Struggling with Myself
Wednesday, October 14, 2015      11 comments

I reached Maintenance (yes, for me capitalized) over a year ago. I still don't know how many calories I should have daily. I know to lose weight I need to aim for around 1200 calories -- that helped me lose the 5 more pounds to get to my curre... Read more
Three Days to Rest
Tuesday, October 13, 2015      4 comments

After all the hubbub surrounding the fender fender (well, actually a bumper bump) and getting the car into the shop and me into a rental, I've barely had to drive it. I've enjoyed the last three days of doing my crafts, trying out some new reci... Read more
Fighting with the Loom
Saturday, October 10, 2015      4 comments

For the past few weeks, I've been warping my 2-harness loom. I plan to make this weaving just like the previous one, so I tied on the threads to the ends left in the loom. I didn't know what I was doing...but I finally got it done! Now to... Read more
It's Exciting!

WOW! The Wednesay "Inspire Your Creativity" group met yesterday. Today we'll have the Thursday "Inspire Your Creativity". It was truly inspiring to sit and listen to the planning the Wednesday group did. Rather nice for me to sit back and be... Read more

I've tried for two days now to add a blog. I wrote to Technical Support about it and they suggested I try another browser. I can see this one is going to work because the "Post Blog Entry" is at the bottom. I couldn't scroll down to that befo... Read more
Oh, Happy Day! They came.

We had a full house today for the Thursday "Inspire Your Creativity" group. All my calls and emails paid off. Looks like they'll be coming regularly, too. I'm SO happy. One of the new members is an entertainer and an oil painter and a pu... Read more
Two Creativity Groups
Monday, September 28, 2015      3 comments

We now have two "inspire Your Creativity" groups. One of our members is a fantastic artist. She used to own a Gallery and I tell folks, "Whatever type of art activity you mention, she's done it...AND she has all the supplies to do it again at ... Read more
The Meetup
Tuesday, September 22, 2015      8 comments

I'd advise any Team Leaders from Geographic Teams to try Meetups. There's so much more interaction when people are face-to-face. This month my Personal Trainer Braden Hamilton gave us the basics of a strength training workout. I know everyone... Read more
Rewarding Myself
Sunday, September 20, 2015      5 comments

Today was the day I taught my tatting students to use the shuttle. It was definitely an intense session, and both students DID get the "trick" and were able to make several rings. After they left, I felt drained. I decided to "reward" myself ... Read more
A Day With the Weavers
Friday, September 18, 2015      6 comments

After a hiatus over the summer, we had our Weavers Guild meeting today. Especially at this time of stress in my family, it was SO refreshing to be with the weavers. They are such lively, knowledgeable and sharing people. Our program was a... Read more
Oh How GREAT It Is to Have Friends
Wednesday, September 16, 2015      8 comments

I know these paragraphs don't seem to go together...but so is my life right now. It's a very stressful time involving my husband's health, my daughters-grandson-great-grand
children, and all who love them. In all this, my friends and my cre... Read more

Today was a planning day for Sunday's Meetup. Rain is predicted, so it's good news that we are going inside. (The last four or five have been held outdoors at a park.) Here's my announcement: Our September Meetup will be this coming Sund... Read more
Speeding Ticket
Saturday, September 12, 2015      10 comments

I thought I'd be early. I was meeting my best friend at the cemetery of my godson to celebrate his birthday, put some flowers on his grave, and release a "Happy Birthday" balloon. We do this twice a year--on his birthday (today) and on his dea... Read more
Tatting Day 1
Saturday, September 05, 2015      8 comments

The class went very well today. I had two students, one on either side. There is a 3rd student who emailed me and told me she had to go to New Hampshire on a family emergency. I've told her I'll make time to teach her when she gets back. She... Read more
My Rescue Wheels
Wednesday, September 02, 2015      5 comments

I bought two antique spinning wheels on Monday. They weren't being used and the people who had them had no use for them. I had to rescue them. Today I took them to my Spinning Teacher. She was able to put them together (one was like a ... Read more
