Hi everyone,

How are you today? I'm doing well. Today my father and I went shopping at Costco. Wow, what an experience ;) :) If you read my previous post from yesterday, my dad had an angiogram last Tuesday. He's fine, thankfully. My dad pick up his prescriptions at Costco because he got the best price there. Needless to say it was just a gorgeous day .  I love driving by the Hillcrest Orchard/Roxy Ann Winery. Here are some photos I took as I drove past. It's just such a beautiful, perfect day. This is what's on my mind today. I'm linking up with Rhonda over at Down to Earth.

Rhonda's blog is a really lovely place to visit. That's the news from Oregon today. Extra love and hugs, Heather

Hi Heather;
I had the same issue with my followers disappearing last week. They'll show back up - mine did after awhile.

The Winery is GORGEOUS! Thanks for sharing the drive and I'm glad your Dad is doing well.

Hi Becky,
Thanks for your encouraging words :) :) I'm feel less stressed about it now :) :) The winery is beautiful. There are actually quite a few wineries in the Southern Oregon area. People come from all over to tour this area. I don't drink, so I don't know...but the ones that do say we have lovely wines here :) :)

have a great day. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

What beautiful Oregon scenery! Thanks for sharing. I have been to Oregon once (Portland). Something that stood out for me was the rose garden. You asked what a volunteer plant is. It's something that just comes up on its own - from dropped seeds from the mother plant, or perhaps transported by a bird or other animal. Have a great week!
Blessings, Beth

Heather, I am so jealous, in a good way, ~smile~what a beautiful place you live, I so love the mountains, we attended a wedding Saturday at a local winery, and seeing those grape vines all lined up and filled with small grapes was such a treat.
Thank you for coming by and for your sweet comment.

What beautiful country you live in Heather.

I've never been to Oregon but I've seen northern California and the hills have the same shape! Lovely country you have there.

Lovely landscapes! Hope your Dad feels much better now as my Dad has to have scheduled angiograms every couple of years as he's had a bypass and he says they're uncomfortable. I think it's the not eating the night before that he hates!

You are truly blessed to be surrounded by so much of God's beauty! I'm sure those rolling hills are beautiful in every season.
