A Siggie and Five Dutch Treats

Some blocks to share:

Isabelle from France sent a siggie that represents her love for her three West Highland Terriers

Dinner Plate





I should get at least a couple more done today and this evening.  I've prepped quite a few to take along on the trip to Arizona.  We leave early tomorrow morning.   We're divided the driving (1200 miles) into 3 days each way.  We decide there wasn't any reason to push it since we're both now retired. 

My mother and sister, ex-husband and his wife and daughter, granddaughter from MA and grandson from VA will all be flying in, all but one on Wednesday. Too many people to stay at my son's house, so  most of us will be staying at a hotel. We'll spend most of Wednesday in Tucson helping to pick up people from the airport. 

Thursday night is the banquet for my son.  Friday is his parade, Change of Responsibility and retirement ceremony.  Saturday people start flying home but we'll stay until Monday the 14th.

Any idea how many I can get done with six travel days over the round trip, plus down time at the hotel? The route from Albuquerque to Sierra Vista will be new scenery for me, but I still find it hard to just ride and do nothing with my hands.  I'm hoping to come home with a lot of blocks done.

See you in a couple weeks!

Goodness, I can't imagine how many you could get done in 6 days of travel but then it's bumpy riding in a car....however, you will have down time will probably come home with a couple of dozen LOL.

Have a lovely trip!!
