A Room of Creative People
Saturday, January 17, 2015      3 comments

I went to the Olympia Weavers Guild today. Such wonderful crafty women (and men)!!! It's so uplifting to be among a whole room full of creative people. Actually, I was late. When I thought about going to the Guild, I wanted to take my wo... Read more
Another Day at the ER
Wednesday, January 14, 2015      8 comments

Yesterday Ed and I spent 5 hours in the Emergency Room. We didn't have an emergency. When I called the medical clinic they told me to take him to ER. He was given an antibiotic without a probiotic. That meant the good bacteria were killed as... Read more
Dieting Again
Tuesday, January 13, 2015      7 comments

As most of you know, I've been on Maintenance for 4 months. My goal was 125 and since I'm only 5' (actually 4'11" now due to age) even with the weight I've lost, I'm still at 25 BMI. So, I've decided to go down 5 more pounds. What am I go... Read more
You are Loved...In So Many Ways

On our Spin Me a Yarn Team we have a question of the day. NANCYGARDENS puts a new question on each day and they sure do make me think. Today's question was "When was the last time you were loved by family or friend?" It may have said "told yo... Read more

A Call for Help
Sunday, January 11, 2015      8 comments

Today I finally wrote a SparkMail Diabetes Self-Management Team I put Ed on. The thing is--I'm doing what I can, but I'm not a nurse. I need support as I support him. We had a bit of a disagreement yesterday. He wants all the same foods ... Read more
All About a Little Knot
Saturday, January 10, 2015      5 comments

Today I FINALLY figured out how to make a "split chain" in tatting. I've been working on that for about two weeks, looking at YouTube and diagrams. (I've announced to my Tatting Class that I will teach them the modern techniques at the end of ... Read more
Got a Walking Buddy
Friday, January 09, 2015      9 comments

Yesterday went well. Ed did the driving and we had a good afternoon with my daughter watching the movie "Stolen" with Nicholas Cage. I'm waiting now for my new Walking Buddy Barbara. She's one of the women at the Senior Center--in fact,... Read more
He's Going to Drive
Thursday, January 08, 2015      2 comments

We're going to visit my middle daughter today. She lives a bit over 20 miles away. Ed has asked me to go with him. It will be the first long trip that he will drive. (He's done a few trips of a mile or so.) He usually visits her once a week... Read more
The Weaving is Done!
Monday, January 05, 2015      6 comments

Today I took off the first weaving I've done on my 2 harness loom. I made several placemats (there were 4 to start with but I had more warp) a tapestry sampler, and a small mat I'll probably use under a plant. I'll post some pictures soon. ... Read more
Back on Track
Saturday, January 03, 2015      5 comments

I am happy to report I'm back to 125 today. It just took a little more adherence to calories (particularly fat ones) and a little more exercise. Not quite to 125.0 yet, but I have hopes for Tuesday and my Weigh-in Challenge. We went to ... Read more
My German Binge
Thursday, January 01, 2015      4 comments

My friend's birthday was yesterday and she took the day off and asked me to accompany her for lunch. "You choose the restaurant and I'll buy," I said. She chose the German Deli since one of the fond memories we have in common is our time in Ge... Read more

My "rest" day. Tuesday is really the busiest day of the week. The afternoon is taken by Needlework Group and Tatting Group. I usually go visit a friend in the morning. With making 3 meals a day now for my husband, I've declared it my "day of... Read more
After the CT SCAN
Monday, December 29, 2014      8 comments

Today was before and after. Before the CT SCAN and after. Ed has an appointment with his doctor on Friday, and she will have the results then. SO, now we wait some more. My, OH! My! Did I work out today! It was Personal Training Day. ... Read more
Hanging in There
Saturday, December 27, 2014      7 comments

It's been a strange day for me. No social activities or friends coming over....just a long day ahead of me. Well, it's practically gone now, but that's how it felt this morning. My weight was right on the 125 mark--good news as I'm in a Chall... Read more
