Trip to Santa Fe

Fire at Two Peaks

(Carson Estates in northern New Mexico)

Fire at a place just down the hill from where we live in Two Peaks, Carson Estates, Northern New Mexico
This fire happened on July 10, 2013. It was kind of scary.
I called 911 when I noticed it although other people also called them before me.
The fire trucks, ambulance, sheriff and other vehicles showed up after a while.

July 2013 - Food at Home

July 19 2013. This is a breakfast that I make and we have quite often. The whole wheat apple & raisin pancake is not perfectly round but it's delicious. The yellow stuff is tofu with potatoes, sausages and spices. Sometimes I'll throw in an egg or two also. Yummy, if I may say so myself.
