It's the last day of June.
The sun is shining.
The sky is blue.
Yet it's a cool morning as we have a slight break in the weather while the eastern half of the nation is sweltering in high temperatures and humidity.
Ah, yes, humidity.
It's one of the joys of living in Arizona.
Right now the humidity is about 25 percent and that's high for us.
Normally it's in the single digits.
Tacking off in a different direction, we visited the Prescott Writer's group recently for a talk on self publishing.
It was quite interesting and the speaker began her talk by saying the days of the vanity press are done and gone.
That's a good thing, I think.
Afterwards we went to a restaurant for dinner and started our meal with one of Judy's favorites - spinach artichoke dip and chips.
We both loved it and commented that we should duplicate it in our own kitchen.
Then when I began reading my daily New York Times Cooking email today one of the first recipes was for, you guessed it, spinach artichoke dip!
I printed it out and we plan to make it perhaps tomorrow.
With all the cheese in this recipe we think it may be our dinner, rather than just an appetizer.
Tacking again, my Arizona Diamondbacks (the baseball team, not the rattlesnakes) lost a one-run game last night but the L.A. Dodgers also lost so we maintain a 3 and a half game lead over them in the National League West.
And Tiger Woods recovered from a shaky start in the Quicken Loans National golf tournament with a 5 under par round yesterday which means he'll once again be playing this weekend so I'll probably be camped out in front of the t.v.
That's life in my corner of the world.
I hope you all have a positive weekend.
