What I did while in the car for almost twenty hours...
This past weekend we made the trip down to New Mexico to see my new niece. It was a great trip, although very short. We spent a long time in the car to get down there. It was about a ten hour trip one way.
We left around 1 o'clock on Friday and arrived around 11. To occupy myself along the way, I took many pictures.
Most of these were taken from the window of the car as we were rolling down the highway.
The above picture is from a gas station at the Raton exit off of I-25. It is a pretty impressive view from a gas station!
My favorite part of the drive was the windmill farm we passed. All of those tall structures you see along the horizon are windmills. There must have been a hundred of them surrounding the road that meanders through them all along the edge of a mesa top.I also worked on my yo yo quilt. I have around 200 4x4 squares. Along the way, I started sewing them into 8x8 squares and then into long strips. I would guess that this is almost 1,000 yo-yo's.
