Finding Beauty and Just for the JOY of it

Blustery winds blew
weather through the neighborhood ...
over sev'ral days
but the weekend will be clear
with more rain next week

They've spent quite a bit of time hanging out at the Ahwahnee Lodge and that's how they've been able to keep warm and in telephone contact with me. In addition, they've taken a few guided bus tours because apparently you can't drive all over the park the way we used to in days gone by, but they're not quite sure where to travel next because the road over the Tioga Pass is closed currently.
3. I enjoyed attending a 'Spring concert' Sunday afternoon with friends and I ran errands after class Monday so the Explorer has a full tank of gas, Molly has food & treats and I have fresh groceries in the house.
4. I've managed to find and copy most of the photo & data files from an old backup of the Dell that 'crashed' a few weeks ago and I'm very relieved. As a result of this experience, I ordered two Iomega external drives from Costco.com earlier this week and they arrived yesterday. I hope to use them to back up each of my laptops 'real time' so that I won't have to scramble in the future if one of them crashes.
5. I enjoyed sharing more rose photos (and a few lingering irises) at Small Reflections ... ruby red Mr. Lincoln and apricot colored Just Joeys ... with some 'random thoughts' midweek, and planned to share more flowers from a recent walk around the neighborhood here ... Just for the JOY of it! However I must leave for class now, so I'll share when I return

I was pleasantly surprised when my brother-in-law answered the cell phone this morning and enjoyed chatted with my sister while I ran some errands before heading home. Apparently the weather was good enough during the day to hike to Vernal Falls and visit Mirror Lake. Today they're on the road (following advice from the folks at the Ahwahnee Lodge) ... headed for South Lake Tahoe ... hoping to get over the Sierra Nevada Mountains and down to Hwy 395 while there's some clear weather ... before the next storm arrives.
I've added the 'colorful neighborhood views' for #5 above (as promised before I left) after listening to messages & returning phone calls and after eating a bit of lunch, methinks I'll take Molly for a walk to calm her down and clear my head.
Hope you're have a delightful day
and wonderful weekend!
