More little things.

Spent the morning and part of the afternoon watching NASCAR races. First the truck race and then the Cup race. They were snowed out yesterday. #18 came in 2nd again. In the last four races he has been 3rd once and 2nd three times. No races next week.
One thing about watching them during the commercials I get a lot done.
Pretty much caught up on everything but the mail. Tomorrow we'll pick it up and also pick up my glass for my stained glass window.
Right now the corned beef is cooking waiting for the cabbage to be added. The cabbage it took three times to the grocery store to get.
Just remembered something we bought for someone else in Mazatlan. Did not bring it in the house, it must still be well hidden in the motorhome. Can't imagine where though. Will have to try to find it tomorrow when we take the RV to the RV Doc.
By the end of the week Vegas is supposed to be up into the low 80's guess summer is coming, hopefully not too soon.
Bill's jasmine plant is really growing well. It doesn't seem to have been bothered by the cold winter here.
Some of the lantana plants are full of flowers and some are really scraggly and one or two died over the winter. So need to do some work outside.
I framed and hung the picture I bought right after we got to Mazatlan. It is a companion to one I bought last year. Bill made the frames years ago, they are Maple Burl. The pictures are much prettier than they look, had to get a decent picture of them. Tango dancers with the backdrop of one of the restaurants in the Plazuela Machado.
Also got all my Christmas yardage I bought put away. Forgot I got so much. Need to start thinking on what to use it in. [After I finish my window and make quilt for soon to be born great granddaughter.]
Grrrr my Nook just died, right in the middle of a good book. So ran up to Barnes and Noble and bought a new one. It has to charge for four hours before setting it up. So I brought the book up on my laptop to continue reading it. All was fine for a bit - THEN I reached a point where the pages refuse to turn. I just finished Chapter 29 - it will not go to Chapter 30. Turned it off, turned it back on. Now it won't go past Chapter 2.  I'm going to get out my ice cream and a spoon and sulk until the new Nook is charged.
