Mosaic Monday: Visiting the Hotel del Coronado

After our unusual week of rain and whacky weather a week ago, we visited
the Hotel del Coronado for a nice sunny days' outing.
These photos are from one of the lovely shops on the premises of the Del.....
the Babcock & Story Emporium.


This shop had a lot of the items that I love to browse through but the prices were on the high side, so I just enjoyed looking and photographing the interesting vignettes.

 Please join Mary at Little Red House to see the what the other participants in Mosaic Monday have in store for you.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.....I appreciate and read all of them.

Show & Tell Friday: Weird and Whacky Weather

We’ve had some really weird weather last week here in San Diego, and in most of CA.
We got some really heavy hail many times and these photos are of one of the heaviest downpours.
Please check out Cindy’s My Romantic Home to see what the other participants have in store for you.



Here you can see how much hail was coming down at one time.  It didn’t stay long
as the temps outside were not cold enough to keep the hail from melting.
Thank you for looking in…. and have an enjoyable weekend.
I always look forward to reading your comments.

Outdoor Wednesday: A Winter Snow Storm

The only snow we get here in SO CA is in the mountains,  so I took a lot of snow photos during a recent trip to visit family in Spokane, WA.

The tree branches were so heavy with snow that some of them were cracking and breaking off while I was up there shooting photos.

Please hop on over to Susan’s A Southern Daydreamer and see all the lovely participants in Outdoor Wednesday this week.






Thanks for looking in.

I read and appreciate all your lovely comments.

Mosaic Monday: After the Storms

After almost a week of rain, hail, thunder and lightening, we decided to get outside on a beautiful day in San Diego.
We had company from out of the country and went to do the touristy thing around town.
These are some photos from the Hotel Del Coronado that I took on Saturday.



Thanks for looking in.....please stop by Mary's 
Little Red House and visit all the other participants in
her Mosaic Monday.
Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Show & Tell Friday: Between Storms



We’ve been having a very unusual week for southern CA in that it has rained almost the entire week and has rained VERY hard.

I managed to snap this photo from my back yard on Wednesday morning just as the sun was coming up and we had a few hours between storms.


I ran outside to get this photo of our lone rose left on the bush…..just as I was taking the photos, the rain started up again and I had to get back inside.


Now it’s absolutely POURING again, with some hail and thunder and lightening and it’s nearly black outside.

My hubby and our 8 year old grandson just went out for a walk before the downpour…..they have a large umbrella, but I’m afraid they will be soaked when they get back.  I know the 8 year old will be having a great time…..I don’t know about hubby!

Please pop over to Cindy’s My Romantic Home to see what all the other participants have in store for you.

Thanks for the visit……I LOVE when you take the time to comment.

Mosaic Monday: A Winter Wonderland

Well, after a few weeks off from blogging, I thought it was time I rejoined Mary
over at Little Red House for her Mosaic Monday.
These photos are of Mt Spokane  WA where I spent  a few weeks
visiting my daughter and her family.

The top center photo is the view she has from her kitchen window!
The top left photo was taken while snowing and the rest were taken
after the snow and when the wind was blowing so hard I could barely
stand up straight.
Please visit all Mary's other participants at Little Red House.

Thanks for visiting.....and as always, I LOVE your comments.

Mosaic Monday: Happy New Year

Happy New Year
I'm wishing all of my blogger friends a safe, healthy, cozy and Happy New Year!
Remember those loved ones who are no longer with you and smile when you think of them and all the good times you had together!
I'm joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.....please hop on over and take a look at all the fabulous  mosaics the other participants have in store for you.

I had meant to post this last week before The New Year and didn't realize that Mary had taken some much needed time off from blogging.

I really appreciate all of you, my blogging friends and I thank you for looking in and keeping me company.
Love, love, love your sweet comments. 
I will be taking some time off from blogging as I will be out of town for a nice family visit.....I will be back blogging as soon as I return in mid-January.
