Ball Game Number Two

Yesterday we attended a game at Maryvale Park watching the Brewers take on the Chicago Cubs.  The final score was 12 to 5 in favor of the good guys. 

What a great day.   Our team beat the hometown rivals, and the weather was fantastic with sunny skies and a high of 79 degrees.  This time we sat on the grass on the third base side so the other side of our body got the sun.  About half way through the game, we actually moved to the shade.  That sun gets hot!

Here’s the lawn seating across from us on the first base side.  You can see how there is a huge area where fans can sit on the grass and enjoy the games for a great price and soak up the rays.  This lawn seating goes around the entire outfield.

I must admit, the people watching was quite interesting.  All I have to say is that some of the female Cubs fans had some very interesting outfits!

We have heard so much about the beauty of the desert when it is in bloom in spring.  I’m not sure when that’s supposed to happen, but so far I haven’t really seen anything that I would call blooming.  I did notice that after the rain last weekend, the desert seems to be getting a fine green carpet growing on it.  It’s nice to see this green out there rather than all the brown we’ve seen the past few months.

I’ve picked up two virtual assistant clerical jobs over the last few months.  So, today was spent working online and earning a bit.  Both of these jobs are still in the initial stages, but I see potential for growth.  We’ll see how it goes.

  2. It is amazing to complain about the heat in March. :) We are getting spoiled with all this warm weather. I miss the green too. I keep hoping we will et to see the desert bloom before we go. We did see some Cottonwood trees that have leafed today so maybe there is hope.
