In September, my husband and I were able to get away from it all and spend some time with old friends at a time share in Park City, UT. It was so much fun! I hadn't spent a lot of time in Park City, except to go snow mobiling with a friend in 1978! Other than that, we had always driven past it and said, "There's Park City! I went snow mobiling there once!" Trust me, the place had changed since the 70s.
We spent some time on main street, we rode on the Heber Creeper (a train), and ate at some really good restaurants. We spent a lot of time finding places to park because Park City does not live up to its name in that department. Mostly we played games and talked and caught up with our friends.
My friend Kathy, on the left, is quite the seamstress, quilter and other handcrafter! When we entered the time share condo, (my husband and I were the last ones to arrive), she had placed in our room some beautiful handsewn baskets, bags and pouches as little gifts! I was so touched and appreciative! All of the items are perfect for traveling, and I particularly loved the long, sort of boat shaped basket that ties up with ribbon, or unties to lay flat for packing. It was a perfect spot to hold my glasses at night and I have continued to use it for that on my bedside table at home. It is also the perfect size to hold a pen and some post-it notes! I am not above using it for my glasses and a pen and note paper all at once!

Halloween is over and the stores are filling up with Christmas decorations! I love Christmas and I do believe in planning ahead, but I sure wish that Thanksgiving also had a bit more attention given to it than just the 2 aisles of stuffed turkeys and sunflowers! Sometimes you just have to come up with your own ideas about how to celebrate a lesser commercialized holiday!
