One of our favorite places in Sacramento is Old Town, because it has also the harbor, a steam train station, lots of eateries, and many events held close by
Old and new blending together. The old Delta King and the modern high rise in the background of Sacramento. The first now used as a hotel and restaurant.

Saw some turtles by the pillars close to the water- enjoying the sun

Purple is one of my favorite colors to wear. I don’t pay attention to those lists that say “what a color means,” because every person attaches a different meaning to a color. Purple is a mix of blue and red (two primary colors!).
For me darker purple means a deeply mysterious and strong color. Light purple or lavender is delightful, but not extremely feminine like pink.
Some lists describe purple as envious/jealous … where do they get that from??

Non-digital (Photoshop helps!) of one of the side doors of the castle in the suburb of St Germain – the last stop on the tram – an hour from the center of Paris. We sat for 4 hours at city hall to get to know more about my background, but they couldn’t find anything. They were very nice though, since “American” was written on our faces:)
Later we discovered that there are several castles called St. Germain! Since Ancestry.com is more focused on the USA and does not even have the full last name in their files, we’re at a stale mate.

Pumpkin time (Tue Texture)
If we would ever move countries again, I would miss the pumpkin time the most. Aside from delicious pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread or cake
the seeds are of tremendous health benefit against inflammation!
A condition physicians discover now, is just as much a health threat as heart problems. My brother, MD, says that by the age of 60, most people have some form or arthritis. So, roast the seeds when you use the pumpkin!
The skies are more dramatic in Fall
