Day 261 – Plaid week Day #3

Primary Plaid

This is one of my favorites : ) Like the red/turquoise one that Sue loves this is one I’d leave on the table all the time if the cats would let me.

Day 116 – Not so fall : )

Hello bright florals : )

We’re having topsy-turvy weather around here. Normally this time of year is gorgeous, 70’s, cool nights…but you know something is askew when its warmer in South San Francisco, where I work, and Walnut Creek, where I live. If its 68 degrees there it should be around 80+
