Miscellaneous Day

After our usual walk I got out the sewing machine for the first time on this trip.  I wanted to make a good start on a project I am making for a gift and I did just that.  Just after lunch Michael took his painting supplies and headed out in the Jeep to find a spot out of the wind to paint.

Yesterday I made a beef stew and cornbread, today I made the caesar salad dressing—John and Brenda came for dinner after their trip to Parker today. 

Emmi has these little spots on her back that won’t heal—I’ve been cleansing the area with peroxide and today Michael said, “you are turning our black dog into a blond.”  Well, the thought never occurred to me that the peroxide coupled with the sun would bleach her hair—it isn’t blond by any stretch of the imagination but it sure is lighter than the rest of her!  She is just in style I guess!

Hole in the wall   On our walk through one of the dry washes we have found these openings in the rock cliffs—someone has gone to a lot of trouble to pile rock walls along these openings--Rocks piled These rocks at the base of this photograph are stacked very precisely—a lot of work for what??? 

Strange place for a saguaro We noticed this saguaro growing in an opening high on a cliff wall yesterday.Strange place for a saguaro2
