When we arrived at the cabin on Day 1 (Saturday), we unpacked the car, checked out the cabin . . yes, there’s a microwave; yes, there’s a fridge; yes, there’s a stove; yes, there’s a coffee pot; yes, there’s a toaster. I had my meals all planned out for the week. Every day for lunch was sandwiches. Dinners were to be hamburgers on the grill, hot dogs on the grill, hamburgers on the grill again, Italian sausage on the grill, and hopefully one night, we’d have fish. For breakfast, we were having biscuits or toast, eggs, bacon or sausage and on the morning Chad and Vince were going out with a guide, they were having muffins (that I’d make the night before and pop in the microwave on that very early morning).
We went to Wal-Mart in Mountain View, about 7 miles away, and bought the groceries needed for the week. I had brought meat from home but nothing else. Vince and Chad were both with me but thankfully, they were more interested in shopping for fishing supplies. Taking either one of them to the grocery store usually means the grocery bill is way more than it should be. Got all the groceries and put everything away. Had sandwiches for dinner that night.
Sunday morning (which is now Day 2), I turned the oven on, put the biscuits on the cookie sheet, opened the oven and WHAT? There are no racks . . not one . . no where in that cabin could I find a rack for the oven. Stuck the biscuits back in the freezer and we had toast. By now, it was getting warm in the cabin so we went to open some of the windows. WHAT? No screens on the windows. Vince went down to the office and one guy said to the other guy “hey . . what happened to the screens?” I dunno! Just open the windows without the screens . . we don’t have any bugs this time of year! OK . . I wasn’t too happy with that plan but I didn’t have a lot of options.
Bubba sent his helper down to the cabin to search for the oven rack. Nope, he couldn’t find it either so he left and came back with one after a while. Oven problem solved, screens on windows . . not solved!
Vince and Chad went off to fish and I was left to sew most of the day. Here they were leaving the cabin.
I got the rows of dad’s quilt put together but decided to change the plan a bit and didn’t bring any extra fabric so I didn’t get real far with this project.
There are actually 4 rows of blocks there but you can’t see the top row because it’s folded over the porch rail. I got all the border blocks pieced.
That was as far as I could get on dad’s quilt. Vince and Chad caught a few fish but had a whale of a good time! They went back fishing along the creek after dinner. Chad never gets tired of fishing!
