Back Online!!

I’m finally back online!!! After 10 days without internet, I have so much blog reading waiting for me to catch up!!! It felt so good to be connected to the world again~~

So how was everyone’s Thanksgiving holiday? DH and I went to Yosemite National Park and it was awesome!!!! I knew there might be snow but I didn’t expect it being covered!! It turned out that there were a storm before we arrived and another on the day we were leaving!!! We got a real taste of winter alright!!

Driving in that kind of condition was really a big challenge. It was also our first time driving with snow chains!! We skit and slid and slipped on our way down and were both exhausted when we got home from our 9-hour drive, but the scenery was so worth it!!

We were very fortunate to have great weather on the first couple of days we were there, although many trails and roads were closed for the season, we still managed to do some short hikes visiting the waterfalls.

It’s amazing how fast weather could change. This photo below was taken on our last day in Yosemite, and that is not a black and white photo!!!

We had such a great time at Yosemite!! I’m so glad that I didn’t back out of it because of our move. I know it has been a while since I show any stitching progress. Well, there is not much of that going on right now. I was so busy during the day that I basically collapsed into bed every night. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back into my daily routine soon!!!
