Today is our last day here in the enveloping warmth that is Tucson in the summer. I tell people that being here in summer is like being wrapped in a warm blanket. It feels good to me since I am always cold back east.
It has been truly lovely to actually spend extra time here and get to really live in our house. When we are here for only a week, it is hard to buy food or cook or anything like that. This time we shopped for food twice, we cooked some lovely meals and ate out as well. I still don't have the proper pans here though. I need to bring my All Clad set with me since they are now twice the price they were when I bought them. It will be cheaper to ship them.
The best part was going to the art supply store and setting up a real painting space here. I managed to complete a couple of pieces and that was exciting. Normally I can only sketch or work in pens and markers. This time I was able to work in acrylics as well. I can't post them since the scanner I bought for out here is horrible. It is one of those printer/scanner things and the color control is awful. I will have to bring my real dedicated Epson scanner out in June.
When we go back to Boston tomorrow we will seriously begin to downsize, give away, toss etc.
I am sad to always have to leave here. But the good news is that we are down to 9 more months of living in Boston. I am going to try and stay focused on the move and getting ready for the move even though I know that there are going to be multiple stressful issues to deal with when I get back that do not include the move.
Enjoy your long weekend.
