Ten Inches

When I got up yesterday morning, I announced that Jazz and I were heading back to AZ. The sun was shining on TEN inches of new snow that accumulated overnight. On Friday we probably got about 8 inches that accumulated then melted. The sun made our landscape absolutely beautiful.
Michael headed off to town to help his Dad on the garage project and Mom and I had a quilting paper piecing lesson. Our project turned out great--I'll post some photos of it tomorrow. I am 52 years old and have always sewed. Mom made the majority of our clothes while we were growing up and still sews for great-grandchildren so I think some of her talent rubbed off on me. But, I am totally hooked on this quilting business.
We live 22 miles from anything here in McLeod, MT. No grocery store, no gas station, no nothing. From our home we can see no neighbors nor hear any traffic. One of our main forms of entertainment is to get together with neighbors for dinner. We went to the home of friends Robin and Claire last night. They have a beautiful log home with spectacular views and live about 5 miles farther up the road from us. George and Shirley were also there and we all had a great evening. Robin is an excellent cook and Mom and I had to have TWO pieces of her strawberry pie last night. Claire is a retired biologist for the MT Fish/Wildlife/Parks and Robin is Robin! She has lots of interests, designed the home she had built before marrying Claire, rides horses and tries to raise chickens and various other critters. Her heart is soft and she has a tendency to baby the animals, letting the chickens roost in the garage where it is warmer for example! George and Shirley are avid fisherpeople and hunters and George is our local wine expert. We always have a great time when we get together with this group.

Our newest spring scene on May 11
One snowy dog. She burrows her nose in the snow, sniffing out all the critters that might have been there.

Happy Mother's Day--it is great to have my Mom with me this year.
