It was good to be back home in North Ranch with Michael and Emmi. I arrived in Phoenix at Sky Harbor airport right at 5pm Friday evening—not a good time for the evil Phoenix traffic. But luck was with me and I cruised right along with only one minor slow down as I approached I-17 from Highway 101.
Saturday was the bi-annual North Ranch garage sale—we both found a few treasures but nothing big—this spring sale is small compared to the one in the fall. I spent the rest of the day cleaning the motorhome—we have visitors coming!
Our friends Jane and Rich arrived late this afternoon to spend some extended time in our motorhome out in the backyard. Prior to marrying Michael I lived in Powell, WY—Jane was one of the nurses at the hospital and Rich worked in the lab. When I divorced, Jane, Rich and their two children Jonathan and Elizabeth took me into their circle—welcoming me with such open arms. Lately life hasn’t been kind to the two of them and we offered them a warm weather respite. They are huge baseball fans and will attend some spring training games while here.
The cowboy has been painting and Emmi is just hanging out. Her world was turned upside down today when Jane and Rich arrived bringing Hunter (a cocker spaniel) and Lacy (a mixed breed).
And, the cowboy treated me to breakfast this morning at the Ranch House up in Yarnell—I could get used to that but would have to buy new jeans!!
