We've Been Busy

Riverton, Utah High 55 Low 37

Yesterday it rained and today has been a little cooler.

This morning I went to see the Doctor and make sure I was good to go. Other than Cindy feeds me too well, he said I'm in pretty good condition. He did order blood tests for December, so I will go see the vampires before I get my next appointment. He did freeze a couple of moles on my face, but said they didn't look like anything to worry about. I've been scratching at one of them, so he agreed to freeze it and one other.

After the Doctor, I went to see my brother. When I got there there was frost all over their car, so it must have got colder than at our home.

I have a truck to sale, and it hasn't been licensed, so I stopped at the DMV on the way home to see if there was any permit I could get to let me drive it for a little while to get it sold. They told me they used to have a 96 hour permit, but had stopped them and the only way to be legal is to renew the licence. I don't want to do that, so probably will take my chances.

Cindy got her fabric hoard sorted out, and found out she had four finished quilt tops and enough material for 2 backs. The tops aren't huge, but big enough to keep one of the grandkids warm. There were also enough finished blocks to make another top. It really was a nice haul, Sandi. 

We are thinking of taking the 5er somewhere after Easter, but we don't know where, that is close by that won't be cold. We have toyed with the idea of going to Moab, but aren't sure. We both like Arches NP really well. If there, we hope it won't be too busy.

The only thing holding us here is  Cindy's Dr appointment on May 20th, so we have to be here then.

We worked on the yard some more this afternoon and it is finally looking better. There are only a few more patches of grass in with the Iris. Because of the flowers, the grass is a little hard to get out.

Tonight Cindy fixed some asparagus from our garden. She always likes vegetables from our garden.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. I just want you to know I used to have a sewing machine. However, Jim is the only one who ever used it. I just said it was mine so people would think I could sew. I wouldn't have a clue what to do with all the fabric you guys have. lol How many rooms do you have it stored in? When we finally get out of here we're going to head up through the middle of Nevada. At least I think that's what we're going to do.

  2. I get a body check and freeze of any odd looking bits every year now, just part of life in the retired lane:)
