Have I ever mentioned how busy my life is? How very ironic that it takes a public blog to highlight just how busy my life is. I try not to think about it, but whaddya do.
So let’s rewind a bit to cover the highlights.
August 1 I went to Phoenix for work and had the privilege of meeting up with some old friends, the fabulous Bob and Michele Olsen from Mesa. What a treat. It was only spending time with them for lunch that made up for the horrendous 110 degree temperatures in Phoenix.
A week later and I met Kellie Forbes who owns a fabulous bead store in Sandy. Kayla and I went down there and had the greatest, amateur jewelry-making times of our lives. I made this necklace. I did! All by myself, threading all of these strands of beads. Who knew.
Kayla made a very pretty, delicate blue necklace and bracelet. I will blog about Kellie’s store more when I get the pictures uploaded. Needless to say, we had tons of fun there.
On Aug 12th, I took a group of 28 up to first meadow on Tympooneke at 11:00 pm at night to look at the Perseids meteor shower. The sky was clear all day until about 9 o’clock at night and then the winds blew in some serious clouds which made the shower watching a little prohibitive. Nevertheless, we had lots of glowsticks and snacks and such, so we laid out under the sky until about 1:30 AM before heading home. I saw three meteors during that time. I love doing this every year. Even if you do not see showers its heckuva lot of fun just to be out there in the dark and cold with a bunch of people.
On August 15, Jeff and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary! 21 years imagine that. I am still alive and so is Jeff. Our marriage is a success! 😉 We celebrated by making fun of each other and then heading up to Midway with Kellie and Thayne for a weekend time of relaxation. We got back this afternoon. Last night I was looking at the gold course that our condo overlooks when a white-tailed fox slowly loped onto the golf trail and slowly made its way into the center area with some small brush. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera at the time so I missed it. But so cool! A fox in the wild.
Midway has a house we call the Hobbit house. It is so cute, with its thatched roof and delicate gardens. I finally got a picture of it today.
How cute is that?
We went to Memorial HIll after that. We’ve always been curious about this hill. It overlooks all of the hot spring holes (I prefer to call them spring geodes) that dot the area, especially around Zermatt. Memorial hill has the posted names of all of those people who died while in the service, it had all of the different wars and conflicts. The memorial is quite stunning. And the views from the top of the hill were super.
Tomorrow school starts. Life always gets busier when that happens. Did I mention my life was already busy?
