Wow, I can't believe how fast time flies (when you're having fun).  I've had things to say in my Blog, but just haven't found the time to sit down and write it.  I'm sure that never happens to any of you, my friends.

We had the last of our visitors, for a while anyway, during our grandkids Spring Break.  It was so nice to have the two girls and their mom for a week.  Did a lot of fun things, and the weather wasn't too hot for them, at least the first part of the week - was in the 70's, but 80's by the day they left.

We went to Rooster Cogburn's Ostrich Ranch, but stupid me, I took pictures of the kids feeding everything except the ostriches!

Here are the donkeys waiting/begging for food:


The manatees were fun:

The prairie dogs went crazy when you threw them peanuts:

These were the goats begging for something to eat:

Another day we went to an abandoned mining/ghost town.  Goldfield is pretty much kept like it was in the olden' days.

Their last day here it was in the 80's and we spent a good part of the day at our community swimming pool:
As for knitting, I should finish my Ribbon Street Cowl this weekend.  I'm hoping it's not too tight to get over my head!  I think I'll knit another one right away, as I love the pattern and it's an easy knit.  Good "gifting" projects.

There are two knitting groups just getting started in Maricopa and I have been going to them.  They're nothing like the ones I enjoyed in Graham, but I'm sure they will improve as time goes on.

Going out to a nursery this afternoon, but the temperature is supposed to be 101 today, so I'm sure we won't be staying outside long.   Although we are getting acclimated.  It's been in the 90's now for several weeks and we can handle that just fine.  It helps that the humidity is in the low teens.

That's all for now, and I'll try to be back more often.

  1. Hi Darlene... nice to hear from you. I get asked about you at group, so I'll tell them to check here for updates. We are finally getting a week of warm weather, forecast is for 80 by the weekend. Just hope it lasts for awhile! We are finally getting some pots planted with annuals, putting them in our little front-side patio where they'll be watered with the sprinklers and we can see them from the dining room window. Let me know when you plan to visit up north!
