Staying Fit at the PebbleCreek Pools

By |February 14th, 2017|

 

We have five public pools at PebbleCreek – two at each clubhouse and one new pool that is perfect for informal gatherings.   When I first moved here, I swam quite a bit, making my way back and forth across the Tuscany Falls pool in my version of the breast stroke.  But, inevitably, I hurt […]

Yes! There is lots of Bike Riding around PebbleCreek!

By |February 5th, 2017|

After I moved to Arizona, my first real purchase was a bike.  This is before I bought the house, clothes for the climate, anything.  I really wanted a bike.  It’s got 7 speeds.  It’s white.  I haven’t named it yet.

PebbleCreek is very bike friendly, and once I am done with work for the day […]

So Many Life Long Learning Opportunities at PebbleCreek!

By |January 31st, 2017|

I am a library person.  When we moved to PebbleCreek, we had to build bookshelves for our own book collection.  And I am convinced that at least a quarter of the 2,000 pounds of stuff that we moved from DC to Arizona was books – we certainly did not move much furniture!

That being said, […]

Spring Training in Goodyear, AZ!

By |January 23rd, 2017|

Okay.  I am NOT a baseball fan.  Except when I am.

As a native of the Chicago suburbs, I owned every bit of the 2016 Cubs World Series victory and may never forget that last game of the series.   The rain delay, the extra innings, the closeness of the entire thing will all be remembered […]

An Easy Weekend Getaway: Las Vegas

By |January 16th, 2017|

PebbleCreek is close enough to Las Vegas to make it an easy – and affordable! – short get away.  And just far enough away to not become a bad habit!

The drive is about 4.5 hours depending on who is driving.  Having done it myself, I would recommend not planning on tackling the drive at […]

Buy a House with the Sun in Mind!

By |January 8th, 2017|

Over the course of my (increasingly long!) life, I have not given the sun much more than a moment’s thought.   I’ve been aware of it, of course, in the sense that day is day and night is night and the sun has something to do with all of that.  But the landscapes of […]

Celebrating the Holiday Season at PebbleCreek

By |January 7th, 2017|

I am still relishing the memories of the holidays.  We have all lived long enough to know that not every holiday season is wonderful – but every once in a while, a set of hopes and plans comes together to create a wonderful memory.   My planning almost always starts with the PebbleCreek Post […]
