Pasadena, California

Pasadena is a lovely old city (by California standards) and well worth a visit.

Husb and I are off to New York on Wednesday for a week to see what autumn looks like outside of California.

Pasadena birthday Weekend

Mulberry Tree by Vincent Van Gogh.
Husb and I spent a wonderful weekend in Pasadena. We visited the Pacific Asia Museum, the Pasadena California Museum of Art, and spent a glorious 5 hours in the fabulous Norton Simon Museum which is a most spectacular place. Van Gogh, Monet, Degas and soooo many more. What a gift! We also had dinner at Il Fornaio in Old Town Pasadena, to celebrate my birthday, but husb didn't tell the waitperson...but I knew it was my birthday and we had a lovely time!

So, last year I hoped for 57 birthday comments on my blog, and I got nearly 40...This year I'm 58. Please do means a lot to me...I'd love to reach my goal of 58 comments...

poppy peek

A peek at my work in progress, fufilling two purposes. I'm working on lessons for the classes I'm teaching starting next month, and I'm creating a journal for SCRC, for a caregiver.

I took this photo on an early morning walk at a inn outside of Cleveland. It's now my screen saver. Thought I'd share it with you all too.
