These pictures are from 2012 and 2013, before it got so dry here. We still have California poppies all over town right now, about a month earlier than when I took these in late April, early May.
The scenery on the other side of town is very different from that in the canyon.
My hubby is doing better. I take it as a good sign when I get a call from a physical therapist, instead of a surgeon. Hubby's friend, Tom, flew in from Denver yesterday. The first thing he wanted to do, was to go to the hospital and visit his friend.
This would have been a nice picture for Thursday's Fences (if you can se the fence, that is). I'm sorry I haven't participated, but I still have some good fence pictures to share later.
You know, I said to myself that I would not post another post until I had visited and commented on all your posts. You have been here and left comments and been so kind, so that's the least I could do. And it also cheers me up to see what's going on in everyone's lives. But since I got sick, I didn't manage to visit everyone, but I will keep going.
I don't want to own a laptop, an iPad, or smartphone (not that I can afford one right now, anyhow) because I don't want to get hooked on that part of modern life. I want freedom from devices for the rest of my life. I am very clear on that. I also switched to the cheapest DirecTV plan, once I realized I would be alone here for a while. And I hardly ever turn the thing on. I have my Kinldle because I love to read and it comes in handy for instant book purchases.
However, I must admit that a device I could hold in my lap would be a good thing right now. I could then connect with you so much easier, sitting on the couch or in bed, resting, while reading the latest from your blogs.
I hope spring is on the way to where you live and that you will have a nice rest of the day. Thanks for everything, your caring comments mean so much to me right now.
