Who has that “I ate the WHOLE thing” feeling? I know I sure did…even after a long hike!
Yesterday we hiked the ‘hills’ that run along the Desert Cities in the Coachella Valley…they run from Palm Springs right out to Indio and LaQuinta. The hills in the pictures are behind Palm Desert.
This type of terrain is the exact opposite to the lush rain forests of home (West Coast Canada) and I love it! The trails traverse back and forth as you slowly zigzag up the mountains and you often find that you have not only traversed up one mountain but that you are now on the mountain out in the distance! Now how did that happen?
I also get a dizzy feeling if I look down…where your stomach does a flip-flop…
All in all, we had a great day! Certainly different from the Christmas Days of past! We missed our kids…but after phone chats with them we felt much better! The rest of the day was spent with my audio book and stitching…a very nice day!
I wiled away the afternoon big Stitch quilting on the Jan Patek Moda Sew Along Quilt….and listened to a little of Nicholas Sparks audio book, “The Longest Ride”…VERY good with a little twist at the end…a good kind of twist! Oh man…I just gave away the WHOLE story!!
And when my arthritic stitching finger got sore, I switched to this…haha….I HAD to get to THAT ending!
So Christmas is over for yet another year! Is it just me or are the Christmases coming faster and faster, with shorter periods in between? Christmas 2015 will be here before we know it! Only 364 days of stitching left until the BIG day! And yes, I’m on it…how about you?!
Have a FUN Friday…It’s Boxing Day and I am VENTURING OUT!! (In Canada, Boxing Day is HUGE…like Black Friday down here! I will let you know how it compares!)…Oh…and Happy Stitching!!~P
