Sorry I have not been around much lately. The fact is, I’m out in the wild. The very weak network I’m connecting to at the moment is, in fact, called ‘The Wild.’ I am at Silver Falls State Park at a sewing retreat. I got here on Monday and am not going home until Sunday. My kids and house all have their appropriate sitters. My dog is out at his cousin Kalli’s house, and my niece is house and cat sitting for me. Nothing to do here but eat, sleep, sew. Well, there’s also painting an art quilt (that’s not going well), and walking/hiking. Today or tomorrow we will walk the Trail of Ten Falls. It’s really spectacular. I may not get to upload any photos till I get home because of the slow internet, but trust me, this is one of the most beautiful places you will ever see. The link above will take you to the park website and you can see some photos of the lodges and the falls. It’s spectacular, and the weather has been exceptional. Clear, sunny (and moony at night!), and warm. Also, I’m here with 24 other wonderful women and we have some wonderful men cooking fabulous food for us. So, while it’s the WILD, we’re not really roughing it.
