Aargh, way too long .

My friends have pointed showed that I have been remiss in blogging at all. The focus has not been on writing, in fact I haven't even had the urge to write as I usually do. Is THIS what is fashionable called writer's block?

We have done a lot of traveling during the last few months, in the US, Canada, and Uruguay, S America. This has included the western US and Canada, but in Canada we can only lay claim to parts of Alberta and Southern BC. We spent some time parked in Spokane in the parking lot of a repair shop with troubles with our slides. From there we car tripped around the state and into southern Alberta all the way to Edmonton and then down into south eastern BC. In Alberta we attended our niece's wedding in Calgary and had the best time. Throughout this time I avidly collected Row by Row patterns as we collected miles, and as in miles, I collected way too many.

A notable activity done during this time was a bike ride along a rails to trails outside of C'oeur d'Alene, ID called the Route of the Hiawatha Trail. The scenery was fantastically beautiful and the ride an easy one. We came back with our backs covered in mud from the wet and damp tunnels but with a feeling of euphoria from having such a wonderful day.

Then we went international again  ... Uruguay, South America. See you again sometime - I hope that this writer's block takes a hike and follows Miss [quilting] Mojo on vacation ......
