Two more days

 My visit is coming to a close so I'm getting myself mentally prepared for the drive home. I'm leaving Monday and I'm trying to decide if I want to take the usual route through Oregon, Idaho, Utah and then into Arizona. Or try a different route through Oregon, Idaho, Nevada and then into Arizona.
I've never been to Nevada so it would be nice to see new territory. On the other hand I like my usual route because I know exactly where I need to get gas and the good economic hotels.

I figure I have until I hit Twin Falls, Idaho before I have to make the final decision.
In the meantime I went to the craft warehouse again and got another pile of seed bead tubes for ten cents each. I now have 30 tubes.

We took our walk today and the "bee tree" is now in bloom. I did a video of the boys that I'll post another time.

Here's the boys on a little bridge.
Alex is already up to my chin.

So today I'm charging the MP3, e-reader and other stuff.

More travels to come.


  1. Whatever you decide it'll be an interesting trip, have fun!

    1. You never know what's around the corner.

  2. It's great to see pics of the places I've only heard about! LOVE the bee tree! And I can't wait to find out what you're going to do with all those seed beads! They are gorgeous! I'm biting my tongue to keep from asking you to get me $3 worth and I'll pay you when you get home...no I'm not going to do that. No I'm not. I'm not. unn unh. And it's OK because you've already been there twice and I know you're not going back a third time, right? XOXO

    1. Hmmmmmmmmmmm I'll have to see what I can do. As for what I'm going to do with them . . . if I get them will you teach me what to do with them?

  3. ten cents each? Wow! SAfe trip home Rita!
