Saturday night dinning place

I have had these pictures for a while now but just too lazy to post them.
These are in the front parking area..

This the the entrance and years ago people tied up their horses to the railing but this day the lady just brought her's up for every to pet..

This is a rustic little place and has been here for many years, they have capitalized on the western theme...

This is the bar area and notice the horns up top...Upstairs is offices.

Between the bar and family seating is a little fence that totes this saddle..

and a cowboy leaning on a post...

In the woman bathroom...

Arizona 3

Oraibi, a Hopi Village located in in Navajo County, Arizona and is the oldest continuously inhabited community in the U.S. It is believed to have begun between 900 and 1000 A.D. and is located on Third Mesa on the Hopi Reservation. In the 1800s, droughts in the area drove many other Hopi settlements to consolidate with others for survival. By 1890, it’s believed that as much as one-half of the Hopi population resided in the tiny village of Oraibi (called Orayvi by inhabitants).

There are few pictures available today because The residents of Oraibi  ask that you respect their wishes of no photography within the village. You'll find a few craft stands where residents are selling their handcrafted dolls, baskets and pottery. And don't forget to sample their traditional piki bread if you go!

The Oraibi village  was constructed of mud and stone dwellings, clustered together, even stacked on top of one another. Stairs and, more often, ladders were used to gain access to the upper floors.  The estimated population in 1890, the time period in which the following photo was taken, was 900 residents.

Cooking Tidbits

Cooking for one or two always interests me, not only because that is what I do but because I often think of Seniors who cook just for them selves and how hard that would be so when I can learn things that help I get pretty excited. One such thing recently is that you can freeze cheese! I use up cheddar cheese fast enough but fresh Parmesan Cheese not so much.
I learned you can shred fresh Parmesan cheese and put it in small bags and then put all the small bags in a freezer bag. I am going to give it a try.

Around home

Thought I would share a few pictures around home...everything is in bloom right now.
Our circular drive. The wall of white flowers are Oleanders and they grow year round.
This plant is called "Cat's claw" because it has these little claw like feet on the vine that allows it to climb any and everywhere.
 Every spring they bloom these yellow flowers...
This is the east side of my house
and this is the inside of the wall...
It is amazing how something so lush can grow in this heat!
