Hole In One-Yippee!

The kids were all in town this weekend.

We decided to play golf at the Pub Course at McMenamins Edgefield. Notable things about this course are:
  • it has 20 holes (perhaps two are for warm up) 
  • the average hole length is about 70 yards
  • you only carry a wedge and putter around
  • the cart lady serves ups 22 oz bottles of beer
That said, I got a hole in one with all my family watching. It was worth the price of admission.

Here I am at the victory flag with ball, beer and club in hand. Is Rick photo bombing this shot?

First Harvest

Gardening in Oregon can be frustrating. Generally, the sunny season is too short; there is too much rain in the spring; and slugs and snails prevail. Most of that was for naught this year. I am picking cherry tomatoes every day now. I am loving this.

99 is Hot

I've worked hard at my golf game but it doesn't come easily or quickly. Granted the course is not aneasy-peasy one either. But today I broke 100, just by the hair on my chinny, chin, chin. I shot 99.

I texted Rick. "99 today"

He texted back...I thought it wasn't going to get hot until tomorrow.

What, what!

The Fourth

Spent at a party out in the gorge, the day was as it should be. With friends, eating, dancing, watching the river.  But first, airing my flag quilt.

Next up were jello shots. How cute!

And last, a gorgeous sunset!

Before heading home just in time to see the fireworks display at Oak Hills.

Golfing with Deer Friends

Rick, Drew and I played golf last Thursday evening. The 11th hole is a par 5. From far back, we could just see deer ears sticking out of the sand trap. Rick and I both hit our balls near this trap. You can see mine circled in red. As we approached, our dear friend did not budge. It was a rather warm and humid evening and she was all about staying cool.  It's kind of nice to be able to get so close to these animals. They have been hanging around on the golf course for a long time and are not too afraid of the humans. It was a perfect day for all!

Airing the Quilts

I have a lot of quilts and fiber art. I've given many away but some remain with me. Inspired by the Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show, I have decided to air a different quilt on good weather Saturdays this summer. I have the perfect spot on the back deck. Since our house is on the corner, everyone walking past on the sidewalk can pause and look. Last week it was "Midnight in the Garden". I love the movement in the lines of this quilt and the large florals. Stay tuned.
