Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Taking a Chunk Out of Winter

A few weeks ago we decided that we were tired of this...
So we hooked up our trailer and went in search of this...

  We enjoyed three weeks of warm and sunny weather in southern California.

We stayed on the Rincon Parkway just north of Ventura and just south of Santa Barbara.

Max enjoyed it too.

Just look at that view!
We met some friends and camped in a cow pasture on her cousin's ranch.

Just look at that view!

An out of order picture (thank you blogger
While on the parkway we saw this cute little trailer called
'The Egg and I'  one of the Sister's on the Fly.

See, I told you it was a cow pasture.
The cows came and visited us every morning. 

Last Friday we came home to three feet of snow on our patio table.
Well, three feet of snow on everything!

Bye bye flip flops, hello wool socks.

What a great thing to do to survive this winter weather! If only I were retired.....
Your camping in a cow pasture sounded quite interesting!

I am so glad you got a chance to get away!!! What a nice break from the cold and snow and drearieness (hmmm, is that spelled right?)

I am so glad you got to get away to the warmth!
Yes, I would say it will be awhile before you will venture out in your flipflops : )
