A week spent mostly at home! SNOW! Jacob and Allissa are in Austria visiting family!

 Well, time certainly flies! Today is President's Day in America. Basically it's a day off for state, county and federal workers. Used to love those days off! Now it's quite a awhile before there's another holiday for the workers of America. 

A beautiful sight this morning! 

Loved the clouds coming down our road today! 

Mainly we've been home for the last week. We made a trip to Walmart to get groceries and a few little trips to Raley's in town but that's about it. Baking day, a few fires at night, just enjoying being home. 

I did grandson Adam's taxes so he's a happy camper, getting money back. 

Mason asked me to come over for a few days in March while his parents take a quick trip to Vegas for their 20th anniversary. Things have opened up in Nevada, no masks required so they should enjoy. I'll look forward to spending a little time with him. 

Ken's done a few things here like getting firewood on the porch and getting a few things taken care of in the Mansion.  We took a quick trip to town in Nellie just to start her up and move the wheels :) 

Our fire last night in the garage while Ken barbecued some awesome pork steaks!

We had a little wind LOL.

A beautiful sunset to top off the night! 

Happy Hour!

We woke up to SNOW this morning so that a was a great way to start the day! It snowed until mid morning and then stopped, but as I'm writing this it's lightly snowing once again. Wouldn't want to live in it, but love what we get a few times of the year! 

Later this week we'll head to Reno as Ken has two eye doctor appointments a day apart. Made reservations at a motel in Carson as they are both early appointments. Other than that we'll be home until then. 

My cousin Lilli in Austria sent me these pictures this morning ๐Ÿ’– Allissa, Jacob's sweetie is overseas visiting and they'll be in Austria for the next week visiting my relatives. I know one happy young man!My cousins are thrilled to meet Allissa and see Jacob again ๐Ÿ’™ Thanks for sending Lilli and keep them coming! ๐Ÿ’•


Lilli said they spent the day in Modling..looks beautiful 

Looks like an awesome dinner out with family! ๐Ÿ’—

Allissa is getting to be quite the world traveler ๐Ÿ’–

Canadian Truckers TOO!!

Time for Happy Hour! Have a great evening!



  1. That last picture ..... THE BEST!!! Luckily so far we haven't had any snow YAY and not many sunsets BOO!!

  2. When it was windy in Wellton Jerry and I would sit just inside the garage like you were. Dave loves cold weather so he would sit outside. So happy for Jacob and Allissa. God bless and protect the truckers. Elva

    1. I don't mind cold weather but with the winds it's just too much. Heaven forbid we should stay in our nice cozy house LOL. I'm happy for Jacob and Allissa too :)

  3. Nope, can't agree about that snow! haha
    I thought it disappeared quickly, and it likely will, but then noticed the dates on your pictures. :)
    It is nice to get away but also nice to get home.♥ We're not ready to do that yet!
    Nice poster at the end and thank you for including Canada's truckers. ♥♥

  4. I knew you wouldn't like it haha. Of course, I thank Canada's truckers for getting it started! Things have got to change!
