Friday – Day 8

January 23, 2011

We did not fall off the face of the earth or into the Pacific ocean!

We arrived here in Palm Desert (right next to Palm Springs) on Friday around 1:30pm .Yes, we made it!

We have spent the time since then setting up our place, hanging quilts everywhere there is space because all the walls in our apartment are white, and finding our way around. I have some great pictures of the desert and this area and will post them soon.

I just purchased a 6′ folding table so I can set my machine up and start quilting again. I can feel a desert scene coming on…

My husband and I just got back from lounging in the hot tub that us just outside our door. We were surrounded by palm trees and the weather was so balmy – it is wonderful here!

Sorry to you folks who are enduring winter’s choke hold! Hope you are keeping warm enough and having ‘you’ time around a roaring fire.

    Hi Carol and Trevor,

    Glad to hear that you made it safe and sound. The pictures are awesome and it sounds like you had great travelling weather and no major problems. Maria and I loved the MacDonald’s picture best. lol My least favorite picture was the green grass and the palm trees. We are just a little bit (no alot) jealous. We are suffering a sunny -10 degrees today and it looks like the hottest weather for the next week is around -8. So….. I hope you are enjoying the balmy weather and the hot tub! We miss you guys already and can’t wait for you to “come home” to PEI.

    Love Dan and Wendy

    Hi guys, happy that the long road trip is over but I know you saw many “quilts” as you drove. We did indeed miss you at church and really look forward to having you back again. Enjoy your time in the sun! We wish Trevor all the best as he begins his job and hope it’s everything good. Blessings and love.

    Jack and Vikki
