Tuesday Ken and I took the day and headed to Carson City to get a few things done. I thought i'd do a little clothes shopping for the trip, and that's exactly what I did...two t shirts..I hate shopping anymore, it seems either clothes are geared for the young (and I do mean young) or the old ladies...and I don't even think they would like some of the clothes! Why can't they just make simple???....oh well i'll try again next week sometime...
It's been cold and rainy...I think over the last few days we've gotten more rain than we've ever had since we've been in Nevada...we had some really good strong downpours...lightning, thunder, wind...it's been something else. There's snow on the mountains..really pretty!
Today it's in the 70's so it's nice.
We've been home the rest of the week with not alot happening. Ken built a little portable wind block for the garden which looks really nice! Once the plants are established, we probably won't need it anymore, but it will sure help the little plants! My marigolds on the back porch are really looking happy and blooming. Love them...
It's Memorial Day weekend and we'll be heading over the hill to Ca to visit with our friend KC and help celebrate his son Cade's 16th birthday. The 24th is also Russell and Lori's 17th wedding anniversary!! Hard to believe, as it doesn't seem that long ago when Russell was in the Marines and the kids were starting their life together! Looks like they'll be in Reno for the weekend with the kids...apparently there's some kind of basketball tournament up there..
We'll come home Monday and then head for Winnemucca for a few days...Ken needs a prescription refilled and probably some maintenance on the property..
We've got a family of quails...about 15 babies!! They are so cute..love the way dad quail watches over his little brood and mom has her hands full...There's always one that seems not to listen to mom..so fun to watch!! I tried to get pics this morning of them but they blend so perfectly in the desert couldn't see them...
Let's not forget the real reason behind Memorial Day...Thank You to all who have served and are serving to keep our country free!
