Happy Birthday, Simon!

Last Saturday we celebrated John's brother's 63rd birthday.  Simon had never been to Chili's so we took him there for lunch.  We had a great time - great food, service, and we had a lot of laughs.  We always enjoy our time with Simon.

We LOVE Rain!


For the first time since we moved here, April 1, 2007, we have had a lot of rain in the summer. Just this last week it has rained, hard and long, three times.  The high desert is totally in bloom; instead of the usual beiges and browns, we have greens and blue greens and desert flowers are blossoming in oranges, whites, and purples.  Tome Hill, which is 5 minutes from us, is now green - just in the last week; we have never seen it green before.  Very exciting and beautiful.

Last Friday Blog

Hi All,

Just wanted to let you know that this will be the last time I post
on a Friday.
My life, HaHa, is not nearly interesting enough to post twice
a week.
So, I decided that I will post every Monday - just in case something
interesting happened over the weekend - right, sure.

Anyway - have a super weekend!!!

Lovely Roxie


Such a lovely, sweet, talented young lady.  I can hardly believe that she is 13 years old.  Just seems like yesterday that she was born and we held her tiny little self.  She has an amazing, delicate voice - will she do something with that voice one day???? We love and miss her very much.

Suggestions, Anyone?






I have never worked anywhere, and I have worked in corporate when I was a young one, where suggestion boxes worked.  Usually, people wrote things to criticize others in the business - more of a 'tattletale' kind of thing happened.  Most businesses don't really want to know what you have to say - with exceptions, of course.

Have a wonderful, fun weekend!!!!

Early Happy Birthday, Marcelle!!!


We had such a wonderful visit with Misha and Marcelle for four days - it was sad to see them go.  Misha and I went and had a manicure (Misha) and pedicure (me) together.  We had a really good time and laughed a lot together - it really felt good.  Friday we celebrated Marcelle's 5th birthday (really September 5) with lots of gifts (two of which were Frozen fun stuff), a great dinner of Pop's wonderful chicken strips that are crispy and succulent at the same time and.... the above ice cream cake.  Marcelle LOVES chocolate so it was a chocolate cake, ice cream, icing, and whipped cream puffs.  It was decorated with Frozen and added to by Marcelle with a clown, balloons, etc...  We all had a great time.  Pop, Uncle Simon, and Marcelle went to Home Depot on Saturday where Marcelle made a birthday present for her dad - lots of hammering and painting and, in one little boy's case - eating of paint - Lol!!!  We then enjoyed a nice pizza and birthday cake lunch with Uncle Simon at home. We love and miss them so much - how sweet to have them here with us for a few days.
