I'm truly sorry for not getting back to each of you over the past week. We traveled out to Nevada to visit our family and I didn't even look at the computer nor my blog the whole time I was gone.
It was so lovely to visit with our family -- almost all of them at the same time. Truly a magical, fun filled week.
Each day I was surrounded by my beloved desert. Beautiful deep blue skies above me. Mountains in the background (once even sprinkled with snow).
Sunshine that kept us warm, as only the sun can do - but never too warm.
We looked for water everywhere we went because it is in such scarce quantity. It was always a treat to see a stream running or ripples on a pond.
It was a lovely time-out-of-time trip.
