Oops!!! Would you believe Silent Sunday???

Sorry!!  I was traveling and out of town and missed Silent Saturday!  My bad!  I didn't have time to schedule one.  Ha!  We went to Las Cruces, New Mexico....our future home spot!!!  Thought I would share some pics of our stay!!

For three wonderful days, we stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn!!  Ahhh, bliss!!!

our select comfort bed!!!!

Even the elevator area was beautiful!!!

The lobby and dining area was magnificent!!

Then there was the amazing views of the mountains...the Oregon Mountains!!

Then, sadly our visit was over...but we still had wonderful scenic views to see on our way out of town!!

We listened to a book on tape, Fallen...(I forget the author right now).  Anyway, made the trip seem so much shorter!! 

Dr. John was interviewing, with other professors, a new candidate for a position at New Mexico State University!!  Dr. John is part of the steering committee.  He really enjoyed himself.  We hope that when we move down there;  Dr. John will be teaching at NMSU!!  That will be so cool!

When we get settled, I hope to work on my Masters' Degree in Art and then I want to teach as well.  College level!  These are our "retirement" plans.  Ha!!  No retiring for us!  Just a change of careers of sorts!! 

So anyway!  We had a fabulous time and it was warm and sunny for the entire stay.  Go up to 75 degrees Fahrenheit!  Ahhhhhh!!!   I needed that!!

Hope you all have a magical and blessed day!

Hugging you

You and your husband really do inspire me! Gorgeous place you stayed out and what a view you have in your part of the world. Wow! It is cold and gray here today with a nice sheet of ice everywhere just waiting for the snow that is suppose to fall on top of it, so no going anywhere for us today. A perfect day for cooking up a big pot of soup and to bake some fresh bread. Happy Sunday to you and yours! XX

That hotel looks so comfortable. I wish it were 75 degrees here! We got dumped on with snow last night.

That was a very classy hotel and I loved the look of it. They were very fond of urns, weren't they?
The surroundings of the beautiful countryside was magnificent.
So pleased you had such a fabulous time.

Moving? Shudder. I find this to be one of the most challenging events in life. As a young'un I moved frequently, but in last 23 years we've moved 3 times and still I dread it. Will you be closer to your family? I do admire your "up for anything" attitude. I'm more of a "hide and maybe it will go away" sort (Cancer the crab, don't you know).
