A Hot Day In Billings

Summer has officially arrived!  It was 102 degrees in Billings today, LoraLee and I picked the hottest day of the year to travel to the big city!  Today was LoraLee’s day to get beautified—a cover up the gray and haircut, it looked great when one of the girls in the salon where I go finished this afternoon.  We started the morning out stopping at Cinnabar Creek for coffee’s then Famous Dave’s for lunch.

While LoraLee was getting all pretty I took off to do some shopping.  Returned a dress I ordered from Coldwater Creek that didn’t fit and found something to wear to Katie’s wedding.  Then it was on to Costco where I swear the whole state of Montana was shopping today.  Getting all that stuff I bought for the wedding food loaded into the truck by myself in that heat was a chore! 

After retrieving LoraLee we made a quick stop by Wal Mart then on home. 

Michael and his Dad went to Helena today to purchase an old player piano.  Nat used to restore player pianos and wants to try his hand again—I am excited, I love player pianos!  They got back to Big Timber about the same time we did.

Mom and Chuck came over from Yellowstone Park today and came up to the house to babysit the Emmi dog.

We all just enjoyed a dinner of steak, potatoes, salad and cantaloupe.  Now it is time to put the feet up!

I took Shirley her quilt when I got home—she loved it!

  1. Maybe everyone in Montana was in your Costco, but be glad that everyone in Western Canada was in ours today. Whoever thought up the idea for those stores must be a genius.

  2. Love your quilting on that quilt! Very nice work!

  3. Sounds like a very busy day, but 102F is just a little too hot!!

  4. That quilt is very striking and rich! Lovely job on it.. even the backside is very pretty!
