We just got back from a mini vacation in Leavenworth, WA surrounded by snowy mountains. It is almost starting to feel like spring at home and I need to start planning the garden, but Leavenworth is just not there yet. It may be chilly, but the sunny and dry conditions still allowed for sketching. Let's face it, a vacation isn't a vacation these days without sketching. Just like on a bike trip, sketching forces you to slow down and see the rich details of a new place.

Today was a day of rest. We mosyed out of the RV park and down the road to Safford. The two towns blurred into each other. We searched for a cafe. We found one at Victory Fellowship. In this old movie theater were an empty cafe, Christian bookstore, church, and movie showings. The service was slower than cold molasses. We came back at 4:30 or the $2.50/person showing of Night at the Museum. Jon hadn't seen it. He seemed to enjoy the Jurassic Park parody. After enjoying chicken salad sandwiches and phone calls, I'm heading off to bed. The church's pamphlet quotes Jeremiah 32:27:
"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing to hard for me?"
But apparently spelling is still beyond their reach.
