I finished quilting my Ultra Violets quilt and gifted it to our music teacher. This wonderful woman has been volunteering for 15 years in our school teaching music, art, organizing our monthly hot lunches (yes our students normally bring their own lunch) and putting on amazing winter programs. Her youngest child of four kids was leaving our school this year, moving on to junior high. She will continue to volunteer for music but is cutting down on other activities. She loves purple and has been so generous over the years to myself and the other aides and teachers, giving us gifts for every occasion. I have an incredible number of quilts and didn't need this one. I took a couple pictures in my pasture. She was thrilled to receive the quilt and overwhelmed. She received some other gifts as well and is so giving as a pastor's wife, it was hard for her to be on the receiving end!
Saturday I participated in the Maniac Dam Race. I am a walker, not a runner. I took the first picture at the viewpoint where the race started. This is the highest straight axis dam in North America and third highest dam in the country. The reservoir is 53 miles long and this dam is just 8 miles from my house.Looking down from the top.
Another view. For a year in the late 90's we had to drive up and over this dam to get to town while the bridge in the distance was being replaced. It made the trip MUCH longer!
Beginning of the lake.
My high school mascot is the Maniac. I had my picture taken with him after the race! Normally the top of the dam is closed and has been since 9/11 but for this occasion with ID you can cross the dam and back.
