Last Wednesday evening I flew to Denver so that I could ride back to Texas with my sister.  It was a spur of the moment decision and we had a great time!  I spent two whole days in Colorado where it was gloriously cool.  I tried to soak up as much of the scenery and cool weather as I could but returning to our Texas heat makes me yearn for the mountains again!


The view from my sister’s deck above.  And, of course, a picture of Pikes Peak below. P1020200

The drive back to Texas was beautiful.  It is amazingly green all the way across the usually brown desert lands.


I returned home to find progress on our house.  The stucco is all on and the roof is almost finished.  Our front yard has been full of trucks all day!

Today they are doing the insulation and then comes the dry wall.  Whoopee!  My art room (below) is now insulated and the sheet rock is in the room.  As soon as the insulation passes inspection, the sheet rock goes on.  The builder tells me that we will have a bee hive of activity next week!  I’m ready!
