A Visitor

My son, Dustin, came for a visit for a couple of weeks but all he and his dad did while he was here was work on his Jeep. They had to overhaul the engine. First photo is of Dustin and Lee, second one of is Dustin and me last 2 are of Dustin. Oh, and the dog, Ziva.

New Lighting

13 years ago when we moved into this house Hubby and I agreed the lights in the kitchen and bathrooms looked like lighting for a garage or shop and we would change them. Finally last June we agreed on some and I ordered them as they were online, and even on clearance. Here are photos of the old and the new. First one is of the old light in the bathroom followed by the new one in the bathroom. Then there is the old ones that were in the kitchen and were about 12 feet up so that it was a real adventure to change out a lightbulb or try to clean the fixture which had some sort of rough paint on it that made the dirt and grim stick to it so bad it couldn't be cleaned. Last are a couple of photos of my new chandelier. It is almost to large for my tiny kitchen but now I can see the kitchen. Don't have to guess at how much dirt, crumbs or left over food is on the cabinets.

Last Flowers of Fall

Last flowers of summer. It froze right after I took these.
First are Mums, then morning glories, a cosma, geraniums, marigolds, nasturtiums, and a very heart shaped morning glory leaf.

Eclipse of the Moon From New Mexico

The moon, (and the sun) always comes up over the Sandia Mountains where are about 50 miles east of us, although it depends on the time of year which part of the mountains  where the moon come up. It can very quit a bit. This is the moon coming up the night of the eclipse. It wasn't completely dark when it first pushed up over the mountain. The eclipse actually started about 7pm here and was complete at 8:24pm and over with an hour later. I took lots of photos as I don't expect to ever see one again. I am glad I have been able to see as many as I have. About 3 that I can remember, and several of the sun as well.
