It’s warming up in southern Arizona! Next week is supposed to have highs in the low 80’s, which is a little above my tolerance range. So instead of staying here until next Friday, I think we’ll be leaving on Monday and heading up to the Sedona area,where the highs are supposed to be in the mid-70’s and lows around 40. We are going to an ALiner gathering at Dead Horse Ranch State Park from Feb. 12-15, so we’re just going to arrive a little early and go to the free BLM land for a few days first.
Today I picked up a couple month’s worth of mail via General Delivery at the post office in Buckeye, then made a Wal-Mart run. SO many people at Wal-Mart! I would not ordinarily shop there on a Saturday but if we’re leaving here on Monday, I had to go out and pick up the mail today, and I like to consolidate the trips to save gas.
Yesterday I had company, an old friend from my dog show days who used to live at North Pole, Alaska and now is in Casa Grande, AZ. We had a good long chat and she brought a delicious lunch…chicken salad roll-ups in croissant dough and a yummy dessert of pound cake, lemon curd and fresh blueberries and sliced strawberries. And I got to keep the left-overs, too!
