A Ironing Lifesaver

So for many years I have slaved for many long hours over piles of clothes to be ironed. I came across the Rowenta Pressure Iron and Steamer. It has cut my ironing time down by more than half. I can iron a button shirt without any creases in about a minute and half to two minutes. It has made my " Ironing Life" so much easier

2nd Opionion

So we needed to have our brakes checked on our car. I was pretty sure that we were going to need to replace them. I took the car into a well know tire place here in town that proceeded to do a free brake check. After 45 minutes he comes out to tell me that we need new brakes, 4 new tires as the front of the inside tires were totally wore down to a bad wheel alignment problem and the back tires were wearing down thin.

I was quite surprised at his finding as the tires were only about 8 months old. Total damage to get everything fixed about $1100.00. Went home to discuss this with Harry and said that we should proceed to get the brakes fixed but he suggested on getting another quote from another well known firm here in town.

New brakes was really the only thing needed. Tires were in excellent shape with no sign of any alignment problem and had even tread across the tires.

We just saved ourselves $760.00. My advise is always get a 2nd Opionion when dealing with work on cars....

Summertime Fun







We just returned from our almost 3 week vacation to Utah for a family reunion and camping at Yellowstone. Of Course along the way we had to stop at the open house for the new Twin falls Temple. This was my first time going through a temple. I could not believe how beautiful the Lord's house truly is.

In Logan, UT where my husband was born and his grandparents still live was our resting stop for about a week. While here we got to see 2 sisters that will always have a special place in our heart. For those reading from church you may remember Sister Manchan and Sister Anderson. Well Sister Anderson lives in Logan and Sister Manchan was visting her. It was great to spend some time with them. Also while in Utah we spent a couple of days down at Temple square. Logan was the location of the family reunion on the Edwards side. Lots of them.....


Yellowstone here we come. Harry's grandparents on his mums side came with us. We camped in the park for 6 days. This was my first time to Yellowstone and I can happily say it will not be my last. We have already started talking about returning in a couple of years. It was truly amazing. The wildlife we saw was incredible. We covered most of the park except Fishing Bridge which the roads to there were closed to an incredible forest fire that pretty much started minutes before arriving at the point of the fire.

For the long ride home, we travelled up through Montanta where we stayed in Missoula for the night. Overall we drove just over three thousand miles and memories that we will have for a life time
