It's all about the view.

We have been having some interesting weather lately. It started on Sunday. Lots of clouds in the sky. And the best part the temperatures dropped. Got down to the high 60s last night and supposed to again tonight. This morning we have all the doors open and are enjoying a nice breeze. This was Sunday night Just thought the dark clouds of ver the sun lite desert was pretty. I just love the view from our home. So much open space. 
This was Monday afternoon. Dark, dark clouds over the mountain - could even see where it was raining. 
And still sun shine and blue sky over most of the desert. 
An hour or so later I happened to look out the window and saw this. The sun was just at the right angle to fashion  a rainbow way out over the desert. We sat outside and watched this for about 1 minutes before it faded. So pretty. 
Another view of it. The tree is in our yard. 
And yet another view from our patio. 
Just after dark the wind came up. Lots of wind! We lived in Indiana for 8 years in tornado country and never had any damage. We're here one month and the wind got us. Not bad but none the less. Bill had some 4 x 4s standing up against the patio wall. The wind knocked them down and one hit the patio door. Luckily it didn't break the glass but it knocked the edging off the door. Turned out to be an easy fix thank goodness.
Yesterday afternoon we decided to go out to dinner. Coming home we spotted another "rainbow" over the mountains. And yesterday we did get a tiny bit of rain. Just enough to make the desert smell good. 
Been home a while and Bill called me outside. Again a rainbow way out in the desert - only this time it was a big one. 
The whole rainbow.

All the way over the house. 
The end of a great day, yesterday.
Direct TV guy came today and got the rest of the TVs up and running. Now we can watch NASCAR and soccer at the same time. I spent most of the day sorting beads! It will take me the rest of my life to get them all sorted. More about that tomorrow. 


  1. All that beautiful open space with the awesome view also has the down side of allowing the wind to really get up to speed.

  2. You do have great views and all those rainbows are sure to bring you luck.

  3. hi Your Indiana home was beautiful and this is too.
