We took a trip to Idaho 12 days ago to help move my father-in-law from his home since 1960 to a independent living apartment in a senior complex. He is 92 and still able to care for himself, but the family home was just too big to keep up with. Our days were very busy, sorting, selling, packing, and making many trips across town in our pick-up truck. We hired movers for the big things. At the end of it all, we unpacked every box, found a place for everything, hung pictures, and made his new apt. comfortable and cozy. It was a labor of love for us, and we feel so blessed that we were able to be with him and help with this transition. It was also nice to be able to get all of this done in the fall before the first snow starts to fly.
I think fall is one of my favorite seasons too! I love the changing colors and the cooler, crisper feel to the air. On our way to Idaho we stopped to take pictures of the gorgeous colors in the Snake River Canyon, so I am sharing with you below. So glad we did, because on our way back yesterday, we drove through pouring rain for half of the 10 hour drive. We made back to Colorado safe, sound, sore, and tired, but thankful we are home!
I did this weeks challenge in our hotel one night, but never got around to posting it. So, better late then never! I have always loved the work of Helen Williams from A Little Lime Blog, so I used her pattern Gumleaves as my string and tangled in them. I would have liked to use a brown colored pencil to shade with, but I didn't have one with me, so I used what I had.
