We Made It Home

Riverton, Utah             High 73 Low 47

We have been home for a week and this post is a bit late. We had good weather all the way from Yuma. While we had a good drive poor little Penny seemed to get a little sick going over the roller coaster road (from Parker to Needles). But after we finally got to the freeway she seemed to be a lot better.

Penny must be cold at night because for the last week she has slept under the covers right next to me. I know she is going to hate tomorrow because she has to go to the vet to get some of her shots and get checked for heart worm but we need to keep her healthy.

On the way home we stopped to see our new great grand son but I can't seem to find any pictures, I don't know where they went.

We came home to snow on the mountains and all of the following flowers in our yard.

Cindy has been busy working outside and she planted some onions in the garden.

I have been busy also. So far I have quilted three baby quilts and one queen size quilt.

Last Friday was my son Ted's birthday. We went to Salt Lake City and he had his party at a local restaurant. We got to see their new daughter and my two year old grand son.

The proud family.

Cindy's Mom hasn't been doing too well lately. She fell twice in the last week and was admitted to the hospital again. We went to see her today and she seemed very weak. The chart in her room said she might get to go home on the 27th but that was only tentative.

After we saw her we delivered two of the baby quilts, one for our new great grand son and one for the next great grand son that is due anytime.

It is a little hard to tell, but this is the Lion King embroidered onto the blocks.

We found out That Cindy had made, not the fifteen quilts she thought over the winter, but 19 so I have a few more to quilt.

I had to take our truck in to get it worked on. It had a bad transmission leak that turned out to be the trans cooler lines had rubbed together until they leaked. The new ones with labor cost a little over $500 to replace.

Now they have our fifth wheel working on it. I wasn't able to get the grease fittings on the spring ends to take grease on about half of them and thought I better get it fixed before we have a problem somewhere down the road.

Thanks for visiting.
