Airstream Planning

One possible plan for the '54 Cruiser.  Always fun and exciting to dream and plan. Doug drew this up last week while we were celebrating at Mama Maria's.  Love the crayons and paper table covering.

Sleeping In

I guess Cooper had too much fun with Doug this weekend and needed to catch up on her beauty rest. I found her in our bed sleeping after she had her breakfast.  Mondays would be better enjoyed if we all could do this :)

Cleaning Out

Feeling the spring-cleaning-bug I guess.
Before:  Messy kitchen drawer.
After:  Organized "feels good and looks good" kitchen drawer :)

Finally Found One

Seems like Doug has been looking forever, but he finally found a vehicle that we like.  Sunday afternoon we drove to Oakdale to take a look at this 2000 Suburban.  We were sold.
Must Haves:
Fits our budget;  check. 
Low miles (relative to the age of vehicle); check
Color that works for us; check
Luggage racks; check
No rust; check
Looks and drives great; check

Saturday Drive

Transmission went out in the Tahoe again, so we drove to the "cities" yesterday in search of a different vehicle.  Nothing yet.

Walking With Goats

I let the goats out to walk with Cooper and me this morning.  That was a big mistake.  Moose went right back in to their fenced area, but of course Mary had to be obstinate.  She kept "calling" and looking for Doug. She walked into the garage and over by his new shed.  I finally got her through the gate with a bag of chips and I put a leash on her.  There I "won" that one.  Well not really.  They are really funny goats. Who knew goats could have such distinct and different personalities.

Ben and a Blue Jay

This poor bird flew into the side of the garage, so he was a little stunned for awhile.

Door Curtain

Finally, after 10 years, I made a curtain for the door to the downstairs patio. I used material from Doug's Mom, Diamond Willow that Doug's Dad had carved and Deer Horn Buttons that Doug made for me.
