Well, it had to come, it’s been winter in Arizona the last few days. Windy and chilly. Our home in Arizona sits at 4500 feet elevation–we are going to have some chilly days–can’t be avoided. But not as chilly as Montana has been the last few days–14 degrees and lower!
On Facebook I had noticed advertisements from a used furniture store in Douglas. I messaged the store on Thursday to ask if they were open. Yes, someone would be there until 3pm. We arrived at 2pm to find the lights off and the door locked. Anyone want to place bets on how long that place will survive?? So, we joked and said we drove 100 miles round trip for a Dairy Queen blizzard!😆
Friday was one long, long day! I had an appointment for my second and final knee injection. The surgeon kept me waiting almost an hour past my appointment time. His waiting room was the size of a cracker box with all the over scheduled patients sitting on top of each other. Anyone want to place bets as to my ever going back to him for anything??
While waiting for me to finally come out of the doctor’s office the Cowboy searched for restaurants with patios in Tucson–with this surge in omicron cases of covid we had no desire to eat inside a restaurant. He found a Bisbee Breakfast Club close by and that’s where we dined–on their chilly patio with our hands wrapped around cups of hot coffee! We didn’t know the famous Bisbee restaurant had locations in Tucson–the food was great and so was our service!
A quick stop at Costco and a fruitless journey trying to find another used furniture store–it doesn’t exist any longer we are thinking. The traffic on Grant was atrocious and we made a mental note to stay away from that part of Tucson in the future!
To Green Valley we go. Emmi had a veterinarian appointment and I had a small Walmart grocery pickup order. The vet clinic was super busy on this Friday afternoon and we waited about 30 minutes past our appointment time, seeing a new to the clinic veterinarian. We are going to try giving Emmi antibiotics long term to see if we can get rid of this chronic diarrhea.
Finally at about 6pm we were home. Ugh–what a day!!
Saturday we puttered and I cooked making more Christmas candies and an appetizer for a party. Saturday evening we journeyed (it’s not far!) to Dan and Louanne’s for a lovely Christmas party with drinks and delicious snacks! Their house looks so festive–
Someone noticed the rising moon and I stepped outside with Louanne’s phone snapping the above photo and some moon photos that didn’t turn out well.
This is the moon going down Sunday morning over the Dragoons.
Sunday was a low key day–a late breakfast and the Cowboy decided cutting up some of the firewood our caretaker brought us over the summer was in order. Just after noon I retrieved Louanne and we went to the coffee shop where local vendors were having a small bazaar. The rest of the day was spent puttering and relaxing plus walking the pooch.
Life is still good!
