2nd half of February: Granddaughter time, moving research, taxes, and more

I'm starting to think my months have these categories of activities - fun including family time, got to do it, and unusual events. So here is the last 2 week of my February. Nothing exciting I can assure you LOL.

- We drove to Berkeley in the rain and saw 4 rainbows! Three of the rainbows were very low so the top of the arch seemed to be sitting on the ground and the bands of color were very wide. Lovely. A long weekend with our family there including our much loved granddaughter. The drive home was in sunshine but there was snow visible on mountains where usually there isn't any.

- Lunch with our local DIL who was in our town for work. We went to Love Pho N' Mor with me having 4 seasons spring rolls and the others having soup. Nice visiting!

- Tax accountant appointment and review of our returns with my FIL's yet to do.
- Browsing neighborhoods and houses near Berkeley to see if there was a place that we would consider moving to.
- Finally getting 3 crowns installed after much effort to get them the right color and shape.

- Another ER visit for Hubby that turned out to be a chest muscle pull causing pain breathing instead of something much more serious.

    Rainbows are just amazing, aren't they? I don't ever tire of seeing them...possibly because we rarely have rain enough to have a rainbow! Seems you might have been able reach the pot of gold had you driven a little farther!

    1. They were amazing rainbows in the Salinas Valley of California which is a wide open space with mountains on the sides.

  2. Rainbows are so pretty and such a promise. I was at the dentist yesterday getting a temporary crown. I see you got three, that was probably expensive.

    1. I hope your dental work goes well. Yes it was expensive and a total surprise - cracks in teeth with very old fillings.

  3. I hope you find your place near Berkley. And your dental work goes well. I need an implant and I'm avoiding. All those old teeth and old dental work.


Week 11: A bit of a breather + tracking the true cost of moving

Two weeks to go before we move!  Just a little packing this week plus bringing the saved specialty boxes out of the attic. Found boxes for p...
