Today was my husband’s birthday. We decided to take the day off and explore some of the beautiful countryside near our home in Central New York.
We stopped at Buttermilk State Park near Ithaca NY – but the Falls had stopped! It looked as though they were doing some kind of restoration project and had to divert the water so they could work. Normally the falls are cascading down the rocks. It was quite a disappointment to see the rocks ‘naked’.
As an alternative, we decided to go down the road to Robert H. Treman State Park and have a picnic lunch. This park features a beautiful 115-foot waterfall. While I was fixing our lunch, my husband surprised me with a copy of Northwoods Flannel Quilts & Projects by Debbie Field. He had picked it up on a recent trip to the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake. We both love the Adirondacks and these quilts just ‘speak’ of the mountains and scenery of the north country.
It may have been his birthday – but I received a gift too!
There is always time to quilt!
