A nice trip!!

Quincy Ca is a nice town in the Sierras. This Thursday starts the High Sierra Festival which thousands of people descend to the town for the music. It’s a great boost to the economy which this town really needs. It’s quite  a depressed economy but a lovely place to live.

There’s lots of retirees, throwbacks of the 60’s, survivalists(probably ) and whoever else likes to be somewhat isolated.  We had thought of moving here but it’s too isolated for me and medical needs would be too far away. Anyway, we are leaving so we’ll miss the hordes of people and germs.

Ada’s of Quincy is a wonderful place to stay with little cottages. We were in Hopsings and it was beautiful. We cooked a nice dinner( salmon, couscous, and fresh corn on the cob. Yummy and nice.  Breakfast was homemade yogurt and granola with peaches.  My yogurt had great flavor but was just a little watery.  I like the crockpot method but I think the temperature needed to be a little warmer. I will make some more maybe today.

Normally this would be my week off Velcade but now it’s the beginning of being off for a while. My first labs (CBC,CMP) have come back great. So I’m very pleased. I should get my Light chains today or tomorrow. We shall see.

Then we’re heading down to Truckee for B to work and check out 2 rescue dogs my daughter is interested in adopting.  They are older border collies. I ‘m not too sure and would rather not have dogs at this point, but they’d be hers,not mine. The story is sad and compelling that these we’re working border collies and the rancher was going to shoot them since they’d gotten too old. So a neighbor rescued them.  And they are at a no-kill shelter at least. So we will stop and look. Then home by @ 2pm since it’s still hovering around a 100 degrees.

The rest of the week is open not sure what I’ll do.  I do need to work on our schedule for our Tahoe camping trip as someone needs to be home to deal with chickens and cats and the 2 cockatiels.
