Another Good Day of Vacation

We slept in this morning or at least until 7am which is late for us—dawdled over our coffee and computers—just a perfect kind of morning. 

When Michael left for the dental office Emmi and I took a nice walk through one of the adjoining neighborhoods.  As in all parts of the country Coeur d Alene has not escaped the poor economy.  You will see really well kept homes and lawns then a home that looks abandoned or a home that may be a rental with lots of excess vehicles, brown grass and trash around, sad. 

While Michael was gone I gave the motorhome a good cleaning and did some ironing—yep, this southern girl still irons her clothes or at least some of them!  We had lunch when he got back then took off so I could visit one of the best quilt stores in the US—Bear Paw QuiltingIMG_2067 IMG_2068 A wonderful place, beautiful fabric, books and all sorts of anything quilting.  For some strange reason I just couldn’t find anything that jumped out at me so came away empty handed, Michael couldn’t believe it!

A stop at Wal Mart then back to retrieve the Emmi girl from the motorhome.  We had a lovely dinner last night with Mary and Gene with a repeat tonight.  Last night she fixed chicken enchiladas and tonight ribs.  Mary treated us to a slide show of her rafting trip down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon which she did this spring.  It is always such a pleasure to visit Mary and Gene—they have led such an interesting life!

It rained here today and the temps are really cool tonight—fall is in the air.


  1. I love ironing!!!..NOT..but I do it anyway..especially pillow cases..don't ask me why but I do!!!

  2. Anneke insists on caring an iron-just in case. I have not seen it for a long time:)

  3. Fall may be I. The air there. However, it's not down here in Hiuston. It was 102 degrees yesterday. Please send some Fall weather down this way. Enjoy your trip and safe travels.

    Love and Hugs,
    Rollie & Gina

  4. I'm not sure if Paulette's been to that Quilt shop or not. She'll definitely be adding it to her list though!
