Sunshine Saturday

Hello everyone! I'm sorry I've been away so long. I'm still trying to decipher the picture mystery on Blogger. I think in order to post pictures, I'm going to either have to delete some old ones or pay. I think I'll begin with deleting a few and see what happens. But that will be next week when I have more time.

I've been busy traveling the past week. We went to our son's in Montana for Easter weekend. Three egg hunts with the grandbabies on Sunday and a WONDERFUL resurrection Sunday service. It was a grand fun-filled time. Hubby took Monday off work so we were able to stay an extra day. We drove home Monday and then Tuesday morning I travelled alone to Portland, OR to see our daughter. She is expecting her first baby and asked me to go the the doctors visit with her so I could hear the heartbeat. Oh that little one was kicking up a storm in there. I just can't wait to meet this little person sometime in September! I drove back home yesterday and finally relaxed a bit today. Almost 1800 miles driven in 7 days! My car definitely needs an oil change.

While in Portland I took a side trip on Thursday to Multnomah Falls to see a blog friend Teresa. She is also in the Lucy group on Ravelry. It was so good to meet her in person. She volunteers at Multnomah Falls and is a wonderful person. I'll have to figure out how to add links to others blogs on here. I know you would all love it. She posts beautiful pictures of the Columbia Gorge and her farm. And she is a much more regular poster than I am!

My new ipad just decided to quit working while in Montana so hubby and I took it to the geeks at Best Buy this morning. They did what they called a hard reset and it was just like new. Literally. All my information was gone and I had to start all over. Very frustrating. They said sometimes the software has a "little hiccup" and this happens. So I've been trying to reinstall all of my apps etc. this afternoon.

Hubby and I decided to put our little pop up camper on Craigslist today. We have one man interested and he's driving over from Walla Walla tomorrow to look at it. Yes, there is really a town called Walla Walla, Washington! Sounds funny doesn't it?

I'm hoping to be better about blogging, but with so much illness this year, I just haven't had the energy. Hopefully with spring arriving, it will be easier!

Have a wonderfully fabulous weekend.

Blessings,

Betsy

  1. Betsy, I'm so glad Teresa introduced me to you in her blog.
    When Teresa and I had lunch together yesterday she mentioned how pleased she was that you two got to meet face to face. She also mentioned a beautiful baby blanket pattern that you both have made. I saw it on both of your blogs and am so impressed with the wonderful workmanship of both of you! I wonder if I could ever make such a complicated pattern, but it is so lovely I hope to try to make it someday. I have yet to make even one granny square! Oh, my! <3

  3. Hi Gracie- thank you for the nice comment. I'm sure with a little patience you could produce beautiful crochet. Maybe we can have a mini class with Teresa next time I'm down that way!

    Teresa- it was SO good to meet you. I'm glad you like the hot pads. I know from the blog that your husband likes to cook, maybe he'll get some good use. I'll let you know the next time I visit Mandy so we can get together.

    Blessings,

    Betsy

  4. For photos, have you thought about getting a Flickr account and posting links in your blog?
