At the historical village loom house Wednesday, in between talking with visitors, I cleared one set of shelves so they could be moved to another display in another building. On the bottom shelf were some finished pieces of wood (4) that were rat... Read more

The day did not start well. The mat in the shower slipped and I went down. (I am waiting for the bruise on my knee to show up.) At the same time I pulled down the towel rack. The rack went back on the wall with no harm done. It was a good place ... Read more

It was a busy day. Old timers say Saturday will be even more people ! I was afraid the hat would be knitted today or at least almost done . I barely even knit two inches . One length of spinning is completed but nothing mor... Read more

This morning as I was heading to do one errand before going to the historical village I lost my sense of balance. Not as bad as I have done in the past but enough that I called in sick to my volunteer person. Managed to make it back home (drivin... Read more

Yesterday morning's "meeting" was sitting in front of a computer to take three different tests to get certified on reading, finding information, and math skills. Take at your own pace and when done with all three I could leave. I started at 9am ... Read more
"Lost" day - not my choice
Monday, August 14, 2017      4 comments

Today is a "lost" day. Or at least I feel it is. I am required to spend the day in classes at Iowa Workforce for testing, best practices looking for work, etc. I wish it were not so. I am feeling very close to having the rug done, in spite of ha... Read more

The day that got away

I made plans. I made good plans. The list was not overwhelming. But somehow only one thing on the list got done! This is what happens when you live with another person that feels weekends he should be entertained. So we ended up at a museum to s... Read more

Said I to Dearly Beloved when I got home at 10:30pm. I left him at 4pm to go to a friends evening made up of people from my old job and spouses. It was a great evening. We got to see the new house and several does with fawns (still spotted) came... Read more

Using the Rug to gain Rewards
Tuesday, August 08, 2017      5 comments

I really, really, really need to get the rug done and out of the house. I have things on hold until after the rug moves out. Some because the rug is using the space I need and some because if I start the fun stuff I will not go back to the rug. ... Read more
Head and shoulders, knees and toes!

Really just knees and calves. This morning I could not figure out why I was having so much pain even before getting out of bed and later going up the stairs (split foyer - 8 steps) after I got home from running errands. Then it dawned on me... Read more

Friday, August 04, 2017      2 comments

At Stitches Midwest in Schomburg, Illinois, Franklin Habit had a great talk about following the bunny that jumps in the middle of a process and leads one off in a different direction than one expects. It was what I needed to hear. I have a tende... Read more
Not in the plans
Wednesday, August 02, 2017      3 comments

Today was one of those days that got out of hand. I had a plan when I went to bed last night. But felt like crap when I woke up. I did manage the morning walk with Dearly Beloved and when we got home went back to bed for 2.5 hours. I felt much b... Read more
