This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

January? You could have fooled me....


Izzy and I embarked on a long walk this morning...this is a shot of the back way out of our community.  In the distance you can see the M Hotel and Casino, the newest Hotel/Casino at the beginning of Las Vegas Blvd.

You can see the streets are pretty deserted, hence our many peaceful, quiet walks...

The mountains have a slight dusting of snow...but check out that sky!!  It was so warm, I was sweating when we returned home!!


Walking further down the previous photo of the street, around the corner and up the hill, this shot through the trees, (see in between the branches) is a different perspective of the M Casino/Hotel...

I like this shot...I may use it for a painting...



This is almost at the top of the  hill....













This is coming back down the hill toward the "valley of roof tops"....which is what I call the valley or canyon where we live...

It was an absolutely gorgeous day.  Perfect walking weather...

January?  You could have fooled me...

"valley of roof tops".

Funny. Sounds like it was quite a long walk. How good that you took advantage of the day. Thanks for joining me on my ride also.

We've got lots of snow in Britain, but thankfully not much right where I live, which is on the coast.

Walking not so easy here in England at the moment with snow everywhere, turning to ice at this very moment. It's all very pretty, but meant my school had half its teachers and half its pupils today ... one of those 'cobble it together and do your best' days ..

I really enjoyed my walk with you and Izzy today as it is far to cold outside for a walk here right now.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I will enjoy following you on your journey as well......:-) Hugs

Hi Midlife, thanks for visiting...actually, the walk was not that long...only a couple miles, but very enjoyable..

Hi Ruth..Lucky you living on the coast and in Britain! I thought for sure we would get snow, but not this year...thanks for stopping by...

Hi Fran! I bet it is beautiful in England... having never been there except in the movies or my imagination in books. I hold romantic thoughts of it. England and Ireland are two of my Mother's favorite places...
