Last day of July, the summer is just sliding away, day by day. We have had way hot weather, soooo thankful that we have air conditioning, WHAT did I do before this grand event? I am really pampered. Just found out today that the water was only goin on twice a week instead of every other day on the odd days, NOW we should get some greening up of things around here. Had a huge thunder storm and pouring rain for about 10 minutes last night, about 7pm, turned the sky yellow, it was weird, but nice afterwards and a cooler breeze in the window at bedtime. THAT was a really nice change. Doing the Deschutes County Fair this afternoon, I know this will be a mistake, but just can't miss it, love the local fair and all of the crafts, hopefully will get some pics to share .
Have a good day.

Well, am trying to get this blog so others can view, but for some reason am having a little trouble, but will go on writing anyway.
Have been crocheting and finished an afghan for a friend. and this one adds on as you go, in the final round, which i really like, as I like doing the squares or whatever, but fairly can't stand to sew them all together, takes a long time to show any results and seems as if mine sort of look all cobbled together, much better like this way and this one turned out so colorful, it is something to last forever!! Hopefully
And for my friend Carol H, no, i have not yet gotten to the 'craft' table or room. This is the bane of my existence and something that i always say i am going to DO this today, always, and then something comes up, or i don't 'feel' like it, but will use ANY excuse to NOT go in there and 'clean' and it most of the time looks like this, and sometimes worse after i have cleaned, then started on a project, does anyone else have this problem? probably not, everyone else in the world is more than likely neat and clean and organized :) lol......... which is something that you cannot for sure say about me. BUT in other aspects of my life i am, so this is where the worst comes out, my little corner of the dissorgainized world.
Take Care & God Bless

My First post...What will this be like? I just bought an RV and will be traveling a bit, But not starting really until next year. But I do some moving about and visiting here and there and want to be able to share with friends and family.
That is how this is starting and maybe that is how it will end.
This is Luci, my pups. She is a lovey and my constant companion. And will be a big part of my life and writings.
We just got back from a trip to McMinnville and Lincoln City, the beach, love the beach. Did not find any shells, but did find some agates, which are just about as good. Luci did not like the soft sand as it came up to her tummy when she stepped out onto it. Not a good thing. She put on her brakes and would not go, it took a little bit of time to move forward.
My Niece Jeri May and I stayed with our friend and (sister of the heart) Janmarie and her bitsy dog, Stella...a new addition that is FINALLY getting along with everyone.
She weighs all of 2# and barks from her very guts!!!
We just shopped and ate our way thru Lincoln City and McMinnville.
McMennimums is a favorite in Mac and this time we got to eat on the very tip top terrace and had a great view and wonderful hamburgers. Then went to the Evergreen Air Museum and saw the Spruce Goose. We can say we have been there. It was very expensive and way beyond hot!!! the temp must have been close to 100 I am sure!
My other sister and room mate (her house) DeeDee was not able to come, as she has to work, don't you know. Well Janmaries does too, but she took some time off, she is a defense attorney and can schedule :). Deedee works at the hospital in Bend and does not have that flexibility, BUT she went to the beach with me in April
Here she is with her pups, Pepper. He was a rescue dog from a hoarder in Eastern Oregon, and she has worked with him so much, he finally accepts pettings and some love. But is still very timid, she has had him for about 4 years now and is a sweet soul.
So that is my start
I am on my way to Iowa to visit another friend about mid August and when i get back in or around October, I will be going to California to pick up and learn to drive the RV and start on many more adventures.
Take Care & God Bless...
