Home at last

After most of the week on the road, am so happy to be home in California.
It’s great to be home, and the climate is amazing. Went out this morning into a grey, hazy morning and took a long walk with the dog, then came back and picked another round of cherry tomatoes from the huge, still-flowering tomato bush in the back of the yard.
Meanwhile, the orange tree is groaning–by December, we will be begging people to take navel oranges, or deep into Googling recipes for marmalade.
Later today, we’re going to either go for a hike or go up to Ridge and buy some of the new wine.
