Cloudy with a Chance of Squash...

Friday, September 28, 2012      1 comments

It has been cloudy so often for my morning walks, it feels more like living in Seattle rather than Tucson. Mind you we only have a 10% chance of rain, where in Seattle the heavy clouds mean business, instead of just casting a dry dreary pall on ... Read more

Did I Say Fall?

Wednesday, September 19, 2012      1 comments

I must have jinxed us. Maybe I was just a little too happy to wake up to darn close to chilly weather. Or was it the bragging about taking walks in 65 degrees of delightful coolness? Then again, it could have been the dance of joy when the flo... Read more

In my last blog I was only a pound and a half away from my one of my goals - to lose 50 lbs. Today I am 5 lbs away from my goal. A lot has happened since I last wrote, and it is obvious that I comforted myself once again with food. The maj... Read more

Rain, Glorious Rain!

Thursday, July 05, 2012      2 comments

Ah, our Monsoon storms have finally arrived! The desert quickly soaks up the water and has gone green nearly overnight. The heady smell of the creosote bushes perfumes the air and the cooler temps makes me feel more alive and so happy to get ou... Read more
