The kitchen cabinets are finished, upper cabinet doors hung–sink works, dishwasher works–now we just wait for the missing section of countertop. Every time I walk into or through the kitchen I say, “I LOVE my new kitchen!”
Wednesday evening we were invited to Linda’s home for dinner with Louanne and Dan. As always Linda prepared a delicious meal and we enjoyed the company very much. The Cowboy helped Linda with her new watering system timer–he didn’t get it right Wednesday night and had to make another service call on Thursday.😁
Thursday Milton and Lucy came for dinner. Milton is our summer caretaker and does a fabulous job making our place look nice and also keeps an eye on the comings and goings in the neighborhood. We enjoyed beef tenderloin, mashed potatoes, salad and asparagus. Dessert was a fabulous chocolate pie–I will say it again–we eat well!
Friday our friends Linda and Jim came to visit–they live in Tombstone year round and we had not seen them in too long due to covid. We had a great visit and enjoyed some of the leftover chocolate pie.
We’ve been packing, putting away the outdoor furniture and decorations and getting rid of excess groceries–donating them to Lucy and Milton! It’s hard to know just exactly how many groceries you will need–we buy our meat in bulk from Costco and I always have a bit leftover when it comes time to depart one house or another. I’m going to attempt to buy groceries by menus this summer and see if I can get closer to having nothing left when we change houses.
Saturday I fought the heat and the ants to work on the water system to some of our trees–they just weren’t getting enough water. The ants won by biting me three times!! But now the trees are getting plenty of water–if Milton can just keep the rats and gophers from eating the trees!!
In the evening on Saturday we dined at Dan and Louanne’s with Milton and Lucy. Good food, good company–and it’s no secret why we gain weight!
And Sunday evening has us in a Tucson hotel–more on that later–all is well!

Your kitchen is gorgeous!! Will you share your chocolate pie recipe 😊🥧?
Chocolate pie is a Pioneer Woman recipe. I’ll try to remember to insert a link in the next blog.
The kitchen is beautiful. I love the wood patterns. You are one lucky woman with a guy like the Cowboy!! Of course you know that already.
I am a lucky woman!
Isn’t it wonderful to have the kitchen of your dreams? It turned out beautifully!
Now I have to convince the Cowboy to remodel the Montana kitchen–probably not happening!
As expected the kitchen is stunning. It will be lovely to come back to in the Fall! That was a lot of friends and meals to wrap up your Arizona time, and you can repeat when you get to Montana 🙂
Yes, I am all ready looking forward to getting back to that kitchen and yes we were very busy socializing those last few days!
