We spent Memorial Day weekend at the cabin.
It was a bit of a working weekend. We'd work early and then the guys would go look for bears in the evenings. My husband cut down some diseased pine trees near the place. Not beetles this time, something else that is making its way up and down the valley. Crimeny, you think you have one thing under control and something else starts in. I think the blaze orange chaps are an especially nice touch.
We started the day with a good breakfast...

We have a big burning pile at the cabin. You can see the height of it here but the breadth is pretty astonishing. We had hopes of burning it while we were there, but it was just too wet.
We took my mother with us. She loves Ollie, just like everyone else in the family. Since the guys were out looking for bears after dinner, the evening movies were pretty much chick flick-o-rama.
In between bouts of spring cleaning laundry, I did just a little stitching. The weather was gorgeous while we were there, alternating between sun and the occasional rain shower. I set out The Obelisk of Nectar (and you have to say it in that booming Charlton Heston 10 Commandments God voice) and we had a couple of little visitors:
