OK this is gonna be one of those Blogs that is jam packed with This , That and the Other!! Seems like so much to say and so little time to say it. Sounds like I am going off to war doesn't it... well, almost.... Richard and I leave EARLY EARLY Saturday Morning to drive 12 hours up to my sisters house in Northern California to pack and load her up and move her back to Lake Havasu, AZ with us.... until she gets her own place close by. We are very excited that she is moving here...miss her like crazy. But last evening we did some figuring out and came up with stunning facts...in the 7 almost 8 years that we have lived in L.H. we have made 19 trips back to GV for visits with my Mom and Sister... '19' ... ZOWIE!!! That's a whole lot of 12 hour trips...LOL...so needless to say we are pleased as punch at the thought of her now being here and not there!! The car is pretty pleased as well. So we will be away from the computer for a week...OMG!!! I am sweating already...Richard is fine with it...it is me who is the Cyber Junkie! But the sketch book comes with me again...a Great Audio book popped into the CD player , and lots of Road Food! Snack City!! ROAD TRIP... !!!!
So as I will be away...I am throwing things one here left and right as I will miss doing my daily posts... sniff sniff.
The above pics are more blooms in our desert garden... The Flower is from the 'sharpest' 'meanest' cactus in our garden 'Opuntia Versicolor' It just scares people when they look at it...but it's flowers are incredibly beautiful. The lighter color pink is 'Opuntia Leptocaulis' a less vicious yet still 'ouchie' cactus. The third is our 'Bougainvillea' and Star Jasmine on our back patio ...both blooming like crazy right now ...the smell of Jasmine is so thick in the air...I love this time of the year...it only lasts about 3-4 weeks...and I will miss a week of it... Richard HATES the Bougainvillea as the little dry bracks fall off and blow everywhere (mainly into his shop) ...pounds of them!! OOPS!
OK...still lots to say...will post another post...hey, that's right , I can post more than one a day...WOW, just realized that...hee hee hee!!!
