Warm and Sunny


I still cannot believe that this is my backyard here in Tucson. I have to pinch myself, I really do! This week we attended our very first condo association meeting and I have been meeting some of my very interesting neighbors. One of the reasons we chose this type of condo complex was because we really liked all the amenities but also because it is NOT age restricted. I can't see myself living with people who are all retired. I need the diversity of age groups. Retirees, people who still work, people with kids etc. There are also many vacationers who rent units (which is what we did before we bought). So there are always interesting people coming and going. It is a very unique and interesting mix of people. I like that.

We actually move in tomorrow, so today we are off shopping for a few necessities. Luckily we don't need furniture or anything like that since it came furnished. Although I do need a drawing table and desk for my studio.

My husband leaves on Sunday but I am staying until the week after next. I want to relax and enjoy and get settled in. I really don't want to go back so soon but I already changed my plane ticket once and to do that again would cost too much extra money. As it is I am most likely going to try and come out every few weeks just to check on things and hang out.

Roberta, this sounds like a piece of heaven for you. I'm so so happy you're there. Love the diversity of the condo life at your new place. Have a fabulous time this week. You deserve it!! I'm sure your art will be even more enriched by the inspiration surrounding you. Can't believe your backyard! Wow.

It looked wonderful. I don't think I would ever want to leave it.

I would try to wrangle a few weeks alone there ;) Being alone is so conducive to inspiration, I think.
Enjoy your ne condo ... can't wait to get a glimpse inside ;)
