Driving through northern New Mexico into southern Colorado, I kept seeing painting after painting flashing through my imagination. I love these picturesque clusters of ranch buildings looking so tiny in the distance, nestled in the foothills of the Rockies. This particular ranch was surrounded by miles of wild lavender and other flowers blooming at the height of summer.
And now, back to watching the Olympics with my husband, surrounded by various and sundry sleepy dogs.
