The fifth day

Monday it warmed up to ten degrees, but it was overcast and a little more breezy than the previous days.  Early afternoon found the five of us headed into Kenai for lunch.  Then, we dropped Mom off for an appointment and went to a fabric store to pass the time.  Trish and I actually passed the time in the store… Lee and Blanche waited in the car. This was the most wonderful fabric store.  As I wandered through, I actually wished that I could sew.

It was filled with the most beautiful batik fabrics.

According to the tags on the bolts, the fabrics were hand painted and one of a kind.  Trish bought enough to make a couple of atikluks.  In case you’re wondering, an atikluk is a snow shirt.

Trish finished shopping at the same time that Mom was done with her appointment, so we picked up Mom and went to the grocery store where we all got ice cream cones.

Before heading back to Nikiski, we drove around Soldotna and looked at ice sculptures.

Lee and I got out and took pictures.

Soon after we returned home it started to snow, and I went down to continue work on a painting

that I plan to finish on Tuesday. And that, folks, was the fifth day.
