I am in heaven. I had such a terrific visit with my cousin and his daughter. It has been years since we've seen each other. Our daughters were toddlers the last time.
His brother hosted a couple of delicious dinners at his house and we ran around like crazy for the time we had. It may take all week for the adults to catch up on their sleep. The kids seem just fine if a little sad it's over.
We went to Victoria Gardens for shopping, The Hip Kitty in Claremont to watch Mark play guitar and sing,. Laguna Beach for fun in the sun and more shopping, then back to Mark's for lobster and pasta. Yummm.
It went so fast though. I hope we get to do it again soon.

Spring is arriving. The fields are green and rain and snow are falling in the mountains. The cloud formations are gorgeous. There is such promise in the air. The teenagers are busy. Heck, we're all busy. Tomorrow one going to play rehearsal and the other for kayaking at the beach and who gets to do the driving and waiting? I just love the green though. We don't have it for long in Southern California. We're in low desert so our Spring is a transition from an unseasonably warm January(seems it happens like this every year) to back and forth swings from gorgeous soul warming 80s to back to the 30s. We've even had scorching temperatures in the 100s some years by March/April. Of course that burns the tender green of new shoots and they never come back quite the same. By May it will be tan and brown again. I am drinking in the green since I know how temporary it all is. Cycle of life and all. It is completely rich though, isn't it.
