I'm really pleased with the "tide pool" towels.
Meanwhile, the "tide pool" towels are ready to hem.
Amy drove out on Friday, the 4th of July holiday, to spend some time with us. We used to do a lot together. When Ian and I were both working downtown, we had lunch together fairly regularly, but we go to town as infrequently as possible since retirement six years ago. Ian made his special burritos for lunch, and she gave us this lino-print as a going-away present. She has a number of really cool ones and is still developing her style she said, but this is still my favorite - the naughty cat.
We had an added treat that day. The phone rang shortly after Amy arrived. Our friends John and Celia were in Susanville, on their way home from a trip to Oregon. They had picked up this magazine for us in Bend and wanted to stop to say goodbye since they were going to drive right by here. They stayed for a couple of hours and we all had a rollicking good visit, sitting on the front porch, accompanied by the fountain and bird songs. What a nice day.
