This is a very short video to show you the pretty mist yesterday.
Today was snowing and blowing, so it was a good day to finish up some indoor projects.
The news is that California is due for an average or even an above average amount of precipitation over the next three months. I’m told as California goes, so goes Australia, so here’s hoping for a (gentle) end to the drought here, and in Australia.
Long story, but I created a new pen name for Nicci Carrera, and my book came out last Monday! It’s a spicy romantic comedy.
When hard-driving CEO Rick Nordan arrives in Lobster Cove under strict orders from the family doctor to take a break, he discovers the rental house comes with a family attached, including one sexy dynamo of a caterer. She’s nothing like his ex-fiancée who wouldn’t sign a pre-nup, but maybe that means she’s the real deal and not a gold digger.
Maya Cruz wants life for her widowed mother to get easier by renting out her house during the summer. But teaching Mama business means explaining Rick isn’t a “guest,” he’s a “customer.” And the first thing Mama does is invite Rick to join their family activities. Having Rick around wouldn’t be so bad if Maya didn’t find him so attractive. The last time she fell for a vacationing millionaire, she had her heart broken.
She swore off his type, and he’s not looking, but this might be a recipe for love.
Get a grip. She was just proving Rick right about her footwear with her clumsy performance.
“Those shoes aren’t made for lifting,” Rick said.
“These shoes make me your height. Perhaps you don’t like that.”
He chuckled. “Still got a few inches on you, Maya.”
“Still got a few hands on me too.”
He grinned, leaving his hands where they were. “Sorry.”
“Somehow your smile belies your apology.”
“Are you sorry?” His brows rose in inquiry, but his tight half-smile showed confidence that her answer would be no.

We were traveling during the lead-up to the big storm. We drove through some rain, heading here from Sonoma, figuring no problem, the canopy in the forest will protect us from the rain. When we arrived, the sun came out!
This mushroom was growing below the fallen stump you see above.
The trees have an emanation. It is very peaceful here. I want to go back and stay longer.
The pileated woodpecker is very cautious. He took a long time to come down to the bird feeder.
I think this bird lived up on this branch, but I don’t know what she’s doing now, because there’s a huge storm buffeting the area now.
Turkeys are beautiful.
The ravens in Mendocino are huge.
We had to cut our trip short due to a huge storm hitting today. It’s exciting to be getting some rain and snow in California!
