So, the three-day weekend is almost here! the weeks definitely seem to fly by, don't they?? Tom is getting back late tonight from another "emergency" trip- he left Tuesday morning (he had to get up at 4:15 am, to catch a 6:40 am flight) for Connecticut again, to fix some issues left over from the computer upgrade he just did out there. Apparently the customer thought every issue they've ever had over the past 7 years would magically disappear with a computer upgrade... ??? whatever- anyway, he's on his way back, after a very hectic two days at the site.
I finally updated my picturetrail website with some new house pics, and some pics of our last trip to the Botanic Garden. Check out the New House and Desert Plants albums!!!
Other than that, nothing much is going on around here- One day earlier this week, it was much cooler (only in the high 80s for a daytime high, and lows in the 60s), but the 100+ degree weather is back again. I think now is about when it settles in and doesn't leave till fall. And Mom, you wanted to know- I just checked out weather.com, and there is a "negative" heat index again- temp 100 degrees, heat index 95 degrees. The wind blowing at is 8 mph... so, I'm not sure if it's the wind that does it, but I don't really care! (except that the wind serves to dry everything out that much more...)
We're looking forward to the three-day weekend... No big plans, really- we're going to celebrate my birthday by doing a couple things I've always wanted to do, which are miniature golf and bowling! I can't wait, actually- it should be a fun day!!! And, of course, we'll drive to Maricopa to check up on the house. We might take Sedona to Doggie Park sometime, too- we didn't last Sunday, and she seemed to know somehow that she was missing out- she acted up all morning! And, to carry on the Memorial Day/birthday tradition, I plan on grilling out, making Mom's coleslaw, and having angel food cake with strawberries. Oh, and I wouldn't mind checking out the (cheaper) Native American baskets, rugs, and/or baskets at the local swap meet. It sounds like we have a lot of plans, after all!!!
Have a fun and relaxing weekend!
