Memorial Day 2011

Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day. We went to the cemetary in Burley so DH could take part in the service. It was overcast and a cold wind was blowing. After the service we went to get something to eat and of course the sun came out for the rest of the day, but we still had the cold wind.

This week we had a ductless heat pump installed in the quilt room. It will also provide air conditioning if it ever warms up around here. It's a nice small unit, runs quietly and doesn't take up any floor space.

Last week Dh went to Kalispell, MT for the wedding of our nephew. I managed to make a Double Irish Chain Wedding Quilt for him to take. I had enough blocks made so I am making another one for the grandson for his graduation quilt. Then I have one to get done for a great-neice in Bend, Oregon.

My desk top computer is once again at the computer doctor. Something really got ahold of it this time when I went to check on it I was told they were still trying to work through the computers issues. Hopefully it will get to come home this week. Well, that's what I've been doing what is happening in your part of the world?

Happy Mother's Day

Well, here I am again. Spring is trying to arrive, but it's been 1 step forward and 2 steps back.

Yesterday we went to Twin Falls to run some errands. The important one being the renewal of my military ID card. DH had to go so he could claim me. After getting that all taken care of we went to Costco and I stopped at Joann's for a quick visit. On our way out of town we went to Shoshone Falls. They have been releasing water from a dam upstream so the falls were looking like what the Indians and the pioneers saw when they stopped. The first picture is of the falls when we went in July 2010 with the grandson, and the second picture is how they looked yesterday. Huge difference. They are called the Niagara of the West. If you look carefully in the second picture you can see a small rainbow at the bottom of the picture just to the right of center. It was very faint and I wasn't sure it would show up. It was a lovely day to visit the falls. There are picnic tables where you can have lunch and enjoy the view. Also, if you have a National Parks Card and a picture id you can get into the park for free even though it is a State Park. As far as I know it is the only State Park in Idaho where that is the case.

I'll have pictures soon of the baby quilt I am working on and a wedding quilt. Hope you all have a great Mother's Day weekend.
