I really meant to post on the 1st, but so many things happen. Jeez. The main reason was after returning from our trip to California for Christmas, I developed the dreaded head cold from hell, and it is just now starting to go away.
Had a great time in SoCal. Did some hiking, up a mountain into the snow!!!! Beautiful views though. Had a great Christmas with my son and his new girl, and did more hiking at Joshua Tree National Park.
Here are some pics.
|Hiking up to the San Bernadino trailhead. We're in SoCal, it's supposed to sunny and warm!!!!|
|View from the trail. Worth the trek up there.|
|This is at the Oasis in Joshua Tree National Park. It was a cool but beautiful day.|
|After lecturing my grown son on the dangers of rock climbing, I proceeded to get up on a rock and fall off!!! Bunged up my knees. You should have seen me tuck and roll, lol. No more of that stuff for this old lady....|
Jack and Lisa got me these kits for Christmas. They picked the patterns and then bought the fabrics to go with it. You sure can tell my son is the child of a quilter!!! I have started on the twister tree. It will be so cute!!!
Dave and I celebrated our 40th anniversary on January 3rd. Went to see the Hobbit then out to dinner. Was a really nice evening. I even wore a skirt!! Tried to take a nice picture of us but just couldn't get back in time to get set for the timer. But here we are, as dressed up as we ever get.
The newest thing going on in my life is my grandson and his family are moving here from Minnesota and we have offered to let them stay with us for a while to save some money until they buy a house. They will be leaving to drive here on January 31st. I hope they stay til the end of the year, but it is up to them. We will be tickled to have little children running around here. I have missed being called Grandma!! So, life will be busier, and filled with wonderful noise for a while.
Hope everyone has had a good new year so far. I know I have.
