We love Arizona and so far the winter has been typical for the state. Very warm during the day and chilly at night. We have not seen a drop of rain since we got here and word has it that they have actually gone over 90 days without rain. We really can’t complain about the weather, but I’m sure the farmers aren’t too happy about it.
We took a trip this week down to Casa Grande to the Wuertz Gourd Farm last week and stocked back up on gourds. Since we’ve been here, I’ve had some time to stock my Etsy shop and chicken gourds are my biggest seller. Keeping them in my shop especially this time of year can be daunting. Luckily my gourd source is right here.
Hundreds and hundreds of gourds to choose from. It is fun to go from basket to basket and imagine what that gourd could become. I actually tried to branch into other animals at one point, but the chicken gourds are what everyone wants. So there is that.
Back at the RV Resort, I’ve been following folks around taking photos of events, and making a nuisance of myself. Folks are slowly warming up to me. I have to say that the first few weeks were a little tough. People get suspicious when you are constantly taking photos of them.
Ralph, on the other hand, has no problem with it.
Last week, I covered the Golf Scramble, Bowling, went on another fun motorcycle trip, went to several dinners, and some great entertainment. Here is a short clip of the entertainment from last Friday night.
This week we are going on another mystery tour and I will be documenting a ladies shopping trip out. Lots of Christmas things going on too.
Which means that we cannot help but get in the Christmas spirit. We decorated up the inside of the coach. And I have Christmas music playing in spite of Dave’s raised eyebrows. (Normally our radio is set on all Ozzy all the time). It’s Christmas, so I win.
Another project that is getting finished finally is my Words to Live By Block of the Month quilt. I started releasing the free patterns on my website, Suzy’s Sitcom, in January. And I am finally finishing it! It is always nice to complete a project.
If you are into quilting, the pattern is available free of charge on my website until end of January 2018.
Yep. Busyness. That is my theme right now.

I love that picture of Ralphie. He’s smiling!
Great song! Loved dancing to it years ago. The quilt is beautiful.
