Fast Forward

Most of the time, I really believe I should be back in the day of these photos. The women who lived and worked here were my family....  I am more that type of pioneer woman, not a modern pioneer woman.
Fast forward to today... We are reworking our media, just to see what we seem  be able to fit... Kind of like trying on new shoes ... Wish it were easier for me to learn!  I often wonder if anyone else has as hard a time as me.  I am so thankful to have some real pros who can advise or even just do! God bless them.

It is hard to believe the choices there are for everything, it is just hard for me to find them! I admire those who have the instinct of where to look on their screens, the courage to not worry about making mistakes, the whimsy to just play with it and the time it takes to do so!  What a world we are in ! Reminded of Brad Paisley's "Welcome to the Future" 

Sometimes it takes a Friend to get us to DISCOVER new things

Sometimes it takes a friend to get us to discover new things, even in our own front yard!  My friends Anita and Bob, were just here from Austin, Texas and we spent several days completely immersed in outdoor activity! San Luis Obispo County offers so many wonderful experiences without having to look very far! One of the highlights was kayaking out front of the house.   There are caves to the south, some of which I have paddled through in the past, but yesterday, the three of us beached our kayaks in a cove where these amazing caves and arches were.  It was so dramatic!  I could not believe I had not tried this before, as it is only a short paddle south from our beach.  Needless to say, Bob and Anita loved it too.
Anita will be announcing our visit to Austin this fall with a book signing in the Westlake area.   It will be great to get back to Austin. Thank you both for the great time and for inviting us to come to Austin next!
