Busy bees

The other morning while out doing my early morning swim I noticed my favorite cactus by the pool had two new flowers on it. I love these flowers because they are so huge. They only last one night, then they slowly drop away and off then leave a fruit behind. The birds love the fruit…

Arizona is closed-

Well not really but parts of it is. A couple of weeks ago when we drove up to check on Our Little Red House we were surprised to see closure signs everywhere where happy families used to be camping and out enjoying our woods. It was really sad seeing this on our drive up. It…

Repost-Road trip time

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

Repost-Easter Traditions & Decorations

It’s that time of year again, my favorite time…Spring. I have been very busy preparing Easter decorations. One of the best places for holiday supplies is any dollar store…just be careful you don’t turn it into the hundred dollar store….so bring a list. I picked up several flowers, ribbon, wreaths and a little rag bunny…

Always remember to say I love you.

  Once again another month just flew by. But this month of February is usually one of my favorites, so I expected that to happen. Anyway if you are one of my followers then you know I was having some computer issues during this month so I haven’t been reading a lot of blog post…

Some Arizona sunshine for those Winter time blues.

You know, where you can’t do anything because you feel awful, so you just sit and read…cough…sit and watch TV…cough…then sleep and cough at the same time. Misery that’s what it is. And moms always get…

A trip back to the little red house.

We had a holiday weekend and decided to head up north. We are redoing my husband’s office and turning it into a little bedroom, and we needed an extra bed we had up at the little red house. Our trip up north this time was not an easy one. Our neighbors here in the city…

An Arizona Ghost

     Whether you believe in ghost or not, there are a lot of old ghost towns out here in the west and some of those old western towns actually come with a ghost or two…according to some that is and believe it or not my son and daughter had their very own ghost experience in…

Aloe Vera- Heaven’s wand

Summer is almost over and as always our garden always takes a hit during the hot months here in Phoenix. No matter what my husband and I do, we always loose something over the summers in our garden. With record heats it is bound to happen. Even with covered areas with shade the temps are…

Road trip-Morning Glories, Sunflowers and Pumpkins.

Wow. Our little red house is popping with colors right now, growing all along our barb wire fence is a beautiful vine with purple flowers. Our neighbor Doug has been helping us out when we are away mowing our lawn and he left this beautiful plant. And to think we were always weed whipping all…
