Boy, did I ever hit the jackpot renting this winter. I am in a glass cottage on a three acre plot. I will post pictures as I go along. I have a view of the mountains in both directions. I am able to open up the doors during the day and let the breeze come through. At night, I have an overview of the city of Tucson and its twinkling lights. Yet, thanks to the ordinances controlling light pollution, I am able to see the stars just fine. 

I am at the end of a gravel road. No traffic. Yet, 1/2 mile away is the start of a long bike path. I brought Lance's bike down and rode 14 miles this afternoon. It was sunny and hot. Beautiful. 

Okay, here are some pictures. Pay no attention to the listed price...I got a nice deal for staying three months. (I wouldn't want you to think I am a spendthrift.) 

Lance stayed back to do some work. He has no problem with winter, unlike me. But today he came down with fever and the flu, so I don't feel right not being able to make him chicken noodle soup as he did for me when I had my tonsils out! 

I spent the rest of the day settling in and stocking the kitchen. 

Tonight, I introduced myself to the nearest neighbors and ended up staying for supper. Wonderful people. Sculptors now, but I biochemist and a veterinarian during their earlier careers. 

I will have plenty to write about this winter.
