Calendar Girlz

For our Women's Guild annual fashion show, I was part of a group of 12 ladies who performed Calendar Girl.

Here are a few fun pictures of our beautiful ladies having fun!
Pam was October: Romeo & Juliet on Halloween

Ellen was Christmas: You're the present 'neath m Christmas Tree

Anne was September: I light the candles at your sweet sixteen

I was August: When you're on the beach, you steal the show

This was the very first time I have ever been on stage and performed!!!  Another fear conquered!!!
It was so much fun!!!

Not Your Mama's Fancy Tablescape

Absolutely not a tablescape worthy to write about,
but a great time was had with family and friends!

Desert Snow Capped Mountain

Believe it or not, the Phoenix Valley gets some snow from time to time!!!
A week ago Wednesday, I was on my way on an errand and driving north of our house, when I was so surprised and amazed to see snow !!

It had been a very unbelievably chilly night.

It looks so far from us, but just to be able to see snow covered mountains near us,
it's simply priceless!

Spring Has Sprung

...even though it's still winter!
Pretty soon our cacti, Palo Verde trees and other desert plants will be in full colorful bloom.

 Daisy Geraniums and very healthy looking petunia plants are thriving in our warm days and very cold nights.

This minuscule spring garden graces our small AZ home patio.
It's really nice to sit here and enjoy our afternoons and wait for the beautiful sunsets we have been having just about everyday!

Hello March...

Yes...I'm so behind! 
January and February were simply a blink of the eye for me;
but I still want to share our CDA's January General Meeting get-together.
Our January's meeting was a fun one.  It was great to see each other again and spent time together.

As the ladies found their seat, they each received a little favor.

Wishing them a Happy New Year and a healthy one!

One of our activities was to think of a word that we could use and work on throughout the year as a resolution for the New Year.  My word of the Year is PATIENCE!!!

After the meeting, we had a fun door prize drawing!
The ladies must wear their name tag in order to participate.  It's a great way to remind every one to wear your tag!

We celebrated in style.  Wine tasting & toasting, ...

... and delicious appetizers!  Believe me, more finger food was shared.

I love our meetings and fellowship!  I am so blessed to have found a group where we all have the same spiritual connection.
