Thais and Lenin went out for dinner tonight and the kids came over for a while. We played Hide and Seek repeatedly. Avery mostly did the hiding – he’s pretty inventive about good hiding places and small enough to fit in them. He did ask me how dirty the clothes were in the basket. Uh .. not that dirty, I guess.
Another great class with Fayzah, Isa, Akmed, and Maryam plus Cesar.
On Friday morning, Phyl drove Carol to McClellan Airport where Jerry picked her up to fly home.
Phyllis drove her rental car to the airport on Saturday morning.
And a good time was had by all!
Time to make this year’s batch of Nocino. This is the 5th year. The oldest vintage we tasted was 2016.

Yesterday, Phyllis’ sister/my cousin Carol came from Bakersfield to visit for a few days. And what do the sisters have for breakfast when they’re on vacation? Yup.
This morning, Pete and Suzanne Price and I drove out to Justin’s. I needed to pick 30 green walnuts to make Nocino in a couple of days. I knew Pete and Suzanne would like to see Justin’s place.
Hurray! We were able to meet in person this morning at Neil Orchard Senior Center in Rancho Cordova. Cesar from SABA was a great addition. One of his skill areas is bike mechanics, therefore greatly appreciated by me. While 8 people signed up for the free class, only 1 showed up – Fayzah.
The good news, Fayzah’s three kids came to the class also.
This week, at Jim and Lucy’s .. in the shady and breezy south part of the driveway on a very warm day .. quite nice! Thank you Jim and Lucy!
