Saturday in a sweet little town

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!  I had planned to prepare documents to submit to the CPA for taxes (eeek), but the weather was nice and rain, very cool, just the way I like it, so I had to spend time out of doors and enjoy wearing scarves, hats, jackets, boots, ***sigh***.  I have been horrible about take pictures lately, but I will do better! 

Saturday Edgar and I went to a cute little town called Julian. Known for its apple pies and a weekend destination, cute little shops and great hiking.  The plan was to hike after I bought Edgar a valentine sugar-free apple pie (I'm converting him, little by little, haha!) to take home and we walked around the town in the rain, however a little detour down an out-of-the-way road caused the time to get away from (me!). 

I met the sweetest lady, Debbie, at Funky Spun, who raises angora rabbits and she sells spun angora wool hats, cloches, scarves, gloves, wraps.  The web site doesn't have nearly all of the beautiful products she has. She had her 8 pound angora in the shop with her, with whom I fell IN LOVE!  He was HUGE and so sweet and adorable.  So we spent about 1 1/2 hours talking bunnies.  And exchaning information.  In the event one of her lovely angoras needs a new home.  Just in case.  I love big bunnies, they are like little dogs, following you around!  Of course I bought a cute wooley cloche in spring mint green, with pink; looks like something that ETSY would have and it is so nice to support a small business.

Sunday was a 6-7 mile hike in Rancho Bernardo, again in the light rain, so nice and refreshing.  The hike was great, first time out since the whole foot injury thing in December.  Yes, I'm wearing a foot and ankle wrap today under FLAT boots (I think that's why I've not had any desire to the pictures...I've been wearing flat shoes for 2 months!)  I like my boots, but a girl needs HEELS! ;)

Oh i love those bunny angora things. Alcapa wool is also so heavenly. I am a sucker for bunnies. We have too :P
I wrote a comment on my blog but thought i would write the same here. I have to say, you have a great job girl. It's a very hard to get a job in an Ambassy. Lucky you!
And you know, you are so sweet!
Yes, i am not worried about anything. Everybody i had to talk to here and in The French side has been extremely nice. I was thinking about the French Ambassy and i have to say more details about it. The People who work there are wonderful, they help you on the phone....many times on the phone... because even i with a French University level, i can't understand anything.LOL.It's too complicated.. It is just that there is too many papers. Too many steps. Then, i have to spend a lot of money going to San Fransisco. Wait for ever to get my French papers...
I wish France would step up with the internet and paper work. They are 10 years behind the States, but well, they will get there.:). The thing is....This is my journey. Maybe there is a reason for everything. I feel very good about my choice and i believe that if you follow your heart and guts and feelings...You can't be wrong :)
Have a lovely day. Thanks for being my friend.
