This summer...

has mostly included watching Lost and reading Harry Potter....which I am respectively almost done with and recently done with!!

But, more importantly my summer included a much needed visit home to AZ, camping, a visit to Yosemite to see friends and a visit from a an old friend during which time we visited the SD Botanical Gardens!!...

AZ....oooh, I love this boy...

La Jolla Birthday BBQ and Bocce...

Camping at Laguna with Bocce Ball and friends...It was so hot and peaceful there :) Also, my 30th birthday!

Yosemite with friends ...cooking chicken and drinking giant mojitos!

San Diego Quail Botanical Gardens...

Nurturing my Orchid plant that finally bloomed after a year of loving care!!!

Oh yah...and moving....
to this sweet spot...looking down at the 'cottage' from the main house half way down the stairs overlooking Teclote Canyon...

View looking back up at the main house...

View of our front 'porch' the washed out part beyond the trees is the canyon.

Just inside the door....

View from the far corner looking back at front door.

And my new 'sister' Evie :) standing guard.
