Even though living in the Desert Southwest during the summer can be a bit hot. One perk is the Monsoon storms that we frequently experience. If we are lucky then storms roll in during the afternoon and bring cool breezes, rain, and sometimes a great light show.
They can bring the humidity too, but it nothing like the 100% humidity found in the east and midwest. We had one such storm a few days ago. The storms also can provide wonderful sunsets. I took these photos and the sky never fails to delight me.
Here is to wonderful, cool summer evenings.

Right here actually. I needed a bloggie break because I did not have much to say for awhile. A lot has happened in the past few weeks. A lot has happened over the past year.
Just to recap, I lost my job last August. I moved out of my own place and back into a former home. That did not work so well. I went to stay with my parents. I went back to the former home for a couple of weeks. I packed up all my wordly goods, traveled to the hottest city in American and put them in a 5×15 storage shed. I like to travel light.
I then moved in with Cinderella and her family. That did not exactly work out for the best either. Nothing on their part, it just was not the right place for Lucie my big, red dog and me.
Next we spent a couple of hours at my sister’s house. Not a great move either. Let’s just say five dogs in one house is one too many dogs. We will leave it at that.
So, back to Cinderella’s house for a few days. Next stop was Cinderella’s best friend’s home. There we were able to fit in a little easier. A yard for Lucie and a friend named Lily made it better for us to get by.
After a few weeks I finally got a job. After two days I no longer had the job. Something about over hiring people. Yea, thanks for the enormous high followed by the dive into dispair. I only engaged in a pity party for about five minutes. Ok, maybe over night but the next day I was right back at it. Karma is a funny thing. I was working for temp agency for a very well known company. A few days later I landed a job with the well known company. Karma, kismet, fate, whatever it was, I took the job thank you very much.
Right out of the pity party I decided to apply for a job in the second hottest city in America that I had left a couple of months before. They called, I went and let’s just say I now have two jobs. I have time before both jobs start. I will start the first one and see how it goes. I still have the well known company as backup. I have choices.
Lucie and I are now back at Grandma M and Grandpa DingDon’s house. So far, so good. Lucie is behaving and once again adjusting to another enviroment. She has been here before so it is not something new.
Along the way she has lost a couple of beloved toys such as Santa Dog. Miss Lily turned Santa Dog into a mere lump of stuffing. She also commandeered Lucie’s tug bone.
So what is a good doggie mama to do? Introducing Pinky Dog.
I think Pinky Dog will fit right in.
They say home is were the heart is.
Or in this case, where the lap is.
