Who wants to live forever?

Posted on December 29, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Who wants to live forever indeed!  Not my hitch hiking lizard it seems and certainly not the snow blower.  Well, I can’t blame the snow blower after all we purchased it in November 2000 so if it was a car it would have gone round the clock twice by now! (yeah….that feeling I know!) Let’s […]

Our Hitch Hiker from California

Posted on December 19, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Our Hitch Hiker from California Yes we really did bring a Californian hitch hiker with us, we didn’t really want him and I am sure he didn’t want to come! Before I start this story I need to give you a bit of background data about me and animals.  I am not an animal lover […]

And now for the next exciting installment coming to you from Herriman!

Posted on December 15, 2010 by sonjabarrie

And now for the next exciting installment coming to you all the way from Herriman! (You have to say this in that voice they used to use in the 1930’s type news accounts at the cinema) In our last post we asked the thrilling questions: Did all the furniture arrive in one piece? Did all […]

elle est arrivée (and I’m not talking Beaujolais Nouveau!)

Posted on November 30, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Yes I’m back in Utah, AGAIN!  This post is kinda 2 posts in one, apart from the fact I have been too busy to post I have had limited to no internet for a week.  Now, as someone whose whole life IS the internet not having access for one day seems like a month, can […]

Stunning art quilts

Posted on November 09, 2010 by sonjabarrie

I have joined two quilt guilds since I moved to SoCal and have made some wonderful friends. The first guild I joined was "Beach Cities" very big but they have some wonderful speakers and it was there I joined a friendship group and met Jan, Paula, Sandi and Barbara.  We called ourselves "The Forgetful Stitches" […]

Where are my ace packers when I need them?

Posted on November 06, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Yes I'm moving again.  This time back to Utah.  For how long?  Who knows! Property values in Utah have now sunk so low we are under water with every house and because the last tenants (Mark and Rosalind Cazares) in one of the houses didn't pay their rent and cost us hugely to get them […]

Those Crazy Cats

Posted on October 30, 2010 by sonjabarrie

I just did a workshop at one of my quilt guilds, Flying Geese. It was a short 3 hour lesson on how to make a quilt called Those Crazy Cats by Buggy Barn. I just thought it was so cool I took some photos to show you.  No this is NOT the one I made, […]

The deer have nowhere to go!

Posted on October 26, 2010 by sonjabarrie

The fire did a lot more than just burn down a few houses, it has destroyed a large area of the ecosystem, that is really apparent when it comes to the deer. When I talk about the ecosystem I'm talking about the thousands of acres that were burnt and the effect it has had on […]

I did it in one day!

Posted on October 24, 2010 by sonjabarrie

My back didn't appreciate it but I drove straight through!  I usually don't manage to get the car packed and on the road until mid afternoon which means an overnight stop at the halfway point: Virgin River Hotel in Mesquite. It's cheap and cheerful and clean, all you need when all you want to do […]

Everybody sing: The hills are dead……..

Posted on October 22, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Sad but true.  Not only would I starve if I had to sing for my supper but the hills around these parts really do seem more dead than alive.  I don't think Julie Andrews would have much to sing about, well at least until next spring anyway. Everywhere you look all you see are blackened […]
