Good evening!

I did some research on Chaco Canyon, and it looks like I'd need more than a day to explore the region - it's huge, with multiple dwellings, some in better condition than others, but spread out all over the place. Plus one great lodge covers about 3 acres! Most people go for several days to a week, and camp. Probably the best way to explore.

So I decided to be smart and not go for the trip.

Then I found a brochure for the Navajo Zoo, about 30 minutes from here, and run by the Navajo nation. It's a little place, just across the border in Arizona. All of the animals are either rescues or orphaned, and are well cared for by the people. I had a great time there, and even got one of the cougars to wake up a little, look toward me, and roll over. (I can do sort of a purr, which he recognized I guess.) Plus there was a children's birthday going on at the zoo, which seemed like a wonderful idea!!!!

Happy June, everyone! That sure arrived quickly, didn't it? Seems like just a few months ago we were talking about the winter holidays!

Nell, they are expensive here too unless you go into government assisted living. Then there is no choice.
Enjoy your shopping with your son. Thank goodness.....a paycheck!

Hi team,
I hauled and dumped my day's load of fill, so I've got my functional fitness in the bag for the day. The loads are becoming more rocks and less tire mulch, so I think each pail weighs about 30 pounds.
Then, Kriszta's blog inspired me to meditate for 15 minutes. I haven't meditated longer than a minute in ages. It made me realize how much my mind was racing! I'm still sitting crosslegged from that with kitty on my lap. I simply don't want to get up and head to the shower!

Maree, glad the celebration went well.
Nell, those facilities sure are expensive, but your Mom does need the extra care, and it will be great for you for her to be closer. It's bound to be an adjustment for all of you, though.

Off to the showers now. If hubby isn't up to a walk in the woods after lunch, I'll get a good hour walk on my own. Need to build up for our vacation in NH in July!

Have a great day!

Good morning.

I have to leave in a few minutes to shop with my son. He got his first paycheck yesterday!! After 3 months of unemployment, we are all feeling great!

The new community is too new to have a waiting list, that will come within the year. It's so expensive, I'm gasping, but that's what these things cost around here.

Gotta run!

Morning!! It is once again a lovely day here so I will make sure I get out and enjoy.

Maree, happy to hear all went well yesterday with the celebration of life. How nice that it could be held in a family home. Yes, your home will seem very quiet with a little one not there. Hope you have a relaxing day.
Safe travels home today Toni.
Nothing special happening here today except housework and sunshine. I can manage the combination !

Good morning!

Lazy morning for me as I slowly pack up for our drive back to Virginia from Ohio. My cold is waning and Iím enjoying my time here. Want to get back to more movement, but that will come.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Good morning!

Happy Saturday! Sleep in Saturday for me as we didn't get home until 10 pm from the celebration of life gathering. DGD had a blast with her cousins as it was held at the decedent's home, a big house in the country. Her parents met us there and now our house is quiet.

Donna, I sure hope the July appointment happens for you. You've waited long enough!

Nell, is there a waiting list for the facility where your son works? Hope the tour answers all your questions.

I better get this posted. Hope all have a great day!!
