Christmas Eve

This last week have we had several days of heavy rain and some parts of SoCal more or less got flooded out, had mudslide etc. Today’s weather though was beautiful with a blue sky and warm sunny weather.  011

Had a a quiet weekend. Woke up Sunday morning with a cold, not fun but it will hopefully pass soon. We had much fewer Trick or Treaters this year than we have had the last couple of years. Hope you have a great week!

Norco Farmers Market

001   

Last Saturday when I enjoyed my morning coffee and reading the newspaper I saw a small notice that it was the Grand Opening of a new Farmers Market in Norco that day. Norco is small town just north of where we live so of course I have to go there and check it out.

By the time I got there was it almost time for the vendors to pack up their things but I managed to buy some fresh strawberries if nothing else.

   002

I will fore sure go there again but a bit earlier next time!
