What? No Internet??

Our trip to Idaho was wonderful. We went boating and swam in Lake Pend Oreille and spent most of a day at Silverwood Theme and Water Park, and had a great time with my cousin and her family.

We had brought the lap top expecting that we would be able to hook up to the internet somehow. Our expectations didn't quite match with what was probable. We could get dial up for $10 a week, but our lap top doesn't have a phone jack! What?!? So, no internet. I did manage to sneak on at my cousin's house where they too can only get dial up, wow, that is one slow connection! I have forgotten all about my dial up days. I didn't have the patience or the time to wait for pages to upload. So, a week with out the internet...what did we do?

Read books, talked(!) to one another, I got some knitting in, swam, went for a drive, hung out!

I have market pictures to show you from the last two Saturdays. The bread posts are almost ready, I'm making one batch today! And I'm excited to show you my new pin cushion.

Looks like you had an awesome time! Can't wait to see the bread... all of the stores are getting out the fall decor, and that makes me want to nest around and bake yummy things ☺

Sounds like a perfect birthday get away! I can't believe the picture of Violet and you on the tube. She must not be afraid of anything?!

So glad you had a great time... sounds like my kind of vacation. I love lake swimming! Guess what, your top pick is of one of my worst noxious weeds.... spotted knapweed. Pretty but oh so bad! Sorry it has made its way down to the lake, so sad.
