OK—I didn’t post every day last week, but I did have a really good week. Lots of good memories. I went to Green Bay alone for the day. I stopped at a Quilt shop in Crivitz Wisconsin and treated myself to this charm pack from Kansas Trouble quilters. Great colors. I must have tried on 20 dresses and found two for keepers. Can’t wear them to work, but there is always Sunday church services. In the winter, you dress for warmth and the weather, but dresses are nice for the summer. I had lunch and came home.
Here was my weekend project – My new old bike. I found the bicycle at a city wide garage sale with a sign that said ‘free’. I should have photographed the before photo. A spray can of primer and one of flat ivory paint I have y new treasure. It had no basket, so I hit a bicycle grave yard and found it for three bucks. It’s still a work in progress – I hope to add more baskets and next year I’ll fill the basket with moss and soil for the flowers. But it’s a great first year start. Don is even sold on it. He disassembled the bicycle for easier painting. I transplanted black-eyed- Susan’s to grow in front of the wheels.
Sunday morning Ransom treed this fellow up a tree four feet from the Covered Porch around back. He was a small guy---Don figured about 150 pounds. It was amazing. I’ve seen them in the road, I’ve seen the droppings in the woods, but in 20 years—this is the first bear I’ve ever seen “Up Close and Personal”. He climbed over 25 feet to rest in that tree. Ransom had him treed. To protect him, we dragged in inside – But it was amazing and frightening at the same time to see the animal in the wild…. A memory.
I’m back at work this week – grateful for my job. It’s different; my friend Lora has a new job. I’m one of two girls in the house now.
