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 Quilting 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.
