It's so nice to have a free overnight stop-over that includes good friends. A relaxing dinner at our home-on-wheels with Kevin and Bridgette makes for the perfect "break" in our return drive. We're up and gone at sunrise Friday morning. It's a pretty time of day we rarely see.

That revelation aside, it's sweet pulling into our driveway. Everything is just as we left it (would have been nice if the new year fairies had taken down all the Christmas stuff), and this time it does feel like home.
A couple days later our crew returns to start Phase II of the remodel. Our goal is to be done before Super Bowl. Then the kitchen will be complete and we'll be through until we return from the road at the end of the year. Then we'll tackle the bathrooms!
|This phase includes a new custom cupboard and the new counter tops due on the 29th.|
|We're often treated to subtle sunsets.|
The drive home is so pretty with the sun setting, making the desert glow. I love this time of day!

|I still find it odd to have fog in the desert!|
These two have done so much work creating their beautiful desert adobe home. When we're expecting company I might prepare some snacks and fluff the pillows, Mike and Janna build a half-bath!

|Nearly impossible to remember how it looked when they bought it. It's fun following their progress on her blog!|
|The pups are very happy the treat lady has come to visit!|
|The clouds give us an especially beautiful drive home.|
|Meanwhile back in SoCal, our number five grand, Henry Miles, is just perfect.|
