This is from last weekend — a wonderful time spent at my brother and sister-in-laws’ house. They have a beautiful 1911 home in Orange with a great back porch.

This weekend we’re in Idyllwild with some good friends. This is the first time I’ve blogged from a distant location. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my scanner, but I’ll put up the sketches when I get home. They say a snow storm is on its way here. Hopefully we won’t get snowed in!
