We had a wonderful surprise on Thursday when our friends Wendy and Cindy called us and said they had read our blog and saw we were in Holbrook. They were planning on coming through Holbrook and said they would arrive on Saturday and would be staying till Tuesday. What a great surprise ! Our friend, Ross, from Denver also arrived on Saturday after finishing his workamper job at Boyce Thompson State Park. He had to lead what was supposed to be a five hour hike and turned into an eight hour ordeal, which put him on the road much later than he had anticipated. The girls arrived around mid-day and Ross got in around 8 on Saturday night.
We decided to take all of them to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest today. We had such a good time, hiking and taking in all of the sights.
On Thursday we drove to Flagstaff to call on some customers. When we left Holbrook, it was sunny and warm although the weather forecast said it might rain. After we had been in Flagstaff, for just a little while, it started snowing like crazy. Wet, sloppy snow covered the car and me while we were out selling. Thank goodness Linda brought some jackets cause we were freezing. Linda had shorts on and I had capris on which made it pretty chilly. Guess it’s not all that uncommon to have snow in Flagstaff this time of year, due to the 7000’ elevation. We surely weren’t expecting it !
Overall, it was an awesome weekend. We are heading out in the morning for Snowflake and Show Low for an early morning appointment and a day of selling down there. It’s 45 minutes to Snowflake and on from there to Show Low. Hoping for a good day. We have one more evening with Cindy and Wendy before they head out.
Hope everyone’s week is a good one !
