University classes are coming to Del Webb, starting the first week in February for 8 weeks. Even though I will most likely miss the last week I have signed up for 3 of the classes...
Monday morning I will take a class on Lewis and Clark.
Tuesday afternoon will be a Philosophy class, using the book 'Sophie's World'.
And on Wednesday afternoon I will be taking a class in photography. I have signed up for this class in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, I can be taught how to set my camera with all the manual settings to get ready for National Geographic type photos.
There is a class on Arizona Birding and another on Language that both interest... but I think these 3 will keep me busy for the next couple months.
Wishing you all well, wherever you are.
Stay in touch!
It seems that for those of us who are reluctant to enter 2014, I could be the poster child! Slowly, slowly I am gathering myself together to start this new year. What am I waiting for? Not sure but my head is awhirl (is that a word?) with ideas and I have to choose how this new year will shape up. It is my choice.
But, there is definitely a struggle in the choosing. And I realize that making no choice is also a choice.
So, 2014, here I come, ready or not! I can hear you all laughing, wondering where in the world has Shirley Ann been. I am very conscious that the choices I make tell my story.
"The future lies
like a field of
Be careful how
you tread it,
for every step
Be well and keep in touch . . .
p.s. the photo in my header is for those of you who are suffering through a long winter. The glass flowers come from Venice, Italy.
A new day, a new week, a new month and a new year... what more could a girl want? I have looked at the blogs I usually tap into and read other's intros to 2014, thinking of what I wanted most out of this new year.
Because of all the changes that face me every day, in all areas of life,
I want to choose the word 'Constancy' for 2014.
The foundations of my life is where I will focus this year. Come along for the ride.
Three new little cacti came to our house... notice the smallest one in the upper right hand corner of the 'nursery'.
When we toured The Sonoran Desert Museum this past weekend we were given this book of coupons and facts about the Museum. On the back page there was this offer...
So we went to B&B Cactus Farm and came home with a wee baby Saguaro... and instructions on how to care for cactus and succulents.
This is what baby Saguaro could grow up to be!!
The wee baby in the first photo is already 18 months old. It takes 50 years for a Saguaro to even get it's first arm... so we will probably not see any arms on our baby. We will leave it for one of the grandchildren to watch over.
