A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!


The leaves, they are a leaving! Day 51

Just out behind my house I thought I would go take a walk. Perhaps one of my most "special places here in Lassen County. It helps that it is so close but what I love about it is the rawness I see. For today's picture I thought I would share the ending to our beautiful October. The trees leaves are pretty much now fallen and I blame that on the winds. It has been an unusually windy month it seems and the lack of wonderfully full colored leaves shows it. It is sad for me to see. That big hand is slapping me on the face of my reality that winter is on her way.
This is what happened last year when it snowed before the trees leaves were gone. It busts all the branches and does not make for real pretty tree. Ahhh Mother Nature!
Whether it is true or not I am not sure, but word has it that this sign was put up by a neighbor that does not even own this property. Like I said I can not confirm this, but it may very well be worth looking into!

Howdy Hi!
I would love to hear what you have to say. Why not leave me a comment?

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
