2/1/16 ftf, wren

This is an early post of my Monday FTF list, as I expect that it will be hard enough to get back on my work schedule tomorrow.

It was really just being warm and dry for two weeks.  Temps at my moms topped out at 60F/15C-70F/21C every day, and there was lots of sunshine.  The warm, dry weather was good for J’s rehab, and he was able to get several sessions with a really excellent physical therapsist.  Things with my mom could be trying at times, but I expect that this is fairly normal.  On our last evening, we enjoyed a very pleasant evening at this event:  Sonoran Light.

We drove back home through a snowstorm yesterday.  This morning, the snow was so deep that I couldn’t open the back gate to let the dogs out, and it was 1F/-17C outside.  My hand and wrist are really aching, no doubt because of the cold.  The transition back to winter may be a bit difficult!  Work will be very busy next week, too, but here’s my list to keep me on track.  My goal is to complete five things from the work list.

  1. Given how poorly we deal with even a little bit of snow here, I can barely imagine how you guys cope!

    • I would have thought that Scotland took snow in stride. How much snow do you get? Perhaps it’s not as much as I’ve been thinking. A lot of the US east coast cities also deal very poorly with snow. It’s such a way of life here that it rarely causes things to completely shut down.

  2. Agreed! While we were in AZ we visited a number of active adult retirement communities, just to see what they’re all about. One plan that we have floating around for our retirement years is to get a place in one of those communities in AZ and work the summer months in national parks, which would allow us to supplement our income while also getting away from the extreme heat.
