I love this photo... but one thing a person must ALWAYS remember when in the desert... WEAR SHOES.


The front yard is going well with it's re-vamping...
Elroy (the new elm tree) seems to be doing well at his new spot.
The peppers and tomatoes are looking healthy.
And we are building a small "rock creek" in one corner.
All that's left *in the front yard*... is to finish the creek...
and plant some decorative grasses.

About the photos for today: I bought this fabulous typewriter off of Craigslist for a friend. It is an Olivetti Lettera; an Italian made ... very mod... typewriter. It is awesome. It is housed in a leather case; so it's really portable. It's completely functional, and even has a super cool *ding* to it when it resets to a new line.
I have been wanting to take some photos of it... but haven't taken the time to do so... until this afternoon.
