time to go home..

I’m sitting at the Sky Harbor Airport.
Sky Harbor, what a great name for an airport. And they have free wireless. Woo Hoo!

My visit was a blast, but I’m ready to go home. We packed in a lot of activities in to three days. Today was a little more laid back. Ann and I visited the Heard Museum (Native American Arts), where she used to work. I also got a tour of Bentley Gallery where she now works. I was great to meet all of the volunteers at the museum. They have been there for years, and really like Annie. Tim met us for lunch at Matt’s Big Breakfast. It’s a tiny little restaurant with a small menu and great food.

We had time for a nap, an attempt to color my hair (I was chicken and rinsed it out too soon), and the challenge of stuffing all of the crap I bought at IKEA in to my suitcase. What was I thinking? Buying “S” hooks and zip ties? I’d be laughed out of Sullivan’s Hardware. They must hyptotize you when you walk in the door at IKEA.

I’m so glad I got the chance to see Ann and Tim…

Nora,
There used to be an IKEA store near me when I lived outside of D.C. I haven't been to one in years. I got that hypnotic feeling when I went to the Orvis store in Carmel.

This all sounded like fun (except having to sit thru an Al Gore's speech)
I have never seen a store by that name. (IKEA) But I've read a couple of blogs that mentioned them. I will investigate given the chance.
Glad you're home safe.
