just checking in

Hello, thought I’d check in with everyone and see how things are going.  Totally enjoyed my visit with my sister and her guy.  He had never been out west before let alone to my rural community.  We spent many hours driving and he was astounded at how “far” everything was from where I live.  I just laughed and told him I was quite used to it.  He is from New Orleans and they live in a small city outside Tampa so he’s used to everything being ‘round the corner….

We went to the Southern Arizona wine country near Sonoita where we visited a few of the wineries and enjoyed some taste of the area Smile

We had a large family Mexican dinner where my son and family came and spent the day – such fun!

Their last day here we spent at the Sonoran Desert Museum west of Tucson.  This a good place to see the natural vegetation of the area as well as live species of animals (and other creepy, crawly critters) that live in our surrounding desert.  All in all, a very nice couple days and I miss my sister still.

I have spent a little time sewing up some preemie blankets and Christmas stockings. Other than that not much else.

So that’s my update for now…. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Visits from family are nice. Rural life is a lot different than community life. But I prefer the rural life. Chris

Sounds like you had a great time with your sister and her guy - ;)) It's fun when someone sees the desert states for the first time - so much of "nothing" for as far as the eye can see - and the wineries and museaum and family dinner will give him stories to tell when he gets home - ;))

So now that break time is over -
don't forget that Linda and I are doing our "Race" again - join us!! - ;))
