Camper, Stump, etc.

Shortly after we got the camper and pickup we took a trip to Colorado. We purchased the camper because we were going to spend summers in Colorado after Sam retired, I quit my job, and we moved back 'home.' We didn't I mentioned at the family reunion that I would like to sell it. Just via word of mouth, we have several interested.'s what it looks like. Click on the photo to enlarge it. The front window is the 'bedroom.' The longer window is over the sofa. The little window is at the kitchen is the stove then refrigerator then bathroom. Other side of the bathroom is twin size bunk beds...going back to the front is a closet, the dinette, outside door...same bedroom.

Look at the clouds in the west. This morning about 8:30 or so.
The promised shot of the tree stump. I love the 'setup' on this. Wouldn't it make a neat painting?!

Never have taken a photo of my new Tahoe.
Here she is. Dirty. Half in the shade. But I love her! BTW, I've named her "Jewel" after her paint name...Red Jewel Tint-tone. I think it's appropriate.

Blog Win

I wasn't going to mention this until I received my prize/gift...but I can't stand NOT to!

Kathy, you remember her. I met her in person at the Houston quilt retreat along with 9 other HGTV quilters...Oh, YOU know the retreat. The one that I went to and drove this home....
...Anyway, Kathy celebrated her precious granddaughter Aidan's seventh birthday with a seven day giveaway. Can you believe that someone did not respond in a timely manner? And I WAS SECOND CHOICE!!! But, don't cry for me. 'Cause IT'S HEADED MY WAY ALREADY!

Go visit Kathy at She's an artist. Not just with jewelry should see her CQ items. You've got the web address...go visit her!

I haven't felt this good in a long time.

Hi, Sean.


We are having a beautiful show of colors this year!

Enjoy the show.

A neighbor's meadow with a new winter cover crop. Don't know what it is yet.

I need to get another shot of this:
I parked right beside the fence and snapped this just before getting back in the Tahoe. I'll try to 'frame' it better tomorrow...unless we get the predicted rain.

This Weekend

I went to the gym Friday and Saturday morning.

I did NOT clean house! But I did wash a couple of loads of clothes. One load is still in the dryer. :o)

I moved plants on the front porch into the house. Those on the back porch I grouped together and covered with sheets. Low was 38 so everything was okie dokie.

I went to Wal-Mart and got an electric blanket for Mama's bed. Changed her sheets and put the new blanket on the bed. Then visited with her.

Made homemade biscuits for breakfast.

Baked a chicken and some sweet potatoes for lunch along with fresh cooked spinach.

Visited with Sam's cousins.

Baked a loaf of bread in the bread machine.
Kept smelling the stinky trash every time I opened the cabinet under the sink. That is unusual because I generally don't throw food scraps in the kitchen trash. After loading the dishwasher, I opened the door again and thought, Whew! Gotta get the trash out. I leaned down for the DWer tablet and saw a tale sticking out underneath an upside down trap. Found the little stinker causing the stink. It was NOT this cute!I got a couple of latex gloves out of the pool supplies in the garage. I heard Sam ask, "You want me to handle that?" Well DUH! ;o)

I finished binding a quilt for a baby. Nothing special. I used "cheater" fabric...printed to look like quilt blocks. Just meandered it over all. Turned the backing over the front and basically hemmed it.

Everyone have a great week!
