Several of you lead a traveling life and also have the energy to blog. I don’t know how you do it! Each time when I have only my Ipad with me, things go wrong. Yes, I have my post up, but linking memes with the Ipad is kind of iffy. Besides, where I am at that moment takes up all of my attention, and usually end up waiting till I’m home to resume my blogging
A little blurry drive-by shot of the side of the road
We were house hunting in Amador county (east from Sacramento) last week, and saw the mountains on the I5 in… brown while driving up there. Even chocolate brown can be beautiful in the right kind of setting:)
Who wouldn’t like to have a fence like that? So pretty! Plenty room to build a studio here for Ms. Artist, don’t you think? But… what’s this? It looks like a sinkhole next to this outside wall ….hmmm, I think we’ll leave for the next house …
A big and open living room – including a good size kitchen. We would paint the wall a color that fits better with the red brick. A dining table in front of the patio doors. Enough space in the yard for a big art studio. The only thing I need to decide is how much privacy I want. I like both to be with people, and also have down times.
How about a white or orange wall?

We saw six properties, so it was a day well spent, and ended it with a delicious Italian meal. Our real estate agent was very informative about where several places like restaurants, stores, hospital, etc. were located.
So that’s the latest about our house hunt, bloggie friends.

On the day we would return home we took a detour, driving through part of Yosemite Nat. park. Toward the W-entrance we began to see burnt trees and then I remembered …
last year around this time we had scheduled to spend a week near Yosemite, but cancelled, because there were two big fires burning nearby and would make for unhealthy air quality. To drive between towering burnt trees is like suddenly being transported to another planet without life. It was kind of eerie.
Relief to see there are still green leaves on earth – and flowers! Several bunches of these grouped together
Same spot, but with the Merced river in view, at places deep enough to swim.
Coming from lower elevations where it was 97 degrees, we ate our sandwiches at nearly 7000 feet – where temps were a cooler 85 degrees. Sitting on a tree trunk with the river in front of us,
I feel nature is a gift!
