Dreaming of a White Christmas

Another year is over. The Covid virus seems to have robbed us of so much time. I get a lot done, but at the same time, I get nothing done. I have spent the year designing fabrics, making resin statues, abstract embroidery creations, and crocheted blankets. I have been spinning my wheels on revamping my…

Congratulations and celebrations.

I figured that it might be time to catch up. I am never in the right frame of mind.I went to be with my parents when they moved. The move was hectic and tense. It is good that they no longer need to be on duty at night and can enjoy uninterrupted sleep.Once I got…

A Reader’s Digest

I cannot believe that I have let almost a year pass without updating my blog. The saying is that time flies while you are having fun, but I am not convinced that the past year has been 100% fun. Here we go with a summary of the past twelve months. We settled into the regular…

The long awaited visit.

It is amazing how you look forward to something for months and months and, then the much-anticipated event is in the rearview mirror. I was looking forward to a visit from Nana and Papa and, here we are, and they have come and gone already. It was lovely to see them after nine months. We…

Butterflies prevent madness….they really do.

Wow, I am never in the mood to update the blog. Not sure how much I will write tonight. We have just reached the 6 month anniversary of the lockdown for the pandemic with no end in sight. I think we have moved onto a phases where I think we now have to accept that…

Just STFU and wear a mask already.

Many weeks of hell for the whole world have passed since I posted on about the 11th day of lockdown. It is now July 24th, 2020 and things are really bad. An American is dying every eight minutes and we have dingbats that are insisting on making this political. They are insisting that the masks…

Day 8

Day 8 has come and gone and today it is two weeks since the boy got home. He has got into the swing of online schooling. He has to get up early some days because of the time difference to Manhattan. What did you do today? I woke up feeling that sense of dread and…
