I’m so happy. The temperatures here in Scottsdale have finally dropped below 100 F. It’s in the high 90’s every afternoon but it sure beats 110 which has been common more than I would like. The weatherman just said that next Friday it will even be below 90. Everybody who lives here do so for the winters which is on the way. I’m usually here then and it’s wonderful.

I found walking at the mall interesting but you can’t beat being outside. I had to get outside right before dawn, as you can see by this photo, as I wanted to avoid walking in the sun.  There is a line up of three planets that you can see in the early morning right now, Mercury, Mars and Venus. I could only see one which I think was Venus. The moon was waning. I love planetary things that you can see from earth. I wouldn’t want to go to Mars though which I understand will be happening before too long. I’d be afraid I couldn’t get back.

The sky was pretty on this morning. Clouds always add so much to photos. I am fascinated by weather. If I had it to do over, I think I would become a meteorologist. Needless to say, I watch the weather station a lot.
