Additional Post Today

I just couldn’t resist posting these two photos of the puppies.  We were at the pet store and I’m surprised that the store clerks let me take pictures, but I just kept at it.  The first one is a Golden Retriever (near and dear to my heart because our first dog was a Golden named…

The Cheesecake Event – What to Choose!

Today you get two for the price of one.  My husband and I decided to “ditch school” and just go have some fun.  So it was off to one of our favorite restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory,  for some lunch and dessert.  Yeah, I know you’re probably asking “what happened to your low-carb eating plan?”  The…

My Revival

Today was one of those days that I said, “hmmm … a green tea frappuccino with a shot of raspberry sounds good.”  So I made a u-turn, pulled into Starbucks, pulled out the money and said, “Revive me!” 85 degrees today and supposed to be 92 tomorrow.  I am sooooooooooo not ready for the 90’s!!!! …

Wild Things

I took these photos from the side of the road on my way home.  The paw print is either from a coyote, a mountain lion, or a bobcat, unless there’s some other wild things roaming around the desert by our house.  I discovered the paw print as I was getting a couple of shots of…

Kissing A Toad in Tubac

Today I played hooky from everything and went to Tubac with my neighbor.  We shopped, had a wonderful lunch outdoors on the patio of a very good Mexican restaurant, walked a lot and took in all the sights.  Tubac is a mecca for artists, sculptors, musicians, native American jewelry, and some wonderful metal sculptures from…

I Don’t Know; I Just Like the Color

Today’s photo was taken outside the place where I have my photos printed.  How did I not notice this brilliant blue flower bush until today?  Guess I’m always in a hurry to get something done or be somewhere.  I have no idea what kind of flower this is but I think the color is so…

Us Women and Our Lineage

Today is my mother’s 89th birthday, so instead of posting a photo that I took today, I thought I would pay tribute to her by posting a photo of her, then me, then my daughter, and last but certainly not least, my granddaughter, the lovely Annabelle.  I took Mom some flowers today.  I think it’s…

An Uninvited Guest

Today’s post and photo is about the unwanted guest my husband found in the garage workroom.  Poor little thing … he or she was making a home out there and apparently couldn’t find its way out again.  I didn’t want to unfold it’s wings because I wasn’t sure how long ago it died and thought…

Santa Catalina Mountains

Today’s photo is of the Santa Catalina mountains – the view from the parking lot of the supermarket that I inhabit frequently.  Our fair city is surrounded on all four sides by mountain ranges, but these are my personal favorites.  The tallest peak is Mt. Lemmon, standing proud at a little over 9,000 feet.  I…

No-Show Movers and Roses

Today’s picture was taken with my camera phone on one of my trips to and fro (still moving the parents).  The movers didn’t show up as planned today; won’t be there until tomorrow so we had to do a lot of improvising.  My husband is such a trooper! We can’t remember being this tired.  Yikes! …

Moving and Random Totem

Wow! Today on my way to my Mom’s to pack her place up, I saw this totem out in the desert.  I have no idea who built it or how it got there, but it looks really heavy and yes, those are real rocks.  No, I didn’t push on it to see if it would…

Rest in Peace

I think this is a burial site for a German Shepherd.  The previous owners of this house were Shepherd breeders and in scouting around the property, we’ve come across a couple of these places.  This one has what’s left of an old wagon wheel at the top of the rocks.  Interesting.   Namaste.
