Don't know if I'll get this done in 2015 or have to finish it in 2016. I'm weaving fabric for a dog sweater for a very little dog in SeaHawk colors (gray, dark blue, white, lime green) plaid. I've finished the sampler (16") and I absolut... Read more
Joining a New Challenge
Tuesday, December 08, 2015      5 comments

I got an invitation to join a SparkTeam that is all about Challenge. It happened because I lost my SparkTracker. Since SparkPeople is phasing them out, I had to look for a new one elsewhere. Amazon wanted $60 for one, so I tried Ebay. I got ... Read more

Not Going So Well

My husband has gone through a very hard week. He was in pain, and during that time he didn't eat. For those of you who don't know, he has always been slim (unlike the rest of us) and with his COPD (think emphysema and bronchitis together) it's... Read more

No Heat
Saturday, November 21, 2015      3 comments

The technician didn't fix the furnace. He found the problem and said it would be over $1500 to repair it. A new one similar to ours would cost over $7000. Then my son-in-law came to help out. He brought a small space heater that puts out... Read more

Today is a weird Restaurant day for me. Looking for some support as I venture out. It's a special day as the "Inspire Your Creativity" Group is coming to my house today for a lesson in watercolor (I'm a student, not the teacher). Two of the p... Read more
