Big plans! Foiled by fires, then it rained! Happy Thanksgiving!
My two best friends had reserved a campsite at the Pinnacles National Park for Thanksgiving weekend, a long weekend. We had chatted about it a little bit, they reserved the spot and the fire dangers in beautiful California shut it down!
I, being an overachiever when it comes to extending a 4 day holiday weekend, took the Wednesday prior to the holiday and the Monday and Tuesday after! Since the camping plans got canned I thought I might do some hiking. Silly me! I had told the boss on Tuesday before the holiday it wasn’t going to rain! So, Wednesday morning I got laundry done (off to a productive start) then headed to Deetjens for breakfast (did you expect anything less? Really?) Sitting there chatting with Steve, another local, I look out the window and said, “not hiking today”!
My plan for Thanksgiving day wasn’t ruined by the rain, I had planned on being lazy! Hadn’t counted on rain on Friday, but it didn’t matter it was too wet to hike even in the ‘hood!
So, on my last day before having to return to work, I went for a double and went to Deetjens (both Monday and Tuesday)! After breakfast I came home and since it’s supposed to rain on Wednesday, I swept the leaves off the roof! A task I’ve neglected for far too long!
Leaves are mostly off the California Maple…
…and on the Huckleberry…
And most every where!
..but they are all off the roof (no pic of that cuz it is slimy)!
This winter is already too wet to hike much! Wait and see is where it is right now!
