Hello All !!!

Hello from Nevada and a windy one it is. This start to Spring has been so windy you cant even go outside with out something flying away. well I am home until Wednesday night. Thursday morning I am off to Elko for the weekend. My trip was great. We got to Reno Sunday night. Monday we went to Winnemucca to take my friends niece and nefue home. They rode with us up to Reno. After we came home we did alittle shopping (always fun thing to do) Tuesday I went to Carson City and Lake Tahoe. The lake is so blue and clear. we had a nice lunch while we were there at the Hard Rock Cafe. We walked the streets of Tahoe and did some shopping while we were there. Its so pretty up there with the tall pine trees and snow. I bet it gets cold in Winter?

Wednesday before I got on the plane we went downtown in Reno to an Antique store which reminds me of the one in West Plains where Sue lives. So much to see and not enough time.

My flight home was a bumpy one. I do not fly much so having it bumpy did scare me alittle. Then my family was there to pick me up at the airport. we all went out to have a nice supper together and home we went. Thursday my daugther had a basketball tournament in Las Vegas so back we went the next day. and yesterday my son had a track meet in Boulder City which is about 20 miles out of Vegas. so I went to Pahrump and picked up my oldest and she went with Danielle and I to Boulder City and spent the day. It was a nice but long day and I was beet when I finally made it home at midnight. So today I have not done alot due to just to tired.

Your picture looks so beautiful and so happy to hear you enjoyed such a wonderful time.
As you've probably noticed I've been busy lately and my blogging has been rather hit and miss. But I've been thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers.
I thank you for tagging me and I'll be taking care of that sometime this week! Love Ya Claudia O.
