Sometimes when I don't feel like climbing the stairs to the sewing room and sitting at the sewing machine, this is almost as fun as making quilt. I love this chicken puzzle. I would like to have some real chickens.... Continue reading

I thought that I might work on making the binding for my Little Pink Houses quilt today. But after I got up here to the sewing room I discovered that I didn't feel that well after all. So instead, I... Continue reading

I haven't done a smidgen bit of gardening this year. And unless something unexpected happens, pain/fatigue-wise, I doubt I will be doing any. But some of my pitiful efforts from last year paid off. Look at this lovely lavender clematis... Continue reading

If Jesse ever does move out, the dogs and I are really going to miss Taco and Bella. After a very rainy week, it seems severe weather is imminent here today, according to weather reports. And you know what stormy... Continue reading

I made it through my soup deliveries yesterday, even though my vision was way off and I walked like someone suffering from severe inebriation. My eye doctor told me that the vision problem is caused by thick eye secretions, and... Continue reading

I just found this image that perfectly describes my life. Funny too. Because this morning I'm feeling so much like giving up. I've been planning all morning how to tell family and friends, that's it. I'm not doing anything else... Continue reading
