5/10/15 Sunday in Cottonwood, AZ (Verde Valley-TT)
Mass in the morning. Sound just reverberates throughout this huge church. This makes it hard for John to hear anything but I love how full the sound of the choir and the congregation are. It makes it a lot of fun to sing. As we walked out they gave each of us mothers a carnation. So lovely. We needed fuel and food so we accomplished that stop next, then on to home where I worked on yesterday’s blog. The Internet was really slow when I tried to send it, so I decided to wait. When we got home I had a nice Mother’s Day greeting from our son. Our daughter-in-law posted a really beautiful tribute to both her mom and myself! She’s such a dear.
I got my jeans, shorts and our sweatshirts washing, then after lunch I started the dryer so it would run while we went to have a great time visiting with our photographer friends Marcy/Don. Great way to spend a very warm day. When we returned it was 91 degrees in the coach. We can’t run the A/C while running the dryer if we’re on 30 amps. It was wonderful how just opening all our windows and getting our fans going helped cool everything down. Unfortunately one of the MCD shades was really hard to pull down, so I asked John for help. He applied more pressure than I and it went down but now it won’t go up. Oops.
Just a normal evening: supper then reading and TV. We talked a good while with our other son. Just warms a mom’s heart. John called his mom and learned that his sister is coming to this area to visit her longtime friend. Sure hope we can get together.
John’s back is a little sore so I’m not going to push going on an excursion before we travel Wednesday.
