We recently spent three days in Temecula, California. During an early morning walk, I saw this lovely white floribunda rose. The photo below shows more of the same plant.
Today was my guitar lesson day. Above you can see my guitar. It’s a Taylor ‘Baby’, and the 3/4 size is perfect for me. A full size guitar is just too big. I learned that many women play the smaller size. In an earlier post I showed a photo of my first guitar. Take a look. I began teaching myself, but finally started taking lessons. Now I actually practice every day. It’s amazing how having a teacher can make you push yourself harder. At least that is how it is for me. I love playing and I’m so glad that I made the move to private lessons and a guitar that fits me perfectly.

Surfing in Austin Texas? Our son was raised in Southern California and grew up surfing. He also authored the book, Surf Stories by Ryen Phillips. A fun read, especially if you enjoy surfing tales.

He and his wife moved to Austin, Texas several years ago. They wanted to stay near the water, so they bought a sailboat and began sailing on beautiful Lake Travis. The photo below was taken from their boat. Continue reading
