Having a Guest!

My brother-in-law's sister is coming from Connecticut today to visit for a week! I am so excited to have a reason to take a few days off work (who needs a reason?) and to take her out and about to see the sights!

I have plans to take Wendy to as many of my favorite places as we can squeeze in, all in one week! *Ü*

Let's see...

There's the Empire Mine in Nevada City,

and Old Town Sacramento & the California State Railroad Museum,

and my favorite Daylily farm and the Gold Country towns of Jackson & Sutter Creek,

and "high" tea at An Afternoon to Remember,

and dinner at Buonarroti Ristorante for fabulous Italian food,

and I'll have all my Red Hat girlfriends in for a gabfest to meet her!

Whew! I am going to have a whirlwind of a week! I'll take the camera and hopefully have a few interesting pix to post! I'll try to catch up with everyone as I can!

I'm off to add the finishing touches to the guest room.



  1. Thank you for visiting my blog and what fun to meet you in Northern California. I wish I had a 10 acre plot! I also love tangly overgrown English country gardens; mine has something of that in places but the more exotic plants of Southern Africa and palms give it a sort of out of Africa look. I don't have turkeys visiting but the ibis (hadedas) are regulars every day. I call them my resident peacocks. The dogs chase them now and again but otherwise they all live in harmony. Warm Wishes Eleanor

  2. What a great week you will have! It's such fun to show company the beautiful things in the area where we live. Sounds like you have many fine places to see. Enjoy!!!

  3. That sounds the like the most fun. I love with out-of-towners visit because that means that I can drag them to all the spots that I rarely visit without an excuse.

    Have a great time. I'm anxiously awaiting the pics and stories.
