my week in pictures

This week was a busy one filled with windstorms, ghost stories, and beautiful interesting things.

I saw more tons of balloons at the dollar store. An entire ceiling full of balloons. I was so distracted I kept forgetting what I had intended to buy....

I saw the Franklin Mountains get obscured in the dust, Yes, there are mountains back there! *achoo*

I stopped (again) to stare at this beautiful old downtown building that I love... and wished that I could have a peek inside...

I hung out with ol' Mr. Boney at the Ghosts915 Paranormal Research Center...

...where I later listened to some very spooky El Paso ghost stories!

I stopped and smelled the (big, beautiful) roses at my Grandparent's house...

And then I admired the blossoms in Concordia Cemetery during our ghost tour... where the yucca and the palo verde are blossoming amongst the graves... they were beautiful.

I saw the El Paso mountain star lit up in blue...

And I got excited when I saw this marquee... and I have tickets!

It was a good week.

I hope that you all had a great week as well!

my week in pictures

Ghosts tours, explorations, wanderings... this is some of the stuff I got myself into this week...

I hung out and helped out at the Ghosts915 Paranormal Research Center

I stopped to admire some beautiful architectural details in Downtown EPTX

Then I fantasized about the magical powers of this mesmerizing golden door

I had some awesome tacos for dinner at the legendary Good Luck Cafe (Est. early 1960's)


I encountered a lot of sandstorms and desert winds


I saw a spooky sunset in Socorro TX

I had some amazing homestyle food with friends at Sofia's Restaurant (a little Socorro gem on Glorietta Rd)

I went to the Golden Eagle Gallery in historic San Elizario TX (featuring over 40 local & regional artists)

 I hunted the ghosts of history in the Old County Jail during the San Elizario Ghost Tour


I was tempted by the opening in this vacant building in Downtown EPTX

I walked through the darkest part of the cemetery during the Concordia Cemetery Ghost Tour

I saw Annabelle's twin at the Bronco Swap Meet (a favorite place to explore on a Sunday-afternoon )
