Sweet Diversions

Who knew that going through the McDonald’s drive-through would be the highlight of the day! Seriously, and this from someone who hates drive-throughs. However, that is exactly what happened the other day. It was a beautiful day and so Kevin and I decided to go for a...

Keeping Busy in the New Normal

Keeping Busy in the New Normal

Interestingly, and I think I have mentioned this before, my world doesn’t look that much different these days than it did before. I mean I have been working from home now for a couple of years and I don’t tend to go out much anyway. I do miss going to church on...

Quilting in Strange Times

Quilting in Strange Times

Inside Happenings! Don’t know what else to call it really! I have started making bread every other day, it is just a quick artisan loaf however I am thinking maybe it’s time to branch out and try other types of bread. We’ll see. I baked a cake last night. It must have...

Staying Home! Love it or Hate it!

Staying Home! Love it or Hate it!

For some people staying inside can be incredibly hard, they need to be out meeting people. These people get their energy from being around other people. I don’t happen to be one of those people. I really enjoy my time alone so staying inside in quiet introspection is...

Getting back to Normal, Whatever that is!

The Rebuild

The Rebuild

  Well, things are finally getting put back together. In fact, by the end of next week (fingers crossed) I should have my house back in order. The quilting room is all back and better than ever! It was a good opportunity to go through the many books, magazine,...

So it Starts!

So it Starts!

It’s official! Yup, we have entered a whole new year! What will this new year bring I wonder? Do you look at the new year with dread or with possibilities? I think in the past I always looked at the new year with well, maybe not dread, but maybe you know, same old...

Finishing Frenzy and Travel Updates

Whew, those Japan posts took a lot to put together. I’m so glad I did though as now I have a great reminder of what a great trip it was. So, what’s been going on around here since I finally finished up the trip. Well, as I think I mentioned in my last blog post-Mom...

Final Days of the Trip Disney Sea

Final Days of the Trip Disney Sea

This was to be a travel day to our last destination. Karen had been fighting a cold the last couple of days and this morning I woke up not feeling so well. Since travelling on the trains in Japan wearing a mask is more the norm than not, both Karen and I decided to...
