I went to Lakewood (about 30 minute drive) today to see the little great-granddaughter. She'll be two months old tomorrow. Fiona has lost her "newborn look" and is so alert and inquisitive. Her grandma has a little tent thing with many to... Read more

I took my Spinning Wheel to the "Inspire Your Creativity" group this morning. It was a BIG hit. It's amazing how many questions they had. Everybody was interested, though., Then I got my hair cut today. I made a friend of the stylist. I t... Read more
Petite Place--A Team for Short People
Monday, June 01, 2015      4 comments

This is about my "short" time on Petite Place--about 2 months so far. It's one of the SparkPeople Teams I participate in--drawn by the concerned Leader and the fact that I'm 4'11" tall. Being part of Petite Place has helped me lose 3 of th... Read more
The Tortoise and the Hare 5K
Saturday, May 30, 2015      5 comments

This morning I went to walk in the Tortoise and the Hare 5K. There was an air of expectation evident everywhere. We weren't allowed to wear a watch or use any of our electronic devices to know what our time was. We predicted what our time wou... Read more
No, Not an Exercise Teacher
Friday, May 29, 2015      4 comments

Some of you may have noticed my status that I may have a paying job soon. It's teaching, which I absolutely love. Actually, I'm going to the school for the first time on Monday, so I can't tell you much about it except the name--Arbutus Folk A... Read more

We had a small group in front of the sign at Woodland Creek Park in Lacey today. I made deviled eggs and a SparkPeople recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies using garbanzo beans. The weather was agreeable--not too hot or cold and cloudy. FRA... Read more
Tapestry Day II
Saturday, May 23, 2015      3 comments

Today the Tapestry Group came to my house. I'm still working on my first tapestry--a beach scene with lots of layers--earth, sand, water, now sky. I can hardly wait until it's finished, particularly since I'm in the last element now. I have t... Read more
Red Hat Day
Friday, May 22, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday was the monthly Red Hat Chapter Meeting. The Theme was "At the Beach" and we were asked to wear what we wear to the beach. I thought immediately of the red one-piece swimming suit that looks pretty good on me. Then I thought again. ... Read more
The Vest Project
Sunday, May 17, 2015      4 comments

Now I'm working on a new project primarily--a vest for my daughter. She uses a wheelchair so it has to be short enough not to be in the way. She has scoliosis in addition to Spina Bifida, so one shoulder is higher than the other. I made a pap... Read more
Scrap Day

Today for "Inspire Your Creativity" we brought in whatever we thought of as "scraps" to see what we could make from them. I forgot to bring tools, crochet hooks (which I ALWAYS carry), glue, scissors, etc...only brought yarn scraps. Others bro... Read more

It's Done!
Saturday, May 09, 2015      5 comments

I finished the sun dress for my great granddaughter. I couldn't decide on the pocket--whether to use it, whether to make it the same as the dress itself, or use the paisley print that I loved. So, I made a reversible pocket and pinned it on. ... Read more
