Headed towards back to the basics living.

“Do,Do,Do…Looking out my back door…”


Sometimes….like when it’s really windy, (like today), or when I have a headache for the third day in a row (like today) & I’m sad because of a recent death of a loved one (like today) and I’m seriously considering just crawling back in bed and calling it a day (Wah! Okay, thanks for letting me complain and get that out of my system.) I remind myself that life doesn’t have to perfect for it to be good-really good.


Case in point, DH and I went for a drive on Monday-just to see what we could see in our new neighborhood and found some great places to hike or have a picnic in the nearby Sandia Mountains.

This is about 20 minutes from our house.

We had no idea that you could see so far except at the peak. The peak of the Sandias is actually fairly well-known. It can be reached by car or the tramway-the longest aerial tram in the world.

View from the peak. This is about another 10 minutes up the mountains.

Also we found that New Mexico DOES have running water-sometimes you just have to dig a little deeper to find it.

Running water! It does exist!

And our labs couldn’t have been happier! I think they were seriously considering diving in!

It was a great day!

And I feel blessed to live in an area where I really enjoy the scenery…lookin’ out my back door.

  1. I have a headache too and wanted to go back to bed , but… mine is from lack of sleep (DS and DH are sick) and the weather. But it sounded like such a good idea on such a yucky day! I’m baking bread instead.
    New Mexico does have some really beautiful scenery and I’m glad you guys got out to enjoy it! Just remember “the sun will come out tomorrow, tomorrow” or maybe the next day;-) G-d bless and get some rest.


  2. I know what ya mean about feeling blessed by the ordinary, especially this week and today! Even though my kiddos have been bickering since they got home, I’m glad we get to be family!

    love ya
