It’s fun to take a trip every now and then.
I’m so grateful that the opportunity to fly
from Montana to California is available to us now.
We had to cancel the trip last December
because of COVID-19.
– thank God –
we are able to use those tickets now…
and here we are!
On our way…
– waiting in Salt Lake City –
for our connecting flight to Sacramento…
And I am communicating via WhatsApp
with our daughter in Switzerland…
Don’t you love the way the internet shrinks our world?
Hi Mom & Dad … safe travels!
It’s a beautiful day here in Placerville, CA at our son’s house.
Ty & Monika treated us to an afternoon at a beautiful winery.
It’s just a short, lush, windy, oak-studded 30-minute drive
up the El Dorado hills from their house
(with lots of squirrel overpasses).
We enjoyed an afternoon of wine tasting and beautiful hors d’oeuvres in this wonderful setting.
My grandson, Sam, enjoyed a good book
and some snacks at a table of his own.
The weather was perfect!
Then we came back to Ty & Monika’s for a BBQed chicken dinner out on their lovely patio.

Don’t you think this is a clever use of old wine bottles?
Moni, Ty, Bob, Sam & I enjoyed chatting time
while the chicken was smoking on the Traeger.

Their BBQ patio area is covered with grapevines.
I love the way the sun plays with the leaves
and highlights the baby grape clusters!
I hope you have a relaxed Saturday, dear friends.
You can be sure, I will be thinking of you –
and praying your weekend is
as wonderful as mine
promises to be!
Embrace Travel Opportunities.
After more than a year of missed family gatherings,
we certainly will never take them for granted again!
This sign is at the base of one of those grapevines.
Such comfort in knowing God’s gotcha covered…
… no matter where you are.
See ya tomorrow
Love & Peace to you,
