Been a busy month, seems just yesterday March 1st had arrived and here it is already the 22nd!! Well lets see, our son and his girlfriend came for 3 days. They had never been here yet and were quite surprised at how beautiful it was. We drove to the top of Mt. Lemon and spent several hours at the desert museum in Saguaro National Park, laughed a lot and just had fun! They were on there way to Utah to see all the beauty it has to offer too!
Here are some pictures from the desert museum
The last picture above was taken on top of Mt. Lemon, it was a beautiful day, cool up there but gorgeous.
We have also hired someone to come put up a perimeter fence for us. We are only doing the back half of the property. The front is all cactus, sharp and pokey, I would never let the dog out there. They should be here on Monday, fingers crossed, to start the job. Also finally found a roofing company that is going to do our roof and the part on the deck that is covered. They will tear it out and put it up correctly so it won’t leak anymore, Yay !! That should start in a bout 3 weeks. We have been busy!
In the meantime my sweetheart tripped and twisted his ankle really bad, along with a bruised hip and knee. So we ended up at a foot MD and he gave him an injection of steroids and he is well on the mend. YAY Nothing like trying to keep not only a stubborn ole man down, but add his German stubbornness on top of that, well lets just say it was like talking to a donkey!! Can’t say I would be much better. LOL
We took a drive to Nogales today to check out the border town. Lets say it was your typical border town, we used to go to San Luis in Yuma, it was only 22 miles from the house and they had great grocery stores. I couldn’t even find a grocery story in Nogales. It was so spread out. We had lunch and watched the police stop people right and left. They were busy that was for sure. We drove down a road by the wall to check out all the razor wire that was added to the wall, there was no one on either side of the wall, it was extremely quiet. heres a couple pictures we took.
felt like a waste of time and energy to put up all that wire and for what?? Lets just say we disagree with the reasoning behind it and leave it at that. What I didn’t get in the picture was I was parked in someone’s driveway, all those cars in the picture are in front of there homes. Sure wouldn’t like that in my front yard.
I went had all my lab work done, most of my blood work came back great. I asked him to check on the inflammation marker in my body and it came back showing high levels of inflammation, and showed rheumatoid arthritis. So he is referring me to a specialist, maybe I can get better direction on what to do. So that has made me happy. I have been to several MD’s and he was the first to agree with me about doing some special labs to check on my inflammation levels. YAY I really like my new MD, well he is actually a NP, the MD I had picked out is still out with back surgery and may never return, so I think I will keep him as my new NP.
Life is good, weather is getting warmer and all the ducks are getting in a row!! Enjoy spring !
Hope you all had a chance to do a little twirl under the full moon the other night. I certainly did.
