The dark clouds are lifting and I am starting to feel a bit better. The sadness has mellowed and I am trying not to think about the “what if’s” and the “yeah, but’s”. Those things will kill you.
We are taking a trip on Friday. The California Gold country is a beautiful place and really special at Christmas time. We will start in the south in Jamestown and work our way as high as we want. Looking forward to visiting the town where my father, John Pendleton Brumby, lived in up until his death a few years back. Going to visit his grave site and drive by his old house in a town called Groveland (a hop and a skip from Yosemite National Park) and drive through my old summer childhood stomping ground Big Oak Flat (which has a tiny store, a post office and maybe a gas station). Staying at a VRBO that is fairly reasonably priced….points from my credit card covered the house entirely..WOOT!
It’ll be a bit chilly for me (highs in the low 50’s) as I am a fair weather girl but, hopefully, I’ll have enough layers to keep me from getting grumpy. I’ll post pictures as soon as I can.
Until then, I hope you find your grateful and that when you do, you are able to share it with someone else.
