Strange things were happening this morning. It sounded like the pitter patter of some rain on the roof, but it wasn’t raining. I peered up at the skylight and stared straight into some beady little bird eyes! For some reason, there are dozens of robins attracted to our trailer! And leaving behind the stuff that birds do. Hoping for a rain now!
We drove into Bozeman this morning just to have a look around. This was a spot that Bob and I had considered moving to about 40 years ago, seriously enough that we looked into employment at one of the hospitals and were given a tour there. This was when Brita was just a baby. We had friends living in West Yellowstone at the time and visited them and loved the area. Even though we ended up on a different path, I still was intrigued by Bozeman. We went there today to see if anything has changed.
The answer is an emphatic YES! It has become even better! We made our way to the old Main Street area (hwy 191) and found that it is thriving and well. New stores in old storefronts, old stores, too, and lots of dining choices. Lots of people out and about. I had a plan in mind to go to a couple shops I had heard of or read about. Main Street Quilting was a good shop, and even though I’m not in desperate need of anything, I did manage to find a couple things that interested me. It reminded me a lot of Bear Patch Quilting because it's in a really old building with creaky floors! I keep a document to store names of places that I want to go to, sites to see, recommended campgrounds and restaurants, and always quilt and yarn shops. The Bozeman list also included Stix Yarn and Wild Crumb Bakery. So we found those places and then Target for some supplies before heading back to the peace and quiet at the campground.
A few wonderful pieces to add to the stash! It always sparks creativity to mingle with the knitting and fabric goodies! Some of the fabrics I choose now are with the idea of using bits of it in a fabric collage, so I only need ¼ yard of those. Easy to pack into the trailer! Before we left home, Bob and Leisl installed some new drawers under the bed. Bob uses his for clothes but I use mine for treasures!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
