Happy Thanksgiving

I am still noodling around with Wordpress and their blogging software. I have to figure out how to post all of the buttons and stuff that I have worked on for here and move them over to that one, but I am finding that it's easier in some ways and not so easy in others. Posting pictures, if I use photobucket is so much easier and it works for me, but it's harder if I use the photo uploading in the blog site.

As Jo commented on the last post, it's kind of finding the one that works the best for you because we aren't paying for it and it is a free service.

We are on our way to my parent's house for the holiday weekend. We wanted to be there tonight, but we will be there sometime tomorrow. I hope it is semi early, as I have to brine the turkey, and I can't push it of on my mom, because I have the ingredients to do it. We also have to stop and finish doing her grocery shopping because she gave me a list of things she forgot and we have to get the pies for dinner. She didn't want to bake and I can't, so we're buying. We are also furnishing the sparkling cider to go with dinner. We found some at target last year that was green apple cider that was just delicious, so we were tasked with bringing it again this year.

I will leave you with a couple of shots of Monument Valley that I took today as we were driving north.
It's not a real representation of the views we saw today, but it does give you sense of the vastness. The above picture is representative of of the myriad of monoliths that litter the valley floor.

Until next time, I hope that you all have a Happy Thanksgiving and don't hurt yourself to badly if you decide to hit the malls on Black Friday. I will be out and about in Colorado Springs and Pueblo on Friday, but only to pick up some hard wood
flooring and a new mattress
for our truck (THANK YOU, GOD for new mattresses)!!!

Monument Valley is stunning. When you are in the middle of it, and you remember that aeons ago, it was an ocean floor ... it's profoundly humbling. Thanks for the pictures.

Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving. As for the mattress -- few purchases are as simultaneously as un-glamourous and as wonderful as buying a new mattress.

In New Orleans, during the recovery efforts after Katrina, I met a woman who was a cross country trucker travelling with her dog (a beagle mix). She was an owner-operator donating her time to deliver supplies to the emergency animal shelters. She showed me her rig --she had tricked out the bed compartment herself and she had a futon in there. I was impressed -- her rig looked really cozy and homey.

Hey there! I just found your blog here. I'm a trucker who also knits on the road.

You are a great photographer; thanks for the beauty.

I'm using a hotel's high speed i-net and am able to see your beautiful photos...what a treat!

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
