Well its been a long wonderful 3 weeks with my sister and her daughter visiting…..My sisters’ “65” birthday happened while she was here…I am so excited she planned to come meet that huge step with us….my brother and his wife lives across the street so we were all together…..its been since my mom passes that we were together so it was very healing, to to mention fun!!!! Her daughter flew in from the east to surprise her and we all pulled that off without her ever finding out…it had been a rough 5 months….my sister and I keep no secrets from each other…LOL I haven’t laughed this hard and long in a very long time…we played pinochle until midnight everynight…it had been 40+ years since I played that card game…we all grew up playing that card game…it was fun…lots of laughs, wine and way to much food !!!
So know that my sister has flown home, it is back to getting my weight down….started today….fridge is full of fresh food and started my exercises….going to go back to planet fitness and rejoin….I was not impressed with Snap Fitness…there machines are so different and difficult to use…the weights seem to be much heavier than what I am used to, on one of the machines I can barely lift just the bar without weight, and I normally did 30 to 40#’s….I asked one of the trainers and she said it was normal for the machines to be different at all gyms.. REALLY ?? I thought 10#s was the same weight no matter what…I asked her how that could be? she told me she noticed that all the machines at a different Snap Fitness were different than the ones at the current gym…made me a little leery of using the machines…so I will go back to PF…..weather is starting to warm up a little so I will try to get back to the pool…
Well after we dropped my sister off at the airport in Phoenix at 7a, we headed 2 hours north to Sedona…what a beautiful place…..had to look past the traffic and tourist, but I found my way up to the bottom of several of the huge red rocks…..we had fun…it was cold, foggy, and wet…we drove through rain, snow and sun…eventually gave up staying anywhere and made it home….long 12 hours….but saw some beautiful country….
The sky most of the day…..
Sedona, city of Red Rocks…..
This is the view from the Chapel of the Holy Cross….the Chapel is beautiful….the tourist were over the top!!!!!
More red rocks….very beautiful…we will go back on a sunny day….
Going over Mingus Pass 7023’….it was 37′ at 1pm…LOL no snow angels for us…
Then there was the little town of Jerome…..here’s a video off u-tube of driving through it….
Hope you enjoyed the pictures….if you are ever in Arizona I suggest Sedona…its beauty is beyond words….
