It's Been a Quiet Couple Weeks

I just realized I haven't blogged for a while, probably because nothing at all has been happening around here!  Among our less than exciting things...

  • Hubby got both of his covid vaccines.  He got the Pfizer vaccines and had very minimal side effects which was a relief (his sister got the Moderna vaccine and had a scary reaction to it but fortunately she was fine after a bit).
  • We got our annual senior pass renewed for the Nevada State Parks.  It's a great deal at only $30 and we hope to visit ALL of the Nevada parks this year.  The photos above are from the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Park. 
  • We watched the drama unfold in Texas this week with the snow storm/power outage/water outage.  Fortunately we are sitting in our warm house with beautiful weather outside, unfortunately all of this comfort makes us not as prepared for disaster as we should be.  Needless to say, I'm going to be reviewing our disaster gear and supplies and working on an alternate source of electricity (if the power goes out in Las Vegas in the summer we would be toast!).
  • Our taxes have been filed (online, through H & R Block) and we are just waiting for our refund.
  • One of the daughters got married last week and while we would have liked to be there, watching over Facebook Live was a good alternative.
  • Hubby finally got his driver's license renewed.  Our DMV is still really backed up but I was lucky to find him an earlier appointment online than the one he had which was a couple month's past his license expiration date.  There were still long lines and because our state is switching to Real ID he had to bring a stack of documents with him but at least it is done now!
  • Our neighbors got a whole house security system (she said she couldn't sleep without it after the break in).  I ordered a couple solar motion detector lights from Amazon and we put them up which is the extent of our security system so far.
  • Finally, I found this cool site online so I have been guessing cities in my free time!


  1. Thank you so much for the City Guesser site! You find and share the neatest things! I have felt so isolated for the past year, with covid, my physical inability to get around too well and now buried under snow and ice. It was so nice to view this site and the different cities and countries, etc. Thank you very much!

    1. I'm glad you like it! I spend way too much time on that site!
