In the 'zone

Arizona that is!
I needed a little break, so I flew to Mom and Dad's house early on Thursday morning and arrived by 8:30 AM.

It was already about 85 degrees at that hour, but I kinda like it. We have just been hanging out and taking little half day excursions. On Thursday we went to Scottsdale and walked around a bit.
As most of you know, I love my turquoise jewelry and seem to always wear at least one piece of the gorgeous blue stone so I had to control myself while browsing the shops in Scottsdale but one ring made me cave. After figuring out what size I was, we went to get a light lunch and while we sat down, the ring was delivered to our table - how's that for customer service? Pretty amazing.
We stopped at Whole Foods Market in Scottsdale and got some dinner supplies for Dad to make dinner and what a dinner it was...roasted stuffed poblano peppers (vegan of course) and mixed green salad. It was delicious and I have to admit, it was nice to be cooked for. I gorged myself on two of them and went to bed with a full and happy belly.
Friday, I worked half the day and then Mom and I went to Wickenburg to a large western clothing/home store but we left a little disappointed as the row of boots that was shown in the newspaper was a mere fraction of what was photographed. They had more men's than women's stuff but they did have cool home finishings. Mom got some Wranglers and we kept on driving. We fell upon a super cool antique store called Quarter Horse Antiques and their sister store Smith and Western. This store was kind of like a dream come true, cool old rusty fun things outside and so many old treasures on the inside (no photos allowed). There was everything from old Navajo jewelry to folk art items. I did find something really fantastic and rare - a handmade copper Rag-Dung (Tibetan Ceremonial Horn). It is a great decorative piece and I love it!

Today we are just hanging out. The temp has reached 104 today and headed up to 111 tomorrow. My Mom and I did run some errands to get a Father's Day gift and some dinner supplies. We have been eating really well last night we had my veggie burgers, steak fries and salad and tonight...roasted veggies and polenta. Hope you all have a great weekend.
