Her nearest neighbor, Pete, built this mini greenhouse out of sliding windows. It was great!
We had plenty of spinach, Romaine, chard, and cilantro for our green smoothies. (I mostly drank them. I think it will take Mom some getting used to.)
After Bible study, our hostess invited us to her garden to see her climbing roses and various irises.
I love these ladies so much. Mom's lifetime friend, Joanne, casually remarked that her irises were also blooming. I jumped at the chance to go to Joanne's place! It's so peaceful there and I usually see birds like Orioles and woodpeckers. Once we even saw javalinas in her garden!
As I said previously, we did everything together while we were there. Mom needed some hay, so we drove out to her connection to pick up six bales for the horse and the goat.
|Is the truck close enough?|
|Do you need me to get the truck closer?|
|Mom, I think he's got it.|
I opted to take a short nap while Mom, Mark, and Glenna headed out to the ranch for some auto items (the ranch is where Mom and my step-dad lived until he passed). Oh, and JP went with them.

|Feels good to laugh!|
|I love finding photos from Glenna. Wonder what she was thinking here?|

|I love her!|
Ok, here's the side story. My Mom told Glenna that there was a 15 year old boy who played the fiddle and she should really get to know him. She said he is also home schooled and he's all cowboy.
Mom was so disappointed to see that he was wearing a cap instead of a cowboy hat.
She kept reassuring Glenna that he was a real, actual cowboy and that she should meet him. She said she would talk to his grandmother and arrange marriage.
|Glenna's laughing because my brother is giving my mother a "face lift" by grabbing the back of her neck.|
At the end of the night, I was the big winner! There's my pile with Mark's winnings - he got the pocket lint, washers, screws, and bits of metal.
The next day, we would have to make the long trek back to Albuquerque. We went to bed at a decent hour in order to get a good start. More to come!
