July has been a very full month. I am very blessed to have the family I do. It has given me opportunities with them to see and do many things I would not otherwise experience. I know that this blog is about quilting, but sometimes I get to write about my adventures and share them with you.
I was very excited to take a trip with my brother and his wife. They are both pilots so our adventures together are always fabulous. We flew to Sulfur Creek Lodge for breakfast on the start of our adventure.
Breakfast was great on a gorgeous day with even better company! After starting our day there, we flew to Warren, Idaho. Getting in the Toyota and loading up good friends and drinks, we headed to the Hettinger Ranch for a great ride and a day playing in the Salmon River. Laughs, smiles, conversation, and time spent with those you care about certainly makes for a good day in July.
After landing at Ryan field, we loaded into the rental car and began our adventure through the park. The last time I was here was a very special, emotional time for me so it was a little tough to return. But we had such a great time, I was excited to return. We drove the Road to the Sun, took pictures of the beautiful park, hiked on a few trails, saw great waterfalls, and just enjoyed the sunny day.
We ate dinner in Whitefish and camped for the night. After the fog lifted the next morning, we flew back to Warren for the town BBQ and fireworks. Unbelievable trip!!!
I have been quilting, doing yard work, quilting and doing yard work for most of the month. It is keeping my body and mind busy as I spend time thinking about where I have been in my life and where I am going. Funny how life changes when you least expect it. Being in Glacier brought back a huge number of memories that I need to now put away and not remember for a while. Quilting for me helps with this. I absolutely love to put the music on loud and get lost in the piece I am working on. So . . . . . .here is the next piece I am starting.
I can hardly wait to get it in the frame and quilt it. Thank goodness I am blessed with family, friends, gardens, and quilting. Makes for a peaceful, calm, good life.
My sister had a birthday this month and I spent a great time visiting and eating very good food. She should have a birthday every month so I get to enjoy evenings with great people and great food. Happy Birthday month, Trin.
My daughter and her boyfriend came for a great weekend to celebrate her birthday. I have missed them so much. It did my heart good to be able to see them and spend time visiting and hugging and hugging.
I wish it was her birthday every weekend so we could spend it together. Needless to say, I cried when they were dropped off at the airport.
I also just spent a great weekend with my darling grandson. We spent yesterday swimming in the most amazing saltwater pool and enjoying the most beautifully landscaped yard.
He loves sleepovers and time with his best friend Aspen.
