Ash Meadows - beauty + excitement
Thursday, May 05, 2011      3 comments

I took my sister to visit Ash Meadows Wildlife Refuge earlier this week - because it was a weekday and the Southern Nevada weather is getting pretty warm, there really weren't many people there at all so it was nice to 'have the place to ourselv... Read more

Wednesday, May 04, 2011      4 comments

There's a tiny little town just outside Death Valley called Amargosa Valley and it has a very nice [but small] casino/hotel called Longstreet - if you blink while driving through, you might not even see the town or casino but my [weird] DH found... Read more

I took my sister into Red Rock Canyon, just outside Las Vegas, on Sunday 5/1 - it was her first time there and she was very impressed - heck, who wouldn't be? It's a really nice place!! As mentioned yesterday, we spent a good deal of our ti... Read more
Exciting Sunday
Monday, May 02, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday afternoon, I took my sister and the dogs out for a Sunday drive - we drove over to Las Vegas, which she hadn't seen since the 1970s - needless to say, things have changed a little since then, haha! Because we had the dogs with us, we d... Read more
May Day - Morning Walk in Pahrump, NV
Sunday, May 01, 2011      3 comments

The dogs and I went out for a very nice walk this morning, something like about 3-1/2 miles or so - we walked through our complex and then headed over to walk through an abandoned golf course. The economy has hit this area really hard and the go... Read more
Beautiful Saturday
Saturday, April 30, 2011      7 comments

I 'escaped' out to the desert for a few days with my sister and the dogs - it was a long drive yesterday and I was pretty tired last night but I'm glad we came. The weather is nice, although somewhat windy, and I've been able to get some things ... Read more
Hiking on a Secret Trail!!
Friday, April 29, 2011      8 comments

After living in this city for many years, I discovered a trail I didn't know existed along the Santiago Creek near my home - it's not a marked trail and wasn't really 'obvious' either so I have been calling it my Secret Trail and have hiked ther... Read more
Backyard and patio farming
Wednesday, April 27, 2011      3 comments

I started 'farming' last year and it was so much fun, I'm doing it again. If you could see how small my planting area is, you'd laugh but it's really amazing how much stuff I can grow in this tiny little yard and patio, much of which doesn't get... Read more
Lassie Come Home
Sunday, April 24, 2011      1 comments

Yes, it's an old, old, OLD movie - so old that Elizabeth Taylor was a little girl who didn't even get top billing in the movie - but I'm so glad I had a chance to watch Lassie Come Home on TV this afternoon and as usual, it wowed me all over aga... Read more
Then and now
Thursday, April 21, 2011      5 comments

I spent some time with my sister recently and some of what we talked about involved our childhoods and/or previous times in our lives. It sort-of fit in with other 'then and now' thinking I'd been doing since I had a 'milestone' birthday this ye... Read more
For now and Yet.....
Saturday, April 09, 2011      3 comments

Although it may sound crazy to have 'voices' in my head, I find that 'self talk' helps me stay focused and motivated - but it can also be my biggest saboteur if my 'self talk' leads me in the wrong direction. It's almost like the classic discuss... Read more
Silly dogs
Monday, April 04, 2011      5 comments

I get a lot of entertainment from my pets - in fact, I have a hard time understanding how anyone can get through life without 4-legged furry clowns - but that's another matter. It can go overboard the other way, too, so I think they are only 'en... Read more
My smokefree life
Sunday, April 03, 2011      5 comments

Once upon a time, many [MANY] years ago, I was a smoker averaging 2 packs a day. I tried to quit over and over but it would only last for a few hours up to a few months and then I would pick up another cigarette and be right back into the habit ... Read more
A new chapter
Thursday, March 31, 2011      4 comments

Tomorrow is the first day of April, which has traditionally been a month when I seem to be successful making big changes in my life in the past. March has also always bee the start of things and this past month has been a 'big one' for me - I ca... Read more
Must be Spring!!
Tuesday, March 22, 2011      3 comments

There's just something about Spring that makes me want to clean, organize and de-clutter things - I get the urge to go through things, 'relocate' items that no longer have a purpose in my life - it's also a time when I seem to reflect a lot, hav... Read more
