10 Reasons Why We"re HAPPY this NEW YEAR!

10. As the year comes to a close, the finance industry lost 58 percent of its value, my 403c is all in federal bonds; 9. Both my children are safely entrenched in college; 8. Gas went from $4 per gallon to $1.45, and I own a huge F-150; 7. We received the title to our home, after 25 years here,... Sign in to see full entry.

Phoenix Sky Harbor

We're sitting on the plane waiting to take off. The pilot says clear skies to Des Moines, and 20 degrees. I feel as though I have spent ten days in rehab. Taking off, wish us luck. More when we land. Sign in to see full entry.

Day 10 in the Desert - Clear Flight Weather, ETD 7 45 PM

Sunny hot and luscious! I sat in the sun this morning for five minutes only, interrupting my meditation to clean the guest room (mother-in-law apartment) do bedding, towels etc. I was selected to cook oatmeal, and I snuck a leftover crust of last night's French bread au jus beef sandwiches, put...

Day 9 in the Desert, Sun Sun Sunday in Paradise

My other little brother and his son flew into Tucson last night from Des Moines, as planned to spend time with Mama. Now my daughters and I can go home tomorrow. I accompanied my brother in his pickup, to the airport to get the travellers. They were walking down the ramp as we entered the gate B... Sign in to see full entry.

Desert Day 8 Con't - Sun Peaking Through the Clouds

When I got to the breakfast table, everyone else had eaten, including my girls. I had before me a full pitcher of freshly squeezed OJ, oranges from the tree in front of the house. Mmm. The sun was hidden, so we took another one-third mile walk in the desert. Jenna, friend of the family, went to the... Sign in to see full entry.

Day 8 in the Desert, Snow, Sun and Lots of Fun

Last night we had a visitor, a friend of the family who lives in Northern Arizona. So, we grabbed the guitar and passed it back and forth vying for her attention, my brother and I, like two schoolboys. It snowed yesterday and rained, but no accumulation; quite cold today but I notice the sun outside... Sign in to see full entry.

Day 7 - Snow in the Desert

The fire in the fire pit that we nursed, smoldering along for a day, blossomed into a roaring blaze last night after Christmas fried chicken dinner. We put on log after log, and tore ourselves away from the warmth of the back patio just long enough for a one-third mile walk down to the mail box and... Sign in to see full entry.

Day 6 in the Desert: The Sergeant Dog

Best Christmas ever! My nanogenerian mother on the couch to my left, and my daughters to my right in front of the tree. My brother and his wife were able to finish up the business week, and with the help of my daughters' shopping skills, get a wonderfully wrapped display of gifts for everyone. The...

Day 5 in the Desert: Return of the Sun

Yesterday I applied for a job in the Obama-Biden Department of Education. Sitting with my mother all day, we were talking about how nice it would be if I could get a job there. I'd been telling her about an article in the papers how the O-transition team were wading through 330,000 applications. I'd... Sign in to see full entry.

Rain in the Desert

Yesterday's clouds were the leading edge of a storm system that moved into the desert last night. It started raining about 3 00 AM and has been since. I lay in bed reading until 10 00 AM when my daughter texted me to come up to the kitchen. Our nursing assistant duties begin about then, but Mama... Sign in to see full entry.
