Happy Happy Day

Friday was our Anniversary.  It was also a day full of test and Dr. visit's.   Over the years of anniversary's I have put in a lot of thought as to where we would go for dinner.  Sometime it was very elaborate places and sometime is it was celebrated by spending the whole week-end someplace.
This year it was celebrated on the Columbia river, on a little boat I call "Wild thing".
We had pizza!   Pretty fancy huh?  
 The river was as smooth as glass.  I hope that means smooth sailing for a long time to come.
I had a great report from the Dr.  there is no cancer!!  I will have to do some follow up visits for awhile.  I can never remember a time when a Dr. gave me a hug. I think I hugged back just as hard, and said Thank you a million times.
I am so blessed, to be able to live here in paradise.  From our mighty river to our mighty mountains, I am blessed.

They moved!

I am not a quilter at least not yet.  It is something I have dabbled in hoping to learn the in's and out's of putting together those wonderful quilts I see.   I am also in love with quilted table-runners,  oh my some just take my breath away with their beauty.  

Well our quilt shop just moved!!  they had a large shop but it wasn't located in the down town area and now they are.

                                    I love the display windows.

            The interior is bright and
  full of inspiration.

         We have a meeting spot for our
         Apple Valley smockers.  Surrounded by beautiful quilts.  So much inspiration!!

I am always amazed at the power of these storms.   There is a certain beauty and at the same time a certain danger.
At this time the fire is 70% contained thanks to the firefighters.
