Almost Christmas

We are still carting stuff down the driveway to the motorhome, those cupboards I thought were going to be empty—not so empty any more and I have another load ready to go.  Cleaned out both freezers this morning and loaded that stuff into the motorhome freezer—I did a good job this year, not buying any type frozen stuff for about six weeks so the coach freezer wasn’t so packed. 

I made a pot of beef/vegetable soup for on the road eating.  I also used one of the packages of spaghetti sauce I had made and froze to make another eat on the road meal.  We both after a hard day’s drive hate to try and find a place to eat out in a strange town, usually in the dark!

IMG_1487 Hey, stop taking my photo Mr. Red says!  We have three of these feeders into which we place a big round bale of hay.  Lonn comes over periodically to check the feeders and refill if needed.  The horses also have shelter they can enter if needed—our horses as do most horses, prefer to be out.  About the only time we see our horses use their shelter is to avoid the bugs in the summertime. 

Tonight we had a wonderful dinner with Jill and Terry at the Grand—said our goodbyes and see you later’s—hopefully they will be coming down to visit us this winter. 

Two more sleeps or as Michael said they say in the military—a day and a wakeup. 


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours!!..have a great holiday weekend!!!

  2. Merry Christmas Janna and Mike and family...we too are hauling stuff and still loading up....there more sleeps here :) safe!!

  3. I know you are anxious to get going, but I will miss your stories of life at home - I love your life! Just I'll just have to be happy reading about Florida and warm sunshine. :) Merry Christmas, you two. Sorry we won't see you this year.

  4. Merry Christmas, Janna and Mike. Looks like you will have a white one. Green one here but that is easier for the folks who go visiting. Have a good one!

  5. She loved it. This may go thru 2 times. I really loved the quilt. The quilting makes the quilt. I keep starring at the cubes and the 3-d effect. If anyone is in Wickenburg AZ Jan 13 or 14th is will be on display at our quilt show. Then in March it will be in the AZ State Quilt show. Janna and I are hoping that it will place in its category as there will be many amazing beautiful quilts at that show.


  6. Merry Christmas Janna and to Mike!
