear dear friends and taking in the early Springtime. Table Mountain was a riot of color, looking a bit like a Jackson Pollack painting with so many wildflowers.
We ate fantastic burgers at Burgers and Brews in Chico, before heading to Made in Chico for a bit of a browse. That store is so fun, especially since Butte County holds such a dear place in my heart. I grabbed a couple Chico Bags. These bags are so handy to have around, and it was fun to pick them up at the source.
We also had fun go-kart racing with our friends. Scott was a speed demon, getting on the top scores for the week. We all raced together and then the adults sat out while the kids had more time, but last minute Scott jumped in again trying to beat his score. So much fun.
So, as you can see, it isn't that we are neglecting you on purpose, dear reader. Watch this space, however. This week I will tell you about our trip to see the winery in Vina, CA. The New Clairvaux winery is pretty special thanks to the stone chapel brought all the way from Spain. I can't wait to tell you all about it!
