Camerata Retreat

We had our choir retreat this Saturday - and the perfect weather for it.


It was a lovely day with it warm enough to eat both lunch and dinner outside  - and then time for a little snuggle under the blankets by the fire to watch the stars come out.



A lovely day and the food went down well. I'll be sharing some of those recipes in the next few days.



Now we are all ready to sing together  at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco on Thursday evening and a late night Easter Vigil service Saturday night.

PS Looking back at these photos - it looks like all we did was lounge around - but actually we did sing!!!  in between our social time :-D

Everything is tickety-boo

Here are the things that have happened this week that made me feel that life is tickety-boo!  Hope you had plenty too:

  • my parents are settling in well in their new home. They moved only a couple of weeks ago, and are already finding lots to do and meeting new people and their home is all sorted!
  • anticipation of my upcoming trip to see my sister, bro-in-law and nephews in Sanibel
  • trying new recipes - like cauliflower pizza! More on that later.
  • singing at a retreat from 9 - 3 on Saturday and loving it!
  • having the support of like minded people - particularly those in Camerata
  • a lovely luncheon at Kendall Jackson for their grape growers.  It was so delightful and interesting too to hear about the latest on wine sales and the industry etc
  • sharing our home with people for a different luncheon - even if it did get up to 97 degrees and we were eating outside!
  • sunshine and cool nights
  • the first fruits of our nectarine harvest
  • having so many quail families with all their babes living in our vineyard
  • new recipe books!
  • how about just books!  I loooooove books, as Mr Amazon will tell you :-D
  • missing family.  Yes, it seems odd that missing people should make me feel tickety-boo but it does.  Having special people in your life is what is important, even if you aren't together all the time.
