Painting poolside from life using Art Rage. Finesse is many failures away, but the process is fascinating enough to keep me at it.
Renting the car yesterday perked us up. We spent the morning exploring the neighborhood and familiarizing ourselves with what restaurants are where, what condo developments look like us, where's the drug store, the super market, the services you need to survive in this world. Summerlin Nevada looks like a suburb where you could live comfortably as long as you had pounds of moisturizer and Blistex in every pocket of every jacket and pair of shorts. While the extreme of the desert dryness has been a shock, I haven't had one wave of lightheadedness from my chronic vertigo since we got here in spite of eating over salted restaurant fare. This is something to think about. Dry skin? Chronic vertigo?
Tonight, my youngest son and his wife are joining us for the weekend. We're looking forward to hugs and laughs. Their room is adjoining ours. We have a lot of catching up to do.
