She invited us to meet her at Chuck-a-Rama, which was a great excuse to go to our favorite buffet!
Annette and Kent tried not to tell us how much they enjoyed Israel and Jordan, the trip we had to cancel because of my illness.
It is truly one of the blessings of living in Utah, being able to spend time with family!

It was fun seeing it with Ellis and Marti who spent a year and a half in Cameroon as missionaries. They are very different countries, but both in Africa.
After watching the films I understand better why Mma Ramotswe (of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective books) had such a high respect for Seretse Khama!

This means taking off the wallpaper sooner than I had planned. We used a steamer and I took off every square inch of that wallpaper! It was a terrible job!
It was also invigorating to clean under the washer and dryer! It feels good to be dust bunny free!
Now just the oven, electrical, pendant lights, chandelier, molding, and finishing the floor,,, Not to mention the return of the cabinet maker as soon as some of the panels come in!

The good news is, I can play the banjo again, although it is still hard to do pull-offs or big chords.
Ed went to therapy with me today and Ed and I sang "I've Endured" for the office! We felt like it was a fitting song after all we've been through in the past 6 months!
Here's a video of our singing!

There is a derelict milking shed on the property.
We've started working on developing a website for the Alpine Nature Center, as there would probably not be a physical presence in town for a long time. We're temporarily hosting it at https://naturecenterblog.wordpress.com/. Maybe you'd like to visit it and give us suggestions for what you think should be on the site!

Mabel really loved watching the ducks!
Ed really loved showing Mabel the ducks!
Unfortunately, going down the slide wasn't always as smooth as it might have been!
