Exciting Times

Today is the first day of a week's vacation. I had some days that needed to be used before the end of the year. This has morphed into a trip to Las Vegas, leaving tomorrow to drive up there. My friends, Turtle Lady and her DH, will fly in from KY and meet me there. We spend 3 days enjoying Vegas, Baby! and going to a show this time, my first time doing so. I want to explore some around Lake Mead on the way up and stop wherever they want to on the drive back to Phoenix. They will stay here with me for another week and we will explore around here.

This is prompting a major shuffle of stuff around here. Luckily, they are good friends and are used to me and my stuff. Turtle Lady will take over my kitchen. She knows that there is usually no food around here, so a trip to the grocery will be up early on. Then IKEA. Then who knows.

In the shuffle I did find my camera charger and cable, among other things. I have assured TL and her DH that they have free access to my wifi as well as my yarn stash and supplies. Between all of the above the next weeks should be full. Maybe even some pictures included in blog posts, who knows. I'll have a couple of weeks to recover, then Mom flys out on the 20th of January for a visit. You know I'll be clearing and cleaning for that!

    Looks like you have settled into Phoenix. I first came to Phoenix on business almost 20 years ago. The desert kind of sticks to you. When Phoenix was less crowded, it reminded me of California in the early 1980's. Beautiful and unspoiled open space nearby. Different scenery and climates within a couple of hours.

  2. Enjoy your time in Vegas; it's a fun place - for a while. It's so surreal I have to leave after a few days to get back to reality. What show are you going to see? They're all usually spectacular.
    Have fun.
