Friday March 26 we took a road trip to look at the redbud along highway 16 (the road in Capay valley.  The timing was perfect as the buds were just peaking out from their winter's rest.  We stopped for lunch at the Road Trip cafe in Capay and were reminded why we should wait for the Burger Barn in Esparto.  The food was good and the wait staff was friendly - but the kitchen was VERY slow (45 minutes to cook a hamburger)  There were only three tables with people and every one (kind of) complained about the slow kitchen.






As it happens each year (for as long as I can remember) March 21st is my birthday.  This year I enjoyed supper in Arbuckle with mom, dad and Janine.  Just a quiet family dinner.  Linda cooked roast beef, mashed potatoes and some delicious greens but couldn't come because she wasn't feeling well (turns out she was getting a cold). 

It was great 65th birthday!

March 11th marked the end of our Hawaii saga.  The hospital released mom to join us at the condo but even though her spirits were high she still couldn't eat.  After a useless meeting with her doctor we decided the best chance for recovery was to escape the island as soon as possible.  We bought our tickets and tried to make the best of our last days in Hawaii by going to the beach and lazing on the patio.  Mornings were fun as we all checked our computers for the news of the day.




We arrived in California Thursday evening and mom went to her own doctor Friday.  The difference was amazing.  Her doctor listened!  He took her off all the meds the Hawaii doctor insisted she take (and were causing her so much discomfort).  Within a day mom was feeling much better and eatting like she should.
