Abit of this and that from the country

Happy Spring everyone!!  I hope this finds you with a signs of spring showing up at your place!
It is a cool, windy day here today...overcast and kinda dreary.  I hope we get some rain, as the ground is so dry and needs a good drink from Mother Nature.  It is my day off and there is not much on my schedule so I thought I better get a post done on my blog!  Some of you are so good at keeping up weekly, daily,,,,, and then there is me!!

We have had a busy month and Easter has come and gone already.  Darrell and I enjoyed a trip to Las Vegas for 5 days over Easter.  It was different not being with family for Easter Sunday.  We had never been to Las Vegas, we stayed at a very nice Westin Resort at Lake Las Vegas.   Some palm trees,  sitting pool side, and not having a schedule was  a wonderful break from everyday!  We rented a car and went to The Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Mead Lake, Red Rock Coulee, where we did alot of hiking and walking.  Of course we spent some time on the strip and took in a show.    It was refreshing to stay about 20 minutes outside of the hustle an bustle of the main strip.

Feeling a bit tropical, even though we are in a desert.

Wishing you all a wonderful APRIL!!

Fabulous pictures of your trip to Nevada. I've never been there and have no desire to visit Las Vegas but I'd love to visit all the other places that you saw some day. It's been really cold here the past few days feeling like February but without the snow. I wish you a beautiful spring and hopefully the weather will be what you need - a mix of rain and sunshine.

Looks like a great trip. It's good to get away from the everyday sometimes. I hope spring is bursting out in your corner of the globe.
