No time passes between friend visits

No time passes between friend visits

Maritza and the girls stopped by the other night for dinner while in the area for her family reunion. It was great catching up on news and just chatting about nothing in particular like we did back in AZ when we knew we’d see each other again in just a day or two. How I miss my Mamacitas, Claire & Maritza!


Apple-Ollalieberry Pie



On the way home from camping with some of our favorite friends in the neighborhood, we stopped to pick our own ollaliberries. They will be perfect and more plentiful in a couple of weeks, but we found enough for 2 pies. Tart, but delicious!

Point of view



A friend got the brilliant idea to set up day camp at a nearby campground that’s closed for overnight visitors and auto traffic until spring. We packed in picnic lunches and bikes, and had a blast riding the campgrounds without the worry of cars. We rode up to the lookout and had a wonderful view of the area. We definitely need to do this again before camping season starts!
