Aileen had a spill the other day and bruised herself up and sprained her left wrist. She is on the mend. Our weather is much cooler than it has been but we can put up with it as it is still much nicer than up north. We had about .19 of an inch of rain the other day and we could be getting up to an inch Thursday and Friday this week if the forecast is to be believed. We have put Christmas lights up on both lots so it is a little cheerier when outside in the evenings. Our renters arrive tomorrow so we will lose access to the park model.
I have a new printer and it is working out very well. The Epson we bought a couple years ago is an all in one and while it does well on most things, it just couldn't make the grade with my photos. This new Canon Pro100 is awesome giving us prints that match what is on my computer screen.
I got up early one morning and headed out into the desert behind the park to try for sunrise photos
