Dear Kids,
          There’s been an inversion down in the Salt Lake Valley–horrible murk and wretched air pollution, and even Heber has been cold and a little dank. But here in the beautiful Kamas valley, it’s been warm, brilliant, and sunny. The Jordanelle hiking trail calls to me practically every day. These winter inversions always remind me why we moved here! Nancy and Bruce came by on Friday. They were out on a lark, to get out of the smog. We had a great visit. I think the valley murk is supposed to move out today, so I’m glad they’ll have some relief down there.
          We’ve had Mexicans working in our basement all week, off and on, texturing the walls. They come and work for an hour or so, and then we don’t see them for a couple of days. I haven’t been able to watch them, because I’m always doing something else when they come, and I wanted to see how they do it! They said they’re going to do the ceiling on Monday, and I’ll definitely be down there watching. Meanwhile, I’m planning the next steps of our project. Yesterday, Dad and I bought doors. We thought we could get them all at the Park City Home Depot, but it was hard finding the right sizes, and so many of them were defective! We drove down to Salt Lake and went to two more Home Depots before we had all we needed. I’ve also been looking at moldings, but I can’t find exactly what I want. Is there any good place to get moldings, besides Home Depot and Lowes?
          Paul has reserved a campground in Mantua for our family reunion, for July 7-9. He said he looked at cabins, but they were all terribly expensive, and none of them would have been big enough for all of us. I love camping, and I’m sure we’ll have lots of fun. We always do! 
           Love to everybody! Mom
