Oh my goodness has March blown into Arizona! Early morning Emmi and I walk and the air is still, the birds are talking to us and the sun is shining; then it hits! About 9am every morning for the last five days or so the wind has literally howled and it has continued to howl into each night. The first couple days were warm but the last four days have been miserable–cold, wind, and even a smattering of snow!
Saturday morning’s wind brought moody skies.
Our friends Jane and Paul arrived late Wednesday afternoon from Wyoming. We’ve been eating well (of course) doing a bit of sightseeing–we took them up to the Chiricahua National Monument–and just visiting. They are not impressed with our weather–such is southeast Arizona and 4500 feet elevation!
Countertops were measured on Tuesday–yippee–the young man was knowledgeable and quick. It will still probably be another month before we see countertops.
But–it really doesn’t matter. We’ve come to a huge whoa. My number one handyman, cabinet maker, fix anything for me Cowboy is injured. He was working on a motorhome leaking air value and wrenched his shoulder. His right shoulder. This happened Wednesday afternoon late. Bless his heart, he was so incapacitated! It’s hard to dress yourself with one arm, eat with your useless left arm, etc. It’s Sunday and he’s better, not ready to build cabinets but at least he’s not trying to catch Cheerios floating in a bowl of milk with his left hand!!
Jane and Paul were to have left on Friday or Saturday–their offer on a real estate purchase was accepted after they started this trip and they would like to be home for the inspection. Mother Nature didn’t cooperate and the winter storm traveling through Colorado and Wyoming closed all the routes they might have taken to get home. So–we are still enjoying their company and they plan to depart on Monday morning.
Jane and Paul have a golden doodle eight month old puppy–Dally–and she is so, so cute–and puppy wild, Emmi is NOT impressed!
After church (for the first time in a year) we drove to Willcox and ate at La Unica–they have a semi outdoor dining patio with heaters–the food was outstanding and we enjoyed our little outing. And–it’s still windy!
