Chilly morning

Saturday, October 23, 2010      4 comments

The thermometer is just below 40 this morning. We were thinking of participating in the community yard sale today but I am glad now we did not. It would have been really chilly setting up out there. We decided to do the yard sale in FL when w... Read more

A little poetry slander there but aren't the trees unusually beautiful this year. Here in the Blue Ridge area of the Appalachian mountains they seem brighter than usual. We also have lots on the ground already and it seems early for that but w... Read more

We are home safe and sound but really tired. I think the hardest part is not sleeping well in different beds most nights. We're thinking trips of shorter duration might be better or longer ones staying in the same place. Today is laundry ... Read more

Still not adapted to the time change here in AZ but doing better. We are back in Phoenix and are together with family. Las Vegas has grown and is huge, noisy, exciting, wonderful and we all have tired feet from all the walking but have won... Read more

We went from one end of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to the other. We did lots and lots of walking and are all exhausted. We have not yet adapted to the 3 hour time difference and although my body says it is 12:45 a.m. my brain does not. ... Read more

Fun morning

We were at the apple festival about 9 this morning just as it was opening. It was busy but not super crowded until we were ready to leave about 11. I found my apple dumpling - fresh baked with a really light pastry. RB and I shared one so it ... Read more

I decided to get a haircut this morning which puts the apple festival off until tomorrow but that is OK. I went out about 9:30 and got that done and then stopped at Walmart and the supermarket and headed back home. This festival is a BIG thing... Read more
