While neither of us is enjoying the much cooler temps and having to stay inside, we are thankful for the one inch of rain this area of Montana received last night and today. During the night I would wake up and hear water pouring over our “must be stopped up” gutter—it was loud! Today I cleaned that gutter in the rain so as not to have a repeat tonight! And speaking of noisy—sometime in the night I woke and stretched my leg—next thing I know I am up out of bed dancing around with the worst cramp in my calf—moaning and groaning. My sympathetic husband didn’t even stir!!! That calf is still sore today!
I’ve finished the small quilt I’ve been working on and it’s ready for the quilting frame once the backing comes out of the dryer. I have another customer quilt to do—a t-shirt quilt—I’ve never done one of these.
Michael painted again yesterday and today turning out another nice one. He also spent some time researching Cadillac keys or key fobs. My car came with only one key and one fob—at times it would be nice to have another set but geez they want a lot of money for one of those coded keys!! So he was looking on eBay and Amazon for replacements.
And, we are in the market for a new mattress—we want to try a memory foam—any ideas out there??
On the subject of buttermilk—Brenda reminded me about using milk and vinegar to make buttermilk—I’ve done that before but sometimes we don’t even have milk as neither of us drinks milk. Michael uses almond milk on his cereal.
Have you all seen the news story out of Yellowstone National Park—two men from another country saw a buffalo calf, thought it was cold and put it in their SUV taking it to a park ranger. They were fined and today the news states the buffalo calf was euthanized as the herd had moved on without him and the calf was approaching people and cars. What’s the answer—bus people into Yellowstone as they do in Denali??? Today the news shows four young men walking out onto a the Grand Prismatic Spring—they are dang lucky they didn’t fall through ending up with burns!!
I read this book a long time ago—it’s a great/sad at times read about all the strange things people actually do in Yellowstone National Park. (can you readers see the Amazon tile with the book name??)
And Brooks Michael at one month old--
