I think I've said that the sun always shines in Las Vegas...well not every minute of the daylight hours. Like this morning, it was a little overcast when we started out for Gretchen and Brian's. I was a little sorry I had not brought my sweater.
Brian is replacing all the carpet in their upstairs with bamboo flooring. It is going to be beautiful. Jim went over today to help him a little so I went along and did my walk in their neighborhood. The sun did manage to come out a little, but as the sun came out, the wind picked up. On my way back home, I worked much harder as I walked into the wind. Must have burned a lot of extra calories pushing against that wind.
Yesterday we joined the new Senior Center near our condo. Membership is free, even to us Snowbirds. We toured the center and stopped in the Cafe for a treat. We had two coffees and two cookies for $1 - total. There really some perks to growing older.
Wednesday found me back fellowshipping with Women of Spirit at our church home away from home. It was so wonderful for me to get back to worship with those women. It being Ash Wednesday, we attended the service in the sanctuary which was so moving. I love Ash Wednesday and this service was especially moving to me.
Wednesday evening we had dinner with Brian and Gretchen. We played a new game called IMAGINEIF. What a fun game. We laughed ourselves silly. For sure, we are buying that one.
Speaking of buying, we bought a George Forman grill today. When we try to broil meat in this oven, the whole condo is filled with smoke. We have great hopes for this new grill. I'll keep you posted.
I guess that's a good recap of our first week in the desert. We have walked every day, although I'm not sure the diet has been that good. We'll keep trying. Maybe next week will be better.
