The last of Arizona...

Yes, it's true. I've finally finished my last sting in the desert heat of Arizona! I did stay long enough to see a bit of Monsoon season though. What do you know, there is weather in AZ afterall...Still hot though. heh Had to switch hotels in the middle of the week (uh, multiple times), causing me to have to leave groceries in my car all day. Apples didn't fair so well in a hot car... half baked!
During Monsoon, the weather can change at the drop of a hat. I went into an office with blue skies as far as the eye could see...
and came out to pouring rain! Ever so brief, but still, and amazing site after months of blue skies. =) I spent half of my last trip down south in a border town, Nogales. Beautiful area!
Amazing sunsets!
And finally, I made it to Phoenix for the last week. Unfortunately, my week in Phoenix happened to coincide with the hottest week so far this year! 115 degrees is seriously not fun! Can't say I was so sad to see my last Arizona sunset:
My week in Phoenix translated to a week spent indoors in a/c. haha I was forced to shop... causing my suitcase to be overweight for the very first time in the more than a year I've been traveling on a regular basis. haha Had to do that lovely suitcase shuffle at the ticket counter, but I made it! And all those flights finally paid off! I'm finally silver elite with an airline and got bumped up to first class for my flight home... where I met a very entertaining guy who also travels for his job. That is one of the good parts of my job - I meet so many interesting people! Here's the really funny part, he knew who the Yarn Harlot is! And he even brought her up! haha Yes, big surprise. I was knitting on the plane. Can't share that project quite yet... unless you're on Ravelry. It's on my project page. =)
