|Ellie & Myrtle Efforts in the snow in S. Oregon 6 March 2011|
Dear Friends of Earnest Efforts - If you're going to break down somewhere, then Lakeview, Oregon is a really nice place to do this! Everyone here has been so helpful and friendly! First of all we found a tiny little restaurant last night that listed a garden burger as their first item on the menu. Not only that, they make their own bread, soup and amazing looking pies! The garage where the van is being fixed called a bit ago because the owner ran over to the autoparts store to make sure that they ordered the right part and found the part there. They're going to get it fixed for us today instead of waiting for a part to come in tomorrow. Two small shops down the street were very helpful in finding a ac adapter for my dc adapter, so I could adapt to a close to dead netbook battery. Nearly panicked when I realized the battery was down to 7% and I had left the ac adapter at home and the dc adapter wasn't going to work in a van with a dead alternator that was parked in a garage a mile away. Duh! The employees here at the hotel are so kind and helpful. Life is good.
I told Earnie this was the universe telling us to slow down and relax. Everything happens for a reason and I just needed a little reminder of this. To top it off we got a great sale from Singapore today on Etsy. I'm loving traveling with our Etsy Shop! But the real reason I wanted to write this post was so I could post a pic downloaded from our camera onto our netbook and posted here on our blog. Finally figured it out and did it!!! Thanks for visiting our adventures and...
Take care, be good & kind, and don't forget to laugh!
