California Getaway...

Mr Warren and I took a short getaway this weekend with friends from The Long Beach Bow Hunters. We headed a few hours north so the guys could attend an archery shoot, while the girls had wine tasting on our minds. 
As we made our way to the range Saturday morning, we got a bit turned around. When we stopped to ask for directions, it suddenly hit me... we were asking for directions at  Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. What a crack up! Being the paparazzi I am, I of course had to take a photo...

While this isn't Napa, it is a close second as the area winery's have grown. The weather was amazing and the countryside is a mix of seaside, rolling hills, and oak trees.


We all enjoyed drinks poolside later in the day, laughing and enjoying the company of friends my husband has known for years. Such a great way to spend an afternoon...
Mr Warren and I came home Sunday evening to this...

A huge branch from a tree in our backyard had fallen in the Santa Ana's that blew while we were gone. It luckily lay between the fence and the window in the livingroom. I'm so glad it didn't take out the fence, or the window! There are only a few inches either way and one or both would have been lost. For those of you who aren't local, we have huge warm winds that occasionally blow in from the dessert sending temps soaring, and tree's falling. I guess housekeeping Monday will have to wait until later, as we have a bigger mess out back... 
home sweet home!
