And more wildlife

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      1 comments

Last night I made a flying trip to my parents to pick up some papers. Fortunately I was driving slower than the speed limit when a doe crossed the road (well-traveled road) a few yards in front of the car. She was in front of me and passed befo... Read more

Wildlife while walking

Sunday, November 02, 2014      1 comments

Now that the time has changed walking--long walking only happens on weekends. Soon it will be dark when I go to work and when I get out. Today I almost left it too late. But when I was walking at a favorite park a dog walker told me there had b... Read more

Weaving Weekend!

Thursday, September 25, 2014      0 comments

The last two Saturdays, Wednesday, and today had huge chunks of time spent threading and making ready three looms at a museum and historical village for this weekend. It is the fall festival and I have been weaving on one loom for approximately ... Read more

Another Huge Break in Writing

Thursday, July 17, 2014      1 comments

Finding the time to put into words what is going on in my little corner of the universe has not happened lately. There is my Dad, now in hospice. Which has been a really good thing. He does not lie to the hospice people. They have been a great ... Read more

Long time

Thursday, June 19, 2014      0 comments

It has been too long since I wrote last. I have thought about writing but many nights have just been too whipped. But I woke up this morning at 4:30 and just decided to get up and do a few things before work. Work is total chaos. My Dad is... Read more

Make it Work

Thursday, March 20, 2014      0 comments

I love that phrase that Tim Gunn uses. It means to not throw out what you have already done when it does not seem to be going well. Look at it differently and make it work! Build on what you have already accomplished. I have been trying t... Read more

Nearly a month

My last entry was the last post-op appointment for my Dad. He got new glasses ordered that day. He is seeing much, much better now. That was also in the middle of two weeks of exams at the law school which was its own kind of craziness. Work j... Read more

Perhaps the last post-op appointment

Thursday, December 26, 2013      0 comments

Today might be the last appointment for my Dad's cataract surgeries. Even though he will not be driving for very much longer I am glad we got this done. It makes reading and other things better for him. Christmas Day we had 13 around the table. ... Read more

Hotel crazies

Saturday, December 21, 2013      0 comments

Staying in the hotel, mentioned in the last entry, was fabo! Quiet, I got lots of knitting done (completed a scarf) and had some alone time. Alone time is very rare since DB was laid off in August. I am the one with evening meetings not him. ... Read more

Heaven tonight!!!!

I am alone in a hotel room--no cats, no DH, no dishes, no nothing!!! Just me, my knitting, my book and my alarm clock. Tomorrow morning at 6am we must be at surgery for Dad's cataract. That means leaving their house at 5am (with clear roads). ... Read more

Snow Day

Sunday, December 08, 2013      5 comments

Very glad the demonstrating was yesterday! Snowing like mad now. I hope the roads are OK for driving tomorrow. Monday starts the rounds of pre-op, operations (2) and post-ops for my dad. All out-patient for cataracts but still worrisome. ... Read more

Day three of walking to work

Friday, December 06, 2013      0 comments

Walking to work gets me 60-65 minutes of walking. I record it as hiking because it is 97% hills, both up and down (feels like all up emoticonRead more

Crazy Life!!

Wednesday, December 04, 2013      0 comments

I think November 16 was the last semi-sane day I had! After that it was prep for Thanksgiving. You know--clean the house, bake, line up everything that people were not bringing. We had 13 adults and my great-niece (born in September). Watching... Read more

Shepherds Market today!

I am there all day with a information table about Iowa Federation of Handweavers and Spinners. Perhaps we will gain a member or two and maybe some of the groups that make up the federation will gain members because I have information about and ... Read more

The blankets were all completed in time for the handoff to the local grandparents. The brown one is going to Mexico, one of the purple ones is going to Florida. The second purple one is, I hope, being used as you read this. It was delivered on... Read more
