In the five years we've been coming to Arizona, I've never seen a January this wet and cool (I'd say 'cold', but, well, I'm here to escape the -20+ temperatures of home so to me this is just cool). In previous years we've been in the pool every day, wearing sandals and cropped pants, never a jacket! Not so much this year, but still, it's better than driving on icy roads and shoveling snow. And it's still a nice vacation.
Here's the predominant color this week:
Lloyd and I were in a store and could hear the drum beat of rain on the roof. When we went outside, this beautiful rainbow brightened the day.
The saguaro cactus in our back yard though looked like it was crying in the rain.
Wendy and Randy left for home yesterday, but before they left we managed to spend almost 15 minutes in the pool. The water was heated but it wasn't up to it's usual balmy temperature. Our swim was short-lived.
During a spell between rain showers, Wendy and I went to Surprise Lake and fed the ducks, geese, pigeons, and numerous other birds that hang out there.
And when it was too wet to go outside, we put a couple of puzzles together. The small one has 1000 tiny little pieces and the larger one has 500 much-easier-to-handle pieces.
And that brought us to the end of the week. We had a good time with Wendy and Randy and were sad to see them leave....back to the cold and snow that is home.
Sunny days ahead!
