This 'vacation' couldn't have come at a better time!
I need a break from some of my stress.
This is one of the pools in the courtyard at the Peppermill in Reno, NV where we are staying. It is GORGEOUS!!!Tomorrow is suppose to be sunny and 75, so while the guys are golfing Michelle and I will be sitting at the pool.

I was up at 2:45 AM today so we could get to the airport in time......hubby missed his turn and thanks to Onstar we arrived in time.
We had a short layover in Las Vegas and while we were there the power was out for about 15 minutes. I've never experienced that before. If it had been out longer it could have been disastrous for many people. Thankfully it was only a minor irritation.
I don't remember what time we landed in Reno, my internal clock does not agree with what the hotel room clock says. I am beat! I do remember that it was 70 and sunny and we were all loving it!
We did some gambling (Kevin and I both played slots and I walked away $60 ahead) and had a couple of drinks. Oh, I think I forgot to mention that Kevin is here for the Men's National Bowling tournament. Today 8 of us flew in, that includes 3 wives/girlfriends.
For dinner we walked across the street and had steaks at Ruby River. They were awesome!

Oh, I feel bad for being so selfish, I almost forgot today is Good Friday. It's a solemn day for Christians and sometimes it's hard to think of it as a good day.
I doesn't seem like Easter because we aren't at home and I won't attend church.
I hope you have a happy and blessed Easter!!!!


  1. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time. I used to live in Reno long, long ago and ate at the Peppermill many times when they were just a restaurant with no hotel. I always loved Reno. Hope the tournament turns out well.

  2. Enjoy that pool. Looks wonderful...I wouldn't mind soaking up some of that sunshine by a pool. warm here but no pool.

    However did go to a Good Friday Service and enjoyed some wonderful music and message. Ending with a Communion Service.

  3. Linda- I am so glad that you have this chance to get away and enjoy a little relaxation. I know you have had so much stress in the last few weeks so this must feel like a Godsend! I know you will miss Easter at home but, guess what- God followed you to Reno, too! xo Diana

  4. Glad you are enjoying yourself. I know someone from Manawa that went down there for the tournament. I think he came down there earlier though.Stay safe.

  5. Oh, I think you forgot something! Your bff! It looks like my prayers are being answered as I have been thinking and praying for a fun and relaxing vacation for you! Save your winnings for Sayner; you may need it!
