Christmas & New Year’s Eve
Back to Quartzsite we go! Our plan was to have a nice quiet Christmas and NYE with minimal fuss and we certainly achieved that. This time we we stayed on the north side of town at Plamosa Road BLM area. This area is nice and quiet and a lot further out in the desert than Dome Rock. Our closest neighbors were half a mile away and there was a real sense of peace and tranquility.
Our two weeks at Plamosa was pretty nice. Most days were sunny which afforded us long walks with great desert views! And what clouds we had really helped give us spectacular sunsets!
Christmas day found us in the kitchen! Mark made fabulous lox and bagels to start our day along with yummy mimosas!
Then for dinner we had the most yummy – PRIME RIB (if you don’t like red meat, look away now lol)! Our prime rib was made Paula Deen style (recipe here), with smoky green beans & bacon and herb roasted red potatoes. TASTY in the extreme! Dessert was Rum Chata over ice!
The week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve found us walking a lot (had to burn off that dinner!) and just taking short drives around Quartzsite. People were starting to roll in and the place was really filling up all around town!
For New Year’s Eve we again planned a quiet day/night. While in California we had gone to Costco and found a huge magnum of Prosecco! My favorite!
We enjoyed a wonderful day of reflection and all that we had done, seen and achieved in 2015. We know that 2016 brings a lot of fun things for us and perhaps some changes as well.
We will be working on our new property this summer and well as taking a trip out to South Carolina in August when our daughter graduates from college! This is such a huge achievement in her life and we are so proud of her and all she has accomplished. 🙂
We also hope you and your family have a wonderful, safe and healthy New Year! May 2016 bring you everything you could ever desire or deserve.
