I had a scare a few days ago, I was trying to find my Retreat plane reservation, and had a hard time finding them in my email.  Search for Southwest Phoenix Trip didn't yield anything, finally found it using Southwest Phoenix.  then I saw 2/24 and thought I had made reservations for the wrong year!!  then I thought I made it for the wrong date cause i was thinking last years dates.  It was a tense few moments till I realized the world was not turning on it's head!!

In my defense, I was on my phone, cause I was  at Pat Haven's house in Estancia New Mexico, waiting for the snow to clear from I 40.  I had foolishly decided to go to Prescott, where my Florida brother and his family was going to be family vacationing in Sedona, and I hadn't seem my niece and nephew and families in years, so according to the 10 day forecast, it was going to be pretty clear!!  Wrong!!  But I made it out there and had a great visit, but decided to get to Pat's and wait for I40 to clear of snow.  Hilda got home and came over Monday, so we had a great sew weekend and Monday, I headed back Tues when the roads were clear!  This, after a week trip to Texas for a wedding and visit to Mishii and Jonna's murder room.

I will stay at home till retreat, honest!!

Glad i-40 cleared for you.  It can be treacherous.

Yeah, I couldn't believe when I saw that you had made another long road trip so soon after Xmas week!  But glad you got caught up on some time with family and friends.

Yea, i got home from Texas and hubby just asked me if I was going to Prescott.  I  hadn't planned on it, but thought...hum...well, hell, I'll go!!  The 10 day weather forecast in new Mexico and AZ was a lie, but I managed to dodge the worst of the weather.  Stopped in Gallup the first night in snow, then hairy till I got to AZ line, then decent till Flag.  Then on the way back dodged the snow and got to Estancia, when the snow came and I waited it out at Pat's house, then came home!!  Son Kelly had a time getting back to Vegas, snowy till he got to Kingman, then he was OK.

It was a fun time, got to see some relatives I hadn't seen in forever, glad I went!

Fought a head wind going out and got 21 miles to the gallon.  Had the same wind going back, but this time in my favor and got 33 miles to the gallon.

Mow to get ready for retreat!!

Yes, it can!  I have spent 9 hours sitting on I 40 in the snow before.

I have an odd question:  can I cut the pieces for this block with one of my accuquilt cubes?  I need practice with the beast and am thinking……. Kill two birds with one stone. If I can - any clues on due sizes?  I’m a novice with the thing
