Beautiful Easter Sunday walk....

 The skies were absolutely beautiful.  It was breezy, warm and deserted.  Didn't really see anyone else, which is nice, because I can just let Tiah off her leash so she can run.
 So may plants are starting to bloom and coming back to life.
 I saw this, and thought well, I'll take a picture, it turned out better than I thought it would.
 I had to take a picture of this.  If you remember, last fall I took pictures of the ground that had dried after a heavy rain we had.  It was cracked.  Well, look what's growing out of the cracks now.

A swirl in the red sand from a rain storm and had dried in this interesting shape.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Day.  I went to Church with my Dad, Mom and my kids and grandkids.  It was a wonderful, inspiring meeting.  Then we all went to Chuck A Rama to eat.  Everyone had a good time, all talking and laughing.  One of those rare times when everyone is in a good mood and enjoying each others company.  I left a little early with my parents because my Dad, who is still having a difficult time, needed to go home and rest.  I went home and Tiah and I both napped then I took her on our hike.  Unfortunately on the way home my car broke down.  Luckily I was able to make it home to my garage, but I think a new car is in my future tomorrow.  I think my old gal has given up the ghost.  Guess I won't be going to work tomorrow.  I've had a feeling for awhile now that the time had come for a new vehicle, so I'm not to surprised.
Tex, I promise to leave my blog alone for awhile.  :))

I'm glad you enjoyed the day with your family. Sorry about the old car...mine is on it's last leg too, but I hope it gives me a couple of more years.

Isn't that interesting how grass has grown in the cracks? Sometimes nature is absolutely amazing.

So glad your family get-together was a good one.
