We are usually still in Montana this time of year—one year we headed to Mexico right after Thanksgiving but that’s the earliest we’ve ever headed south. We’ve been told December is the coldest month of the year in Arizona and if the last few days of November were any indication, December could be cold! It was 32 degrees this morning and we were very thankful for our warm, snug house! Sunday a bitter, cold north wind blew all day—when walking Emmi I was bundled up as if I were still in Montana!
We are still puttering—I’m getting ready to teach my first yoga class on Tuesday—loading music onto my iPod and for once iTunes cooperated—amazing! I’ve also been working on sequences for the class—to say I’m a touch nervous would be an understatement!
Michael is making steady progress with the cabinets—each cabinet must be taken apart, cut to fit the space, re-glued and then hung. It’s very, very time consuming but so worth it when you consider the cost of new cabinets.
When I graduated from high school, Mom and Dad gave me a beautiful watch—I’ve worn one since then. When working as a nurse, of course I wore a watch. So many people these days depend on their phones for telling time but I still prefer my watch and Thanksgiving Day the battery in it died. I just wasn’t in the mood to travel to Wickenburg until today—who knew there was a little jewelry store in Wickenburg—they fixed me right up!
At Safeway I gathered a few groceries before stopping at Donna and Barry’s to drop off some mail for them. Back home I opened the latest Walmart box which contained two huge rolls of contact paper—it’s been a long, long time since I used contact paper. The shelving in these cabinets has seen some wear and I thought contact paper would make the shelves not only look better but make them easier to keep clean. Well—by the time I had three shelves lined I had wrapped contact paper around my head, said a few choice words and wondered why in the world I thought this was a good idea! Geez!
Sunset puts a glow on our mountains.
