New years eve day ( we saw SNOW) and a HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

Where are we today ?
        Was kinda cool last night great for sleeping, but we toasty warm. Up before the sunrise as usual and when it did come up we saw snow! (up in the mountains) lotsa snow. Good place for it to be. What a way to end the year with a snow fall. Perfect next year (tomorrow) will be much warmer and its all uphill from there.
looking towards Desert Hot Springs an the snow up there
      Got a few walkabouts done today and picked up a few groceries. Too windy to read outside so relaxed for a bit and actually were reading inside and a knock on the door. It was a fellow Blogger Allen of Allen and Lolita. Met them last year at Desert Pools resort here in DHS. They were supposed to arrive today at a resort around the corner but their trailer is still in Mountain Lakes California.  Much higher elevation, covered in snow, so they could not move it today. Just stopped in to say hi and will be here probably tomorrow and we will visit.
      A couple more walkabouts and reading then fire up our Weber Q. Gonna grill a cornish hen and add that to a tasty salad for supper.
My homemade wind screen around the Q works well
love chicken
      Next to go to the clubhouse for a New Years Eve Party, snacks , DJ dancing etc. and drop the Ball at 9 pm with Times Square at 9 pm in New York. Sounds perfect for us. BUT. The DJ was sitting with his female friend, the music was recorded and nothing that we recognized, nobody dancing, some play cards, and the clubhouse was very cold.. hmm. Three years ago we had one heck of a new years party here, great DJ dancing the place was packed. Things change.....
       May as well go home we can have more fun there. So thats what we did. We enjoyed the Times square party right here in the comfort of our own home, it was one of the best new years eve's we have had.
       Now if you are a Blogger and and RV'er and are in Quartzsite this January need to check this out. Jeri from "Just Wanderin'" suggested a BLOGGER-FEST at Q. Sounds like a great idea looking forward to it hope you can make it.
        Thanks y'all for stopping in today and want to wish each and every one of you a very Happy New Year. May it be the most exciting year of our lives so far, it only gets better every day.

  13. Happy New Year you two! I opened my curtains for the first time in almost five days. The sun is feeling good coming through the window. Later this afternoon (after the football game) I'll go for a walk then go outside and hook the hose back up. Glad you can get back outside to read. Sounds like the party at the club house was a dud.

  14. All the very best wishes for a great 2015, going forward.

    The temperatures will once again rise and the summer type clothing will once again see the light of day. It sure has been unseasonably cool in the desert though.
