You may remember that we went to my husband's Endocrinologist several months ago and it was a less than agreeable visit. The doctor seemed to be wanting to get out of the office, and told us we didn't have to come back. Well, we got anothe... Read more

My daughter who uses a wheelchair, her boyfriend, and I were to go to the 8k (5 mile) race in downtown Olympia. Each year there's a big carnival and festival and this race was part of that--3K, 8K, 13K. We opted for the 8K. This was the... Read more

Today I went to the Zoo with my best friend (we've been friends for over 40 years). I got my face painted as a lark. It was absolutely wonderful! Wonder if I can keep the paint on overnight. Wonder what my pillow will look like in the mornin... Read more
A Perfect Day

We have a question of the day on my Spin Me a Yarn Team (Thanks, Nancy!). Today's question was about how often we buy locally. It brought out a smile with this response.... I'm more aware of and wanting to buy locally these days. For ins... Read more
