Idyllwild weekend

Hubby and I spent the weekend in one of the cabins up in Idyllwild.  I needed to get away and so did he.  We stopped by the horse ranch Friday afternoon to check on the remaining horses, and to give them 10 days' worth of psyllium to clean out the sand that they might have in their systems.  We also stopped back on Sunday afternoon.  The ranch owner has agreed to make sure they get it for the next 7 days.  Losing Cali was such a shock to us all, including the ranch owners.  She was such a happy, go-lucky little thing!  But, life goes on.  Our son and grandson spent Saturday night with us up at the cabin and our friends from Pinyon drove up for dinner, too.  We had lamb, chicken, and steak, with artichokes stuffed with garlic.  Oh, and plenty of wine.  We made smores after dinner, since the cabin had a free standing fireplace.  The grandson had a blast feeding peanuts to the blue jays and squirrels and collecting rocks.  Ahhhh...to be 3 years old again!  Life is full of wonder!  We took him for a drive to see the beautiful lit trees downtown and all the lights on the shops.

I don't believe I'll ever get over Cali's loss, but this weekend was a beginning.  Not an easy one without her, but a beginning, at least.

That's all for now.

  2. That's hubby relaxing on the cabin's porch. This little cabin was tiny, but it had a stove to keep us warm. In fact, Sunday night, it had to be 80 degrees in there and everybody (us, the son, and the grandson) threw off our blankets! We LOVE Cabin 1, but next time, we may rent cabin 2, which has a nice overlook to Strawberry Creek.
