A little jaunt

Hubby and I took a little jaunt to Palm Springs, Calif. this past week-end. We have driven by here many times on our way to L.A. but never visited here. Calif. is not my hubby's favorite place due to their gun laws but we do go on occasion. Our hotel was just the nicest little place. It was small and intimate and charming...(double click on pictures for the best view).

The weather was simply wonderful and our stay included a nice breakfast...

Palm Springs sits right next to a mountain so the views are amazing...
and even though we didn't use the pool it was pretty to look at..
We took the Palm Springs aerial tram and though it was a bit expensive, it was an amazing view!!
Above 8000 feet
We got a big kick out of these lighted menu's at the casino restaurant and
they also had wonderful food!
Even though my back is still bad and hubby has this cough he has had forever...we had a good time and am glad we ventured out for one of our little jaunts:)

In all my enthusiasm for spring I "sprung" my back...
The only good thing is that I have been doing a lot of sitting and I
 finished the scarf...


I like it but realize I don't have anything to wear it with...hmmm maybe I need to go shopping:)

Breakfast for one

Did you know you can be prepared to have orange juice anytime you want even if it is only for one person?  Just take a bottle of orange juice and pour it into ice trays and freeze. Each cube will be about 2 tbl. remove and put in a freezer bag and remove and thaw as wanted....
What a nice treat to have juice without having to drink the whole bottle:)

Most of you know, I knit for preemie babies for charity (see side bar) so when I saw this scarf
On this this blog..
and fell in love and bought the yarn and started it....
I found out that bigger items and new stitches are a bit of a challenge!
Even though the colors are not quiet what I thought they would be I think I am going to be successful if I can just be patient and I do love the pattern.

A friend of my husband, wife passed away and she was a avid quilter. He sent this one home to me and it brought lots of color to my room.
