Random Tuesday....Fires!! They be burning!!


Don’t mind me!  I am just lashed to this tree!  AGAIN!!  But this time with goggles and a dust mask!!!!  With all the fires burning in Arizona and New Mexico…the air quality here sucks big time!  Can you say, “THICK SMOKE EVERYWHERE”!!!  And the winds continue….50 to 60 MPH!  It has been tough around here; but I am a trouper…I have rallied and continue…nothing will deter me from my Randomness…NOTHING!!

                                          This is the sun covered with the dust cloud!!

One problem with this dust cloud and wind; I have asthma!  So breathing, though a top priority, has become a little difficult!  Ha!  I have been relegated to being inside the house.  So walking has been curtailed yet once again.  ACK!!!  So I hope this all let’s up soon. 

We have a couple of visitors to our home.  Georgia Rose, 15; and Lee Jr., 12!!  Our two youngest grandchildren.  They will be with us for the month of June!  Fun things planned for sure.  Lee Jr. is attending the East Mountain Youth Theatre Camp here near our home.  And Georgia Rose will be my assistant for three weeks and then she will be attending sewing classes at Ann Silva’s Bernina Sewing Center! 

No pics of Georgia yet….ya know how that is.  We have to look just right.  So I will post some next week.  Some glamour shots for sure!!!  Ha!

Started working on my landscaping in the front of the house!  So exciting!  I hired a Bobcat with operator for 3 hours and he did some earth moving for me.  I received two loads of topsoil and it is nice and rich.  Here are a couple of pics before he started working…

As you can see…work is definitely needed.  I will show you more pics of what he did and what I will be doing with it next week!!  I know!  I am such a tease!!!  Ha!!

Went out to lunch with my friends, Cheri and Jodi…Hi girls….last week!  We went to Chili’s and they had a Margarita special going on.  Aww!  Gee!!  Just had to try it you know!  I went with the Pomegranate and Cheri went with the Patrone!!  Yummy!  Jodi stuck with a non-alcoholic since she had to go to work right afterwards.  She owns Elite Electrolysis in Albuquerque.   You go girl!!!   

 With all the smoke...the sunsets have been spectacular!!


Now that we skipped spring and flew right into summer...sheesh...I decorated the tree and the mantle accordingly... 

The new art piece has begun!!  And the colors are fabulous!  I will share the beginnings later this week.  Yes, I know!  I am teasing again!!

Well, enough from me!!  I have Randomized your heads off!! You must check out Stacy at Stacy Uncorked.  Lot of Randomizing has been occurring there for sure!!  And since Keely is still abandoning on break...we must carry the banner high and keep a stiff upper lip and all!  Go on!!  Go and visit!  You know you want too!!

It has been so good chatting with you all!!  Please consider doing your own Randomizing and link up!  Tis fun for sure!!

Have a magical and blessed day!
Hugging you

I was going to check in to see if you've started the Patriotic theme on your tree yet. Then I see that beautiful flower decor. Guess Patriotic will start in July? Hugs, doll.

Sueann, hope you get cleaner air soon. It must be awful for you to go through this and such a shame about the trees.
Loving the mosiac iron small fancy gates. I bet this piece of garden is going to look awsome.
