Still playing make believe.

Paying the Price


It’s GOOD to be home. It really is.

Oh, I loved having someone else cook all my meals, make my bed and drive me around, but home really is where the heart is.

I took a cajillion pictures, and I promise not to force them all on you. Just a few.

I’d never been to Santa Fe, Tombstone or Tucson before, but I absolutely loved it! I could live in Santa Fe and be a happy camper–if all my family and friends would move out there, too.

I have this thing–I figure I’m going to have to pay the price for taking my trip. Either I lose (okay, I forget) something I really like in the hotel or something bad happens at home while I’m gone.

This time, I lost my pink shirt AND something internet-wise gilflirted on my computer.

Bummer, huh?

But I’ve got Internet back, hopefully my email is there and I’m cooking with gas. We’ll see about the shirt.

In these pictures, you’ll see G-Man, locked up 🙂 Hatch, Arizona, the Pepper Capitol of the Universe, a blooming cactus and some great old cars. I’ll share more later.

Have you been to that part of the world? What did you like best?

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

  1. Beautiful pics Susan…..might be time for a trip out West! Thanks for sharing your pics and adventures with us.

  2. I thought about you a lot while we were out there, Carollea. I figure you’ve been there and done most everything. It was beautiful!

I'm so glad you dropped by my Small Town World! Hope you'll leave a comment. I really enjoy hearing from you!
