My trip to Oregon was primarily a "scouting" mission ... seeking a route and quilt shops for the Dillydally Trail!
My mother grew up in the John Day Valley ... and I am blessed to have family that continues to live there! I had contacted my cousin to let her know that I would be driving through and hoped we could see one another. She put her life aside ... and graciously invited me to join her and extended family members for brunch in her home.
Ruthie joined me! We had such a wonderful time stopping along the way ... sharing our lives with one another. We are only nine months apart in age ... and as the day unfolded ... we found so many parallels in our lives. Sometimes it was almost spooky! Them "nuts" never fall far from the tree! Priceless!
Time with your children ... whenever and where ever ... IS priceless!

Do what you love. Do dillydally!
