Rain! Please comeback soon….

We want rain…and we got it this past week. This is a picture of a bucket that I use to sweep up the dead leaves and the small ivy berries that drop from the fence that separates our homes. It had blown over in the wind, but it seems it’s an accurate way to measure the rain. There were about 4 inches of rainwater in that bucket.

(I’m sorry that I didn’t write this post on Thurs night. But I was having some issues regarding the paperwork that needed to be filled out, for a client who was writing an offer.)

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
