Christmas will be here soon! That statement has brought me to my knees in the past, reminding me that my time was short to finish the shopping, wrapping, cooking, baking, and just getting ready for Christmas. But now, living in our trailer full time, I can decorate for Christmas in about half an hour! I don’t bake anymore and we don’t have overnight guests staying with us. We have a ‘”creative” approach to gift giving and often don’t have much to wrap. All this to say, I miss not having a house where family and friends gather to celebrate the holidays. But as the family grows and changes with marriages and grandchildren, new plans evolve for gathering and celebrating. Bring it on, we are adaptable people!
We spent the month of November in Longmont visiting with family and friends and taking care of normal doctor appointments. It snowed once while we were there and that next morning we were greeted with this amazing scene, complete with a bald eagle in the tree.
We are now in Mesa, AZ where we plan to live until the end of March. We are settled and ready for company!
And just to prove we are in Arizona here is a picture of the Arizona icon, a saguaro cactus.
We will continue to blog about our travel adventures here in AZ. Right now, we are feeling pretty good about the weather, 60’s and 70’s and we feel even better when we watch the news and see that most of the country is in the deep freeze. Cliff is very happy about not having to shovel snow!
Merry Christmas! Cliff and Cyndy
