Random Tuesday....Howling winds, martinis and vacations!!

As you can see from the pic above....the barn roof has been peeled back!!  Yikes!!  The winds were so high...approx. 65 MPH!  Gusting upwards from there!!  Not only did several houses and barns suffer damage, my friend Cheri lost her carport!!

What a mess around town!!  And power went out for 100's of homes.  Not me though, thank God!!  Anywho...,it has been rough!!  Today temps are cold, cold, cold.  Below freezing!!  Just two days ago it was 71!!!  Weird!!  We actually lost 1/3 of our firewood!!!!!  Amazing!!

Pampered myself last Thursday!  My nail tech is back from her maternity leave and boy have I missed her.  And so did my nails and  feet!!!  She prettified me and now I am all set to look stunning for my vacation.
Notice I said "my vacation"?  Dr. John has a conference in Oakland, CA.  He has to work while I get to play!!  Love it!!  Taking my laptop, my walking shoes, my camera and my cell phone.  What else does a girl need??  Seriously!!!

Been decorating my home for spring/Easter and I took some pics along the way....

See?  I am all ready for the Easter Bunny!!!!

Worked on my taxes over the weekend!!  Woot!!  Not!!!  But it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.
I actually made money last year!!  As an artist...that is a miraculous occurrence.  Ha!!  I completed this task and handed them over to Dr. John.  Now it is up to him and Turbo Tax to combine them all together.  Of course, I always hope for cash back!!  We shall see!!

Early morning smiles for you....

Been watching early season baseball lately...Dr. John is a fan for sure and I have become one.  Go Indians!!
I know...feel sorry for us.  Anyway, I have a question.  Why is it that the players have to, on a regular basis, grab their crotch??  Are they checking to make sure it is still there?  Jock itch?  I mean, seriously.  It is annoying. 

I have pretty much recovered from surgery and the flu bug..but have yet to get back to walking.  Reason...ummmmmmm...winds, darkness, crazy loose dog..,.,.and just general laziness.  Ha!!  Just saying!!

That is it from New Mexico!!  Remember to check out Stacy at Stacy Uncorked and see what other Randomizers are doing!!  Always some fun times.    Also go over and help out  Keely at The UnMom...she is always up to her elbows in Zombies and could use the support,  Remind her about Random Tuesday and how groups sticking together can defeat that undead horde.

Have a magical and blessed day
Hugging you

What a variety of things you mentioned!
The storm did some terrible damage by the looks of it. Must have been really scary.

Ack that's a lot of storm damage. I hope you're safe and sound.

Those are some fancy nails you're sporting. Have a fun and safe trip.

Pretty nails!! I haven't had mine done in 18 months!!! I used to go in every week or so - miss it!

Love the decorations! Ours are still packed up and will stay that way until we're in a bigger place. I'm thinking Bella & I will have to craft something...SOON!

My taxes were done in January and I'm glad it's all done with for another year! Great job on making some money on your artwork!!!

LOL!!! Love those last thoughts on the ball players checking to see that the "family" is intact!! ;) Men in sports are funny creatures!

Glad you did not lose power and sorry to hear about the cold weather but you'll find it lovely when you come to Oakland =-)

Interesting. I've seen "Easter trees" (or whatever they are called) outside before, but I've never known someone who had an indoor one. Is it actually quite popular, but I just don't hang with the right folks? :-)
