I am starting out the New Year with a wicked head cold, but I'm not letting that bring me down. The holidays were lovely. It was the first year that I did not charge a single item that went into Santa's sleigh. What a great feeling that ... Read more

Friday, September 23, 2011      8 comments

Food generally calls to me from about 4 in the afternoon, up until I get in my bed. I can usually have a great day and really struggle with my evenings. Tonight was no problem for me. That gave me a real sense of freedom. Today's eating plan... Read more

This evening was the Open House at the High School. Our youngest is a Senior this year, so this is the last Open House and the beginning of the end of an era. With five children spread out over 12 years, it has been quite a career of parenting... Read more

I spent some time this weekend watching the programs remembering 9/11. My husband was working in Manhattan that day and he was on a subway train that was stopped just before Chambers Street because there had been an "explosion" at the WTC. Whe... Read more

and then back to business. It was fun to just hang out with family over the long weekend. Everyone was just doing as they pleased. I was invited by one of the kids to take a walk/run. That was nice. With the company, I did a bit more runn... Read more

So far this "Spirit September", I have worked daily on sorting fabric and patterns and am working toward what I am fondly calling my "Fall Collection". I have to admit that I'm a bit daunted by the task, but I am determined. I have had more ... Read more

August kind of went forward without me. Not what I would call a very successful month. Lots of changes and travels. It seems like I spent the month trying to gain a footing in my life. I'll have to think about the positives. +I arrived ... Read more

Yesterday had some progress. No perfection, but very good progress. I took my walk. It was a 20 minute walk. My goal was 30 minutes. I cheated myself and don't think I didn't notice. I just touched the tip of the iceberg of my fab... Read more
