Wait, how old am I?

Yesterday was my birthday.  My mother called me first thing to wish me a happy one, and also to sheepishly ask me my age. Up until a few weeks ago, I wasn’t really sure.  All year I went back and forth from 28 to 29.  Then my friend Michele said, “Do the math,” and I […]

Barf-bags and Springtime

Barf-bags and Springtime

Aaaaaaaaaaand I’m back. We’re back, actually. The grand adventure that the Commander was supposed to go on after Hawaii has been postponed so he got to come home with me. Of course, before we even left Hawaii his people had already made new plans to send him elsewhere in a few weeks. *sigh* Such is […]

A Soiled Towel and a Ratty Nightgown

We’re in Hawaii for the week. Have I mentioned that? The Commander is supposed to be heading off on another adventure, but that may not even happen now. So we’re waiting.

Scar Tissue and Drumsticks

Last night Tom was so happy with the dinner I made that he insisted I post it on my blog. I guess he thinks someone else might enjoy it too. It was delicious, but more importantly, it was easy. Before I tell you about dinner, let me tell you why I needed it to be easy. […]

A Quilt and a Full Bucket – part 1

All day Tuesday, I kept thinking that I’d forgotten something. Around 4 o’ clock I remembered the 4 Patch Kaleidoscope Quilt class I’d signed up for at JoAnne Fabrics several weeks earlier. I went in the next day to see if I could get in on the next class since it was already paid for. […]
