Such a lovely day today! Sun is shining, it's warm enough to open all the windows. I enjoy days like this, I can hang out on the porch, listening to the chimes my mother bought me years ago. We all have/had them, Gram Gram, Mother, and me. They are the sounds of our past. I especially liked Gram Gram's chimes made of obsidion needles. Not much noise, but memories of camping at Lassen Creek take me back to my childhood. I was 7 in the picture above. I took my kids to Lassen back in 1999, not much had changed. I was glad!
