I’ll be on the road again today, covering the miles between Phoenix and southern California, although with gas prices the way they are, it will be a much more expensive trip than the last one! I have to steel myself for the cost of that one tank of gas necessary to get before coming back home next Monday. Sigh.

At any rate, I have some unused orange squares so I thought I’d squander them today to get you through the week without me, even though yesterday ended the square challenge. 🙂 Wasn’t that thoughtful? Becky, I did sneak in one non-square, so just ignore that one and go with the rest.

Keep well, all of you, while I’m gone.

    Nice pictures beautiful orange colours. Had to smile reading your comment on petrol prices. I believe the average for Southern California is around $1.26 per Litre, the equivalent here in the UK is around $1.96 😦

  3. Your roll with orange continues … and that’s a good thing!

    • For some reason your comments only show up if I go into the part with all the things like comments, widgets, pages, etc., not in the pulldown part on the top right of the blog. Weird, but I keep looking. 🙂

    Safe travels Janet!
    And fingers crossed gas prices come down a bit –
    And the photos flowed so well
    For the plethora of orange and the opening photo is my fav today

    • That’s one of my favorites from back in Illinois. Gas prices are high here but not as bad as I was afraid they might be. I made it safely which is always a blessing, especially given the traffic. 😉

        Oh so glad you made it safely –
        And a few years ago we were in the market for a new vehicle and our friends had a 2015 Honda Pilot that was sitting for more than a year (the guy had health issues) and we could have had for a very low cost but had to pass on it because Janet- it was a gas guzzler and we were not in the mood for that! No way – not just price of fuel during the high times / it was also just silly to use such a large boat boat of a vehicle for tjlhe local driving we were doing. But man it was also so solid and tempting – and the kind of vehicle that makes road trips even better

        Anyhow – glad gas
        Prices were not too bad and have a good week

    Hope you’ve had a nice trip. Love the brilliant orange to light up the feed one more time. I loved the leaf caught up in the ice. Kind of symbolic. Is it hanging on…or letting go? donna

    • I’m in California right now, Lisa, hanging out with our daughter and son-in-law. Good times. The leaf was doing whatever it is leaves do in winter and posing beautifully while doing it. 😳😁. Wasn’t that profound? 😂😂😂
