The new view

Friday afternoon we arrived at our new rental house in Gilbert, Arizona after a whirlwind of packing due to a move date that we advanced by almost three weeks due to the coronavirus. We didn’t want to have a problem leaving, so we packed the van and the car, loaded up the cooler with meatloaf sandwiches, apples, and other goodies, added sanitizer to be used at the motels. and hit the road. Three days later, we were here. A day and a half after that, our worldly goods arrived and are now sitting in the house and garage.

Yesterday morning I went out for a walk in my new world. It’s not the woman-in-the-middle-of-nature that I enjoyed at the park. It’s very different. But there are lots of paved walking paths like this and being out early, I didn’t see many people. It felt good to be outside walking after so many days of sitting. The sun had just come up and the day was lovely. Here’s a bit of what I saw. Excursions farther away will have to wait for now and hopefully for not too long. Until then, I’ll enjoy what’s here and keep exploring in the area. You’re welcome to come along for the journey.

…if you’re this little and inside a cactus flower.

These flowers welcomed us to our new home. I mentioned their beauty to the owner who replied, amazed, that she had been at the house just a few days earlier and there were no flowers. Several are already beginning to wilt, but oh, are they glorious!!

For Six Word Saturday

While there’s no frost today (probably more rain), I thought I should enjoy some photos of it, as omce in Arizona, we won’t want to see it! I love it! Though! So here are a few from earlier in the year.

Monday I headed for the park, isolation, and fresh air the order of a Coronavirus day, plus the need for soul food. I was blessed to see three groups of deer, none of whom spooked, allowing me to even get a halfway decent shot or two with my iPhone.
