Of Canyon and Books
Emily's trip took her all over Arizona in those two weeks, which was a wonderful change of scenery for this midwestern girl. By the time they got to Tucson, the weather had gotten so hot they needed to buy shorts. And that wasn't the only thing Emily bought on that trip. She also credits the adventure with turning her into a mystery book lover because she devoured all the Tony Hillerman books, which are set in this area, she could find in the gift shops they encountered.
I'd like to be celebrating here tonight, but I'll be at home, cozy with my beloved and cat. And I probably won't be awake at midnight. It has been many years since I stayed awake until midnight to toast the new year. How about you?
