Summer Is Here

 Riverton, Utah             High 94 l    Low 64

It finally got really hot. We had one day that got to 100, and then got cool again. Tomorrow is supposed to get to 100 again and then in the upper 90's for the next 10 days. The only good thing is that our humidity only gets to 30% on a really bad day. I don't know how people stand it when the temperature is in the upper 90's with 95% humidity.

Cindy has been busy trying to get the garden going. Here are a few more pictures.

I have been busy quilting and got some more quilts finished. Cindy made one too many tulip blocks and rather than not use it, we put it in the middle of the back. The quilt wasn't hard to do, but had so many patterns, that it took a while to do.

The next one, Cindy called stars and strips because of the colors. I used a star pattern mostly, except for the outer border.

We decided to bite the bullet and get our 19 year old car's AC fixed. It probably cost more to fix than the car is worth, but we decided with the low (for it's age) mileage it was probably worth it. It is nice to have AC and we probably wouldn't be able to drive it without the air conditioning. I don't know how people could drive cars before ac was put in them.

Lots Of Garden Work

 Riverton, Utah        High 95 Low 67

Summer has got here a little early. Tomorrow is supposed to get to 100, which for this time of year, is awfully hot. We could be in Yuma, where it has already got to 110.

Cindy has been busy with the garden. she has lots of plants coming up.

There are lots of flowers in bloom and getting ready to bloom.

We have a good cherry crop this year again and I sprayed the fruit trees a few days ago and have to spray every two weeks. 

Our old car's air conditioner developed a leak and it is so hot I took it in to check what is wrong. I'm not sure a 19 year old car is worth fixing, but for the year 115,000 miles isn't that many, so we will see what they find.

In between everything else I managed to quilt three more quilts.

This Christmas panel is exactly the same size as the Beach panel and Cindy used the same pattern for it. They were quick easy all over patterns for my machine and didn't take long to do.

The quilt I'm working on now isn't hard, but there are a lot of different patterns in it and it is a larger quilt, so it is taking me a while to quilt.

Thanks for visiting.

 Riverton, Utah        High 75 Low 56

I decided that since we no longer own the fifth wheel. I would put a picture of Mount Denali in it's place. This picture is from when we went to Alaska in 2013.

The weather today was great. According to the weather guessers, it is supposed to be about 20 degrees warmer than usual later this week. 

Cindy's rose bush has put out a lot of roses, it is bigger with more blossoms than we have ever had. Probably because of the cool May. 

Cindy's garden is finally coming up. She thought some of her seeds weren't going to grow, so she replanted and now the original seeds have sprouted along with the ones she replanted. It looks like she will have a large garden.

We planted a few strawberries last year and they have spread all over. I picked a few today and there are a lot more berries coming.

In between everything else, I managed to finish another quilt.

This started out as an oriental panel, which she divided and put small strips between the cuts. I used an oriental (pagoda) pattern which doesn't show too well on the front. but shows up very well on the back.

There is still lot's to keep us busy.

Thanks for visiting.
