Ladies Trip

The Cowboy doesn’t often pick up the camera and take photos. While I was in Tucson he took these two photos–good ones–moon going down over the Dragoon Mountains.

On Sunday morning in the pouring rain Louanne and I headed to Tucson for an overnight stay and shopping. The rain followed us to Tucson but was much lighter and by noon gone completely. At home, the rain continued to fall all day and by days end we had over an inch of rain–should have some gorgeous wildflowers this spring!

Louanne and I shopped and shopped on Sunday. We briefly stopped to enjoy the best shrimp tacos at one of the numerous taco spots in Tucson–Toro Loco–that taco was spectacular! We enjoyed our day, Louanne and I are extremely compatible–easy keepers as we say! When we tired of shopping we checked into our Airbnb which while centrally located left a lot to be desired in neighborhood and cleanliness. In the evening we ventured out again to have dinner at Caffe Torino.

And here’s where the story becomes funny. Earlier in the day I had made a reservation for 5pm at Caffe Torino located not too far from our Airbnb. When I Googled the restaurant to find directions I realized it was WAY out north. Off we went with plenty of time. When we got to the restaurant almost 30 minutes later they could locate no reservation for us but could seat us. I went out to the truck, got my phone and re-dialed the number I had called earlier to make a reservation. Yes, Caffee Torino had my reservation, it was 5pm, was I running late???  Well–there are TWO locations for Caffee Torino and we had driven miles out of our way. We laughed, drank our wine and enjoyed an amazing dinner. We are easy keepers.

Monday we enjoyed our coffee which I had to make in a french press–haven’t done that in a long time–and some lemon poppy seed scones I had made. We shopped a bit more and enjoyed another fabulous meal at Eclectic–which by the way has a pet friendly patio. It was time to head for home and a slower pace of life where the Cowboy had been hard at work applying texture to the remaining section of living room ceiling and walls. Emmi and the Cowboy were glad to see me as I was them.

Tuesday I spent the day painting door jams and a door. The Cowboy is a bit under the weather but he did manage to get some of the door trim measured and cut. Wednesday we made a run to Sierra Vista for door paint and a Walmart grocery pickup.

Visitors are arriving tomorrow–they’ve been in Mexico in their fifth wheel for several months and are heading home to Oregon. The last time they were here was in December of 2017–the house and property looks a bit different now than then!

While Sarge and Sarah were here Sarah, Emmi and I took a late afternoon walk–I posted a photo very similar to these but I like the ones Sarah took and sent to me–taken with her iPhone, no editing–gorgeous!

  1. My aunt moved to Tucson in the 1940’s… had Arizona Sunset magazine sent to my mom for years. Your photos make me think of those days… beautiful!


  2. Sounds like a fun girlfriend little vacation, except the shopping part. Boy do I dislike shopping. Which I guess explains my very limited wardrobe…haha! Beautiful sunset photos!! Love Emmi and the puddle reflection in the photo.


    1. I LOVE to shop–but only if I have things in mind–I wanted some curtains, rugs, towels, etc. for the house and found those. Louanne had some things she was looking for so we shopped and shopped some more.


  3. Love the pictures! Sure hope Emmi is closer to you than it looks. Would hate to see a coyote come running through and grab her.
