Cactus Rose

It's another sunny day!!!

The farmer and I are having
a lovely get-away from the crazy Winter
weather back home.

We couldn't have planned it better...
it showed -27 on the dashboard as we headed for 
the airport at 4 a.m.!!

Temperatures of +26,
sunny skies,
Palm trees,
fragrant flowers,
and friends
greeted us at our destination.

We are blessed!

The best part is
that after a week of struggling freaking out
with my computer
(upgrading my software, crashes, etc. - it's a long story)
I have figured out a 
complicated way to post pictures 
onto my blog again.

I was beginning to turn into a
Cactus Rose instead of a Rhubarb one.

Till next time .......... stay warm and safe!
