That's the title of my new Etsy shop. I made some scarves recently and decided it's time to see if I could sell some of them. I can add afghans, etc. as I make them. I am also working on crochet dish rags, but I'm not sure they're so good yet... Read more
Life's Bumpy Like Michigan Roads
Wednesday, February 18, 2015      9 comments

A friend of mine passed away last week at the age of 60. That's way to young; it did get me thinking about my life. There's a bit I still want to do. A friend from church just got out of the hospital. I went to visit her this morning. S... Read more
2/16/2015 week in review
Monday, February 16, 2015      4 comments

Considering I had an odd week, I guess I didn't do too badly. I spent one afternoon at a memorial service and another one at the hospital with Mom. The weather certainly didn't cooperate: lots of snow, lots of frigid temperatures, and me want... Read more

A Valentine's Day to Remember
Saturday, February 14, 2015      10 comments

The story began as I went to Mom's yesterday about 12:30. She was in the kitchen when I got there, but soon laid down. After a few minutes, she called me in the bedroom and told me not to leave. She didn't feel right. It soon got worse. Che... Read more

Words of Wisdom from Dr. Phil
Friday, February 06, 2015      7 comments

I used to watch Dr. Phil a lot. He's no longer on any of the local stations and I'm so busy most afternoons, that I wouldn't be able to watch him anyway. I always appreciated his no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is way that he has. I came across ... Read more

I have been unhappy with my lack of schedule and consistency in my life lately. This week, I decided to work on it. Every morning, I have done my exercising, walk, a bit of cleaning and got my shower in before I started on anything else. A fe... Read more

Monday, February 02, 2015      5 comments

I babysat two days last week. I am also home with someone who is recuperating from surgery, so I've been hanging around helping out. Therefore, my numbers for last week are disappointing, to say the least. But they are motivating me to do bet... Read more

Sherry sent me a text message early asking if I wanted to Skype. Of course! When we got connected, Sherry told me that she wanted me to see what Helena learned this morning. She started to sing the In The Jungle song from Lion King and ... Read more
Seven-month-old Star
Tuesday, January 27, 2015      9 comments

Helena is seven months old today. She continues to amaze and amuse me with what she does and how fast she learns. She's kinda crawling but going backwards more than forward. She learned that if she gets close enough to something to just reach... Read more
Week in Review 1/26/15
Monday, January 26, 2015      2 comments

I did a bit of paper work last week, finishing up my job as warden of the vestry and starting to work on taxes. I knew I sat too long; I felt it in my back and in my TMJ. This week, I am more conscious of how long I sit. I didn't like the pai... Read more
Accomplished What I Set Out to Do
Sunday, January 25, 2015      2 comments

Three years ago, I got kind of talked into being on the church vestry for a three-tear-term. Okay, I figured I'd learn things and do the best I could. Two years ago, but a fluke of luck, there were only two of us with time left on our terms. ... Read more
