WOYWW #195

Last week we left for Phoenix for NASCAR. First though I spent Friday with some online friends. Thats coming in a post when I get home and blogging is easier. On monday I met up with online friends again , great day. Here is my on the road desk, my knee. My journal.

The trip home was filled the unexpected including the overnight camp ground stop where they only were in the office 9 am to 4pm. We arrived at 6 pm so they were closed and had to wait until 9am to pay and leave; then the fridge door dropping off en route. Chris fixed it with duct tape. We arrived at Fort Stockton at 7.30 pm. The route fro Benson AZ crosses endless miles of dessert, high plateau with only shrubs and occasional trees. In New Mexico the winds were so strong the mountains were hidden. It was a long day. It always blows me away to think that people crossed this area on foot. The terrain is so tough and sparsely inhabited even now. The first 20 0hundred miles into Texas are the worst!

  2. What would we do with out Duct tape? LOL We cross areas in Utah that sound the same as you 200 miles into Texas, really makes you wonder about the pioneers and how STRONG they were. I always take my journals when we travel too. Yours is looking oretty spiffy!

    Your newest blogging sister, Connie :)

  5. I think about that too, when I am in various parts of the U.S. It's mind boggling to imagine pioneers crossing with just a wagon and a horse -- or less. It sounds like you've seen a LOT of the country.

  11. I tried to leave a message earlier but the battery on my Kindle Fire died so I lost that. Back to PC power now. I love your journal, and it will give you so many good memories to look back at. Hope you have a good journey home and get back to a larger desk. xx Maggie #37

  12. Hi Monica! I'm glad that you made it home okay, with a few exceptions. Thank you so much for coming to meet up with me and the others....they are still talking about those luscious books you had with! I thoroughly enjoyed looking at them and wish you lived close by so I could pour over them again and again! The colors were so
    beautiful and uplifting and so very creative.
    It was such an enjoyable day and I hope you can return again and again!
    XO,Sue

  14. Oh wonderful adventures even if the area you're travelling through is very stark. I envy you. My son lived in America for 6 years and he and his then wife embarked on a road trip before they came back here.
    Can't believe you're getting rid of all you fabric or most of it. I got into paper crafts (after having always sewn) some years ago but have gone back to fabric now with a bit of papercrafting. I need to sort out both papercraft stuff and fabric - lots of fabric that I keep looking at to throw out then think but I could make ---------- with it :-/ I've decided though I'm going to get rid of fabric I've had for years waiting to be used, knowing really it never will be!
