An Autumn day at Rancho San Rafael Park ~ Reno, Nevada

I thought I’d had better take the camera with me on my walk around Rancho San Rafael yesterday, before our Winter Weather Storm Watch would hit us (today). I wanted to get some “color” pics before the winds knocked off all the leaves. Seems I wasn’t the only one with that idea…lots of folks roaming around with cameras. 🙂

All taken on Sunday afternoon at Rancho San Rafael Park in NW Reno, next-door to the University of Nevada. The day was overcast off and on.

Saturday Rambles ~ 6 November 2010

Just a few rambles for tonight….

First off, as I stated on FB Friday morning….Jay Leno is an arse! SF Giants Brian Wilson, our awesome closer, brings the World Series trophy with him to his interview Thursday night…and the idiot took it from Brian then put it on the floor BEHIND his desk. First time I’ve ever seen Brian a bit flabbergasted! Should have waited for Conan to restart his show! Again…You, Jay Leno, are an ARSE!

The colors are very pretty in our area right now.

My sister and I took our lunches to Rancho San Rafael park on Friday and walked around to take pictures.

Mother Lode’s Marionberry pie is WONDERFUL!

152 Days until Opening Day 2011 at AT&T Park.

*********************

It’s going to be cooler and raining tomorrow…I have fresh chestnuts to roast! Bought a bag full at Ikeda’s in Foresthill (near Auburn), CA. I love that place.

*********************

The colors are also pretty up in the Sierra! I took a drive today to Apple Hill (Placerville, Ca area). Some pictures along Hwy 50 and 80.

Tuesday’s Rambles ~ 26 October 2010

First Baseball! 🙂

~ Tomorrow the World Series starts! GO GIANTS!!!!  Good Luck guys!

~ Still shaking my head about hearing Tim McCarver call Jeremy ‘AFLAC’ instead of Affeldt. Did he just say Aflac?! He’s a strange man.

~ Miss you Kruk & Kuip! More than you’ll ever know!

~ CSN Bay Area Sports Giants VideosI swear the best postgame interview was with Sergio Romo. He’s off on the right hand side (about 5 rows down)…between Freddy and Brian. That is one excited guy…haven’t seen a guy giggle like a little kid in quite a while. (10.23: NLCS Game 6 Postgame – Sergio Romo)

~ Started cutting out a new quilt.

Using Allison’s of Cluck.Cluck.Sew. All Patched Up pattern. I pulled out two Layered Cakes that I’ve had in my stash ~ Cotton Blossoms fabric by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.

*****************

~ I had to scrape the frost off of my car windows this morning! WOO HOO!

~ Bruce Willis still has it. John Malkovich is just plain crazy. Helen Mirren lovely, and badass, as always. Saw Red over the weekend. Loved it.

*****************

Some autumn leaves above the Truckee River.

This is one of my favorite condo buildings in downtown Reno…it’s right on the Truckee River across from Wingfield Park.

~ Sunday it rained and rained and rained…mostly horizontally, as the winds were very strong.

*****************

~ Picked up a few more Michael Perry books after reading Coop…started reading Population: 485 – Meeting your Neighbors One Siren at a Time. Also have Truck: A Love Story, Off Main Street: Barnstormers, Prophets & Gatemouth’s Gator, and Why They Killed Big Boy.
