WOW!  What a week so far!  I almost missed WOYWW this week...sorry I am so late but I did make it to the party!  We have been on the road since Oct. 23 and still have a couple weeks to go.  We are currently in Cloverdale, California and will be touring the wineries in Sonoma tomorrow. We toured several places in Napa Valley today and enjoyed visiting places we had been before.

Since last Wednesday we have been to Tucson AZ, the Grand Canyon, Tehatchapi, CA, Berkley, Oakland, and San Jose California where our daughter lives.  I have taken hundreds of pictures but will only post a few here.  Still no craft work or desk to share with you.  My daughter gave me a ton of new stuff and stamps when I visited with her so I will try and do something soon to share.

Okay a few photos...btw this is WOYWW and if you would like to see a few crafty desks link up with Julia at Stamping Ground!

We journeyed on to the Grand Canyon and Williams AZ for the night.

Next stop was in Tehachapi CA and a visit with Chucks sister Joanne and her son and daughter in law.

A beautiful Rose hedge that bordered the road for over a half of a mile and ended in a palm tree cluster!

We continued north to the San Francisco Bay and and a Halloween party and fun visit with him in Oakland.  Our daughter moved to San Jose in June so it was fun to be able to spend time with her and her husband.  Heather has some beautiful flowers around her house.  Beautiful like she is.  Never get enough pictures of all over us together!  

 Okay enough for today.  Will try to post more tomorrow!  Have a great week.  If you visit my blog and leave a comment I will try and visit yours between now and next Wednesday!
