A Very Quiet Day Around Here

Quiet and sad—no running, laughing, chasing Emmi, playing little girls, no conversations with my sweet niece, no teasing Eric and no getting a hard time back from Eric.  But, school starts in Arkansas in about a week so they had to go home.  We so enjoyed their visit.

Michael went over on the West Boulder to try and measure/design a 4-wheeler trail up the side of a mountain for a customer.  The process went well with him finding a slightly better route than before.

I ran down to Joe and Tammy’s house which they were so gracious to loan us for Niki and Eric’s stay.  Niki had gotten a good start on the sheet laundry brigade and I finished up.  It is so nice to have the use of that house for when we have guests.

Naps were in order after a lunch of leftovers, neither of us slept well last night, I was sitting on the couch at 1am reading my Kindle just because I couldn’t sleep. 

I did manage late this afternoon to get a customer quilt loaded onto the frame.

If you read Rollie and Gina’s blog you know they recently celebrated the birth of their first grandchild, Abigail Faith.  I made a quilt for the baby using the pattern my Grandmother used for making baby quilts.  It is adorable!


It was with sadness that we heard of the death of one of our RVing/blogging friends, Doug Dubrouillet.  We met Doug and JoAnn along with Jim and Ellie several years ago while staying at Doc Justin’s RV Park in Tucson, AZ.  Doug and JoAnn also joined us in the desert for a short time this past winter.  Doug’s health had been declining making it difficult for him to handle the RV and truck causing them to return to their park model in Florida.  Rest in peace Doug and may the wonderful memories the two of you made comfort you JoAnn. 



  1. I hate it when company leaves,,,So quiet it makes me sad....
    The quilt for Abigail is beautiful!

  2. You have a really cool life going. I am sorry about your friend Doug.

  3. Thank you so much Janna. The quilt is beautiful!! Abigail is going to love it. I cannot wait until she is old enough so Gina and I can tell her the story of our friendship.

    It's looking beautiful up on the Boulder. Enjoy your summer!!

    Tell Mike to be careful up on that hill side. Hopefully the new path will be easier than what we hiked.

    Love and Hugs,
    Rollie & Gina
