Walking with the giants.

Lisa over at Boondock ramblings gave me this idea for a fun little post. She commented on one of my posts about how big the cacti were in one photo and that got me thinking that maybe there are others out there in the world that haven’t been exposed to cacti like someone who grew…

Shopping trip to an Arizona cactus gift shop.

  This month’s shopping adventure is at a tiny little gift shop at a cactus museum here in Arizona. There are actually two little shops in the museum across from each other. There are so many beautiful cacti to see here. This is the place to go if you are a cactus fanatic. The first…

  Arizona adventures-festival of lights

“ Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell not stuff to show.” For the past couple of years, my family and I take a road trip to the Besh ba Gowah archaeological site, about a mile away from Globe Arizona. This is an event I recommend to anyone visiting our state…

When it rains it snows…at Our Little Red House that is.

It’s that time of year again. That time of year that makes it impossible to drive up to check on our place because the days we have free are also days when big storms roll into our state. Every time it rains here, it snows up north. We are desert creatures, having been raised in…

20 itty bitty houses at the art museum and a thank you to all veterans.

  Happy Veteran’s Day everyone. Thank you, to all the Veterans and first responders out there. For serving our country. For protecting others. For sacrificing time with your own love ones to help others. For helping to keep us all safe and for fighting for our freedoms. May only good things always come your way,…

If you are a regular follower of mine then you know we travel to Prescott Arizona a lot. Not for ghosts though, for fun. It is such a beautiful place. This is one of those places I would love to live. They get four seasons here. In the desert we really only get two seasons….

Arizona adventures part two- Hauntings in Jerome Arizona

Once again I was back in one of my favorite little towns to visit here in Arizona. I love it because of all the artists that live here. Others love it because of it’s history of Ghosts. This place is probably the most haunted place in our whole state. Again, I only visit during the…

A walk in the clouds…hiking an Arizona desert during a storm.

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” Vivian Greene Repost- I had so much fun writing this post up. I remember the day we planned a hike in my old neighborhood and the disappointment I felt at not being able to find a parking spot…
