No snow but lots of friends to visit today and lots of quilting and photography going on this week. The seven cubs at the zoo are too much fun and good thing I have those clothes from the trip to Antartica for this weather! Loved the cookie exchange and wish we could do that monthly. Karen is here to visit. Cool!

It is hot and I gave in and turned on the AC a couple of days ago but only at night. I hate that sound but is sure feels good. I have even had to water the plants which also hurts but my electric bill was down many kilowatts so that is a good feeling and several people who owed me money paid me back!

Every year, the FONZ members get special access to the zoo and it is closed to the public for a few hours on Saturday morning. We enjoy free parking, donuts, coffee and access to behind the scenes feeding and lectures by the keepers. It was beautiful yesterday and a lot of my photograher friends were there. The lion family was out and ambling around.
The elephant was bathing.
The new birds at the birdhouse were very busy...orapendulas!
The alligator was fed and we even got to walk on the new elephant trail which is not open yet. We now hear June for the elephant house to at least be open.
Wednesday I am off to Kentucky for the big Paducah Quilt show and am planning an August trip to the Canadian Rockies.
Houses are selling at a record pace and we are really happy to see these purchasers get such great rates!
