Country Roads and Mom’s Yard Decor

Three photos from I don’t know when actually when but they are all iPhone photos. Mom had a wonder sense of design both indoor and out. She passed in 2012 yet her indoor and out decor is still unchanged. As it should be. πŸ™πŸ»

This is where I am actually from, not the Mojave Desert 😎

Sunny Fronds

I spent some time in the backyard today soaking up the wonderful 82 degree breeze and sunshine. My Latino neighbours behind me playing some traditional Latino music but not too loud for a change.

Other neighbours outdoors working on their yards also enjoying the sunshine. A quick chat about my electric leaf blower from much more than six foot apart. My windows open allowing a soft warm breeze through the house.

I thought why not grab the Z6 and take a few more redundant palm tree photos? Another wonderful day in my little piece of Las Vegas. 🌴🌡🌞

People Are Out and About

Las Vegas is a city of about two million people, many of them are still out and about doing their daily things. My drug store and pharmacy now has signs taped to the floor with blue tape forming a line with a six foot spacing. Why six foot? Overall things seem very much normal around my area of the city which I’m grateful for but let’s keep things in perspective, be safe.

Today is sunny with 82 degrees. 🌴🌞😎

Sunny Blue

Good morning from sunny Las Vegas, today we have full sunshine and 81 wonderful degrees on tap! It will cool to the seventies after today which isn’t bad at all.

A Moon, Workbench and Pet Burials

A few more photos from a few years back for you. Today I hit a different grocer as my last time there this place had lots of water and pretty much everything else except bunwad of course. So ridiculous! Apparently people believe food is less important.

Did they ever consider using paper towel’s other uses? It was nice to see a local store so well stocked which I am very grateful for. So much so that I thanked employees for staying at work considering the circumstances.

Treasured Memories

Feeling a bit nostalgic this morning I pulled these old photos from 2015 from my archives. These were likely taken in 2015 which was three years after my mother passed. The corner decor is her design in one of the bathrooms in the home.

The barn is at minimum sixty years old and used to be a part of a Thoroughbred farm. The lawn photo looking downhill toward the crick is what I call the North Lawn, I mowed this place for two decades. It takes practice to cut nice, straight lines like this on a lawn!

People Out and About

It’s both nice to see people at the park and not. Should people be doing this? Are they not taking this dangerous situation seriously? I shouldn’t be be out either.

That’s a bit of snow atop 6500+ foot Gass Peak far away.

The World is Still Beautiful…

Today I set out for a few items which I did find, then headed back home for more self-imposed isolation. It was wonderful to get the heck out of the house for a change of scenery! As you can see there are many folks out and about today, in the next set I drove through the park and was amazed at how many folks were out and about today. The world is still beautiful!

If you noticed the banding in my photos recently you’ve got a good eye. This is because I now reduce image sizes way down to around 200kb rather than upload them at more than twice that size which has already saved a ton of storage space in my account. Sorry, I think this sucks as it’s not displaying my amateur photographs as well as I would to see them on this blog.
