Relaxing and Memorial Day

Sagle, Idaho        High 70 Low 46

It has been a little cooler here and almost cold at night. It rained almost all night Sunday night and a lot of yesterday. We have been told that they need the moisture and so it all is good.

The Lake has come up a lot since we've been here, but Ken still hasn't gone to get his new boat. We were going to leave this coming Friday, but Ken told us yesterday that he and Sabrina would like us to stay the weekend, so we will be heading to Lethbridge, Alberta next Monday. We have made reservations through Coast to Coast at the Bridgeview RV Park, where we stayed two years ago, for 3 nights.

While we are there we will meet up with Cindy's mom and sister and then travel part of Alberta and British Canada with them before we head toward North Dakota and some of the other States we missed last year.

Sabrina wanted to sew a quilt together, so her and Cindy went into Sandpoint last week and got some material to make it. They also got a pattern for a fairly simple lap quilt. Sabrina had to get a 1/4" quilt foot for her sewing machine which got here Thursday.

I inherited the job of showing her how to use the new foot and cut the material for her. Yesterday she finished sewing the blocks together and we all set them on a bed to see how they looked before sewing them into the quilt. It is a very random pattern and should look nice when finished. Quilting will have to wait until I get home.

Last night we watched "Unbroken" which everyone seemed to like. The Japanese POWs sure had to endure a lot and we had a hard time thinking about all the weight the actors had to loose to make the movie. I highly recommend the movie.

Today is a lot nicer day than yesterday and Cindy is busy sewing and I'm just kind of vegetating, enjoying the scenery.

I hope your Memorial Day was as relaxing as our's.

Thanks for visiting.
