Well the time has come to pack up and head on out! I feel much like a cowboy, headin’ on home! Desert living is very different from the Northwest. You don’t wake up and get out of bed at 7 a.m. to nearly 90 degree weather in the Northwest – that is very rare! And, you don’t have days upon days of 100+ degree weather. I love coming to the desert for a week R&R – it’s refreshing to see something different and explore new places (new shopping haunts!!) and meet new people. I’m already scoping out a fall location!
Today will be one last photo op around Scottsdale, via the free trolley service or walking. There’s a few more photos I want to add to my on-line web album. I have a late check-out at the hotel, and a 2:00 pm SuperShuttle pick-up for the airport. This should give me more than enough time to see what I need to see! I’ve even managed to get in some work for a CMCN (Church Ministry Conventions Network) board meeting this fall. So far it looks like the Minneapolis/St. Paul area will be the location of our fall board meeting. I still have a lot of work to do on this meeting, and it feels overwhelming at times, but when it is your passion (this is an entire post I could do, and plan to sometime) it happens!
