Yesterday, I met some neighbors. They were on their way to California for the weekend. We had a few minutes to talk and they seemed very nice. Then I went to my first Kiwanis meeting here in Las Vegas. It was very different than my meeting in Carmel. The membership was all men, the meeting lasted for two hours and the lunch was $15.00!
I did not get any unpacking done but I needed the break! BACK TO it today.

The apricot tree is in my front yard. I was getting in the car and looked over to see "apricots" growing on my tree. I am so excited!

When we were heading out yesterday, I realized that I have a apricot tree in my front/side yard. It is loaded with nearly ripe fruit. That is exciting! I haven't had a fruit tree since I was a child. Get the jelly jars ready!

Oh My! I have a grape vine! I have no idea what kind of grapes are on it but I do know that they are edible. The flowers are a gift from my wonderful realtors Rosie and Curt. The palm tree is mine and the froggie at the base is for Mollie to bark at. The fabric is the piece that I found at the thrift store for my valances.
I have done a great deal of the inside unpacking and my house is beginning to look "homey'. Yesterday I found several thrift stores in my travels. I bought a french press coffee pot, some bowls that match my set and a piece of fabric to make valances for my great room windows. It has the exact right colors for the room, sage, cinnamon, desert gold, wheatgrass. 4 1/2 yards for $10, wahoo! Did I tell you that my coffee pot and all my dishes are on a missing moving van? Well, actually not missing. It will be here Thursday.
