We had beautiful weather the whole drive. This is Mt Shasta which is always such a beautiful sight towering so high.
California is experiencing a severe drought which was very apparent when we drove by Lake Shasta which supplies water to much of California.
I can't remember ever seeing it this low. They will need alot of rain to get out of this drought.
This is what I was working on in the car. It's another block of "Reminiscence" by The Rabbit Factory. Someday I'll get it finished!
On Friday I met up with Anne at HomeGoods and then we had a yummy lunch at Macaroni Grill. Go on over to her blog and see what fun things she got at HomeGoods. She LOVES this time of year. Bunnies multiplying everywhere.
Saturday I met up with my girlfriends and we had a whole day of shopping, eating and laughing.
We all met at Janet's house and she had bagels and fruit for us. Everything looked so festive. It was all decked out for Valentine's day.
The bowl was as pretty as the fruit.
And under our plates? Some fun stickers! She also made us towels with hearts applique'd in wool, a geranium plant, a shaker candle (actually it's a candle in a jar that you'd put parmesan cheese or something like that). And we also got a cute little candle and dish. I forgot to take pictures. Sorry about that.
So, after visiting for awhile, we went over to Bearpaws and Hollyhocks Quilt Store for some retail therapy and by the time we were finished shopping there, it was time for lunch.
Aha! Look where we went. Yep, my fav place...Panera Bread. I had my usual French Onion Soup and was a happy camper.
From there we went to Auburn to Cabin Fever Quilt Shoppe. It was a Top 10 quilt shop a few years ago in Quilt Sampler magazine. Sorry I didn't get any pictures, but I get very involved in my fabric shopping and actually, didn't even think about it. Bad blogger!
On our way back to the car we spotted this darling little sandwich shop. Too bad for us....it was too early for dinner. (Although that hasn't stopped us in the past...LOL)
Saturday I'll post pictures of all Janet's decorating. Her house looked so cute.
I wanted to thank everyone for the nice comments you've been leaving me. Right now I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the emails because I usually try to respond to your comments. However....my Mom has DIAL-UP! Needless to say, it took way too long to get online to answer the comments and to try and read a blog was nearly impossible. So, if you asked me a question and I didn't get back to you, please ask again. I know you'll all understand if you haven't heard from me.
