So I see it’s already been several months since I’ve posted anything! Why? I dunno-it’s seems like the days fly by faster than the Thunderbirds! We started a major, MAJOR, building project last AUGUST! What could be more major than the original home renovation we did 20 years ago in our beloved old farmhouse? How … More Where does the time go?
I’m not sure how you felt about the never ending and relentless banter prior to the Presidential election but I can tell you that it wore me out. Regardless of whose “side” you were on I can tell you that I needed some time after election day to turn off the political side of my … More Love a reason to celebrate
I’ve been on this planet for nearly 59 years now. At times I’ve engaged in the gibberish of politics but more often than not I’ve been a so called wall flower. I sit on the sidelines contemplating participating but then make the choice to just watch. Now I’m by no means a historian or one … More Political Rantings of a non-millennial
I love summer. About as much as popcorn and popcorn is my all time favorite thing in the world-well except for my family and well, they’re not things so yes popcorn is my all time favorite thing.

Of course I still struggle to be on time-wait I have just one more thing to finish before I go! Anyhoo, my first visit to … More Exercise? Say What!
Where did we go this time! Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos! We decided to give our family a trip for Christmas-not the first time but always a winner in our idea bank. It’s not easy getting 15 people aged from 1 year to 58 in the same place at the same time but somehow … More Jump Right In!
Whoa! Here we are in 2016. Seems like yesterday we were ringing in the new millenium. Had a whopper of a party then! Oh what fun party memories are. And I’ve sure had a lot of them. Should have done a better job documenting them I guess. But when you’re in the planning phase of … More Jumpin January!
Well Christmas 2015 is now in the memory books. For me the preparation begins about mid October-hence no posts since then. With 14 in our family now there’s definitely a lot of planning that goes on behind the scenes. I try to make the day as special as possible with as many personal touches as … More Phew!
How can one not love fabric? The texture, the prints, the patterns, all so lovely. I’ve always been drawn to fabric. As a young girl my mom would take me to the Boston Store in downtown Utica. My hands would swell as soon as I entered the fabric department and I didn’t care. At the … More Fabric, fabric, fabric
