FROM THE VALLEY

Went back to fulltime work in Dec of 2012 and retired again in Dec of 2013. Still living in one of the Minnesota river valleys, pretty comfortable here. TIRED of the long winter like everyone else I know. Still enjoying life with long time friends and a few very lovely new friends who all enjoy theatre, books, dining out now and then, and traveling. We were able to spend a week in Fla in Jan..it was cool and misty the entire time but we had a great time! then another week in Punta Cana in ...

We were able to spend a week in Fla in Jan..it was cool and misty the entire time but we had a great time! then another week in Punta Cana in March..all sun, warmth and humidity and lovely long beaches to walk on..two miles each day minimum!.. Now have to get back on Spark and update everything! re-read the Spark book, and continue cleaning closets and drawers..am having my bathroom updated for when I grow even older so I can stay here, God willing! so it will be a mess with a crew here in a couple weeks, and I need to have things cleared out for them. that should burn off some calories!

I really don't know which is worse: gardening in the Minnesota climate or the Arizona climate,
As my season is coming to an end (because of the unseasonably hot weather), your is just beginning. I won't be planting anything new now until late September or early October. It usually doesn't cool off here in the Phoenix area until Halloween.

Keep me posted on your garden. I am all into the dirt!
