Last year, The Trout and I met up with Pat and Chris, Californians, who are building a beautiful home right out here in Montana where we have been spending the summer for quite a few years. I first met Chris through a blog she writes entitled "Knitting Mania". We met last night to reconnect and had dinner in a lovely restaurant in Philipsburg. Because we read each other's blogs during the year, we just walked right into the present as if we had never left.
Below is the view Chris and Pat from their new home. I know many of you saw the full moon last night also. Isn't it amazing? The moon for all to see and everyone sees it in a different setting.
We drove about 3300 miles in 2 weeks until we reached our destination, Montana. We were fortunate along the way to visit my brother, both daughters, dear friends, a cousin of the Trout's, attended the wedding of the son of our dear friends and stopped to enjoy the beauty of our world.
Below you see the beauty of the Painted Canyon in Teddy Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota. We were so pleased to see that the land was quite green. It is a great spot to stretch the legs and absorb all the magnificence before us.
Things are different for us now. We are now connected to the Internet with broadband access, so I am much more diligent in using my minutes. I am not reading as many blogs as I would like to, but still getting a good dose of "blogger friendship" every day. The Trout is already out, his second day of fly fishing. I have my books to read and some "messed up" knitting that I need to correct, and some knitting that has been severely neglected. Life slows down and it is a good thing.
