Happy Day 38 Breakfast at Big Bear Lake

Perfect weather and a chance to escape the heat of the valley floor lead us to Big Bear Lake. We found a restaurant called The Log Cabin where we sat on the patio and I enjoyed a breakfast of hash  and hash browns, rye toast and 2 fried eggs over easy.  A cute pooch was out there begging. Seems he lives in a nearby house but knows a good meal when he smells ones.
Then we cruised over to see the lake, and on the way home we visited a thrift store. I bought a craft book aimed at teenage girls and a bag of stuffing for crochet animals that I like to make. I was tempted by a cool painting of Kokopelli. But I have nowhere to hang the paintings I already have so I passed on it.
Then we had a twisty curvy drive back to Lucerne Valley and triple digit temps.

Happy Day 36 and 37

I got sidetracked from the 100 Happy Day Challenge. My daughter just published her 100th photo and she is now done with the challenge. I'm somehow still in the 30's. Ah well, that's what happens when there is a sudden death in the family. I'll keep plugging away at it though and doing my best to focus on happy things.

Happy Day 35 Sempervivum Arachnoideum 'Cebenese"

All my life I've propagated succulents. Then when we moved from Anaheim to Lucerne Valley, CA, I brought some of my succulents with me to start off my collection at my new home. Only they all froze a few weeks later when temperatures dropped. I was very upset. Now, almost 2 years later I bought another succulent. It has a bunch of common names including hens and chickens and spider web plant and house leek. Right now it's on the bathroom shelf. I knocked off two bits in the truck, so I'll put those 2 in a pot outside and hope that they root. The care instructions say it can handle cold weather so hopefully I'll be able to keep it growing.
