When I started fitness walking in 2013, I would go out at 5 a.m. during the Summer - that's the coolest time of the day.  And don't go thinking I'm an early bird or anything, because as soon as I got home, I would go right back to bed.  Used to work at night, you know.  ha

Of course we go out at about 6am but it’s really pleasant at that time of day nearly all year long.

My sister did that also, when she lived in Mesa, then Yuma.  You get all your stuff done early, so you can stay in later when it is hot.  I wouldn't go back to Phoenix because there are too many people!  When I grew up in Phoenix, the northern border of the town was about Union Hills, the sheep herders would go across the desert north of that.  I love the desert, but there are too many people in Phoenix-LOL!

Yeah, and as kids, we use to see how far we could walk barefoot on the asphalt before our feet started burning. (Yes, I know, there is something wrong with me-ROTFL)

When we first moved to Phoenix, all we had was a swamp cooler.

I could go on and on-LOL!

Ah, that Arizona pioneer spirit!  Give me Johnny Appleseed's applejack (hard cider) any day.

Quilting is going great.

Thanks for the picture.  Bet it looks great on your bed.  Do you have other projects waiting in the wings?

I do. I am going to be quilting my Pollinate wallhanging next. Hopefully this weekend I will start it. This one will be a custom quilting project instead of a pantograph.

I'm sure you will do it justice.  Look forward to seeing it quilted.

Thank you!  I basted it this morning. Now to appliqué it to the background before quilting.

Wow Laura, what a huge relief off your mind and that of your kids too. Best wishes as you move forward with treatment.  hugs

Just hope you get to feeling better. (((HUGS))) Praying

Thanks Mel.  I do appreciate the prayer warriors in my life.  I am behaving myself, wearing my brace the faithfully and slowing down and trying to be more diligent about what I'm doing and haven't fallen since breaking my wrist. 

My feet are as bad, if not worse, with neuropathy which really messes with my already compromised balance .  It is difficult for me to stand (in one place) very long without my semi numb feet going "to sleep" making walking and balancing difficult.  I sure wish there was something I could find that would help even a bit.

Hi all!

I went to Denton TX last weekend to attend my sister's in person graduation from North Texas University with her Master's in Library Science.  It was a nice weekend and it was such a delight to walk into the open stadium with my 89yo mom and to watch her reaction to seeing all of the chairs and platform set up on the field.  She even admitted she was so very glad she decided and made the effort to attend.  It was so very worth it for me to see her and my sister enjoy it as much as they each did.

The day after we returned DJ came home from school for 3 weeks before he returns to summer school in Atlanta and preparing to be a student researcher during his fall semester.  He's already been complaining about the heat and humidity and his friends who are well used to it are just laughing at him saying just wait until the real summer months!  He wants us to come visit him again during the summer but we sure are not excited about that during those months.  

Due to my broken wrist I haven't been sewing (doctor said "No" after surgery.  But I might try a bit this next week as I really miss it.  My 6 week follow up appointment with the surgeon is in less than 2 weeks so I may "push" it just to try and get back to what I long to do.  I have stuff I want to get on with!!
