Susi invited me for a BBQ in her newly arranged backyard last weekend and we had some serious catching up to do. I think we hadn’t physically seen each other since March [correct me if I am wrong] when I came out to see her for her wedding reception. Time really does fly these days… it’s already the end of June, people!
First she gave me a tour of the house – really, really cute [Susi, you should seriously post some pictures from the interior some time] – and I got to meet the newest addition to the family, Apple. What a sweetie. I was about to put her in my purse and steal her [just kidding].
I brought my new camera and we sat down in the living room and Susi, who has become a DSLR veteran by now, gave me some hands-on instructions on how to go about learning the settings. Valuable advice.
Then we moved to the backyard, munched on some raw vegetables with yummy dill dipp and waited for the other BBQ guests to arrive.
It was really nice sitting outside in the sun, the food was absolutely delicious and we had a great time! :)
I stayed until 6 p.m. andÂ then made my way back home through a big wall of smoke… Northern California is burning. Seriously. Over 8000Â “dryÂ lightning” strikes wereÂ unleashed byÂ an electrical storm andÂ set more than 800 wildfires around Northern California. Pretty crazy.Â But besides the big pall of smoke that is hanging over our heads, we’re ok.
