I’ve gone quiet. But I’m okay. It’s been a month of more losses for people I love. It’s been hot and dry, even here in the Wet Mountains. The Cozy House has been scraped to nothing, though I haven’t been back yet to see the nothingness. They did not tell me before they did it, as they were supposed to, so I didn’t have the chance to be there. I hadn’t decided if it would be good for me or not. And then they made the decision for me. We’re coming up on six months and some days, some thoughts, the pain of the loss is unbearable and other times, I forget that it’s real. I’m sure I’ll feel like writing about that soon.

But for now, I feel like sharing images, so I’ll share some from last month’s (kind of a shitshow) trip to lovely Albuquerque.

Daily gratitudes (I need to keep doing these):

  • A cooler day
  • Snuggly Pharaoh
  • Minor indulgences
  • Work
  • Sunlight
Outstanding in his field.
I am now more educated. Yay, women!
Love the New Mexico sky.
He’s wearing a bow tie.
At my shoulder.
Our favorite pastime. Though we accidentally drove through a gravel pit to get there.
My first roadrunner.

Daily gratitudes:

  • MKL
  • Do-overs
  • That the wind has calmed a smidge

Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing just a part of Las Vegas through my eyes.

The Plaza Hotel from a corner of the Square.
The bar, which we did not get to hang out at.
And which looks much more upscale than when I was last here in 1990 on my honeymoon with ex-Pat.
Art and sun.
Something you don’t see every day.
Refreshing.
I debated sharing this but it really had an impact on me. We explored one of the local cemeteries and these were, we deduced, the graves of COVID-19 victims who could not have a formal funeral. There were several long rows just like this off to the side of the cemetery.
Bye now.

Today’s gratitudes:

  • Sunshine
  • That MKL and Pharaoh arrive today
  • My truck
  • That I’ve won over one of the postal workers (it only took six months)
Keeping watch.
St. Patrick’s Day Posting.
I do love murals.
Gift Shop Tree
Really Odd and Slightly Hurtful.
Marital Stand-off.
These gentlemen watched over us in our bedroom. Only a little creepy.
This fellow came home with me. His name is Fren.
As did the piece. I think her name is Churro.

Yesterday was a rough and emotional day. I was poked and squished and prodded and gave away money and went back to cozy house, but I’m not quite ready to write about that. Soon. Until then, we’ll spend a couple more days in Las Vegas.

Today’s gratitudes:

  • An easy drive
  • 13 inches of snow, which is good for the drought
  • Leftover Carelli’s Tricolor Tortellini
  • Petting two dogs yesterday
