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!

Wizard of Oz and a raspberry bush

Funny how  the exact thing I wrote about yesterday on all of the things around you that you just may be to busy to notice happened to me this morning. The wind started whipping up and the skies were getting dark, so camera in hand, I ventured back out to the mill pond with "bird house intentions" once again. A lone tree I am destined on this walk to see was exceptionally breathtaking to me today and I had to stop and take a picture of  its spendor in front of the darkening looming sky approaching.

Ever since I was a little girl I would call weather like this Wizard of Oz weather, as that is what the whipping winds and leaves spinning up off the ground reminds me of.

 
As I move the camera to the left you can see over the mill pond how the clouds are just starting to get over our mountains.

 
But this was what I was referring to above. I actually passed this, my raspberry  bush walking out towards the mill pond, for the yet un-taken bird house pictures. 

 
The sun is blue behind this bush which is finding it's way up our utility pole. The colors all so vibrant. Like two different worlds all in a couple steps. Yet just a 180 degrees from the darkness of the impending storm.
Did I miss this beauty just two days ago? I bet I did!

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!
