Cabazon pictures

I need new Cabazon pictures. The only ones I have are when Niles was 2-yrs-old. He will be 11 soon so maybe we will go tomorrow. Tomorrow is New Years Eve 2011 and we should get a picture while he is still 10.

Is it bragging?

New Years Day is going to be a balmy 80 degrees Fahrenheit. I love it when we have a few warmer days in the winter. We throw open the windows and air the house out while enjoying short sleeves and shorts.

Orange Empire Railway Museum, Perris, California

Sometime next week we are going to the Orange Empire Railway Museum. This place holds lots of great memories for me. Of course, I will turn it into a Squidoo lens. The best thing about it is that it is about 10 miles away and always a fun adventure.

Just added Knott's Berry Farm

We are buying the year passes for Knott's. That means we can go everyday if we want to but Mr. Wonderful is excited about the chicken dinner. This also gets us into the three water parks. The one in Palm Springs is where we will probably go since there is less traffic going to Palm Springs than there is to Buena Park.

All of this reminded me that Knott's Berry Farm is an old friend. We starting going in 1953 when we move to Los Angeles County. There is so much to write about and I'm not sure where it will go but since I just started, it should be fun.

Christmas Eve 2011

After two days of a hard frost, all the leaves fell off the tree today. There are still some hanging on the Liquid Amber but the Mulberry trees have no leaves at all. Good thing I got my husband a leaf blower for his birthday yesterday. It's beautiful today and much warmer outside than it is in the house. I can see Mount Baldy from my window.

Mission Inn trip

The Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn in Riverside, California is a treat. It changes every year but it is always beautiful. Rushed home to create a Squidoo lens just for my pictures.

Planning our trip to the Mission Inn

It is time for our annual pilgrimage to the Mission Inn. The lights are lit and it is always magical with the lights, music and people. We have promised the boy ice skating for three years now so we'll see. Riverside is so close that this is a really fun event. Check out their website for more information.

Really nice write up on my California Citrus lens today

What a surprise to find that my California Citrus page on Squidoo is considered a lensmaking tip. I was not the one to find it, another squidooer found it and posted it on FaceBook. It is quite an honor.

I was right about the winds

Major damage all over Southern California but we were spared this time. Still haven't fixed the awing from the last time. However, we have no access to the side yard. 16 feet of tumbleweeds piled 10 feet high fill the area and it will take hours to remove them. We can no longer see our neighbor's house and it is less than 10 feet away. Our driveway is blocked by the tumbleweeds. This is great because I can update my "Tumbleweed" lens on Squidoo with new pictures. I can't wait for my neighbor to try to go out her front door. I have great pictures of that too.

Santa Ana winds

They are forecasting Santa Ana winds. The last time they blew, they damaged our driveway awning. However, looking at the bright side, the tumbleweed farm across the street has plenty of material to make a snowman and an opportunity for pictures for my tumbleweed lens on Squidoo and how to make a tumbleweed snowman how-to on Helium. Great chance to get new pictures to update both of them.

It's Thanksgiving Day

It's Thanksgiving Day and the leaves on the Mulberry trees are refusing to change color. Still, even with the chance of rain, it is going to be a beautiful day. The mountains that surround us are tipped with snow and makes us want to take the hour drive to Big Bear to play in the snow.

Completely California is just that

These are the many articles I have written on line that deal only with California. The list continues to grow because I have been in California all of my life and there are very few places I have not visited, although I must admit that I have never been to Death Valley. It's hot there.
