Front Door Makeover

 A little facelift for the front door.  
And now I don't have to worry about someone falling off the porch.

Isaac & Jenna's cute garage apartment includes a balcony.  
It's a beautiful place to live.  So happy for them.
Maybe they'd hire me?
Yubas River.  It was 100 degrees and 14% humidity.  
Maybe next time we'll avoid the month of August.
Still, it was gorgeous. And of course the company was awesome :)
We toured Empire Mine, the gold mine that started it all.

Crystal Junction

California Coffee Shop
 Miss them something awful.  
Hope they will be home sometime soon

Isaac's Studio

I loved visiting Isaac's studio!  I want a studio like this :)
 Lots of cutting & grinding & polishing goes on here.  Doesn't he look happy?
Cute community kitchen included
LoVe the bathroom sink too!

First Day

So glad Rachel takes their pictures on the first day of school.  This year is 1st & 3rd grades.   I always took the boys pictures on the first day and it was always so much fun.  Well, until they started hating it and then it wasn't quite as much fun.  But still, I'm glad we have those pictures.  I should go look for them.  Maybe Betsy & Kyle would like to see their dad & uncle Ike on their first days.

 Yeah, we're so not deprived on this way of eating!  I'll be so happy when everyone knows what  grains and sugar have been doing to us.  If you're interested in knowing more about keto, here's another good website, Ketovangelist.
