It’s cold!

Thanks again to everyone who left comments about my Dad. I’m glad to report he’s well on the way to recovery, and was able to spend Thanksgiving at home.

It’s been busy, busy. We’ve been shopping, working, solving jigsaw puzzles, baking and cooking, eating, and knitting. (Okay, that last one was just me!) Here’s a picture [...]

Worn Out

I have no energy today. It’s been a busy and tiring weekend. My dad had to go into the hospital; he had a heart attack (20-year history), but is OK now and will go home in a couple more days. There’s plenty that needs to be done before Thanksgiving, so I’m going to take the [...]
