One of my happiest purchases

A yarn winder!  It makes me very happy when I wind a skein to prepare for a project. :)

I've seen gulls in Wisconsin and along the Pacific and Gulf, funny the ones on the Atlantic look the same. ;)

New traditions

I guess one of our new traditions is to have a picnic on a holiday, lol.  We grabbed a sandwich, some fruit and such and ran out nature.  We found an FTF geocache in Oregon, in the Owyhee Mountains, then we stopped by Snively Hot Springs for a warm polar plunge New Year dip. 

We were surprised that the water was so hot.  Someone reported it was 125.9 F when they were there, it felt hotter to us.  Luckily, there was a spot where the cool water and the hot mixed and it was lovely!

A Rich Man's tree

We are all looking to make our mark.  Years ago a rich guy decided he wanted to make his by having this built.
