October 12 - 18, 2015, AZ

Wednesday, October 14.  It feels good to be getting things cleaned up and set to be lived in for the winter.  I've connected with some friends and have talked with lots of folks while out walking around.  

Yesterday, I took inventory and got the clubhouse supplies restocked.  I can't believe that someone stole napkins of all things.  I don't get it.

I went to see the movie, "The Intern" starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway with .connie, Jim and Jan.  I thought it was quite entertaining and a good story about a 70 year old man who goes back to work as an intern in a large startup corporation.
My big project his week has been cleaning up the yard, spending a couple of hours each morning and working my way from front to back.  This morning, I had a major allergy attack when I trimmed the 2 Texas Sage shrubs that had grown a good 2 feet over the summer.  

I also got my oil changed today but was unable to retrieve the keys that fell in the hole on the console - they would charge at least $50 to retrieve them.

Saturday, October 17.  As you can tell, I'm getting back in the swing of things here in Arizona and I'm not writing nearly as much.  I've been connecting with friends, most of whom were gone for the summer too, so it is fun to hear their stories and to share adventures.  Little by little, I am getting the house and yard cleaned up.

My dear niece, Monica got married in a private ceremony in Sedona on Thursday.  I'm so happy that she found the man of her dreams and I wish them a long and happy life together.

Nan, Loren, Monica, Dale,  and Scooter

I haven't cooked in days.  Friday was the TGIF pot luck at the clubhouse, yesterday was dinner at Jim and Jan's with Chuck and Kathy, Connie, and Kathy K - a fun and enjoyable time.
