first thing…new profile photo of me doing my fish-face. that’s just how i roll i guess…makes me giggle 😉
i’ve been visiting family and moving into a new place (we have a yard! and a tree with a tiny peach on it! pictures soon 🙂
it’s been crazy busy and incredibly hot. so hot in our new place, in fact, that the flowers i picked up at the farmer’s market saturday wilted by evening…hot people, like an oven. for realz. which means i am not turning on the oven…at all. well, except maybe in the late, late night time.
having said that, our kind friends jackie and danny gifted us their former evaporation (swamp) cooler. yay! awesome! sean set it up yesterday and let me just say that being able to sit still without breaking a full sweat is a wonderful gift…
…and now, more small town nevada photos…
my greatest pal, brooke, and i went stomping around the town and into a canyon or two to take these photos…they are mostly of the old diamond canyon mine settlement (not a diamond mine, a gold mine) and of one of the many old cemeteries. i’m fascinated by old buildings and graveyards and also super creeped out at the same time. i told brooke that if decaying hand should burst forth from the ground, she should run away and save herself. i have the dumbest fears ever.
this particular cemetery had many, old, dusty, fake flowers on a lot of the graves…i’m pretty sure my cousin and i placed those there when we were like 8 or something, when we used to wander around and read all the really old head stones…cheap thrills in a small town 😉
