In total Flat Susan will visit and stay with 36 people before she returns home. Yes, thirty six! That's a lot of travelling for such a tiny person. If you are new to this blog perhaps you should scroll to the very first post so you know more about who she is and what is happening with her.

Fall - in America

My guest for the past week has been Flat Susan, world traveler.  She arrived last Monday afternoon after a very long postage trip.
She was frightfully hungry, so I made us some fried eggs on toast, which she devoured her share, but did complain about having it with coffee.  LOL Flat Susan is a tea drinker!
Wednesday was the last photography class and FS wanted to tag along, here she is sitting on the edge of my camera case, ready to jump in.
Unfortunately, we had weather that day, very strange for us at this time of the year.  We drove up to the college in blowing dust, then it rained, then the dust blew again.  So I figured it was safer if FS didn't come out of the camera case.
Thursday I told FS to pack her bag we were going to head for Temecula first thing Friday morning.  She was very inquisitive about the trip, so I printed off a map so she could take a look, then it was get the Playhouse ready for the trip.  Temecula is about 3 hours south of where we live and is becoming well known for it's wineries. (although I didn't get a chance to check them out)
 We stayed at an RV park across the street from the Pechanga Casino, with a group of people that all own Heartland built RV trailers.  Beautiful park and very clean.  This property belongs to the casino and the casino belongs to the Pechanga Indians.
Saturday morning we took a walk and FS posed  at photo at the main gate.
Early in the morning we had a chance to be creative.  Here FS is giving water color painting a try.  She found the brush to be a wee bit too long.

Sunday we met up with our youngest son and his family at a HUGE pumpkin patch just out side of Escondido. 

 Danica and FS were from one pumpkin to the next in a blink of an eye.  You can't see FS cause she is trying to help Danica pick up that pumpkin....LOL

 This is a field of nothing but very large pumpkins
The liquid amber trees are starting to turn colors here in the mountains.
After the pumpkin patch it was back to the Playhouse and the trip home.  FS was exhausted and slept the whole way home. 
Next Friday we will be off to Lancaster for a BBQ competition so we are going to have a very busy week restocking the Playhouse and getting things ready to go.  FS isn't quite sure if she likes BBQ or not, guess we will be finding out.


  1. I used to live in Temecula about 10 years ago. The exit you take off of the I-15 for the casino but continue down for several miles. There were some new condos built back than. I also lived in Escondido. :-) In an apt. for a few years prior to Temecula. Looks like FS is seeing a bit of CA.

  2. I am so glad she got to see Temecula. This was one of the highlights of my trip last year - I just loved the town and it's lovely buildings.


Thank you for reading about my adventures, hope you come back and read more. I am always on the move.
