Busy, Busy

Today WAS a busy day.  We were up early to fly to Hayward but the sun isn’t rising as early as it used to. So we had to wait a bit before we could go.

First “appointment” was with eldest daughter for breakfast. After we left the noisy restaurant, we found a quiet city park where we had a great visit. She had other chores to tend to and we had other people to meet.

Next stop was at Dan’s parents house. Four of Dan’s cousins were visiting from Minnesota. Because of the distance, the California and   Minnesota cousins have only seen each other a handful of times. All three of Dan’s sisters and two of his brothers, as well as a nephew, were there too. It was a full house! The afternoon was filled with lots of chatter and laughter. There’s now talk of another family reunion sometime in the future.

Our final stop was to see how friends who have been displaced by the wildfires in Sonoma County are doing.  They are living with family in Newark for now. Their house has been spared as of today but they cannot go home yet.  These fires and winds are crazy!  So much loss, so much hardship. Sad.
