So we are getting a little break from the Phoenix Valley heat. Just an hour plane ride and it will be the cool California Southern Coast. Not home but hey - almost. Ahhhh! I can feel the cool breeze already. A little bit of business mixed with a lot of fun… It will be cool enough to hike.
I have posted at Layers of Thought before that living in the Sonoran desert in Arizona is like living in a low heat oven during the summer. Its pretty darn warm – today its cooler than normal at a nice 103 degree. With temperatures reaching up to 116 plus, more than several times during the 5 month long summer heat here, it is amazing. I am in awe. Especially of the local cacti. Of course we are all refrigerated here… air conditioned houses, cars, stores, malls, and offices. I’m wondering of course what's it do to our bodies? perhaps for another post.
So maybe I will have some Pacific ocean pictures to post when we get back at the end of next week. Maybe I can finagle some ocean pictures with books….hmmm. So if by chance you try and reach me I will not have access to my computer. Comments will not get posted until I have a few minutes on JD’s. I will get back to each and every comment maybe not as quick as usual, but it will happen. In hope that some are left by you all. I love your comments!
The picture above was taken at a local hiking park here in
Hotsdale Scottsdale in May when the Saguaros are blooming their incredible waxy paper like flowers. JD loves to take pictures of them especially if they have birds on the top.
I leave you with a classic little song that sums up the way I feel about my home:
