Really? It's been that long since I post?

Oh I've been having fun and some not so fun times lately.  

So do you want me to tell you the good stuff first or the bad stuff?
The bad stuff?  Yeah, cause that's a bit more gossipy.

Well, I was eating lunch at Carl's Jr. , there was a big "BANG" noise, then someone came running in shouting "Who own a black car?"

Uhh...That would be me. 
 I ran (as in, I dropped my lunch and RAN outside.) Someone had just "hit and run" on my car.

No one was able to get the license - I'm telling you that gal sped away FAST !

So some good news - we could use a little of that right?
Mark and I took a motorcycle ride

We rode

 Up the canyon 
I love the way the canyon looks with those huge boulders.

And these sheer rock wall.

There's a beautiful river that runs the length of the canyon. 

On the way back to town we saw hundreds of oil pumps. 
They are all over this part of the county.  I love them. 

After the ride we sat down for lunch, I turned around and here's what I saw.
Mark bringing me a beer.  What a guy!

And this picture is for Sunny.  One day in the comments she told me to go jump in my pool. She meant it in a good way - really she did.
That's me making that splash.

Do you see all those boulders around my pool?  They came from the canyon we were riding in.
My grandmother and I used to go climbing in the canyon.  She would quote scriptures as we went, such as "The skies declare the glory of God and the earth showeth his handiwork."  Psalms 19:1
So having these boulders in my back yard brings me a lot of happiness. 

Well, enough for today.
Happy stitching or perhaps splashing!

Happy 4th to YOU!

I want to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July.
I hope you will be able to see great fireworks where you are at.
It is suppose to be 108 degrees - so we'll see quite a bit of the pool first.

We recently got out our Parcheesi game. 
We have the older version of the game, but I really like the new version better.

It's so much more colorful and it's more fun to move an elephant or camel than a plain marker.

Here's to Freedom
