Don’t It Make My Gray Skies Blue

Yesterday Magpie and I spent the afternoon at a chili cook off in the Estrella foothills. It was a quintessential Arizona winter day. It started off cool, gray and cloudy. We even dared to think it might rain (silly girls)! Not long after we arrived the clouds gave way to the brilliant blue Arizona sky, and by the time we left about 3 1/2 hours later you could barely hear the Bluegrass band over the wind blowing through their mics.

On a day like that, there were no losers – but there was definitely one BIG winner…

  3. Those are the best days!!! I always have to wear layered clothes. Yesterday I went for a hike in the cold and then by afternoon, off came the jacket. I am going to make soup today:) Thanks for the idea.

    Did you try the Buzzard’s Breath chili? It does look like you had a great time. I do so like Bluegrass. MB

    I tried the Buzzard’s Breath and liked it. It was my pick for People’s Choice. It was a fantastic day and the company made it all that much better. 🙂 I didn’t know I liked Bluegrass as much as I do.
