The Magical Geomorphological Mystery Tour....

The beautiful ridges on my trip to see my son in Seattle last June .The Basin and Range province is one of the most fascinating, I think.  But then again, the state of Nevada alone has enough varied geology to keep an army of PhD candidates busy for a very long time.  The Columbia Plateau....California.... oh my, California has such a weird and wonderful geomorphology too.  And the Cascades....There are just too many places that fascinate me.  Too many to ever really master.  But that is okay, it just means interesting reading for the rest of my life.  :)

A Preservative Free Treat

Tonight I am speaking at a Quilt Guild meeting, and decided to make fruit and nut bars.  A non-sequitur?  Not exactly.  When I need to think, I cook.  Usually.  The two quilts are challenge quilts to commemorate the U.S. space program for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.  I am speaking on my approach to challenges, so this seems appropriate.  I haven't ever laid out my actions in a sequential manner, so this will be a first too! Not quite on the same scale, but....

Shenandoah Fiber Festival

I do love fiber festivals! This one was in Berryville, and there was much more than I remember from years ago.  (Why am I surprised?)  The food was surprising acceptable (thanks Boy Scouts) and the vendors were full of yummy fiber and fabulous tools.  I bought.... well, fiber!  Fleece, yarn, and even a beautifully turned shawl pin.  Petting fiber ranks right up at the top of my sensory favorites!

So this is year two and a half of a five year plan to renovate and redecorate my sweet little camper trailer.  I have resealed windows, re-resealed one window, replaced a screen, replaced hardware, and sanded, cleaned and repainted the main room.  I have removed a bed and table, and ripped out old fabric.  My plan for next summer is to check the seals and redo the roof if needed, replace the floor and paint the ceiling.  Maybe replace the counter as well.  When I get through, it will be AWESOME!  If only it was closer so I could work on it in-between Pennsics.  Ah well, it is what it is, and I am loving not sleeping in the damp and mud.  And NO EARWIGS! Still lots to do.
