Yesterday (Monday) we met for lunch with my local (that’s local, not loco, although she’s really both!) friend Bev. Bev and I say that we “met in Australia”, because we actually met through Sharon Boggon’s Pin Tangle blog! After lunch, we headed over the Humanitarian Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon church, which is based in Utah). Bev volunteered there for 10 years, and I did periodically through one summer.
Last year I took Diane and Ingrid there (see post here) and we hunted through huge bins for fabric. That was exactly the mission that we were on today! Fabric for the CQI Stash Dash and/or the Texas fire victims.

This morning, Tuesday, my granddaughter London arrived for her weekly visit with Grammy and Grandpa (“Dammy and Papa”). And she had the extra fun of having Auntie Diane here too (and she says that clear as a bell!)

|She even held still for a half second so I snapped this picture|
We all went on a wagon ride around the farm, visited all the animals (but missed the new Belgian Draft Horses that arrived last week. Their fence was being mended and they were in a far pasture). London loved the cows and all the ducks (every bird was a duck, whether it was a chicken, duck or goose).

|Not a great picture, but at least I remembered to use the camera a couple times!|
This is my final post until I get back from the Retreat, and I will probably (hopefully) have lots of pictures and stories to tell.
Until next time,
