Cat Sitting

While cat sitting my daughters two cats, each morning I would walk into the living room and my red carpet would be all skewampus so this is what I found. Oreo is about two years old and he apparently love to climb under the carpet and then lay there. It is his security blanket for the night.

Both cats have now returned home and I have my place to myself again.  I have not blogged much of late because I have spent much time making reservations for my trip to Poland.  I am finally going to fulfill my life time dream - visiting the towns where my ancestors lived. I will not be blogging for several weeks.

July Celebrations

In Utah we celebrate twice in July; July 4th for the birth of our country and July 24th when the pioneers came to Utah in wagon trains, on horseback and on foot. I used to think that they all rode in the wagons but most really walked the plains and only rode if they were a driver or if they were sick.

Historic Tabernacle

The historic Provo Tabernacle caught fire from a faulty light switch. All that remained standing were the original brick walls. 

Originally, it was built in 1886 and then dedicated in 1889, it went through several renovations to update the heating and electrical. I even remember going to a Christmas musical one year with my daughter when she was at the University - the music was all in German.

The fire gutted the building in December 2010 along with a $150,000 piano and art work.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints wanted to save portions of this historic building and decided to turn it into an LDS temple. They put it walls on stilts while building a new foundation.

Work has been in progress for some time. What puzzles me is that in 2014 the Angel Moroni golden statue has been placed on this building before it is finished.

I caught a nice reflection of it in the window of the historic building across the street.

Orange Monday

 Blurred but Sweet! How did I get all those shoes in the picture?

This is my favorite Jasper Pendant from my handcrafted shop on Etsy.

Old Fence

Old but still standing. Happy 4th of July! If you look close there is a bit of red, white and blue on both sides of the star. This fence surrounds that little house in Heber that was turned into a wine and dine place.

Tilting Signs

Well, it is done! I had both cataracts removed and hopefully this will be my very last surgery.  Knock on wood. 

My family left for a reunion in Washington - my son-in-laws' family so it is quiet again. Last night I had just gotten to sleep and at midnight, my doorbell rang.  Needless to say, I did not get up and go see who was being so rude.

See that hidden tilting sign - I am sure that originally it was not hidden in the brush. Looking west.

The flock of birds are in the middle of a round-a-bout. Looking east.
