I apologize that I am so very late for our coffee date! I can’t believe it’s already Sunday evening. Where did the weekend go? How was your weekend?
My daughter’s dad was in town for the weekend. He travels a lot, and when he is in town I make sure that she gets to meet him. It’s not always easy to arrange. Her dad works a lot, usually seven days a week. This time it went pretty smooth.
We managed to watch the new Marvel movie in 3D, on Saturday. It was a lot better than I thought it would be! We went to one of the buffets in town afterwards (yummy, yummy,) and a stranger picked up our check. Unexpected kindness always warms my heart. There are good people out there! I try my best to pay it forward, when possible.
Today, Sunday, we went to Red Rock Canyon. It was great to leave the city behind for a little bit, even though it was terribly crowded on some places. It was still awesome. I’m grateful. The Joshua trees are starting to bloom, and it was a magnificent sight. I’ve never seen them in bloom before.

The desert, when the sun comes up…I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the Earth began. ―
Have you noticed any signs of spring in your area? It was 78 degrees here today, and on Tuesday we’re expecting 84. If it was up to me I’d say that’s enough. Pretty perfect, it doesn’t have to get hotter.
How is your coffee? Can I get you a refill? Or maybe some tea, since it’s starting to get a little late for coffee? I got a new Echinacea tea today, I’m going to try it now. Would you like to try?
When we lived in California my daughter used to ride our horses 5-6 days/week. I’ve been trying to get her interested in different types of exercising activities available around here, but she have not shown any interest in any of them. Today she said that if she had a bike that she liked she would agree to ride it every day. Said and done, we took care of that, while she still had her promise in fresh memory. We found one that she liked, and took it to a park for a test ride. She LOVED it, and we’re going to go bike riding every evening. I started to get a little worried about her lack of interest in exercising here (she loves to eat… a lot.) I’m going to do my very best to make this bike riding a new, good habit.
I feel like it’s been a good, but very intense weekend. I hope your weekend was amazing. I’m going to leave you with a sunrise photo from this morning.
