Traveling through the desert

I have lived in the desert for about a year and a half now...and if you read my blog I think you know its not my favorite place.

The above picture pretty much described what I thought the desert had to offer.

But Sweetie and I drove about 5 hours from our spot in the desert to my mom's spot in the desert for a quick weekend visit.
We have made this trip before but the desert wanted to show me something different this time.
And I was paying attention.
Driving west out of town with the clouds rolling in, cactus on the hills and the most beautiful shades of blue.
ok, i am listening...

Rocks stacked on did they get there?

2 days later on the way home, they are still there...will they be there forever?

The world awash in gold, it really could not be lovelier.

I heard you, you are beautiful.

Can't get enough....

Sweetie and I started watching the Showtime series The Tudors....omg!
(yes, I said "omg")
It is sooooo good!
It's sexy and dark and suspenseful and exciting...and we are only on Season 1!

King Henry is a big ol' baby and a jerk and I love him.
Poor Catherine, she never stood a chance.

Anne B. is beautiful and I almost feel sorry for her.

My other favorite thing about this show...the jewelry!
I do feel some inspiration coming on from it...we'll see what happens.
But in the meantime if you have not seen this show I highly recommend it.
