I've always wanted to visit England and Scotland. Half of my ancestors came from the United Kingdom.
I had a wonderful trip to England and Scotland. We had amazing weather and saw so many fabulous sights. The food was much better than I expected!

Perhaps we can have some "pleasant" (cooler) weather here, too!

My favorite month of the year is nearly here! I love October. It means that summer is almost over in the Santa Clarita Valley. I do believe that August, September and October are the hottest months of the year in the SCV. Come Nov. 1, we'll finally cool down. So Oct. 1 means only 31 more days of wretched heat, I hope! However, October has many other charms, including the annual "spookfests' that inhabit the historic SCV.

Don't you love three day weekends? Labor Day is always considered the unofficial end of summer. Are you hosting one last pool party? Having a barbecue? Traveling this weekend out of town? Whatever your plans, enjoy! It would be nice if the weather cooperates and we get some cooling temperatures! Of course, summer temperatures usually continue to hang around the Santa Clarita Valley through the end of October.

It's the last Sunday in August. How did that happen? What are you doing for Labor Day weekend? I'll be getting ready for my trip to England and Scotland. I'm still seeking reader suggestions for best "tea" in London and other ideas.

I've just returned from my retreat on Whidbey Island, Wash. It was a lovely week which I spent visiting with friends, drinking salted caramel hot coco at the Local Grown coffee shop and taking in a great community theater production of "The Full Monty."

It seems that spring has sprung! I've enjoyed watching the trees and flowers bloom throughout the Santa Clarita Valley in recent weeks. The hills are even green. I know it won't last, but it is lovely for the moment. I am looking forward to the yuccas that bloom in May, my favorite time of year.
