On a dark and stormy night…

On a dark and stormy night a girl, her sweetheart and their dog went on a drive and took some blurry pictures. Actually, it was a dark and stormy night, just right for a dramatic drive around town. Annie who is dog loves car rides especially when there are storms a brewin’.

Even sweetie likes our little evening drives, or in this case an evening park. New Mexico rarely gets rain, but when it happens everyone seems to freeze on the road, as New Mexicans seem to have difficulty operating a vehicle on a slightly damp road. But give us strong winds and icey roads and we’re good to go.

Here’s some blurry shots of the sky:

I had to include sweetie enjoying his evening drive. Just as Annie who is dog enjoys a good evening outing, we do as well.

But alas, the clouds have parted to reveal our beautiful New Mexico sky once again. Hopefully soon, we’ll have another dramatic stormy night to capture, with less fuzzy pictures.

Lions and tigers and bears…Oh my!!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted pictures of anything that I’ve done, I figured you might be getting tired of seeing pictures of things I’ve just come across on the internet. So, I thought it was time to just do it, as Nike would say. Here are some pretty pictures I took this past weekend. My nieces and nephew came down for a visit, so like any good aunt would do, I fed them sugar and took them to the zoo.

I just can’t believe how big they’ve gotten. I’m beginning to understand why my Grandma always said she wanted to put a brick on my head so I’d stop growing. At the time it sounded scary and not to mention painful, but now I see why she said that. It’s hard seeing the little ones grow up.

We saw lots of really cool stuff at the zoo, or rather the BioPark as the good people at the City would prefer. We saw giant bees…

Giraffes eating grass…

Brick walls and the pretty blue sky…OK maybe the kids didn’t think that was as cool as Auntie did. But isn’t it pretty?

Pretty butterflies at the Butterfly Garden. I got some great ideas here for my yard. I’ll need to sit down and have a little talk with Annie dog. Maybe she and I can come to an agreement, she will stop eating my plants and I will continue taking her on car rides and giving her tummy rubs.

Aside from seeing butterflies and giraffes, we saw other wild animals. Like this specimen…

It was a great weekend, and I’m so glad that my family could come together for a day and see one another. Hopefully soon we can do it all over again.
