Hello August!

 Have you also noticed how fast summer goes by, yet winter drags on forever?
This summer seems to be doing that.  I can't believe it's August already!

I've decided to spend as much time in Asti the month of August, and enjoy summer in all its glory in the country.
Even if the temperature climbs to 100 degrees!

After all, summer in San Francisco is like winter!
Mark Twain once said "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

So, Oscar and I will head north tomorrow for the week with son Alex and granddog Lupo.
We plan to do lots of reading, gardening, hiking and swimming.

Hello August!

Hello Asti!

Looking forward to tomatoes right off the vine, still warm from the sun.

 Swimming and sunbathing.

 Reading my book, "Barkskins by Annie Prouix.

Watching the sunrise.

Watching the sunset.

And watching the moon rise over the Mayacamas.

So if you want to find me in August, I'll be right here!

Pin It!

Funny that Mark Twain said that about SF. Was there a few weeks ago and it was really chilly... Had just got back from Alaska and SF was just as cold! LOL

I was there in July 2009 it was so cool and my HB said to me that's way Mark Twain said the cooler summer in SF .I remember we has to go shopping for winter clothes its a city by the Pacific bay is always cooler than other place you drive to Sausalito and the weather is different but I love SF and the state of California nice wether not humidity like its in Folrida
Enjoy your vacation relaxes and have nice wine

Wow. Hello August. Can I go. Have a wonderful holiday!

If I had that beautiful home and property, I'd be there too. How wonderful to sit and read with that gorgeous view. Happy Summer!

Just beautiful! I would spend as much time as possible there for sure. We have friends that have a second home in Yountville and they love August and September there. We've only visited them in spring, but are dying to visit them during crush season. We are headed to our home at the beach this weekend. We've been planning a wedding this summer and have not had as much opportunity to go as we normally do during the summer.

Such beauty.
As much as I love summer I am already looking forward to winter.

Hi Robyn L,
I can't remember where I found those cloches, but more than likely at TJ Maxx!

Delores, I am a long time reader and have lived your blog, I noticed you had same counter stools I have been considering and was wondering if you were happy with them? Did you find them on Joss and Main? Thank you! Becky

Hi Becky,
I'm not sure which counter stools you are talking about. The ones in Asti are from Big Daddy's Antiques, but I'm not sure they're available any more. Or are you talking about the linen ones in our SF home? I got them at One Kings Lane and I love them. Email me if you have any more questions. Thanks! ~Delores

Hi Delores, I was referring to the linen ones. I will look on One Kings Lane!
Thank you!

Oh this is so, so pretty Delores! I would be there as much as possible if I were you as well!

Love these photos - so gorgeous!
