hoping to ride bikes on the trail sometime this week, but with the thunderstorms, you cant make plans too well! i will take pics if i go... saw a beautiful rainbow this evening but i couldt actually take a photo of the whole thing - it wouldnt FIT in the camera!!!

what a gorgeous day it was today! i just kicked around....

and took pics and ran around my old home town area... the river is beautiful with the woodsy area at this time of the year,

...tough to find a view because there are so many leaves on the trees!!! and the flowers.... whew.... well here you go... these were from my grandma z's house that mum planted a long time ago... we have no idea what they are called, do you??? (if so, please email me and let me know!!!)

and the lilies are all blooming....

went to see the pittsburgh songwriters tonight and saw van, tom, joe, and kate perform on such a gorgeous night. and afterwards we went drinking... tee hee. here are mum and i drinking margaritas and mojitos! yum!

thats all for now!!!

back in los angeles, still relaxed from my great trip! forgot to share my excitement of meeting a local celeb when i was home, author arthur parker, who wrote the book "the monongahela" which is all about our famous river!!! he was so sweet to sign my very own copy!

here i am with art and my book! a second book is soon to come out, and i cant wait!!!!!

the flowers are really blooming here in california, maybe because its been damp and nice for them to grow!!! here is a pretty garden of wildflowers!!!!

i will keep you posted on other stuff as it happens!!!!
