Working Out at PebbleCreek

By |April 23rd, 2018|

For the last couple of weeks I have been staying active by trying some of the gym classes at the active adult community of PebbleCreek.

Pretty much everyday lately (Monday – Saturday), I have been in one class or another (and sometimes two!!), trying out the various offerings.  I would not be able to pick out […]

Living in a Home Owners Association

By |March 26th, 2018|

Oh Boy.

Living in a 55 Plus Community means coming to terms with living in an HOA.  Heck, for the most part, living in Arizona is going to mean coming to terms with living in an HOA.  In other parts of the country HOAs are not as prevalent, but since residential Arizona is being built largely by […]

I Am Not 55. Can I move to PebbleCreek?

By |March 21st, 2018|

Yes!  The Active Adult Lifestyle in PebbleCreek does not require that you be 55.

Remembering that I am not a lawyer and if this is a serious matter for you you might want to ask a lawyer to review the documents, according to our HOA Covenants, 20% of the homes here in PebbleCreek may be […]

What is there to do at PebbleCreek?

By |January 24th, 2018|

PebbleCreek reminds me over and over again of a college campus environment.  It would be impossible to take part in every activity at a college – and you wouldn’t want to.  The active adult lifestyle that PebbleCreek offers is similar – I will probably never get to the Ballroom Dance Club and I can’t see […]

Ed Robson – Builder and Risk Taker

By |January 12th, 2018|

Someday, there will be a movie made about Ed Robson and his mentor, Del Webb.    Mr. Webb designed the Sun City Active Adult Communities and Mr. Robson, who originally worked for Webb, decided to move out on his own as a developer.  At the time that he did it, Ed Robson was making […]

PebbleCreek Resales in Review: 2017

By |January 2nd, 2018|

Is it COLD where you are?  Here in Goodyear, Arizona, as we start the new year, we are looking forward to a high of 74 degrees.  Not the 85 degress that I would call pretty much perfect – but also not the 10 degrees that so many of my family and friends are experiencing.  […]

Thanksgiving in PebbleCreek

By |November 20th, 2017|

Thanksgiving feels like it is coming REALLY early this year…  there will be almost a full week left of November after the holiday weekend.  And, as a midwestern/East Coast girl, our stunning 80 degree (plus!) weather with blue skies and palm trees is not quite the setting that I associate with the holiday.

And yet.

PebbleCreek is […]

Starting a New Chapter at PebbleCreek

By |November 10th, 2017|

I have yet to meet someone who has made it to 55 without a few battle scars.

By and large, an active adult 55 Plus Community is full of people who are energetic and brimming with life – but behind that energy, hidden just below the surface, is the story that fuels everything:   The difficult diagnosis.  The marriage breakdown.  […]

Visiting Phoenix/Scottsdale Museums from PebbleCreek

By |August 8th, 2017|

So, today is the second Tuesday of the month – the “free” day at the Desert Botanical Garden (that’s the set up right now, I suppose it could change….).  I decided to go.  It wasn’t a first visit – I had been there to see the Chihuly Exhibit and to walk through the gardens […]

Dabbling in Art at PebbleCreek

By |August 2nd, 2017|

There are only about a million things that I could be doing today.

I could be doing the accounting for my business.  I could be cooking something for dinner.  Heck – the laundry not’s done and the patio could use a good cleaning.

To heck with all of it.  Instead, I dug out my pastels, headed […]
