My Week at the Rancho

Good morning and Happy Fourth of July to my American peeps.

It has been very, very quiet at the rancho this past week.  Moto does his best to be the perfect cat, but I'm afraid that my heart still belongs to George.  I know it will get better...but right now there is still something missing.

I've got pictures of my latest stitching.  I've been good and stitched a bit every day.  I know that I need to get all the stitching done before class in September so I am staying very focused.

This will be a pincushion when it is all done.


 Next up was the scissor fob.  Not a great picture, but front and back.


And here is the waxer bag.


I took lots and lots and lots of pictures of my vacation, but I will try to keep from overloading the internet.  SMILE

Of course I stopped at quite a few rest stops...you know how important those are to me.  It seems that states have finally figured out that rest stops can be more than a toilet.  Many I visited now include state information and walking trails.

Colorado rest stop.  Love this trail that goes down to the river.


Wyoming had amazing views that seemed to go forever.


Took a walking trail to the top of a hill in Wyoming and found these native flowers.  There was a bench, so sat down for a few minutes to enjoy the view.


Utah has become one of my favorite states.  The views go forever.





I've got lots of pictures and stories of my visit.  I will share more in my next post.

I am off to do chores.  There is always laundry to do.  I'm not sure what our plans are today, but I definitely need to get some outside work done before the heat hits this afternoon.  

Wishing each of you an amazing day.  Be kind to one another.

  1. Happy 4th to you 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    The loss of a fur baby is so hard. Loocie has been gone over a year and this morning I shed a few tears. Sending furry hugs.
    I fell n love with Utah when we were there last year! We are heading to LA on Thursday (not one of my favorite places...lol) to see my son and then heading to Napa to visit DSO's son.
    Hugs 😊

    1. LOL No, LA is not my favorite either...LOL There are some amazing places, but with the heat and the smog...nope. Be safe on your trip. Napa is nice, but I like Petaluma better. And the coast? Amazing!!

  2. Happy Glorious 4 th to you Angela. I imagine the states like each of the provinces...each has its special sights and qualities to enjoy. I know the states I've seen are unique and varied. All with its own beauty. Never tire of your photos, btw. Stitching coming along too and I still love that pink.

    1. What? You like the pink? What a surprise!! LOL Utah is the most wonderful place...every turn is a new mountain and a new color. I enjoyed Wyoming, though not a lot to see in the way in colors, there was lots of antelopes. LOL
