Last week at this time, I woke up and with a few choices; sit on the deck, work on the puzzle, craft with the cousins, or play cards. After indulging in all of that for a while, we went to the local farmer's market. What a colorful mixture of goods and food so different from the things we find at home. My Christmas vacation highlights from Southern California include van rides full of jokes and laughter, fish tacos and breathtaking sunsets everyday, becoming the surfing queen of the white wash as well as wet suits and boards for the whole family! I can't wait to go back.
