I am not a very patient person. Especially when I’m waiting for warm weather to come. I’ve been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for spring weather to come to my neck of the woods. But we have had weeks of overcast, chilly, and rainy weather. You’d think that we lived […]

I got the most exciting Mother’s Day present. Our daughter told us that she is expecting! Wahoo! Double wahoo! That is down right the best news ever. She has had a hard time getting pregnant. But this time is different. No endless doctor appointments. No outrageously expensive medicines or procedures. […]

Last week I went to a quilting expo in Salt Lake City. (That expo is quickly becoming my favorite activity to go to!) There were lots and lots of beautiful quilts there!  I am in awe of the skill and talent that those women had to piece the quilt top […]

As many of you know, I work at a university. Last week was finals. Then came graduation. I am responsible for all of the AV for our College’s convocation. Plus a few other details like lights at the speaker’s podium, making sure the risers are all even and level, that […]

Today’s word of the day: pluvious. Pluvious is an adjective that means rainy. Today is pluvious. Yesterday was pluvious. Weather predictions indicate it will be pluvious for the rest of the week. That makes for a soggy day in the neighborhood. Today, I’m pretending that I live in Seattle — and […]

I learned something recently. And it was something that I didn’t particularly want to learn. A couple of weeks ago I went to the dentist. No cavities. Wahoo! But. Here’s what I learned. Those silver fillings from days of yore. Those that I’ve had in my teeth since the Mesozoic […]

Do you remember the super easy piñata craft that I featured last week? Well, last week was spring break. My son and his wife went to Chicago for a few days — and left their darling kiddos with us. We made piñatas and my grandkids absolutely LOVED them! Immediately after […]

This week is spring break in my area. That is wonderful for all of the school-aged kids. However, I do not work at a K-12 school. I work at a university. We do not have spring break this week. Argh! However! My son and his wife are heading out to […]

Here’s another wall hanging that I quilted on my long arm quilting machine. This was done freehand. (Mainly because I couldn’t afford the computer software program! And that’s okay because I am really enjoying machine quilting!) My mother pieced it and also bound it. Isn’t she sweet? Oh, and did […]
