Bill and I at St. Thomas
We just had to go to the new See's Candy store at The Mall of America!
I arrived home just in time for our Scottie Dog Quilts Retreat at a new venue...The Humboldt Aquatics Center. What a lovely view.....from the awesome Victorian Carson Mansion to Humboldt Bay. Walls of glass made it hard to concentrate on quilting.
Here's a quilt I finally got bound at the retreat. Love that view!
Here's brother Denny and I posing in front of the new baseball stadium....Notice the sign on the building..."McNally Family Suites." I tell you, baseball and football are so much fun from the fancy sky boxes!
One day we filled my Tahoe with empty cardboard bolt centers!
At the beginning of the last day! Many of the fixtures are already gone.
These near empty shelves look so forlorn!
I must say, it has been hard at times during our liquidation sale. Saying goodbye after 14 wonderful years to all the friends we've made is hard. Saying goodbye to the beautiful Northern California Redwood Forest and the rugged Pacific Coast is hard. But awaiting for us is family....The entire Scott Clan will be able to live close to one another, hanging out together, picnicking, helping one another. Think Sunday dinners at Gramy's house, sleep-over's for Sydney at the Cousin's house, hunting for the men, sewing together for the ladies, tea parties and more....my heart is full. We will miss our CA friends, but we fully expect our guest room to be occupied often.
Liz and Steve and Sydney leave Sunday morning with their cat Rico in their truck and a trailer with all their household goods. Bill and I will leave the house in good hands (Thanks Larissa!) as we travel to MN to buy another rental to replace the one we just sold here. We'll all be together for a few weeks and then we'll be back in Eureka to get our house ready to sell. Then we'll be move too.
Wow! That is a lot in 6 months! A new chapter in the lives of BrendaLou and Mr. Scottie Dog.
