Greetings! Hope the new year is going well for all!

We are currently gathered with friends in Quartzsite, Arizona. A fun time to catch up with those we have not seen since last year, as well as others we are fortunate enough to cross paths with more regularly.

Earlier this month we made an impromptu trip to southwest Colorado and enjoyed a week with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons there. Left the motorhome parked in the desert and drove our Trailblazer... looked like we would have a clear weather window for traveling, and had planned to stay about four days but got snowed in during one of the biggest snow storms the Durango area had seen in quite some time. Lucky for us, actually, as Kevin and Kirsten were off work for two days, and the boys were out of school due to the snow. Good times together! We celebrated Kirsten's birthday, enjoyed getting to know Owen's and Logan's new pet Guinea Pigs, and thoroughly enjoyed the time together. 
Thank you, Kevin, Logan, Kirsten and Owen for making our visit so special! Look forward to seeing you all again in a few months!

Small Swedish Weaving afghans I made for Owen and Logan :)

From beautiful snowy Colorado to the beautiful Arizona desert... what a contrast :) So grateful for our experiences in both special places!
Our little "compound" in the desert... 9 rigs, 17 people... Lee, Sue & Paul, Julie & Mike, Marilyn & Brad, Barbara & Wayne, Carol & Steve, Delcie & Freddy, Alice & Robbie, and us. A really great group of fellow travelers!
We are enjoying good times with friends! Will be here in Quartzsite for the remainder of this month before moving on to attend the gem & mineral shows in Tucson in early February.

Best wishes to all! Be well, everyone!

Dianne & Tom
