Sewing Machines and Plants

It was time to pick up my sewing machine at the repair shop in Billings and Jeane’s Pfaff machine had a glitch while at the quilt retreat this weekend.  So we sent the husbands off to an auction in Park City and Jeane and I headed to Billings.  We dropped off the sewing machine, picked up mine, went to JoAnn’s and purchased Jeane a back up small Singer.  Then it was downtown for lunch at a wine bar.  We both ordered crabcake burgers and it was the best crabcake I have ever eaten—delicious!

Next stop was Costco for a few groceries—noticed when we walked in that Costco had a lot of plants displayed.  There were some beautiful, healthy small blue spruce trees for $13!!!!  The trees are probably about 3 feet tall and we managed to stuff 6 of them into the back of my Explorer.New trees

On to the nursery for flowers, plants and herbs.  The first stop at Village Gardens put both of us into a bad mood—rotten customer service, dingy help.  We purchased stuff there then stopped in Laurel to see what that nursery had—after stopping we were wishing we had purchased there instead of the one with the rotten customer service!

OK, we can’t get another thing in that Explorer and headed for Big Timber.  Mike and Steve had an enjoyable day—didn’t purchase anything at the auction but had a good time. 

Emmi spent the day with Nat and was one happy puppy when Mom and Dad got home!  I took her for a short walk—our weather was beautiful today—tonight and tomorrow a cold front is due to arrive bringing rain/snow for the next few days, UGH!

  1. Looks like you have settled in to being home in your beautiful mountains. Emmi is growing so much. She will be a young lady by the time we see her again. LOL

    I know you must have had a great time at your quilting retreat. So much fun and talent!

    Hugs to you all!
