|My youngest daughter brought home bouquets of Dahlias from her favorite roadside stand for us to enjoy.|
|Recently, I met friends from NY at Multnomah Lodge for lunch and on the way home stopped to get a photo of Vista House from the East.|
|Isn't the glass pretty?|
|Looking East at the Columbia River|
|We used to have wild sweet peas in our home in NY, so finding them growing here in Oregon helps me feel right at home here in Oregon as well.|
|After leaving Vista House, I stopped at the nearby Lavender farm to pick up a fragrant bouquet of Lavender, which I am enjoying on my tea tray while I continue to work on crocheting my Ruby Shawl.|
Since I last posted I have been plotting and planning flying to Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Prince Edward Island. It has been so much fun to line up visits with friends and family as well as contemplate a little sight seeing.
After my last road trip, my Dodge mini-van started making some rough sounds that resulted in having the alternator and serpentine belt replaced. I was sooooo glad neither part broke while I was driving!
But my trip planning was interrupted when a week ago after swimming with Teresa, I planted the left side of my face into a flower bed I was enjoying viewing on my way back to the car! Broken glasses, a chipped front tooth, and a few cuts and bruises, sidelined me for a bit. However, my dentist mended my tooth and I am healing miraculously fast. I am so grateful I did not do more damage to myself or the flowers! My new glasses should arrive this week...Teresa told me to buy some glamorous ones :-)
Well I'd best not dilly-dally if I want to finish the shawl to take with me in ten days!!!
Have you been doing any dallying lately?
