Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

Updates From Bellingham

A view from the living room.  Me chasing deer off the garden Baby deer wondering around Just an update on what's going on down here. I wanted to post a blog everyday but the internet signal is very bad using the internet wireless modem.  I'm hoping to get this posted before I get cut off again.  Anyway, that's my Mother-in-law and next to her is her best friend Donna, who flew up here from other state. Behind Donna, from left is Joel, Jeanne and Bruce (siblings) Jeanne and Bruce already left and Donna just left this morning, so it's just me, Joel and a hospice nurse who come checking up on her now and then.

My Mother-in-law

I'm in Bellingham , WA right now with my husband. My Mother-in-law is not doing well. She has been in ICU for few days and yesterday they release her home. She have hospital bed at home and all the stuff she needs to make her a little comfortable. She's in pain but she rather go home than stays in hospital. However, we are in the outpatient right now because there's something wrong with her feeding tube.   My brother-in-law is here and my sister-in-law will be down here tomorrow. Please continue to pray for us.

House For Sale

Image
Finally.... This was the reason why I haven't post for some time. I have been busy with the house work and get the place ready to sell. Boy, it's a lot of work, moving, packing, cleaning, fixing, organizing and more. Our house is a duplex, we live downstairs and our friends are renting the upstairs unit. . I hate to leave but I think it's time to move on.

Brenda Smith

We had a late Birthday Party in the office for Brenda because our boss was out-o- town. She said she's only 25 yrs old and always will be... I think I'm going to agree with her, just on this one.

TGIF

Thank God It's Friday! It has been hot here in the office, the air condition is not working and we don't know when its going to get fixed. Almost everybody here is whining, well, except me. 80 deg F is quite comfortable for me... There are so much stuff going on this weekend (house work, 5k walk/Run, Garden, Party ) and I don't know what am I going to do first. Hopefully, I'll get something done. Joel is home for only 6 days and leaving on Monday; 2 days left to do a bunch of work in the house. Oh my oh my! I fired him too because he has been goofing off. We can only appreciate the beauty surround us if we stop focusing on ourselves.

Chena River Float

The weather was warm and the sun was out, It was a good evening. For Brenda's Birthday, we floated down from Pioneer park to Pikes landing and it took us almost 3 hours. Brenda was nice to me, she let me use her tube that has cover on the bottom, my butt didn't get wet. Even though the weather was warm, the water is still icy cold and both Brenda and Fred got wet because the tube they used is open at the bottom. We had fun and I want to do it again. It's so relaxing! Gary pulled us with his boat because we were getting cold and hungry.
