All that frosty grey on my hat and giant scarf is snow!

Happy December everyone!

I am in Prescott, AZ, field testing my Crochet Gear! LOL!  OK, that’s not really the purpose of our visit, but I have enjoyed the opportunity to none-the-less.

We just got in tonight and it started to snow!  Super pretty!  Dear hubby and I enjoyed a walk in the snow around the square after dinner tonight.  (For those who might not know, we’ve only seen snow in Austin maybe 4 times in the last 17 years and where I grew up, I only saw it about 3 times as a kid, so any snow is a pretty treat for me!)

It’s not quite our anniversary, but it’s close and we’ll be celebrating 16 years.  The grand ‘rents are staying with the kids back home, holding down the fort and giving us this time together.  It’s a blessing I sure won’t turn down!  And the ‘rents and kiddos are getting quality time too.

Got a plan in the works while I’m here this year.  While hubby’s taking care of work tomorrow, I’m scheduled to take a Kumihimo class at the local yarn store A Good Yarn.  You might remember I blogged about them last year.  I drop by and see them every time we come.  They’ve moved recently and I look forward to seeing their new digs and visiting with folks I’ve met in years past.

Saturday afternoon I’m catching up with yarnies at Method Coffee.  And sometime before we leave, I’ll be seeing about dropping by Peaceful Prairie Alpaca Ranch to see Wendy.

We ate at Prescott Brewing Company tonight.  It’s a favorite of ours, along with their Christmas ale.  Seriously, all their food seems to be top notch, as are the brews.  I try something different each time and am always pleased.  On our walk earlier, I noticed a shop with Tibet imports I want to check out.  Also have to be sure and go by the Arts Prescott Gallery Coop.  That’s where I found my gorgeous blue dichroic glass necklace that everyone loves.  It’s a great shop of several local artists’ work.  And I’ll stop by Bead-It on Whiskey Row.  And there are a couple homemade type candy shops too.  Plus we should be able to catch the city’s lighting of the courthouse on Saturday.  It should be fun!

All in all, I look forward to a pleasant visit and lots of photos and reporting. Provided we aren’t snowed in!
