Headed out Hwy 50, pretty isn't it?

Arriving at Cave Lake, surprised at the lack of snow here...

Still pretty...

Tree out the windshield, cute....

Heading back down Cave Lake Road towards home...

So pretty out here!

Almost back to Hwy 50...

Love the clouds in this one...

Back on Hwy 50 headed to Ely...

Ok, I like these clouds too!

This one almost looks like an erupting volcano, don't you think?

God Bless Our Vets....


Well, it's been a busy couple of weeks since arriving in Ely. Mom saves up a list of 'honey-do's' for us while we're gone for the summer so we tackle them as soon as we get in. And, while in Oregon we purchased a new desktop computer for Mom and of course it takes a while to get it all set up & loaded with favorites, email program, browser etc. Mom's been running XP for several years, so Windows 7 will take a bit of getting used to. But she's catching on pretty quickly. I love the fact that she is on the computer several hours a day. Keeps her mind 'working'. She's pretty darn good at it too!

I too have a new laptop. My old one was just too small and was getting tired. I purchased a new HP laptop with a larger 17 inch screen. And a faster processor, better audio & way more features. I've been running Vista for the past few years so it's a bit different with Windows 7 for me as well. I know, Windows 8 was released just a week after purchasing this laptop, but I hate dealing with a new system while they are still working out all of the bugs. Maybe that was a dumb decision but I've made it, so now I'll have to live with it. So far I am very happy!

Thursday we had heavy winds all day & through the night. By morning several inches of snow had fallen & it continued to snow most of the day. And it was cold! We never got above 25 degrees.....brrrrrr

Yesterday the sun broke through several times so we decided to pick up a few groceries & take a drive. I wanted to see what Cave Lake looked like with the previous night's snowfall. We were surprised to see that the foothills had only a light dusting of the white stuff while town got about 6 inches. Anyway, it was a lovely drive & it felt good to be out of the house for a bit.

Last night we dropped down to 7 degrees and it is 30 as I write this. But the sun has reappeared and the snow is melting a bit. I think we're going back into the 40's as the week progresses. Sure hope so. We need to do a bit of rearranging in our basement as well as in the garage and shed where we have a few things stored. And Mom's cinder block garage doesn't retain heat very well. Not really looking forward to it at all!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. And Larry & I want all veterans to know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made in their lives to keep our country free. God Bless Our Veterans!!!
