It's still 109F here.

If only these clouds held some rain it would be real monsoon weather - not just on the calendar.

Peace to all,

Window of Light and Shadow - 2013-176 (Tuesday)

Via Flickr:
At Govindas restaurant for Indian Night - that's every Tuesday.

Even on Indian Night in this vegetarian restaurant, there are vegan choices galore.

I tried small amounts of several things - my favorite was the hot pickle, made my nose run and my face sweat - yum!

So Delicious - 2013-175 (Monday)

Via Flickr:
I came home from Phoenix today after a weekend of family, friends, and birthday party fun!

Took a brief swim in the community pool here where I live; it felt great after the 2 hour drive.

This yummy deliciousness was in the freezer, and I couldn't resist. It made for the perfect, light dinner.

Peace to all,
Judi

The Day After - 2013-174 (Sunday)

Via Flickr:
After some quick dips in the pool, everyone else was settled in to watch the DVRd Bruins game - a sad loss for Jenn's and Sue's favorite team.

It was a great weekend apart from the loss.

Peace, Judi

Pahtay - 2013-173 (Saturday)

Via Flickr:
This was at my older daughter's birthday celebration, plus trying to wish a little good luck to the Boston Bruins (she's a huge fan); the entire party had a Boston/sports them. It was "wicked awesome"!

I didn't notice the guests at the back were raising their arms while I was taking the picture - they added so much to it! Thanks Samantha and Stephen.

Happy birthday, DD1.

Peace, Judi (Mum)

We Finished First - 2013-171

Via Flickr:
Jazzercise is having a challenge - 2 people form a team, attend 70 classes in June + July, and each partner earns a lovely beach towel!

My partner, Tanya, and I finished the 70 class challenge in less than 3 weeks! While I took 5 classes a week, Tanya sometimes took 5 A DAY! Wow!!!

It was a fun challenge and the rest of June and all of July we can just go to class as we used to - for the fun of it!

Peace to all, Judi

Right on Schedule - 2013-166

Via Flickr:
Today is the "official" start of monsoon season here in southern Arizona, and here come the clouds.

I understand there was some lightning spotted last night and some have seen a few raindrops today.

I love weather so can't wait for it to really start!

What's it like where you are today?

New Hat - 2013-158 (Friday)

An impulse buy at the grocery store; might return it - doesn't look as good on as I hoped.

At the time of this blog post I've decided to return it to the store - just not the right hat for me.
