Just dropping by to say hello.
Monsoon season is here - yeah and nay. We did get rain - the first storm was a doozy with winds at 60 mph, swirling dust and downed trees and power lines. We escaped. The second night it was a lovely rain, with thunder and lightning. we don't get much rain or electrical storms here so they are always a treat. I think the best ones ever were in Colorado - even better than the ones over the water, maybe because the air is thinner. Anyway don't know the reason but...
The temps finally dropped but now the humidity is up so even though it's cooler, it's still not comfortable. It's an exciting weather season here in Arizona - Monsoons are joined by haboobs. Haboob, you say you've never heard of it - it's a humungous dust storm - sometimes so bad that you can't even see your hand in front of your face. Clean up stinks.
Had a lovely visit with my niece and her family last week. We met in Tempe for dinner at a place called Culinary Dropout. Had to google it to find out what I was getting us into. It's a huge place, not too far off ASU's campus, and just the kind of place young people love.
No visit to Tempe is complete without a stop at IKEA for the meatballs and the pillows I love. I always stock up on both. It's funny the pillows are cheap, and I do mean cheap, but they are the best. Ray recently convinced me to get one of these My Pillows - $50.00. I listened and I absolutely hate it. Give me my IKEA pillow every time.
Have a busy week coming up. I think I've mentioned that Ray is having one of those milestone birthdays and we've invited friends and family to join in celebration. He always had the notion that he wasn't going to live past 62 - well he's done that and more. Yeah!!!
Enough for now. See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
