Still breathing....

Yes, I am alive in case any of you were wondering.  We have been busy cleaning out 20 years of "stuff" from our house.  I have to say that I am not one to keep a lot of things that I am not using.  I have been known to give things away and then want them back later, but I can assure you that Hubbie has never, ever done that.  He has sentimental attachments to all kinds of things, so getting him to participate in the purge has not been all that easy, but he is coming along.

The end of September we went out the the Silicon Valley to visit our youngest son who is now working at Facebook.  We stayed in Los Gatos which is a beautiful town and so pedestrian friendly.  We walked each day before breakfast and after dinner.  We spent a couple of days doing things with my son and his girlfriend and a couple of days toodling around on our own.  So far the only pictures that have surfaced ( other than old cars etc) are ones from Carmel and the 17 Mile Drive.  Carmel has to be the ultimate housepeeping location.

Click for larger images and to see details otherwise missed :)

Without further ado:

























I took a picture of this house the first time I was in Carmel in 2000.  Still has that adorable stenciling.



I would love to go back and stay for a few days and get up each morning and wander the lanes and courtyards of Carmel.  Maybe stay with Clint at his Mission Ranch or the in-town Hotel that is owned by Doris Day...wonder if Gig Young is there.....  OK, you have to be a certain age to understand that reference.


Later,
Janet

  2. Let's be Realtors there, ok?? I think I'd show more property just to get inside some of these homes...so neat!

    Gig Young = That Touch of Mink

    Philip Shayne: What happened?

    Roger: I was knocked down two flights of stairs and then viciously attacked by a dog in a taxi. This has been the most satisfying day of my life.

    Still funny. :)

    Glad you had a nice visit....Cassie

  15. Carmel is on my list of things I must do before I die....I have been wanting to go there for years but can't find anyone to go with...the homes are beautiful...I'm hoping to have daughter go with me one day and drive from San Diego (so we can stay at the DelCoronado) all the way up the coast....
    We too are about ready to get rid of "stuff" from 26 years of saving everything....the old house is basically a big storage unit...being in the new house neither one of us wants to go back over to the old house for longer then ten minutes.....so it just sits storing years of just plain crap....

  19. Thanks for the parsnip idea. It does sound good. I'll have to give it a try although I'm not sure if parsnips are low carb. I'll have to check it out.

  23. Oh my gosh, you were in my old stomping grounds. David and I lived in Los Gatos (Auberne` was born there) and Carmel has been a fav since I was a little girl. Isn’t the tuck box amazing. Good luck with deep cleaning. I do not look forward to the day we have to. Clarice
