Richard and I have been suffering with a case of the summer doldrums. Tubac, where we live, is a seasonal town. People come here in the winter to enjoy the mild climate. They depart for the summer to avoid the blazing heat. Summer here can be pretty dull. There are very few social activities. We’ve been spending most of the summer cooped up in our […]

Texas Rangers

Texas Rangers

I  knew it was going to be a glorious Sunday when I stepped outside for an early morning dog walk and I was  met by the stunning Texas rangers along our driveway. They were in full bloom.   I know they’re just some flowering shrubs. But, I find this rare burst of color in the desert to be overwhelmingly joyful. It’s monsoon season and we’ve been lucky to have a few really […]

Birthday Memories

Birthday Memories

  Sometimes things happen so perfectly that it’s hard to believe they are coincidental. Yesterday morning, Richard suggested we go antique shopping. His birthday is this week and he wanted to find a birthday present for himself.  We decided to go to the 22nd Street Antique Mall in Tucson. We spent hours hunting through the mall for some treasures, […]

Merry Murder Mysteries

Merry Murder Mysteries

Yeah, the Holiday season is here. To get in the Holiday mood, I’ve been spending my evenings settled in front of our fireplace with some Christmas cookies, a bit of port, and a few light hearted Christmas mysteries. I’m an avid reader of mysteries. My favorites are classic English mysteries from the 1930’s and 40’s and vintage American detective stories by authors like Dashiell Hammet, Raymond Chandler, Ellery Queen […]

A Summer Solstice Morning Walk

A Summer Solstice Morning Walk

Either Richard or I get up early each morning to take our dog Rain for a walk. Today we decided to enjoy taking a walk  together. We got started just as the sun was rising above the mountains.  We are very fortunate to live near the Tubac Golf Resort. It’s our little Central Park, a true desert oasis.   It […]
