The Serene evening

  This weekend was pretty nice, I did a little relaxing, a little sleeping in and a bit of outdoor fun time, which I will share tomorrow. One thing I do love about Arizona is that no matter what direction you're facing, you are sure to see a mountain in your view.  I took a... Continue Reading →



  I had a different idea of what I was going to write today, but when I saw the daily word prompt I immediately thought of our trip to the Hoover Dam.  Water has always been a calming instrument for me, the soothing sounds of the water coming out from its far journey in the... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Trasformation

Temporarily passing by.

  Clouds are temporary, they are never viewed in the same way each day.  It's a lot like life, each day brings up a new challenge for us all to face.  The choices we make may seem just about the now, but they usually affect us somehow in the long run.  I've had a really... Continue Reading →

I spy with my eye: Rounded.

For today's weekly photo challenge I decided to comb the city for rounded items that caught my eye.  Let me tell you there were many things that actually caught my eye but here are just a few that stood out to me. Every day on the way home we would pass this park and I kept... Continue Reading →

Expecting soon…

Last weekend we celebrated my niece who is expecting her first child.  My sister-in-law had a complete vision of how she wanted the party to look.  She selected an under the sea theme full of coral, teal, and tan colors.  We had the party in the backyard and rented a tent, table, and chairs to accommodate...

Weekly Photo Challenge:Glow

In the summer we light fires for grilling in the backyard or in the park.  In the winter we may light a fire at a campsite for smores, or if you have a fireplace inside the home. Whenever I see fire there is always a mystical glow about it.  Although I don't light fires myself... Continue Reading →
