My daughter Desi got two tickets to the circus so her and I went. I hadn't been in a long time over 30 years. We had a really good time mostly because I was with Desi. The only thing was the prices of everything what happen to the good old days when cotton candy came on a stick and a snow cone came in a paper cup. Just cause you dress it up with all kinds of fancy doesn't change what it is. In spite of that I did scum I bought one of each for us. I can't imagine what it like to have a big family and paying these prices. You'd need a stimulus package just to go and buy anything. It was fun seeing the acrobats I always loved them I could watch them all day. Desi liked the elephants. The cats reminded me of my house cats it's funny how much alike they are.
Until later.

Life in the desert

We moved here about 16 years ago not by my choice. We lived in a very big city for many years and recently moved outside of town to a small town. It's funny we went from a broken down trailer to a beautiful house that is 2 1/2 times bigger. Our children are grown and gone. At times I feel bad that we didn't have this nice a house when our kids were small. I like to think that this is Gods way of preparing us for better things. It takes some getting use to having all this space. In some ways it's scary in others I enjoy it. I have a room for all my crafts and a place for quilting frame.

Life here is not easy everyday I'm reminded of the fact that I hate it here. There are only 2 seasons here hot and hotter. The color brown is everywhere. I so miss color every color but brown. Maybe that's why my favorite color is all of them. I miss change to, have a winter again to be snowed in for days. That's my kind of wonderful. To have thunderstorms during the day not just at night. What would that be like. Someday I hope to feel what it's like to have a winter, to see colors, to bundle up in warm clothes what a wonderful day that will be. Until then I live my life with the dreams of someday being north of here.

4th of July

I thought with the 4th coming up I'd put this link out there it for a free pocket constitution.
We should all know what it says not what others tell us it says just like we should know our history. We have a wonderful country. You all have a great 4th as I know I will.
