Another day without the pedal to the metal...

I thought I was going to get so much done today.  Then, I got an invitation to go out to Boulder City and ride the train, so everything else was pretty much dropped.

It’s a fun ride, only about 35 minutes long- the drive out to Boulder City takes longer.  The kids enjoyed it-

The station is a museum, so there are a couple of trains to see-

and one train has a post office mail car open to see what they were like in the days of old.  They will be having a Santa train next month, only $5 a person, so that should be a lot of fun.  It only runs on the weekends- more info can be found here.   If you are local or planning on coming to Las Vegas, it’s worth the drive out to Boulder City.

Other than that, I got a couple of pieces cut out for what I am now calling the Rooster Bag, and I got the embellishment done for the Hippie Bag-

Where the two sections of the strap meet

The zipper pull 

I have actually had to redo the wire for this since the picture was taken – it got “pulled” by a small child, so I had to reinforce it.  I am now using the bag and I love it- the strap length is perfect and it has a nice feel on my shoulder!
Well, I am going to cut out more pieces for the rooster bag tonight, I hope.  I have a bit of schoolwork to do for my online English class so that will take up some of my time.  I may try to put some of the bag together tonight if I have time.


  1. How Fun! I've been meaning to take the kids out to that train for awhile now. Too bad they don't have online ticket purchase, that might stop me from going on the Christmas train.


  2. They do have a mail order option and you have until December 3rd to mail your order. The girls would love it- you really should try to go!
