Over the River, Over the Hills to Meet the Cousins

We met at Judy’s in Walnut Creek and then drove over to Lafayette to Chow Market for a holiday lunch today.

I just love meeting with our family. Virginia and Butch (Robert's brother) drove down from Grass Valley to go to SF MOMA yesterday. They stayed overnight with Jess and Sylvia. Today, Butch invited us all to lunch.

Butch and Virginia were recently written up in the Los Angeles Times. (Three page article) They are embarking on a senior co-housing project called Wolf Creek Lodge. The Times said, “The complex is designed for adults, and there are no child-friendly amenities, although grandchildren are welcome … So far, the denizens of Wolf Creek Lodge are decidedly 21st century seniors. The common areas of their new home will include an espresso bar, a hot tub and a computer room.”

I like the sound of that complex! I would fit right in!
especially in the computer room, LOL.

Getting together with family is wonderful, I agree.

We opted out of moving into a seniors neighborhood with our move last April. We drove around them loads and really thought long and hard. We are not old, and they felt old and sterile. Didn't want to "get there" before our time.

I'm happy to see folks interested in "what's next" tho. We did decide on a home that would fit our later years tho, one floor, etc.

Happy New Year Christine!!

It sounds like you had a great day! Does Lafayette still have that neat quilt store? I always liked it better than the Walnut Creek one, but haven't been to either in the last few years.

Susan,
Yes, the Cotton Patch is still in Lafayette. Thimble Creek, which used to be in Walnut Creek, moved to Concord.
We did have a fun day.

That looks like a nice get-together.

I'm going to be watching projects like Wolf Creek with great interest.

Wolf Creek sounds ideal! Well, except for the prices....I would like to see a place that has small homes too that cost less.
