I am thankful for a friend who becomes more dear to me every year, Dad's wife. She is traveling a difficult path with Dad with such thoughtfulness and grace.
I enjoyed more time with family today. It has been a lovely day and such a good visit. Today included a walk around the neighborhood ending up at a nearby park for their annual Almond Blossom Festival. Just the right size to walk around and be finished before you're tired of it.
Another good drive back home. I went on a bit of a wild goose chase trying to find a spot for a photo of purple fields just off the freeway. (probably lupine) Never did find a place for a photo but I did travel through a lot of agriculture at the south end of the valley.
This is the Antelope Valley looking toward Tehachapi:
The very white snow capped peak can be seen from both the Antelope Valley and the San Joaquin Valley sides of the Tehachapi range. I wonder what its name is?
