At Ridgecrest

Well, here are Gertie and I  at a campsite near where we were staying. DH saw the sign for "Mama Gertie's" and had to find it.  We all laughed! I was able to do some crocheting. I actually made 16 squares on this little trip. I have about that many again and then can begin sewing them all together. As you can see, Gertie is a crafty dinosaur.

Everyone had such a great time. The boys and dd slept. I think we have still been trying to get over this flu thing. There have actually been a relapse or two. DH caught up on his reading and Bible study and a little bit of rest. We were able to eat most of our meals there in the little apartment. The kids never seem to get tired of peanut butter. We also spent a lot of time playing games: Scrabble, rummy, Uno, and my favorite (apparently Gertie's, too), Chinese Checkers.

We had a great time, but it is so good to be home. Now to get ready for school to begin again.


  1. Welcome back. I'm glad you and yours had a time of rest.

  2. Thanks. Now to hit the ground running . . . Having trouble getting the troups up and going for Church. Hope you're having a great weekend.
