Surprise Snow!!

When I opened the curtains this morning -- really late at about 8:00 a.m. -- what to my wondering eyes should appear but beautiful fluffy flakes of snow drifting down.  It's times like these that make me especially thankful for the AZ Shuttle run to Sky Harbor tomorrow.  Just in case.

Fed the three pugs under the overhang of the eaves...Lilly disdained getting out of bed until the last minute.  She dislikes ANY KIND of moisture from the sky.  Makes her life definitely happier here in the high country of Arizona rather than the Mid-Willamette Valley in Oregon.

Hubby Steve's prickly pear dropped a bunch of fruit this year.
Glad I had Neighbor Ed put on the "new" recycled metal roof.

All Natural Three Figure Ash Creek Nativity


I was going through old photos from last year...2013.  I have my little Christmas tree up, but realized I don't have a creche in the house.  

Maile chowing down...

When I was up in Oregon in October, Maile was working on her eating skills.

Fall in the High Country

An amazing fall -- crisp & dry & colorful.  Feeling a little guilty about my family in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

Our mountain climate means close to freezing at night (we've had one freeze that took out the last of the tomatoes) and low '70's in the day.

Fertilizer for trees

.Aspens getting rain water from tank -- keeping ur drained as much as possible during monsoons. I just use the Jobe tree spikes. Keeps pugs from lapping up fertilizer.
