Arizona Almanac on Hiatus

No Arizona post today.  But fear about a week, I think you will all be sick of hearing about Arizona. 

Beginning on Sunday, April 1st, I will be participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. You can click on the icon to the right to find out more about it (pretty ironic that the icon has the initials of my state, don't you think? ;)

The concept is:  blogging everyday but Sunday (the 1st being the exception) and the post topics must follow the alphabet.  So, on Sunday April 1st the topic will begin with A and on Monday the 2nd it will begin with B and so on.  When I first signed up for this way back in January (seems like a week ago) I wasn't sure what I would write about.  I was going to write about being a mom of adult kids since that's kinda what my blog is supposed to be about, but who's kidding who, there just isn't enough material for 26 posts about being a mom of adult kids.  That and it just seemed overwhelming.  When I write posts like that I feel the pressure to be witty or wise or both...and at this point I just can't handle that pressure.  So, I got the bright idea that I would use this challenge to write about Arizona.  I have lots of material, I can keep the posts short and everyone would learn something.  I might still try to be witty, but don't hold your breath on that one. 

After this challenge I will re-evaluate my Arizona Almanac posts.  I may be tired of writing about Arizona, and you may be tired of hearing about it.  We'll see how that goes. 

So, wish me luck with this little endeavour, I will need it.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I can't wait to read the posts. The couple times I've been to or through Arizona, all I could think was "It's really f'ing hot. This state sucks" I want to see what it looks like to people who live there all the time.

    1. It is f'ing hot here...and sometimes this state does suck. But there are lots of great things too. You should try to go to northern Arizona the next time you are here. It's beautiful there. I'm looking forward to reading your blog!

  2. You're going to do great with this challenge Gerri!
