Image: Smokey haze off in the distance.
May 1 - The worst forest fire / wildfire in the United States is 65 miles from us! We are getting the smoke. Lots of smoke! We can hardly see the mountains from our front yard! The first picture is looking to the south east the second picture is looking to the east. The mountains are supposed to be seen there to the east!

May 2 - Smoke from the fires in the distance. This huge fire is about 65 miles from us. It's the largest fire in the USA now and it's growing. 120,000 acres! People are being evacuated. (Note from the Future, June 1, It's up to 315,830 acres.) There are lots of fire fighters from other states fighting this fire.

Image: Little desserts for my birthday
May 2 - Not a birthday cake and no candles but these are no-sugar, no-flour little desserts that go along with our Atkins Keto diet. Happy birthday to me. They were delicious. We should have gotten more! We did get more later in the week.

May 14 - Me and my husband Bert met his biological half brother and sister in person for the first time a few days ago. He was adopted as a baby. They have the same mother, but he has a different father. We connected with them earlier this year. We found them by way of ancestry. They are really nice, of course. Here is me and Bert with them this morning They came down to Taos for several days. We had a great time and they even like me! Here we are.

We're sitting at the bar.

Image: Trees and road in northern New Mexico, USA by me
June 24 1st picture: See all those fallen trees? That happened the middle of last December when a huge wind blew through New Mexico. (It's not from the current fires. They did not reach this area.)

Also see my video I previously posted today.

Image: Sunset northern New Mexico. Beautiful scenery and colorful sky.
July 16 - Beautiful New Mexico sunset.

Image: Purple flowers and greenery
July 22 - another interesting plant I saw near the parking lot of our gym. Google says it's a tamarix plant. Or salt cedar. It's interesting. This is a close-up of the flowers. From what I’ve read it is an invasive species and New Mexico is trying to eradicate it.

Image: Cloud formation in New Mexico
July 29 - Interesting swirling, circular cloud formation this evening

Image: Small cactus in New Mexico.
July 30 - A cactus pretty close to our home out on "The Mesa" in Northern New Mexico. The cactus might be a Escobaria vivipara. I'll keep checking to see if it flowers. I hope so. Note in August: It hasn't flowered yet. It probably won't.

Image: A small black and white mushroom in northern New Mexico
July 30 - A mushroom not too far from our home. I have no clue what kind of mushroom it is. It's flat. I should have taken a pic from the side. It's been nice with the rain, so we're getting mushrooms! I wouldn't even think about eating it. I know nothing about mushrooms.

Image: Small black female dog
July 31 - This dog belongs to one of our neighbors. Not the neighbor that had the other two dogs. She's cute but she won't let us pet her. She comes up to us and then runs away. She still just a puppy. A big puppy. I'm sure she'll grow more.

Image: Sunset in new Mexico
August 1 - Beautiful sunset.

Image: Sunset in New Mexico
August 1. Sunset. Welcome August.

Above and Below: August 6 - Our two kitty cats together on my bed. Pumpkin is 10. Sparky is 16. I know, they look like the same picture but they are different.

August 30 - We drove to UNM Taos because we wanted to see the library in it's new location. This is the building where they are now located. Here's also a pic of a cool round window facing some of the other buildings on campus. I didn't get a picture inside the library because no picture would do it justice. It's beautiful! And very roomy and very comfy.

Image: Two people standing among yellow flowers on a dirt road
August 31 . Bert and me in among yellow flowers out near "Two Peaks". That's Three Peaks in the background. These flowers are called Verbesina encelioides (Golden Crownbeard).
