Windy, Cloudy, rainy and I love it

The day is very cloudy. There is a steady wind and the chimes are sounding lovely. Rain is lightly falling and I love it....except for the humidity that is along with it. The tiny Goldfinches are busy at the feeder and the Quails are scratching about on the ground. Unless it is pouring rain, they go about their business. 
Yesterday Mr H and I went to The Pueblo Grande Museum. It is located in Phoenix not far from the airport. It has been open since 1929 and has a walking trail and small indoor museum.
The visitors building is inviting with the painted hieroglyphics. There is the indoor museum and a small gift shop.The displays are wonderful examples of basketry, weaving and pottery
The walk outside was nice... the sun was not shining even though it was still hot and a few drops of rain fell.
Thy have recreated a few buildings that you see along the walk. Set up as it might have been in the days the Hohokam still lived there.


The items on display are what might have been and the construction was interesting. Pottery and gourds as well as utensils were set out.


We have wanted to visit here for some time and it was a good day to do so.
 We have so many wonderful places to visit here in Arizona....and we have been able to see many places in our nine years living here. Outdoor museums are wonderful....
I have been busy stitching and tatting but wanted to share this with you. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I am almost finished with a new tatting piece so I should return to the stitching chair and then I must have some breakfast. Actually, I think I will wait for Mr H to make me some pancakes...he makes delicious pancakes. Glad you shared some time with me...thank you for the kind words that make me smile.
Have a wonderful day.

Nice visit to the museum. Wish we could have some rain but it too would be humid. We have had enough humidity this summer with no rain here in CA.
