Phoenix Heat


These photos are definite signs that I am no longer in Washington. Maybe it's the palm trees .... desert .... or incredible amounts of sun!!!! Check, check, and check!


Arizona Center


Getting to this lovely sunny place was definitely an adventure. I would pass on re-living my trip to the airport in the future considering the amount of stress associated with it. I left my ticket at home (paper ticket necessary to fly), so I panicked and lucky turned around after 15 minutes to see construction was going on with my exit off the highway and required a detour. Ohhhh, how horribly I deal with stress. Hubby tried to "teach" me on handling it better in the future, gotta love him! But, just let me PANICK! Hehe

Well. I made my flight and am happy to report I am on vacation for a week but can't quite get in that mode! I arrived in Phoenix and have been dying in the heat.

How was I born and raised in Texas humidity again???

I was super proud of myself (and my mom would be too) to hop on the light rail and check out downtown. Then, a colleague met me for a fabulous lunch on the patio, full mist and all! I wanted to relax in the hotel A/C, but I got vetoed and happily so, it was delightful!

I will be pretty quiet this week, so happy Sunday everyone :)

that sure does sound stressful! I'm glad you caught your flight on time!
It's funny how easily and quickly we adjust to our climate and forget what it's like elsewhere! Enjoy the sun : )

i know what you mean about stressful traveling! we waited for a shuttle from the airport for 1 hour!! it was only suppossed to take 15 minutes. i kept telling myself to be patient...but it was so difficult!

oooh, the heat! i went to DC a couple of weeks ago and we had to walk miles in the 90 degree heat! I was sweating profusely and kept wondering why had to be so hot! i do not do well in the heat, ha!
