Despite the critters, we're loving our new life. No regrets! We don't miss the extreme heat and the horrid haboobs. Craig spends his downtime sitting on the patio with binoculars watching quail, coyotes, and the occasional golfers. We're out in the sticks, but we don't mind.
When we get hungry, we stop at Lupe's for enchiladas or Bubb's Grub. We stopped at Bubb's Friday night and managed to scoot right into a booth. It was Friday Fish Fry! Wow! Next Friday's dinner is already planned.
On the way out the door, I stopped to take a photo of something familiar. I can't say I've ever seen one of these in real life.
It's a MAJOR award!
We're about halfway through unpacking boxes. We took a break from work yesterday to run errands. On the way to pick up a water softener to be installed this morning, we stopped at World Market to look around. We were thrilled to find these rattan chairs with white cushions for 50% off. Almost free! Think of how much money I saved by buying those?
Later in the afternoon, I noticed this gorgeous rainbow in the distance while I was relaxing on the sofa.
I may need that pot of gold so we can finish all these projects!
We walked out in front of the house just in time to see the end of a gorgeous Arizona sunset from the middle of the street. Anytime we emerge from our cave, we meet more neighbors. It's amazing and such a change from the Phoenix burbs. We've been here five days and already know more people than we met during the last seven years in the old hood.
