A Feast and Hanging Out

Mom and I have just been hanging out—she is making progress day by day—she now can leverage herself out of a chair—a big step!!  I go downstairs and quilt keeping one ear tuned to upstairs—I started and finished a hugs flannel quilt for my friend Shirley yesterday and today. 

Chuck flew home to Arkansas Wednesday morning and arrived back here in Montana this evening—and he wasn’t flying, he was driving back! SmileWe were glad to see him as he was bringing us a feast:

IMG_1847My sweet sister Ann sent fresh garden tomatoes and Arkansas peaches plus okra from their garden.  The cowboy isn’t too thrilled about the okra to say the least but the us southern folk are looking forward to a meal of fried okra!

I just finished an amazing book, The Orphan Train by Christina Kline.  Amazon has a new program—purchase the Kindle version of a book and get the audio version for a greatly reduced price.  You can toggle back and forth between the print and audio versions using the Kindle app on the iPad.  I listened to a great deal of the book on my midnight run to Idaho Falls the other night and finished it a couple nights ago.  Children picked up off the streets of New York city and transported on trains to total uncertainty—some were lucky, being adopted and loved.  Others were beaten, starved and mistreated.  A very good book!

Montana has no forest fires as of yet but we are getting smoke from all around us—Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Canada.  The smoke was so thick this morning it made our eyes burn!



  1. No butterbeans to go with those tomatoes and fried okra? Sad. Glad to read your mom is doing better.

  2. Yuck, I am not a fan of smoke! Hope the fires stay away. Glad your mom is healing well - we take for granted the ease of simple things until we get banged up! Now I have to get dressed and go to the farmers' market for tomatoes! They just sound/look so yummy :-). I can only do okra if prepared by someone with some southern blood - so will have to wait for that "treat". Have a wonderful Sunday (stay out of that smoke).

  3. Glad your mom is doing better:) Eating and hanging-two of my favorite things!

  4. I read that book!! It was very good, and sad.... at least the 'lucky' ones did not have to spend their childhood in an orphanage...
