It’s tough to be a couch potato in Chandler, Arizona

I will admit, one of the things I love about going to my mountain cabin is the opportunity to be a slug. Hanging out by the fireplace, reading a good book or watching a movie.

 But down here in Chandler (aka the Valley of the Sun) it’s tough to do. Breaking my toe a couple days ago has forced me off my feet for a few days so here I sit. Outside the sun is shining and the temps are in the 70’s while much of the rest of the country shivers under subzero windchills and mounds of snow.

I guess that’s one of the things I like most about Arizona, a short 2-3 hour drive and you’re in a whole new you never get tired of the climate.  Too hot? Head to the mountains. Sick of the snow and grey? Back to the Valley you go. Yep…Pretty much paradise in more ways than one…UNLESS you’re relegated to your couch where the draw of all there is to do nags at your very being.

  1. I am not one for being a couch potato. Phoenix has WAY too many things to see and do to hang out on the couch. Read more at
