Here I am, back again. Lots of things going on around here. I've been sick (still!), had a bad cold and possible sinus infection but I'm trying to fight it off without a doctor's visit. We've had a winter storm sweep through and have had winds gusting (today) up to 35 mph. Lovely. But it's a fact of life living here. Years ago when the Hanford Site was first operational, the workers used to call these winds "termination winds", because so many of the workers would quit after the first big windstorm. Of course back then there was much less development so there was a lot more dust and dirt that blew around. I admire the women who stuck it out, I really do!
I'm a scrapbooker, trying to organize myself. I'm also a quilter, sewer, crocheter, and cross-stitcher. Do I have too many hats on? (Probably.) I really need to get cracking though on some projects that I have started for gifts. I have a ton of things in progress (unfinished objects aka UFOs) that just need a touch more work to be done. Maybe I'll use this blog as my motivation ... Here's a digital layout I did of my daughter Sarah and her cousin Kathryn. We were at one of the local cemeteries on Memorial Day last year and the girls just spontaneously posed for me. Cute kids, huh?
