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

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

Yesterday I baked oatmeal cookies and I had allowed myself one but if I am being honest I really ate two! RB was at my elbow as I slid them off the pan and I don't know how many he wolfed down. They are now safely in the freezer except for two... Read more
