a little catch-up

Good morning. Well, my absence doesn't mean I won the Mega Millions and disappeared.  I didn't.   :-)
I guess I just get busy and forget how much time has whizzed by since my last post.
Anyway, here goes......
Here's a pic from one of our daily walks...
I forget what they are called, but we get these strange cloud formations over the valley from time to time. They are caused by how the air comes over the mountains. Anyway, they are pretty freaky looking.
And here's a few things starting to flower in my back yard...

They are still pretty small and I'm anxiously awaiting for them to grow.   :-)
I also did a little craft project.
Wanted a little something extra on the stand below the TV.
Got a long 'pot', added some Styrofoam, covered that with a moss like material, and then stuck assorted fake succulents in it.
Simple, colorful, and no watering!
I also submitted an application to the ARC committee for the surveillance cameras and will go to the meeting tomorrow. They should be approved but you have to go through the formalities.
Had brunch yesterday at the Aliante Casino/Hotel just outside our community. Haven't had the buffet there before. It was really good! A very good selection and very tasty. And we get a mailing every month from them for a buy one get one, so for a $9 bill for both of us, we may be eating there more often. You just can't beat the price and selection. No wonder so many of our neighbors go to buffets. The only problem is I go there and see all this food and want to sample everything. I eat way too much. I'm going to have to try and restrain myself if we're going to eat there often or I'll look like the Pillsbury dough boy when I go back to Michigan this summer.  I have been walking 2-3 times a day, so that has been working very well, but not if I eat like I did yesterday too often.   :-)
And, we got a quote for the security film we want on the windows. We're going to have the sliders done first to make sure it looks good, then probably the rest of the house.
We haven't had any break-ins in our community since that couple was caught back in Jan. But it doesn't hurt to be a little proactive to make sure your not a viable target. And it'll be cheaper in the long run than having an alarm system.
Today, there's a birthday party for a neighbor. I'm taking fruit/Hostess Twinkies kebabs. I'll try to remember to take a pic of them when I make them later. Someone brought them to a camping trip potluck several years ago and they were good! Healthy fruit with a little sinful indulgence thrown in.   :-)
I think that's everything right now.
