Nine of Eleven

Today I went with one of my nieces craft shopping.  I used gift cards and holiday cash to make all of my purchases!  The other great thing is everything I bought was on sale - everything.  So not only did I get great deals and the materials I wanted but I didn't spend a penny … Continue reading Nine of Eleven

Long Weekend

Three days off was nice but it makes for an odd start to the week.  It's Tuesday already and I feel like I'm behind but I'm not. The weekend was busy.  Vicki and I did the errands.  This included grocery shopping, visit to the butcher, Walmart, Aldis, and Hobby Lobby.  We grabbed lunch on the run … Continue reading Long Weekend

A Bit of Zen

It's Sunday night and I'm headed to my recliner.  It's been a busy weekend.  Yesterday my middle daughter, her godmother and I went shopping.  I drove, they shopped, I crocheted.  I wouldn't have minded going into the bookstores they went to but my scooter has been sporadic for operating. When we got home, I finished … Continue reading A Bit of Zen

Crafting as Therapy

Saturday I had a plan which changed.  My plan was to get a bunch of book work done.  When I was playing one of my games, I got several hours of free play.  So instead of being responsible, I played on my phone until my middle daughter and a friend showed up to go craft … Continue reading Crafting as Therapy

I went to one of my favorite places to shop and … Continue reading Disabled Shouldn’t Mean Unable

Coupons and Organizing

Vicki got me a binder for my coupons.  Up until now I've been keeping them in my card holder.  It is difficult to keep track of what I have with them in my card holder - they were just bunched together.  With the binder, I have a slot for each coupon.  We generally shop at … Continue reading Coupons and Organizing

MIA

For the last week, I've been traveling.  Ken and I went to visit all three of our daughters.  We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our family time.  I was very worried about not being able to go with all the problems I've had but I checked with the doctor and she said it was … Continue reading MIA

Danger! Beware!! Yarn Sale!!!

Finally I have a moment (or half a one) where I can put some thoughts together.  It has been a very busy period for me.  Here it is nearly two weeks later from the last time I was on here – I can’t believe that much time has slipped by.  Work has been frantic and … Continue reading Danger!
