OMG!! The winds!!! The winds!!! Driving us all crazy and stoking the fires! We now have a large fire just north of Santa Fe and another fast moving fire near Los Alamos!!! I tell ya...it isn't pretty around here! Smokey and hot and windy...all great ingredients for forest fires. Over 30 homes have been destroyed in the Los Alamos fire and over 50,000 acres!! The entire town has been evacuated! We need your prayers and good thoughts for rain and the end of these howling winds!!
My grandson, Lee Jr., had his play on Saturday night. The kids wrote their own play and it was full of action. In fact, it was hard to photograph! So much going on and so much movement!! Yikes!! It was about a Princess, a Dragon and a Monkey! My grandson was the monkey! He did a great job. First, he came out as a monkey and then, due to a magical necklace, he was able to stand and talk and help the prince save the princess from the Dragon! Quite the adventure I do say!!!! Here are some pics!!

Lee Jr. and Georgia went home on Sunday and their sister, Emma stayed. The whole family came in on Friday night to see the play! Had quite the houseful!! Bodies everywhere!! Ha! But so fun to have everyone together! Emma needed a break, so she brought extra clothes and will be staying until July 10th!
Her sister, Lisa (my oldest granddaughter) will be coming on July 5th and staying until the 10th! We will have a blast. Here is a pic of Emma!
Isn't she gorgeous?!! She is 5' 9"! Quite the striking young lady. She is a cheerleader and a senior this year. She is the captain. Emma is helping me with the painting I have been working on. She hopes to major in art (sculpture) when she graduates.
Emma and I visited with Cheri and checked out her memorial garden she has started for Paul. She has some nice plants planted! But these winds and the high heat are sure taking their toll!!! Here are some of the plants!
I will be taking more pics of it as it progresses!
I finally finished my rock garden...well the first stages of it and I will be posting pics next week. Got the last of my plants in yesterday and didn't have a chance to take any photos!! Again, too hot and windy and the smoke is really knocking me down. My breathing has diminished quite a bit. It is affecting Emma too. She has asthma as well! So we are both dragging around here, just trying to breathe!! She is using her nebulizer at night and I am using oxygen and my inhalers!! Sheesh! This makes my walking almost impossible.
Today, I see the doctor about my MRI! I had that done last week on my knees to see what is going on. My poor knees!! Can't kneel down at all. Pain is too much! So, we will see what he says. Then Emma and I are going shopping and out to lunch! We will have fun...as long as the air quality is reasonable. We will see!!
I mean....a girl has to shop...Pier One has a sale!!! Ha!!
With all this smoke and haze...the sunrises and sunsets have been gorgeous! Here is a more subtle one.
