a little update.

Good morning. Just got back from my morning walk. A very nice 78 out this morning although a bit humid at 41%.  :-)
We had a bit of rain a few days ago. Not much at our end of the valley, but over an inch in the southern part of the valley. It seems typical of the rain here in Vegas. We've been here nearly a year now, and most storms seem to come up from the south and just clip the southern edge of the valley.
Here's a couple pics from the back yard.....
The new Crape Myrtle we planted a month before our trip is doing very well, and the Purple Spreading Lantana are filling out nicely. The Bougainvillea vine to the far left is blooming okay but not like I was expecting. I think next spring, I'll put it in a bigger pot and see if that helps.
The 2 Bells of Fire bushes are going gangbusters. I think I need to cut them back to help them fill in more. And here's a pic of a beautiful sunrise yesterday morning.
It certainly didn't show up in the pic, but the sun was glowing from behind the clouds. Looked real nice in person.   :-)
My laptop that died on our trip is back!  I finally ended up having to do a complete re-install of the operating system. That means everything that was on the puter is now gone. It's like a brand new out of the box puter. But that's okay as I only use it for burning DVDs and playing games and web surfing on trips. So I'm happy I was able to save it.
And we're enjoying the comfort and laziness of home after our long trip. I'm making a couple of changes to the back yard and I'll post some pics when I'm done. Nothing major just some continued tweaking.   :-)
And we're on the search for another suitcase. Our med size one Kinda fell apart during our trip and is repairable. It was nice because it wasn't huge and had two separate compartments. So far, we haven't seen anything like it, but we are going out again today to another group of stores.
So that's it for now!

  1. Hubby would Ebay a suitcase. I have found my camera deficient in shots like that. And the hues of purple as well.
    Glad your computer is okay. Like new is better than paying for new, especially if it is only a part time one.
