Cleansing

Decided a cleansing was needed. Stopped drinking for a day, gonna try and go for a week or longer.

Now before anyone asks, I’m not giving up drinking. What I’m giving up is this belly I’ve developed. You’d never realize how many calories are in a double scotch neat, but apparently the answer is a butt load. And no I’m not giving my collection away.

We bought an elliptical. Now I know I swore after the military I’d never exercise regularly again, something about people yelling at you to “move your ass” really kills the joy in running for fun. I love this elliptical though and it beats the hell out of running in 115 degree Arizona heat. Now I have no excuses!

It helps to jump in a pool right after too.

Weekend photos

Went exploring this weekend. Here’s some shots!

I thought the castle in the mountain was cool. It’s really a village of homes made of mud that some Native Americans lived in. Nice little hike and some informative tour info.

This gorge and natural bridge were amazing! We were sad it was closed off so we couldn’t go down to the waterfall.

Japanese garden was very peaceful to walk around in Phoenix! I’d go back there.

The new place is coming along!

In the rental there was one thing I absolutely loved in her home. She had these giant crystal chandeliers that made a huge statement when you walked in. I loved seeing the sunrise and sunset hit them like a disco ball and had to have some.

What I didn’t realize until opening the big boxes was that I would have to manually put the lights together! I ended up having to redo one ring of crystals and needless to say the whole process was painfully slow. I’m very proud of them though! They turned out perfect and only took me about three hours per freaking chandelier…

I mean if you pay that kinda money you’d think they’d come put together and not be an IKEA sized project!
