It's Awww Monday! April 17, 2017


We met this cutie pie dog last
weekend - his name is Moonshine!
Adorable!  

 
Here's a photo of our blooming
Orchid Cactus. We've had this plant
for years and it only started blooming
when we moved. The original plant belonged
to Russell's Grandmother Grace Bebe.
Below is another photo where you can see
how big this plant is! 
 
 
 
Thanks to Sandee for Awww Monday!
Have a great week!

Six Words and Sunday Shadows! April 1-2, 2017

I love riding the Amtrak train....
 
 
 
Leaving the Portland Oregon Union Station...

 
Crossing the Willamette River...
I'll be on the train for 10 hours
and will arrive in Dunsmuir CA
around 12:30am!
 
 
Bye bye jam packed traffic... 

 
Leaving Eugene and heading to Chemult...

 
Last photo as it is getting dark...
I've been sitting in the dome car as I love
seeing the world go by and it's always
fun meeting fellow travelers.
Everyone has a story. 
Now I'll go back to my seat and read...

 
Ahhh...nothing better than being home!
And our turkeys are back!   

 
Have a lovely day wherever you are!

Awww Monday and Baby Quilts! March 20, 2017

 
Two more babies about to be born...
Here's one for a little girl expected late March...
( the binding isn't completely stitched down) 
 

 
Looking closer....
 

 
And here's the other quilt-
not sure if it's for a boy or girl....
but either way he or she will
 be cozy while sleeping.
 

 
Another closer look....
Have a lovely day and a great week.

Thanks Sandee!

Six Words and Sunday Shadows March 11-12, 2017

Good day for a road trip!!!
 
 
 
Yep....we're off road first heading to
Bahia San Basilio......
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
I spotted this boulder and it immediately
inspired me to make some stone sculptures.... 
 
 
One...

 
Two...
 
 
 
Three...
 
 
 
Once we got back on Highway #1
we headed back down south and
then hung a right and found the
San Juan Bautista Londo Mission.
Which was essentially a pile of rubble
next to this cemetery. 

 
 

 
One Hundred Twenty years old???

 
Just one wall with a window....
