My back and feet and legs were killing me yesterday, so I bought some better "walking shoes" ... it's way too hot for the boots that I wore here, and the sandals weren't really good for shopping for hours and hours! I'm still aching, guess I can't do much for that, but I think it's better!
I saw Wilson today! He used to come up from Texas to bring us his beads to choose from ... wow does he have so much more than I thought!!! His booth is immense! And, boy did he have good prices (comparatively) on turquoise and amber. Costs on these two "stones" has soared over the past few years ... I wasn't going to buy either, because I don't think my customers are willing to pay more than what I do, but Wilson has made it possible! He is so sweet ... as soon as he saw me he came over and gave me a big hug. Then he followed me around his large booth and helped me pick out some really great beads. When I come back I am going straight to him! It's good to have bead vendor friends ...
I drove "home" to my hotel with the mountains ahead of me, I just wanted to bypass the hotel and head straight there ... the mountains are sooo beautiful ... saguaros instead of trees ... and such great angles ... I plan on going up there on Friday!
I hear there's more snow tonight? Sorry folks, but tomorrow I'm going to be using my air conditioner because it's supposed to be 82!
And, I was just in the pool, made two new friends, Isadora and Sophia from Chile, they are 8 and 13 respectively. Totally adorable ... I practiced my Spanish and they practiced their English ... so good to have new friends!
Check out the photos, this is a HUGE rock that they've carved out of the earth with geodes exposed ... the bottom photo is a close-up of one of the openings ... it's way taller than me!!!
