Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

I've been AWOL, but I'm BACK!

Well, I BARELY survived the first two weeks of school.  My bronchitis kicked in over Labor Day and I had to stay home Tuesday and REST.  I didn't get out at all that weekend.  Just stayed home and rested.  I straggled into school on Wednesday, locked my keys in the classroom, and had to run to the office to get a master key.  OYE VEI!  I honestly don't remember much about that day.  By Thursday, I was feeling better, and by last Friday, I was EXHAUSTED.  Our daughter and I did go to the Palm Springs certified organic famers' market yesterday so buy fresh produce.  It was our first time there and I really enjoyed all the pesticide-free items!  I bought a shot of wheatgrass, chugged it, and carried on for the rest of the day.  Oh, then I bought my VITAMIX at COSTCO.  I had attended classes over the summer, so that paycheck went for the VITAMIX, but I'm so happy I bought one!  I made my first smoothie yesterday and I've been making one every day now.  We are FINALLY done with nearly 3 weeks of thunderstorms here in the desert and we are drying out.  But, our mountains are very green right now!

What an awful way to start the school year. Glad you are doing better. Love fresh produce markets.
