Yep, Shadows! We are anticipating the desert to be really beautiful this year. Hubby's sister and fiance and I are all going off-roading in the desert in a couple weeks to hopefully get some good photos.
I had my party yesterday for about 20 people. It was so funny cause they all drove up here from an hour and a half drive and all arrived at the same time! It was really great. All our friends and family live that far away from us and more. We see family a lot, but unfortunately not our friends as often as we should and they have been close to us as family for more than 20 years. Really special to have friends that long and even longer.
Rindy, it was snowing the whole time on your trip?! Sheesh! Does it ever stop snowing there?
Just wanted to let you all know that my dad passed away on Wednesday, the 30th. Since his wishes were to be cremated, we had a small memorial service for the immediate family on Saturday here in Kentucky after the cremation. We will be taking his ashes to Michigan for interment sometime in the next few weeks. At that time, we will have another service for family and friends.
I want to thank everyone for the many prayers over the past few months. They were much appreciated.
Many blessings to you & your family in this time of loss. Candles seem to be perpetually burning in my home these days & your father will have one.
CR: I drove to get my daughter-in-law on Thursday (to Silver City, NM & back) & the desert is alive with color! Carpets of goldpoppies are everywhere, lupine -- it was spectacular to see. You should be able to see some beautiful sights going off the beaten path, especially after such a wet winter. I cooked dinner on Friday for my son's 26th birthday. Between some pictures I had developed late (some with my mom) & the Pope's passing, reminding him of his grandmother, he had a few tears to shed. He recovered quickly this time & the day turned out great. Now if only the "right" property would turn up....
First of all, Bluegrasslady! I am so very very sorry about the loss of your dad. Your family has had such a difficult time. Thanks for letting us know. I hope you are ok. You all will be in my prayers. How is your husband doing?
Allen, we had Mexican food this weekend too! Lo Sombrero! Sorry you had to work. Will you get a day off this week then?
Hey, CoyoteMoon! So the desert where you were was really beautiful, eh? I bet cause you all get more rain than we do up here. Glad to hear about your son and his birthday. I hope you find some property soon. Hope you are doing well.
I am taking care of a sick hubby who has the crud. I hope I don't get it.......yuk. Other than that, all goes well. It was very windy here today.
Hey CR! Hope hubby is feeling better soon. I thought I had something but am now thinking it must be allergies. I thought the northern part of the state got lots more rain than we did here... flooding in Cottonwood & Sedona. I'll take it, however, as it really is beautiful here. Haven't checked out any of the canyons yet as we were still quite cold at night as of a week ago. No luck on the property as of yet after talking with a half dozen different agents. I really don't understand the difficulty as I see new stuff going in where I like all the time! Guess you've got to know someone to get in on those, but I'll keep trying!
Hey Coyotemoon! Property is hard to come by depending on where you look. Yes it is true that the northern part of the state got more rain that where I am. I am in Casa Grande, an hour between Phoenix and Tucson. Usually though, Tucson gets a lot more rain than we do where I live. We just had a party at my house this past Saturday for some of our friends in Tucson. It was really nice to see them all. Keep me posted on how things are going. Allergies are really bad here right now. Hubby is home sick again. He can't tell if they are allergies or a cold, but he feels miserable all over. Problem is is when he is home, I can't play my music as he doesn't like Celtic music. Plus with him not feeling well he wants the silence. Oh well. Take care!
JP! 200 posts! Yippee! Good for you! I see you got your Irish crown!
I mailed you a picture in your reg. email let me know if it works or what ever. I dearly love the picture. I am sorry your hubby is sick hope he gets well soon. Hope the evening is good for you. I should get off here and read. My brother loaned me the book, Converstations with God. It might be awhile before I get that read. Since it is Tartan did you where your plaid?
Here it is almost bedtime again, is anyone else having a problem with the time change?
Hey all!!! Congrats JP!!! My hero list just keeps getting longer and longer!!! LOL
I'm having serious problems with the time change, Rindy!! I can't seem to sleep before 1am!! And of course my kids come wake me about 5:30!!! Hopefully that goes away soon!!!
Sorry your husband is sick, Rose, and also that he doesn't like celtic music!! As I tell my husband....there's no accounting for taste!!! Hope he gets better soon, if for no other reason than that you'll get you music back!!LOL (oops....did I say that 'out loud'???)

Hubby is still sick and at home, but I am playing Highlander radio anyway! He is in bed asleep anyway! He has been going to work the past couple days, but coming home early as he is miserable with this cold he has. I don't know, it might really be allergies as the pollen count is very high here right now and something is bothering me too. I don't know if I am trying to get what he has or if it is just allergies.
Sonee, I am a big night owl. It is hard for me to go to sleep at night. Doggie woke me up again last night at 4 am to be fed! I am having to work on her on that one as I usually don't go to bed before 1 or 2 am myself!
Hey Rindy! No, I didn't wear any tartan as I don't have one. What about you? Haven't received your picture yet. Go CLANN AN DRUMMA who are playing in NY for Tartan Day! Wish I could be there, don't you Rindy?
Hope everyone is doing well and having good weather.
