Week 34

Spent most of this week with my Mom. It was nice to visit with her and a few of her dear friends. 

One evening we got to talking about her life in the 1950s... 

Mom joined the Civil Air Patrol with a friend when she was fourteen. My father was a flight instructor there at the East LA airport and that is how they met. She started taking lessons and got her private pilot license at sixteen, then her commercial license at eighteen. So much history still to discover from this woman. 

The Monsoon Season was in full performance mode in the afternoons and it was beautiful. Hence, all the sky photos in these past two posts.

Sunset from Mom's backyard.

Mom lives in the high desert and she calls these weeds. 

She has several rose bushes on her property. 

This is Goofy. She adopted my Mom. They are inseparable. 

Spent a few nights on the front porch watching the Monsoon show.

My customary stop at Sunset Point.

Thankfully, I had very little weather to deal with on the way back down to the airport.

I got myself into a watercolor rainbow groove in Procreate. 
(more to come)
A very soothing activity while dealing with an "insect venom allergy" 
aka 50+ mosquito bites on my ankles and feet.
