Our southern holiday is ending....

 It's been a beautiful time... we hate to leave...
We're just thankful we have been blessed with the privilege of having our little home here.

The other side of the fence


On the other side of our fence...
Stands what is left of a Saguaro...
There is no life left in it...but I love looking at it...
It is unique, has character...

Makes me think...
what will people say of me...when my life is gone....

My knitting basket...

Last summer... 
I disposed of all my yarn...
It had been many years since I had the time to knit a project...

This past month I have started to replenish my yarn...
I found this easy pattern on the internet...
so I'm making them for all my girls...
I still have a couple more to do!!

Plus I have been crocheting ...

These pot scrubbers... 
I had cut the material to make them about 5 years ago...
and finally one more to crochet and I should have all the netting used up!

Patio Sale..

Every fall and spring, the parks have patios sales.... 
When the snowbirds open up...they have 'treasures' they know longer want...
in the spring they have 'treasures' they know longer need... 

I wasn't planning on buying anything...
I like having 'just what I need' in my small space...

but then I saw this...
mom had one of these...
it reminded me of her ...
and the years this was the only tree mom and dad put up
I thought....
then I bought
I cleaned it all up...I have the perfect spot in our trailer....
It's ready for when we finally
have Christmas in Yuma!

(now I just have to figure out where I'll store it:)

Snowbirds...

I don't think Hubby and I can really be called snowbirds yet....as we leave the snow ...but always go back to it. Someday we will be able to spend the whole winter down here.

This the was first year that we had to open a place up, after a hot summer. When we left in the spring...we did all the things seasoned 'snowbirds' told us to do...and when we arrived everything was in good order. The only problem we had was Hubby forgot the combination to the shed ...so we had to saw the lock off. 


Life down here slows down..
and it feels like we can actually live... 
the internet connection in the park, is not the best..
so I don't have a lot of computer time...
Being here gives one time to reflect.....
On where our life has been and where should it go...
We get to sit in our back patio and watch the hummingbirds feed...
listen to their songs
We have been blessed abundantly...
Well Hubby bought a little pocket camera...
It takes pretty good pictures......
Well I have to run... so I can sit and 
do what we do best down here...

Not much:)

Its time...

Winter arrived early this year...
I am Canadian....and should be use to winters
but the older I get the more I dislike the cold.....
 It may be pretty...but don't you think it's time...
To head south for a little getaway...
We are off to warm sunny weather for a bit..
