You may recall that my quilting partner, ShaRee, and I spent 2014 making barn blocks into quilt tops. We have embarked on some new adventures that I will write about later. We meet every other week to sew so we decided we could invite a friend to join us and do a project with all …

Wherein we meet Karl Malone

In general car shopping is not our favorite thing.   Root canals aren’t far behind.   Sue and I set out and our car shopping day didn’t start out so well.  Our travels took us to Karl Malone Toyota where we were helped by a nice salesman who was obviously uninformed.  Everything he told us …

San Diego Mormon Battalion Historic Site

After getting completely soaked at the closing of Sea World, we headed over to the San Diego Mormon Battalion Historic Site.  We looked a little worse for the wear, but the sister missionary from Idaho Falls who gave us the tour was very understanding.  Scott and I had never been there and a couple of …
