The Biggest News Around This Place Is..........

Gracie and Dave are engaged! They are getting married on the 28th of November and we are thrilled. There isn't much to tell about it yet as nothing, except for the photographer, is figured out. More to come.

Other than that my brain is absolutely fried tonight from working on my math homework. Oh excuse me...did I say math? I mean my puzzle homework. I have to somehow make this fun because it's really not too fun at all yet. Thank goodness for Charlie's help or I would be sunk. Tonight I think we had both had it and it just became comical as he was trying not to give me the answers. He's a real tax master but that's what I need. Studying archeology is a real treat compared to my other homework.

I am enjoying the ride on Trax-even though it's so early in the morning twice a week. It's just thrilling to Chris to see me be the one that has to get up so early. After all for the last year I have been thoroughly enjoying myself staying up late and reading. I don't think I've read this many books in years! Love it.

Finishing up the last hearts and Do you like them?

Okay. School starts tomorrow. I can't believe I'm really going back this time and haven't been there since 1974. Yikes. Aging myself. Oh well-it says I'm a grandma in my profile and I'm very proud of that! Anyway, I had to finish up some projects that just are not going to wait until a more convenient time. Little by little they all got done. 3 of the hearts were so complicated and hard. But I think they turned out nifty. I don't want to say what 2 of them are for yet because I don't want to reveal my plan. 2 are for sale. I do have a painting that I've been working on for a long time. It's going to get done but not in time for the Murray City art show, I'm afraid. Well, there's always next year.

It's Worth it to nag your kids into taking piano

Well, it's so lovely to see Gracie enjoying the piano as much as she is. It really took with Charlie also. I hope Cliff and Kip will fall back into it some day but one never knows as a parent.

Well, we went on the hike and man oh man was it gorgeous!

This has to be one of my top favorite things to do in the summer. So, I will now share some current and gorgeous new photos of the famous Albion Basin in Alta, Utah.
