Bead Week Started

Congress, Arizona                   High 82 Low 59

Today was hot again.

Cindy had pre-registered for bead week and was able to register and pick some classes before the ones that signed up here. She ended up with 4 classes during the week. She then decided she wanted to take a necklace class in the evening to make a turquoise necklace that better went with a new dress she has and to also be able to say she made it. She has a really heavy necklace she bought at the Rock and Gem Show in Salt Lake and wanted something that weighed less.

This quilt is a raffle quilt hanging in the activity center.
I went over with her after she picked out what classes she wanted and looked around.  There are some very talented beaders here.

Penny and I will pretty much be on our own this coming week. They are putting on some activities for the men, but I’m not sure what I want to do.

Late this afternoon, there was an ice cream social in the activity center. They announced that they had sold 127 scoops of ice cream.

Cindy and I went for a walk and there were enough clouds for nice sunset pictures. Then almost as fast as we got the color it started to fade.

We then walked through the cactus garden again. There are a lot more blossoms and some of the larger cactus look like they are almost ready to bloom. 

We have seen some large white blossoms, but didn't get any pictures of them tonight.
We think this is the type cactus that has the large white blossoms.

Thanks for visiting.  


  1. I love that cactus garden. The desert in spring is so gorgeous!

  2. Okay, next year I'm staying for the cactus blooming festival!! Those are beautiful!
