Refreshing Drinks

It's warm down here...nothing is more refreshing than..
A glass of freshly squeezed Orange Juice
Or a glass of Solar Tea over Ice!

Random Five Friday

We had a trip to Palm Springs this week taking the grands to the airport!

This week was very hot 34C ( in the 90's)

The skies here have been a bit noisy....practice going on at the airport
The doves are cooing every morning.... the birds are chatting all day and at night...the crickets are singing....wonderful sounds of spring!!

The park is thinning out ....people are heading home... I tend not to think about that just yet!

Blooming Catcus

It's not only the blooms on the catcus that attract me...

but it just amazes me how the flower pops out of a green bud!

And turns into a beautiful flower...
 Complete with little 'gold flecks on the ends'
 When I look at this....I can't help but believe!!

 “Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.” (NIV) Job 12:7-10

Random Five

1. I started working on a t-shirt quilt using hubby's old t-shirts.... hubby really wanted to help...I wonder if I'm the only one who has a hubby who enjoys doing this sort of thing?

2. The weather here has been in the mid 30's........ almost perfect!!! We don't get many days like this back in Alberta!

3. Two of the grands came this week....its great to get to know them better as they are turning into adults.

4. Palm Springs Airport.... I love the little airports.... for us we don't do Phoenix Airport pick-ups;)

5. Doing some biking...lots of second hand stores and hanging out this week....

In North Carolina we visited a niece and her family.  It had been about 8 years since we had seen them. We so enjoyed our time together!!

 We fell in love with a great niece and nephew we had never met!!

Brian had always wanted to visit Munro Louisiana and we were able to do that!
We also met up with another Blogging Friend in Texas..
We had such a wonderful time...they were so much fun!!
We never made it to Tennessee - Arksansas or Oklahoma...
the weather just got to cool so we will save that for another trip.
We were so blessed to have such good weather and saw such beauty throughout the states we visited!
