Home is where it is cold....

Do I sound like I am complaining...? Well somewhat I am. Here it is May 2nd and we are still having some snow patch on the ground. We arrived two days ago. (Nancy's Birthday, Happy Birthday Nancy!!!) and it was nice to be in my bed. Getting my space back. I had a great and special time for six weeks with my wonderful family and the best of friends. Some marvelous memories and those are going to be highlights in my darkest days. So even though the temperatures are still under 50 degrees F. and I am far from putting any flowers in the planters it is nice to be home. I am ready to work!!!I do have to talk about our last hike in Sedona. It was such a good ending for my trip. We went back to Cathedral Trail. Curt needed to experience this. So we stopped and got some wine, cheese, fruit, bread... The essentials for a religious experience a top a magical mountain at .... Sunset!.
We were a bit concerned about getting down from the steep hill in the dark so we had to time it right. Just after the sun disappeared behind the mountain and the sky turned all pink we went down. We arrived at the bottom by the car when we were just in darkness with a gorgeous indigo sky with one single star showing us the way we had been. The sound of a frog saying goodbye for now was chanting in the background. The earth was still warm and sweet smelling and all was at peace. I will remember that.
