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 ...

Glad to be Grilling Again
You're absolutely right. This is not Lemon Grilled chicken. It's a lovely, pink rose (my favorite color rose) that's sitting in the middle of my kitchen table.  But let me tell you about Lemon Grilled Chicken. It's delicious and easy to make but it's not as...

Birthday at the Beach
Our youngest grandchild turned 4 yesterday. It was his heart's desire to spend the day with Grandpa and Grandma rather than spend the day in daycare on Grandparents' Day.  After a hot dog and fries with an ocean view, he spied invading pirates at the playgr...

Healthy Fast Food
Healthy, fast and yummy. And on the table about a half hour after you walk in the door. Take your coat off, feed the dog, kiss the kids. Put some music on, light a candle. Pour yourself a refreshing beverage. Go! 1. The night before, you put your frozen sal...

Cozy Corner
I love to spin with my drop spindle in the evening. It keeps my hands busy. I drink a nice cup of herbal tea or, healthier yet, a big glass of water. I'm not riveted to most of what's on the tube (with the exception of Downton Abbey or Doc Martin). Spinning...

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" ...

Oh, deer...
We get our share of wildlife here in suburban Connecticut. A few years ago a pair of twin baby deer passed through our backyard. It's still a sight to behold a herd of white tail deer looking lost and confused ambling down the street.

Sping Sox & Cheesecake
I'm on to my second pair of socks. This is souvenir yarn from our Canadian trip last October. It's self-patterning yarn from Germany. I was hoping to find a Canadian yarn but our shopping time was limited to a couple of hours in St. John, New Brunswick. To ...

Zombie Socks - Done and Done!
Hi Knitters and Others, Have you been bitten by the "knitting bug" yet? Good for you and the people you love. They'll get nifty knitwear (if they're worth recipients) and you'll have a fun (albeit frustrating at times) new hobby. This pair of socks took me ...

Clutter makes me Crazy!
There are plenty of posts on YouTube that explain the secret to an organized home. Marie Condo explains the secrets in her book " The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up ", which I admit I have not read. I think I pretty much get the gist of her program. Howe...

A pretty-crafty lady, wife, mom and gram and dog-mom
Introduction
I'm never bored. If I'm not knitting or spinning, I'm gardening or reading. There's so much to learn and never enough time. 
Bragging rights
It makes me happy that people I meet are surprised to know I've had Multiple Sclerosis for 30 years.
