Catching Up After Holiday Minor

We are, once again, company free. I want to share some of what has been going on since I last chatted you up. We had Thanksgiving late, of course. It was Thanksgiving with the Christmas decorations up, so I am going to call it Holiday Minor. My in-laws were in town to share it with us. We had way too much food and lots of fun.

I had quiet times with my dogs. Actually, I was reading one morning before I left for an appointment and my dogs just kind of joined in. My husband snapped a picture. I thought it was so funny. Maggie's foot is resting on my bible.

We had my father-in-law's birthday. I did not make that chocolate cake, btw. It was so good! There is a puzzle in the background on a table. We got that in honor of Grandma Knowlton who passed in March. She LOVED puzzles. I bought it just before everyone got here. I don't have much experience puzzling, so I thought a 2000 piecer was a good idea. Let's just say that it was an idea.

This night we went to look at Christmas lights. I think this sums up where I live.

This is a saguaro cactus covered in Christmas lights. When you live in the dessert, you adapt to everyone’s idea of Christmas. We definitely try.

This is what it looked like when we tried to get my in-laws back up the mountain. We were an hour and a half from home, and thirty-four miles from our destination. It didn't even start to snow until thirty-five miles out. We sat right in that spot for two hours before they closed the road and made us go back home. So, we had company for another day. It worked out perfectly.

There ends Holiday Minor. I will post Christmas (Holiday Major) decoration pics, tomorrow.


  1. I love all of the pictures. It looks as if you had a wonderful visit with family. Such a blessing.
