No Pattern Today

I don't have a pattern for you today. I have been busy packing and getting ready for my trip to Arizona. I tell you, it can't come soon enough. The weather here in Boston has been so brutal. I haven't been out of the house at all in over a month. Just to go to the doctor.

I am looking forward to being in the desert once again. I have my sketchbook packed and my pens. Unfortunately I was not able to get to the art supply store for some new pens so the old ones will have to do. I can always find an art store in Tucson. I am sure there are plenty. I plan on visiting a few of our old haunts that we always go to including Tohono Chul Park and the Degrazia gallery. There are a couple of new places I want to go to as well. I recently read about a Zen Garden near the Tucson Botanical Gardens and so I will be sure to check that out.

And of course a few trips to Sabino Canyon for the hiking. I haven't exercised in over a month so I am sure I will be quite out of shape for it! But I will pace myself and build myself back up slowly.

I am bringing my computer of course. Funny how we can't leave the electronics for a minute any more. But I feel like my life is on here now and luckily it doesn't weigh too much.

So have a nice weekend. By this time tomorrow I will be on my way! Hooray!
