April Update and End of Month Thankful Thursday

Working on that Spring & Summer bucket list and checked a few off on April.

1. I had a fancy cocktail at a fancy bar - for our 41st anniversary. I was great fun as we had stayed home the last two anniversaries and this was a new to us local restaurant.

2. Our son took us and our granddaughter out for lunch at a taco food truck in Berkeley.

3. I completed one drawing. I used a portion of a photo of mine as inspiration and watercolor pens for a different color effect. I kind of like it.


4. I made reservations for a one night early May get away in Santa Barbara. I also got tickets to a special exhibit at the SB Art Museum and we will meet local son and DIL for dinner. 

Things I am especially thankful for these past two weeks include that my club was able to award four scholarships this year instead of 3 as in past years. A testament to the rental coordinators getting the clubhouse fully rented to ongoing businesses which has given us a reliable stream of income.


  1. Great picture of you!! SB is so lovely this time of year. Your drawing is quite nice. It's fun to try new things.

  2. Sounds like a good April and fun things to look forward to as well. Happy Anniversary! We were also able to celebrate our April wedding anniversary out this year.

    1. Isn't it nice to be able to go out again? Happy belated anniversary to you.

  3. Sounds as if you are working your way through that bucket list. Enjoy your trip and that is a lovely drawing.

    God bless.
