Latest Chalk Paint Projects and Cisco

 We have four of these adirondack chairs, which all looked like this. Nine years of weathering. However, yesterday and today, I painted two of them and now they look like this!

This is the Annie Sloan chalk paint in Napoleonic Blue, with dark wax. SO pleased with the results! AND, I did another section of kitchen cabinets yesterday.
Today I also did ground work with my newest horse, Cisco. Sadly, my sweet Kahlua passed away February 13. Cisco is a work in progress, but is doing really well.

Temecula Olive Oil!

Wow! I sautéed some chicken with this amazing jalapeño olive oil from Temecula my sissy bought me and used a Thai simmer sauce. Yum!! Naan breads and creamed spinach...super yummy!!
Last weekend, my other sister and I took her to Carlsbad for a birthday weekend. We had a blast!
Visited the California Wolf Center in Julian, which is a fabulous little town, went to the flower fields, and had a wonderful splurge dinner at Vigilucci's. Our room at the Beach Terrace Inn was amazing:
It was huge, with two queen beds. We had an amazing visit. I think next time I drive down south, I'll take the 15 again. It is worth the detour to not deal with the congestion in LA, and the OC!! Plus, Temecula is super cute!
