I used to love posting on this blog, and then facebook came along. I am tiring of that place with all it's game nonsense. So even though no one is looking at the blogs anymore, here is our newest family addition. Beautiful Laurel Rose Obert, with her big sister Madeleine! I miss them both.

Golf with other Torreon escapees. The course was beautiful, Deere Run near the Quad Cities. After 9 holes, I was done. Hot and humid does me in. But dinner and the company was well worth the trip. We are not all John Deere people, half of us are Caterpiller people.

Here is another of my Arizona winter projects. I made a new quilt for each of the grandkids. As Luci is demonstrating in the first picture, the blocks are tents and the flaps open to reveal a scene inside. Circus scenes for Maddie, Lucia and Aaron, and camping bugs for Patrick. You have no idea how difficult it was to get these pictures with the kids,thank goodness for digital cameras. It seems that these quilts promote wiggling and giggling. And to get the pictures all on the same computer proved also to be a challenge.

While in East Glacier, we found this wand maker. I've always wanted my own magic wand. So she had me pick up each of the wands until I found the one that choose me. After I found it, she told me its story. The main feature of this wand is the crooked or wavey shaft. She says it symbolizes lightening. (which is probably why this wand choose me with the nick-name "Stormy") It is made of oak for energy, inspiration, & courage.
It has a tip of brass for healing, protection; used to send negativity back to its sender, also used to attract money. It has one spiral in the hilt. One spiral is personal or individual. It promotes invention, independence, leadership and extraordinary will. It was made when the moon's phase was new in Libra. But I cant for the life of me remember what that means, except that it has something to to with new beginings. Anyway is was quite fun and once again it reinforces my personal belief that there is magic and magical people among us.
PS I loved her t-shirt, it says "Don't make me get my wand out!" She was the best side show in town.
