After working until midnight most days this week , including Wednesday night, the harvesters were rained out on Thursday by noon .  They are near finished here in Montana but need a few more good harvest days.  A wedding at the end of the month in Lethbridge is adding an additional layer of urgency for some of the crew.  I spent Friday morning assembling a fibre art piece, preparing it for quilting.  The picnic table was the only place where I could lay it out to assemble the layers.  A little narrower than ideal but it worked, especially for using the spray glue that keeps the layers from shifting.

By noon on Friday it was decided that the weather was not going to improve and that everyone was free to do their own thing until Sunday night.  We have been accumulating mail in Calgary and had some other business to do so decided quickly to pack the car and spend the weekend with Dave and Lisa.  It's about a 5 1/2 to 6 hour drive to Calgary but the highway is excellent and there was little traffic.  The pictures show how heavy the sky was.

We really enjoyed the weekend  and had a great salmon meal on Saturday with Dave and Lisa.  They certainly are a busy pair!  Saturday afternoon I was able to connect with Lynda, my new favorite hairdresser, and got a much needed haircut.  Sunday noon we headed back and today by noon, Don was once again headed for the field.  I haven't been out to the fields lately but he tells me it takes over an hour to get to where they are working.

Today, laundry, groceries and cleaning chores ate up most of the day.  Tomorrow the sewing machine beckons.  Oh and there is some mail to sort, file and do follow-up on.  Life keeps getting in the way of the fun stuff!
