Tuesday’s Ramblings ~ 04 November 2008

The Reno Mineral and Gem Society had a craft fair at one of the local malls…while looking around on Sunday we ran into my husband’s aunt and uncle (he’s a geologist). Tom showed me some of his collections that were on sale. He let me have two pieces of fluorite on dolomite, from a mine in Tennessee, for $7.50. One is mine (the large fluorite crystal) and the other will be a Christmas gift for my niece. I also picked up a couple of petrified twigs for .50 cents.




It snowed up in the Sierra last night! Rained like the dickens down here in the valley…frozen rain on the car this morning. Grrr. I hate scraping the windows.



Some leaves that were in front of the back entry way to my work building.

Was playing with the camera settings on Halloween ~

    You are getting to be quite the camera lady. Love how the pumpkins only are in color.

    The pumpkin pictures are really cool looking–kind of scary! Perfect for Halloween.

    Thanks for sending me the link for the pioneer quilting book. Very interesting! The Civil War one sounds neat, too. I love reading the history of them!
