Serenity in Scottsdale, AZ

 I must say..the heat did not bother me in Scottsdale. While my husband was getting a surprise honor at his business  luncheon on Friday (more later), I enjoyed the view off my balcony at the hotel~in fact, I spent the afternoon there reading, studying, and writing. The sound of bubbling water is always so soothing to me..

 The sweet soft clucking sound of a mother duck with her babies gliding along the pond added to my delight.

In the evening we relaxed...

I am happiest when I am with Steve and near some sort of water...pond, lake, river, stream,or fountain~it always nurtures my soul.

And may I just brag on this man of mine a little?? He was the recipient of a Career Achievement Award.
I am so proud of him and happy that he was recognized for all his hard work for the past 28 years with the California Alcoholic Beverage Control.
