I Choose Left

When we moved to our home, one of the best things I liked about it was the location.  Now, when I am coming out of the neighborhood and turn left, I have a country road and my church.  If I turn right from my neighborhood, I have down town, and some restaurants and shopping.  If I go straight, I have the mall, more shopping, and my Starbucks.  :~)  I love the area because we are right in the middle of everything.  So, today I chose to turn left to get a bit of the country.



 
The pink cherry blossom trees are starting to show their flowers already.





Thank you for taking a ride in the country with me.

Sheri, You have the best where you live...so close to everything. So nice you do not have to be on the L.A. freeway. I do not know the name or number of it....but I have been on it with a million others at the same time. LOL. I can't believe you have cherry blossoms already. Enjoy that wonderful fragrance. Bless your heart. xoxo,Susie

Chanakya

It is so wonderful to witness that wherever you go you take your heart and your eyes with you. The eyes to perceive the beauty of the world, and the heart to remember all of us that walk with you but not seeing it.

Lovely Photos Dear Friend. You live in a lovely place and it will suit your life and spirit all those choices and decisions.

Here is all very gloomy. Winter has being long and bothersome this year. But I can wait for when Nature gets its revenge ahahahah. It will be L on allergies but never mind, bring it on ahahahah

Love you,
Teresa

Sounds like you are in the perfect location to to reflect, play or shop. ENJOY making each day special. Love the earthy photographs. The cherry blossoms and pretty horse are my favorites.

Many thanks for the wonderful ride we just took. Everything is so beautiful - I think you live in a perfect place. Now I would love it there. Enjoy all the wonders of Spring time we are having very early this year. I am praying for some rain.
Have a Happy week.
Hugs,

So beautiful, Sheri! Spring is on the way. I love the newness and the freshness of the season. You had me at the white fence! I grew up with a white fence around our property on the hill right near there, in Loomis. You can still see our former home from the freeway and all around. You have brought back such fond memories today. I always love going for a walk with you sweet friend!
xx, Heather

You live in the perfect place, Sheri! Lovely photos - so nice to see the cherry blossoms and farm animals. Love the hawk hiding in the branches, too. Hope your week is wonderful, my dear. xo Karen

Oh Sheri, I'd choose right or left around here too if there I could find a pasture with cows or horses. Sometimes the work force world is too harsh for me, and the first thing I want to do is run straight to nature. A lovely horse would be a great companion to pet, to cry to, to look at, to help me refocus.

You have cherry blossom already blooming? WOW, and here we are with ice storms that usually hit in March. I wonder what type of spring we'll have!

My dear friend, this was a beautiful post. KEEP ON WRITING THIS WAY! Anita

Patricia said...

You do live in a very pretty, and convenient, area Sheri. Those cherry blossoms are so pretty, and Spring is just around the corner. The horse and the bird are lovely signs of country too. You must enjoy walking in this place. Have a great week. xx

Tulla and Catie said...

Hi Sheri,
it is really a nice surrounding in which you are living. I also love nature very much but I also prefer near distance to shopping possibilities. It seems that you have chosen right :).
Hugs, Barbara

Deborah said...

Wow! So beautiful Sheri!
I too love the country so this would be right up my alley!
Theres no place like home huh?
:) And your surroundings sure speak home to me.
Blessings lovely lady xo

All my heart,
Deborah xoxo

Dewena said...

I would turn left too! Such pretty country, but can cherry blossoms truly be out already?

I bet there are some pretty scenes to see when you turn right too!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Lucky you! Such a beautiful and peaceful neighborhood. Thanks for the trip!
Hugs,
Patti

Ann said...

Oh that is such a beautiful place
so close to nature and your pics are stunning. The cherry blossoms are not yet in full bloom but its beauty is there already. Oh please do take a pic of that pretty tree when its in full bloom and share.
I say you should go left more often, or maybe go straight first and get your coffee fix and go left.

Happy Valentine's ♥

The cherry blossom trees are wonderful... nice neighborhood ;)

From The Heart said...

The pictures are beautiful! Makes me LONG for spring. I love the cherry blossoms..it is cold and still wintry around here.You live in a beautiful place!

Patty Patterson said...

Left looks like a pretty good choice. And I sure hope those cherries don't freeze. I's been warm, here, but I'm sure we will have some more cold weather. Mother nature seems to be a bit confused in recent years. Or - maybe she's just moody! LOL The weather is unpredictable.

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Sheri,
You have the very best of both worlds. I am just like you, I enjoy convenience to shopping and cultural activities, but I must have access to Nature-when I am able to spend time outside appreciating the beauty of the trees, sun, and sky or observing the miraculous movements of horses or cattle I am always most happy.
Love,
Jemma

Those are really great pics. Sometimes, I take the scenic route and drive by the farms in my area, too. I find that when I drive in that direction, I automatically slow down. There's something so peaceful about watching the animals graze.

Have a great weekend... :)

said...

beautiful! makes me want to be there right now! I'd turn left a lot if I were you haha :P

Sheri love these photos. Since I lived out in that part of CA, I have a good idea of the area and boy do I miss it at this time of year. We are still frozen solid and covered with snow! Love seeing the flowers already starting. Spring will get here eventually!

Memory of a Voyage said...

So nice to see the photos of the blossom Sherry! I remember they were blooming in our front yard when we moved in to our house in October.

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Beautiful photos Sheri - it sounds like you have the best of both worlds! We are lucky as like you we have countryside in one direction and beach in the other :-) x
