How to Like Cauliflower
My husband's tired of hearing me nag encourage him about eating vegetables. It's a bit easier to introduce new foods to my step-son who's on a health quest himself. I joined Weight Watchers a couple of weeks ago and I'm doing well on it now that I've got th...

High Mountain High
My husband and I were invited to spend a few days with my daughter's family in New Hampshire last week. This was my first view of the little pond a short walk from the cabin. Mount Chocorua is in the background. Day-trip to Mount Washington Cog Railway View...

Water-sparing Gardening
Cheyenne Spirit Cone flowers Coneflowers with Lavender Wasabi Coleus Self-watering deck boxes I just can't keep up with watering. I don't want to have to water every day. And it's not kind to the environment to use precious resources thoughtlessly. So I try...

Self Care - Who Needs It?
My garden is still full of weeds. The patio needs to be swept. The windows all need washing. I see lots of things around the house that need my attention. I am retired and should have plenty of time. Is there ever enough time? I was having some new medical ...

He Likes it...He Really Likes it!
I've been dealing with auto-immunity for 30 years. I now have two health issues that could really screw up my life if they got going (and they have in the past). Hubs may be dealing with one now. We're still not sure after two visits to the rheumatologist a...

At the Finish Line
I'm finally coming close to finishing my boyfriend style sweater. The design is by Versaciknits  and it's called Pour Moi (for me in french). I chose this pattern because it's similar to just about every sweater in my closet. It covers everything I like to ...

Pretty Knitting
This shawl reminds me of a summer afternoon in my grandmother's wicker rocker. It's raw mulberry silk blended with baby alpaca and soft as a cloud. My grandmother was not a knitter but she tatted beautiful lace and would have loved that I knitted something ...

Bloom Where You're Planted
The older I get, the more I appreciate the plants in my garden that just "show up" every year. The gorgeous fern in the top picture just landed near the house as a humble "weed". I moved it into the shade garden and it's thriving. No coddling or coaxing. No...

Mom's Machine
 So my mother's sewing machine is set up in my sewing room/spare bedroom. Nicole from the podcast "Hue Loco" offered up a pattern and tutorial on her blog for a "Holiday Project Bag". So I bought a yard of daisy fabric, a yard of yellow "bee" fabric, a 12" ...

Introduction
I'm never bored. If I'm not knitting or spinning, I'm gardening or reading. Always up to something!
Bragging rights
It makes me happy that people I meet are surprised to know I've had Multiple Sclerosis for 30 years.
