For Your Weekend

What are you up to this weekend? It’s raining again here in Northern California, so I’m including a photo from a recent day trip to Napa when we were blessed with a warm(ish) sunny day. We’re staying close to home this weekend visiting friends, doing some work around the house and garden, and recovering from a cold. Because the immigration issue is still very much on my mind, I’ve included a few relevant links in addition to the lighter ones. Wishing you all the best for the week ahead. xo

    We’re having a good–if busy!–weekend around here. I spent yesterday doing all kinds of stuff on my blog (new template, reworking old posts, adding in more affiliate links) and then doing some photography and blogging work for a friend who’s starting his own business. I hope you have a great rest of your weekend even if you’re stuck inside!

      Serendipitous to read your comment yesterday because I had been browsing your blog at the same time! Sounds like you had a good productive weekend. We are supposed to have several more days of rain (ugh), but I’ve been enjoying the time to get some serious organizing done at home.
