PLUSES AND MINUSES

Posted in childrenweatherYippee! 

Glad to be back in Arizona. On the plus side: the temperature in The Valley (aka Phoenix) is to be 74 degrees today. On the minus side: the weather qualities just below hazardous– not the best for someone like me, who has a couple of lung issues from an early childhood fungal infection, which scarred my lungs.

We loved visiting our kids and grandkids in Michigan and Ohio. That was, of course, the plus side. On the minus side, the temperatures ranged from -3 all the way up to a balmy 15 degrees.

 

Holiday Fun with The Grands!

My husband and I flew from Arizona into full on winter in the Midwest but the pull of the grandchildren remains strong.  Happy New Year to all!

In December my husband and I volunteer to wrap and deliver gifts for a San Pedro Kiwanis project. (He’s a member, I just help out.) Here we are wrapping away.
