Red Letter Day
Thursday, March 12, 2015      5 comments

If you've been reading my blog for some time, you probably know I lost about 40 pounds and have been able to maintain my weight for 6 months now. At the beginning of 2015, I announced that my goal was to lose 5 more pounds. Well, immediately I... Read more
New Loom
Wednesday, March 11, 2015      7 comments

Today I bought my very own 4-Harness loom. I've been weaving on one I borrowed for the Beginning Weavers Class. I have to admit I do enjoy all the patterns you can make with four harnesses. When we got the Guild Newsletter, I saw an announcem... Read more
Catch Up
Monday, March 09, 2015      7 comments

I'm tired this evening. I still want to catch you up on the last few days. Wow! What a whirlwind. Saturday was our Olympia WA Spark! Meetup. It was one of those days when everything delayed me and then I had trouble finding a parking pl... Read more
"Nervous" Energy
Thursday, March 05, 2015      8 comments

Yesterday my husband and I went to his Pulmonologist. We didn't get any bad news, just that they didn't find out the cause of the inflammation in his lung. Another test on Monday. Anyway, after that I finally had an afternoon to myself. ... Read more
The Beginning of Beginning Weavers
Sunday, March 01, 2015      5 comments

I had a good day with the Beginning Weavers Class. I had warped twice before...surprisingly though the others talked of having up to ten (10!) looms, none of them had warped before. I find that weird. And the teacher used my warping boa... Read more
I Love the Way a Day Can GO
Saturday, February 28, 2015      6 comments

Today I planned to go to a friend's house for the Tapestry Group at 11:30. She had signed up for SparkPeople but somehow I couldn't get to her to SparkFriend her. About 9:30 I was figuring out how I could get my exercise AND get to "fix" the S... Read more
Shoulders Part II
Thursday, February 26, 2015      5 comments

I've got GOOD news. Today I knew I wanted to do some strength-training. In fact, I should have done some yesterday and knew my shoulders were hurting too much to do it. I wondered if I would injure my shoulders more. Yet, it WAS time. So, I... Read more

No, I didn't over-exercise. These shoulders are giving me pain, though. I was sitting all day Saturday making this basket. I must have been REALLY tense, because ever since my right shoulder barks at me every time I move. It's rather ha... Read more
Basket Weaving--Part 1
Saturday, February 21, 2015      6 comments

I'm taking a basket-weaving workshop. It's a 2-day event. I'm learning a lot--but oh! how my shoulder hurts. I must have been more tensed up than I thought. I did get into the design and probably worked too long without a break. Tomorro... Read more
My Hips Will Outlive Me
Thursday, February 19, 2015      8 comments

Today was my one-year checkup with my orthopedic doctor. He showed me the X-Rays they took today and proclaimed that my hips will likely outlive me. He reminded me of how I had come into his office that first time, leaning on a walker and hard... Read more
How Do You Decide What to DO?
Thursday, February 19, 2015      12 comments

Our "Inspire Your Creativity" Group tackled this question today. There were lots of ideas, so I thought I'd post it here and see what we have to say.... Some ideas were "I work on something for someone else before I make something for myse... Read more
Altering My Pants
Monday, February 16, 2015      7 comments

I had set aside 4 pair of pants that I thought were way too big. I've been waiting for someone to help me by pinning them so I could take in the seams. Saturday my friend Kim came over and we got to it. I put them on (one at a time) inside ou... Read more
My Expensive Haircut
Thursday, February 12, 2015      6 comments

A friend of mine gave me the best birthday present in August. I'd been growing out my hair and it was finally to the point that it needed styled. So she sent me to Kerri and paid $45 for a new do for me. What a great friend! The result was f... Read more
Postcard Art
Wednesday, February 11, 2015      6 comments

Two of the women in my "Inspire Your Creativity" group accompanied me to the local college today to view their exhibit of "postcard art". Anything that could fit in a space no more than 6" in any direction. It was WONDERFUL! Such variety. Su... Read more
More Walking than I Planned
Monday, February 09, 2015      9 comments

I walked to Personal Training today. That was planned. I walked to the Fire Station to get my blood pressure taken (124/74). That was planned. Then I walked home (planned, of course. Then I got a call from my daughter's Caregiver tellin... Read more
