Goodbye to May

One of our coolest rainiest Mays in our 12 years of living in St.George. Enjoying the cactii blooms which were exceptional this year while still being able to get out for afternoon walks as the temps barely made it to 80 degrees, it's been lovely. Here's a photo from the Hatches cabin in Sanpete County that says it all. Peace.

DUP Closing Social

Seems like several things are stopping for summer. Today we had our closing lesson and luncheon for Daughters of Utah Pioneers with a lesson on Washington County Utah History and a potluck luncheon. I helped decorate the tables with my friend Vida who makes lovely quilts and projects.

Saturday Nature Walk

Well, our temps have cooled from 90 to 50 because of some rain, so we took a little nature walk down by the Virgin River that runs by our retirement homes. Saw some wildlife and got needed exercise.

Relief Society Humanitarian PROJECTS

Today the women in our Church RELIEF SOCIETY met to gather together humanitarian kits for refugees around the world. It was a fun day of working together then enjoying some healthy snacks.

We had my grand daughter Heather visit for a few days then joined her parents and siblings in Sanpete County at their cabin in the mountains nearby Spring City. It was an adventure to stay overnight in the mountains-beautiful sunsets and quiet.
