I have not been here for about a week or more.  No excuses.  Trying to clean out the last bedroom of boxes so it can actually be a bedroom.  It's going slowly.  We have a couple more boxes to go to donation.  We are officially hot here in AZ.  110, 111 degrees.  Can't spend much time outside now.  

Last Friday Carrie and I drove up near Show Low to bring down a load of boxes for the sisters, Judy and Nancy.  They have sold their house up there and will be staying at Nancy's smaller house down here while they look for another bigger house.   The drive takes us through the area of devastation from the Bush fire that burned almost 200,000 acres.  It is burned down to the dirt, all black.  So sad.  Hundreds of old cacti with many arms are now gone.  On 6/13 on our way home from quilt camp we saw the start from a car along side the road that had caught fire.   The forest service was already on site.  It sure got away from them.  The dry desert and the winds.

Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July.  We did   Kids over, barbecued ribs and hamburgers.  Played a game in the back yard and then Connor spent the night and did some exploring with Bob's telescope.

I finished the top for a baby quilt.  Carrie is quilting it.  Baby was born July 2 so I have the info I like to put on the label.  Then I will get it in the mail.  I'm late to the Shout for Joy mystery quilt and have sewed up step 2's string blocks and need to trim them and move on the step 3.  Next big project is Grace's t-shirt quilt.  I'm looking forward to that.

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I’ve worked with J A Jance’s daughter for many years. She currently works for my husband.

I have taken the train for years from CA to KS and OH.  I get a small sleeper and it's not all that much more.  PLUS you get ALL your meals free.  Better yet, you can even have them delivered to your compartment.  I do recommend an upper level one though as the sound of the rails on the lower level is louder.  I don't get the one with a toilet in room.  They call them "Roomettes" Way better than a seat and all the noise of other passengers.

We miss you!  Probably can't visit this year since your state would quarantine us for 2 weeks!  Will also miss a September wedding in NY for the same reason.

I was pretty sure you wouldn't make it this year.  The state opened up a little bit for a while but now we are back to the stores requiring masks to enter.  I'm still staying pretty much at home just reading and sewing.

Anyone hear of "The Exercise Coach"? It's a new style gym here, saying they can do 20 min 2x/day and help you reach your goals. Curious.

I've been sewing masks and am working on a quilt for my step granddaughter, Courtney.  She recently bought a house and it is a house warming gift for her, Kingsize log cabin.  I'm too embarrassed to tell you what I've been reading.  I have always been a biography or autobiography book lover but since this plague has started I have started reading trashy romance books.  Gary has been gone 6 years today and I have been alone so that might be the reason.  LOL
