Since this is one of the few photos I happen to have saved on it I didn't want to leave it devoid of a photo. These are some chains I picked up at the gem show last year. They kind of look like Elevenses.
I made it dwon to Tucson just in time for some cooler temps, although much warmer than Alaska. A dusting of snow on the mountain tops and cool enough for a second light layer of clothing.
First day spent shopping to outfit our new little apartment... shower curtain, towels and the like. Filling up on good Mexican food 'round town and stocking up at Trader Joe's. Then north to Phoenix to catch up with my sister that's doing a hundred mile run on her 48th birthday called the "Javelina Jundred". I had the full on IKEA experience in Phoenix when I actually need to furnish a small place so that was so exciting for me. I've only ever been to one once before so you can imagine what fun that was.
Meanwhile I'm waiting for my man to show up with the truck he drove down from Alaska. It was kind of scary to hear that he covered 1700 miles without stopping to sleep. What a marathon man he is and I'm glad he made it safely so far. He's stopping at Obsidian Mountain to pick up rocks today he tells me. We never ever travel light!
After the weekend we'll finally make it to our destination of Bisbee and settle in and I can start making stuff again!
