Michael planned for us to go hiking today. We weren't giving the kids a choice THIS week. Then we remembered, I've been in bed all week. Maybe a long hike in screaming heat wasn't the best plan. We settled on driving to Nevada City - a spot we've wanted to check out - instead. We asked the kids if they were coming or staying. We'd have been perfectly happy for it to be a date day. They wanted to come.
We told ourselves it was "less hot" in Nevada City - but I'm not 100% sure that is true. We enjoyed strolling down the Historic District. The buildings are beautiful.

Nolan and I.
There were MANY Buddha Shops - which surprised me. Grass Valley had more artsy fartsy things to buy - like the really cool sand art/frame I still think about. However, we DID manage to buy two things..... In an antique shop run by a WW2 vet (a very old gentleman who I enjoyed talking with while the others tromped around).....
No, I don't collect Depression Glass - yet. I did sort of say I wasn't starting a new collection - these were just pretty. I had it in mind that I needed to be on the lookout for a sugar and creamer. These turn out to be vintage Jeannette Glass - Cherry Blossom Pattern and from what a quick Google search shows I got a great deal. They were out with the other fancy dishes. They were on a shelf marked "Private" - down a hallway. I told the gentleman I loved them and he said, "They're for sale." I hoped I was getting a good deal but figured I wanted some Depression Glass and these will remind me of our conversation AND our family day in Nevada City.
I remembered later, I was on the lookout for a creamer for the CHAPEL - I believe I'll keep looking and keep this.
It was a hot day. We spent a couple of hours walking up and down streets......we ended our trip with a visit to the Ice Cream Parlor....even though today is NOT Sunday.
