A Southwestern White Christmas
We got to have a bit of an unexpected white Christmas here in the Southwest.
It's a bit lonely some Christmases here so far from our family and friends so when we got an invite to our friends' place in nearby New Mexico we jumped at the chance
It was an eventful ride with a close call on the highway with a two wheel drive car spinning out directly in front of us and getting stuck in the slush. Our experienced Alaskan driver maneuvered past safely with quick reflexes and saved us from the crash. We did our Alaskan duty and pushed the car out while crazy drivers were nearly ignoring our pleas to slow down.
Then we took the snowy slushy side road to get away from the inexperienced drivers that are unaccustomed to driving thru snow.
Our friends have a traditional adobe home that had two fires going so it was so cozy.
A wonderful table setting
a Mata Ortiz pot and angel
massive wooden beams overhead
A comfy bed waiting for us
destined to become a pie
Our illustrious driver and Mr. Cory
they said half the snow had already melted.
This will be my last post for 2011.
It's hard to say whether I'll get the chance to blog from India but I promise to share when I can.
See you in February...
Happy New Year you all!
