We have been here for almost two weeks now and it is time to be thinking of going home. We have had such a nice time with my sister Cindy and her husband Rudy. They live north of Phoenix and this is the view I see as I sit on their patio.
Soaking up the sun... Chicago has been gray this winter (as most of the winters are) and I have a hard time without the sun, maybe a lack of vitimin D (which I take) but it still seems to affect my energy level, so to sit here in the sun just makes me happy.
I find the desert to be beautiful and especially this year with all the rain the West has had, it is green and lush.
My mother also came from Minnesota and enjoyed staying here for a couple of weeks. I am so grateful to have these two lovely women in my life... my mother and sister. Each day as the guys head out for the golf course, we say "well what shall we do today"... and the answer is usually the same, we are content to stay here and visit.
We have just sat and talked... caught up on life in gereral. We have solved world problems, we have talked ailments, we have shared what the Lord has been doing in our lives, discussed and quoted scripture, laughed and walked down memory lane. It is what we as women do best, share our lives and hearts with each other. There is nothing in life better than that...

Oh ya, and we did a little (very little) three wheelin'
Even the rain is beautiful here with a double rainbow...
My husband will miss the sun and his reading time...
We leave for home tomorrow... it has been a renewing of the soul and I am ready to get busy with life again. The shop is waiting for a good spring cleaning and I am ready for spring!
