Counted cross-stitch projects
From our home in southern California, we drove to Portland, Oregon by way of the June TNNA convention in Columbus, Ohio. These are photos taken mostly by Dave. In normal circumstances he shoots more photos than I do. When you add into that the fact that while we're on the road I'm the one behind the wheel, and he's free to snap away while we're moving, we end up with a whole lot more of his photos than mine.
We had a vulture visit the other day. He saw that a rabbit had recently died on our hill, and thought to make a meal of it. Nope. The vulture didn't kill the bunny. Vultures only eat carrion. Updated to add some of the photos that Dave took the same day. His camera zooms in better, and so he got better close-ups. He even got a great one of the vulture looking right at him.
I can't begin to tell you how many years we've wanted to get rid of the ugly and non-functional intercom in the kitchen. What stopped us? The hole that would need to be tiled over, and the fact that one of the very few things Dave doesn't know how to do around the house is tile work. It took us a while, but we finally had a brainstorm: have Mikki do it! Dave removed the intercom (the thing was so ugly that the empty hole was an improvement!), cleaned up the hole a bit, then Mikki came over last week to do the tile work. It looks awesome. Don't know why we didn't do this years ago.
The old water bed finally died. On the one hand, timing could have been better. On the other hand, timing was perfect: Mom wanted to get rid of her king, and get a more manageable queen, so offered her California king to us. All we had to do was make a 800 mile round trip to get it. Easy as pie.
