Birthday Party Antics

Doggy birthday parties aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. 😉 For me, it’s a great excuse to clear out a lot of the old, dog-eared toys and chews and give our pups a fresh supply of exciting new choices! With a little silliness thrown in for my own entertainment. Last Wednesday was Miss Rhonda’s 3rd birthday.Continue reading “Birthday Party Antics”

And … It’s Snowing Again

I generally enjoy winter. I have no problem with the cold or the snow. I’ve been living in snow country for over 35 years. It’s pretty spectacular. Admittedly, the darkness of winter has become more challenging over the years, but not for the reason you might think. I don’t find the darkness in itself depressing.Continue reading “And … It’s Snowing Again”

Mind Games

It’s amazing how easily your mind can play tricks on you. Certain events or holidays trigger an automatic response, right? For example; before Thanksgiving dinner has even begun to digest, we kick head-long into preparations for Christmas. April arrives and we think “taxes!”. It’s habit. It’s what’s next. Well … the last weekend of FebruaryContinue reading “Mind Games”

Trick or Treat? BOTH!

OK, I’ve come to the conclusion one can only stare at a bird-feeder for just so long before going bonkers. Rhonda agrees. Chickadees are simply too small to consider proper prey – and besides, Mom won’t let her out on the upper deck to chase them. This past week, along with bird-watching; I’ve made aContinue reading “Trick or Treat? BOTH!”

The Colorful Life of Yarn

Working on only one project at a time leaves little room for spontaneity or creative inspiration. Being pretty much stuck at home these days, I need to find ways to add spice and variety to my life. I’m currently knitting up a 3-ply art yarn I created and spun last year. I’m really pleased withContinue reading “The Colorful Life of Yarn”

Shiver My Timbers!

I thought about titling this “The Winds of November”, but it sounded like some epic novel. Besides; it’s not really about the wind – although I’ll admit, the wind has been substantial last night and today. The gusting winds woke me up just past dawn this morning, literally shaking the house. For you non-Alaskans, thatContinue reading “Shiver My Timbers!”

A Stitch In Time

Busy with my RV rambles this summer, I haven’t written much about spinning or knitting. It was enough to just keep busy. To keep my mind off Covid-19, other health concerns, finances, relationships, work and the future in general. Call it escaping, denial, or whatever you like. Everyone finds their own ways to cope. IContinue reading “A Stitch In Time”

Flexibility is Important

Yes, I can still touch my toes, but that is not what I mean by flexibility. 😉 My “plan”, to the extent that I had a plan, was to wind up my beach vacation on Thursday morning, with the idea of possibly stopping for one more night at one of my favorite woodsy campgrounds inContinue reading “Flexibility is Important”
