Old Marcus and Design Boards

I was blessed to have my son, and his family, visit for their spring break.  I had to work, but we managed some time together.

One of the things that we did, was to take a little walk around Old Marcus

Every year, Lake Roosevelt is drawn down, and reveals the old site.  One can see the crumbling town foundations that are normally under water.

My granddaughter has a little sewing project going when she visits.

Alyssa's Kitty Cushion

The kitty will become a cushion, but it is slow progress since we don’t live close to each other.

The family has gone back home, and I have spent the morning making small design boards.  This small project has been on my to-do list for a long time.

Mini Design Boards

I used pieces of scrap foam core and batting to make mine.

They range from 9″ to 15″ square.

Mini Design Boards

I used the tutorial from Bee in my Bonnet.  These are useful little boards!

A Canoe Afternoon on the Columbia

The 4th of July dawned beautifully…plenty of sunshine, blue sky and calm Columbia water.  This was a day to drop everything, pack a lunch and do some paddling.  We’ve had a whole lot of rain and thunder, day after day, so this day was extra special.

We launched from Marcus Campground.  Marcus, Washington, is an old town with a rich history.  If Hubby and I didn’t live just up the road, we would definitely camp at this scenic and peaceful campground.

We parked at the swallows condo for lunch.

The picture below doesn’t do justice to the swallows who did their best to let us know that we were uninvited guests. 

Hubby had a much needed pleasant outing!

At home, outside the dining room window, the Cedar Waxwings enjoyed a picnic on dogwood berries.  Hubby needs to keep those windows clean on the outside just for such photographic occasions as this!  But today, was Hubby’s day of rest. 

And we were blessed.
