No Sew Week :(

 I have not sewed in what seems like forever.  I am working today and am really hoping to pull fabric for the mystery and sew something tonight!  I did get to Wisconsin for a quick trip to see my Papa.  My mom and I stayed at my aunt Nancy's and I stayed the weekend with my best friend Monica which was great since she was unable to come visit me this past Spring like usual.  The only exercise I got was when Monica and I went for a brisk walk on the Chippewa River State Trail.  It was nice to walk in the woods and see all the water!
 My daughter Hannah was able to come to town on Sunday night and spend the evening with me then got up early to drive to work (she is a CPA and travels for work and she happened to be working about halfway between her home and Eau Claire)  We met up at Jill's (another long time friend of mine) and she did our hair.
 I love her!  We have been friends since I was 15 and she is one of the sweetest people I know!
 Here we are mom, Papa, Nancy, and me. He was doing much better than he was a month ago.  He is on hospice now but still sharp as a tack.  So glad I got to see him--it had been over two years.
 So happy to get out an hike...even if alone this past week.  I really hit it hard and did the Ridgeline backwards from usual to see if it was harder or easier that way. I think easier, but not sure!
