iPhone-o-Gram! Relaxing Day!

Today is for relaxing and adjusting our body clocks to the four hour time difference between Alaska and North Carolina.

We wandered into Soldotna for a look – see! What a charming place.

The Hubster needed a fishing license for his fishing trip tomorrow, and we needed some groceries for lunches and snacks, etc.

We stopped to eat at the local diner – The Caribou family restaurant. Yummy food! So of course we had to pose with the carved caribou in the yard!

It's the perfect day for an afternoon nap, followed by some easy hand quilting in the little cabin where we are staying.

Dinner is planned in a neighboring cabin with ladies from the Kenai Peninsula Quilters---I can't wait!!

How relaxing - a cabin like your own new cabin to make you feel right at home!

I loved my trip to Alaska 10 years ago and it is a place I would go back to if there weren't so many places I haven't seen yet.

Bonnie, My 89-year old sister-in-law lives in Anchorage. She quilts every single day and is an amazing woman. She is an inspiration to me. I would love to win the issues of the magazines with the Lazy Sunday quilt pattern in them. It would be awesome! You are also an amazing woman for all you do. I cannot believe how much you do. You are an inspiration as well! Linda R - liketwostep@yahoo.com
