A Quick Trip

For the past four days we have been in the place where these things grow and the summer day temperatures are regularly well over 100 degrees. It's a place where the tree leaves are tiny, the trunks are green, the grass is nonexistent, and the sunset skies are truly deep turquoise.



We have been driving between Phoenix and Los Angeles. It was a quick and unexpected trip and we are tired. But the nice thing about it is that the New Boy and his mama are here with us.

I was wondering where you were. Enjoy that little one and I hope to see some update photos of him soon. He must have changed since the last ones. I'm wondering...as always.

Have a restful weekend enjoying your boy and big girl!! We are off in the bus! LilliAnne says, "my bus!" Zoey, the dog, will be our protector until the men arrive.

What unusual scenery my English eyes are seeing! Beautiful mutedtones apart from that sky!

Hope you're having a great family time.

I hope that everything's all right, and that you survived that desert drive without too much dehydration!

I've heard that the desert is a very interesting place. Someday I hope to visit it.

Enjoy your time with your new grandbaby!

Stay cool! It is always fun to take road trips (but tiring!).

That is some beautiful sky.. You really must pick out some photos for the next fair... Your knitting should win prizes and I think your photos will too!

Enjoy the New Boy and his mama!

Happy Belated Anniversary to you! Our 30th anniversary was Tuesday and we just got back from a five day road trip. I am working on my posts so I can share photos and stories! Lots to tell! We decided that the only gift we each wanted was the gift of time from each other - and we certainly did enjoy the time we had over the past five days - and over the past thirty years. Safe travels!

Glad you could get away.
Isn't if fun having that little one?
I can imagine you are tired...I am really tired also but I don't know from what?
Have a wonderful weekend.

The desert in summer...I feel limp just thinking about the heat--LOL! So glad you had a great trip away...and what a change of scene the desert must have been. Happy weekend settling in home again :o) ((HUGS))

Hey are those creosote trees? It certainly looks dry out there. Enjoy your time together!
