Birthday Present


I received this beautiful granny square afghan from my dear friend Andrea. It is gorgeous and was a complete surprise. Thank you very much, Andrea.

I had an hour long deep tissue massage today and I feel wonderful.
 
We are thinking of taking a trip to San Francisco this fall...

Have a good week!

Flamingos in the mall




Saw these big birds at the mall in Primm, Nevada, at the state line to California. Outlet shopping galore there.

What I am reading right now: "The Blindness of the Heart" by Julia Franck. The quote by The Guardian says it all: "Disturbing, original, and brilliant."

What are you doing on the weekend?

Hairdresser, a trip to the library, and some retail therapy are on my list for Saturday.

On Sunday, a lounge chair on my patio with a book, sounds good to me.

Enjoy the summer!

Beautiful Day

 Armenian Chicken Sautee
 Grilled Chicken & Lamb Shish Kebobs
 Ashta Bil Asal






My special day started with cards and phone calls from family and friends. A day of sunshine, good company, celebrating, and enjoying the day.

We had a wonderful dinner at my favorite restaurant Maza and the best dessert I have ever tasted, Ashta Bil Asal.

Thank you all my dear friends for thinking of me.

Have a beautiful week!

Strawberry Soup



Last week, when we were having a heat wave, I tried out this strawberry soup. I saw the recipe in a health magazine we get at work. Try it, it's delicious and so easy to prepare.

2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
2 cups plain, low-fat yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Blend strawberries in blender until smooth. Slowly add yogurt. Keep blending.
Pour mixture into large bowl. Add orange juice, sugar, and water.
Stir until blended.
Chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Rock Climbing at Calico Basin









A fascinating sport to watch!

We met two girls from Berlin, Germany, climbing. They took a whole year off, travelling the world climbing. Good luck to them, wherever they are today.

The last pic is a guy from Alaska, he came all the way to Nevada for the sport. Thanks for letting me take your photo.

Have a great week ahead!

California Dreaming



Well, this time we finally made it to California. Always wanted to go there. Only 35 miles from Las Vegas.

What are your plans for the weekend?
Any plans for a summer vacation?
Tell me about it...

Hope your weather is as nice as we are having here. Temps in the 90's and sunshine.
One should not have to go to work in gorgeous weather like this. But tomorrow is TGIF...

ENJOY!

Desert Flora










It's so beautiful to see the desert in bloom.

Went to a fantastic Restaurant last night called Maza. Delicious food and excellent service.For dessert we had Ashta Bil Asal, it is so yummy!...We think it might become our fav place to dine.

I am working a condensed work week for the next two months, starting next week and will have Mondays off. I love 3-day weekends!

Have a good Sunday!
