At this time of the year, its a good time revisit some older things.  In this case, it’s pictures from Grass Valley from last march.  Had one wonderful day where I saw dragons.  Now these were make believe dragons in a Chinese new years parade but still impressive.  Especially for a parade that lasted about 5 minutes.dragon3 dragon2 dragon1

We got to eat lunch at great outside restaurant, complete with cherry blossoms above.

Many of the buildings are very old in Grass Valley, old by California standards — 100 to 150 years old.  And that leads to some very interesting views of trees.

Back at the ranch, there were many signs of string.  Lots of flowers, cats, and even tractors eager to work.

Overall a great trip.  I had fun and will be returning soon.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.

  1. Wonderful pictures. I especially loved the tree pictures since I am a dendrophiliac. Amazing that the house is not damaged from the tree growing from its foundation. Thanks for sharing all these lovely memories.
