Safe in Rochester

As you can imagine, it's been a hectic week now that I am in Rochester with my friend who is getting tests and treatment at the Mayo clinic here. I've taken pictures all along the way but just haven't had time to do much with them. I thought I should at least let you know that I did arrive on time and without incident, and that things are moving along for my friend. But it is Saturday and we are getting a few days off from tests and appts and worrying. I spent some time this afternoon sitting near this fountain tucked away in the children's garden next to the clinic buildings.

And for the first time since I hit the road, I had the desire to get out one of my projects. You may remember that this is the first in my Azalea Mosaic series. I appliqued 4 squares while enjoying the sound of the nearby fountain and the nice (although humid) weather. A check of the home town newspaper confirms what I knew - that Sandpoint was getting way too much rain for June, about 6.6 inches. I was ready to get out from under the rain cloud for awhile.

Judi joined me a little later, and we giggled while blowing bubbles. Turns out I'm not very good at it, but I got off a few good ones.  

Am anxious to share more with you - this is an amazing place. Art and inspiration everywhere. This was one of the benches I sat on near the fountain.

Good job, Sheila! Judi looks so content blowing her bubbles, and your needlework is beautiful. Have a good Sunday.
