My DH said to me the other day, “You just love to create, don’t you.”  Why, yes!  Yes I do!  And gather… I love to create and gather.  That’s exactly what I did the other day… with a couple of girlfriends, we created pasta sauce.  It all started when a neighbor of mine surprised me […]

Now that we are underway with building our house in Hana, I’m having to go there more frequently.  My latest trip involved a dear friend, a picnic dinner, and a couple of tents. The night was warm and moist.  Convective showers passed over from time to time.  Safe and dry inside I listened to the […]

First and foremost about my last post, it was a doozy and I do have feelings about writing something so sad, but it’s where I was at.   For allowing me to vent and for your subsequent comments, I say from the bottom of my heart, “Thank you.”   Your kind words, especially from you nurses […]

Quiltlet #21 17 3/4″ x 17 3/4″ It’s always fun finishing something… even if it is something small and similar to something you’ve done in the past.  It makes me think that the month of April is not all lost!  I’m hoping you too are having fun at whatever you are doing!  Cheers!

I’ve always liked Good Friday. Not necessarily because what it means in the religious sense… although really, the day is devoted to pretty good guy.. but really, I love that we have determined a day to be “Good.”  I just love the sound of the phrase as it rolls off my tongue… Good Friday… Good […]

Part of the reason why I’ve been absent here has to do with my preoccupation with our house plans.  It’s been almost a year now that we’ve owned the property… longer since the seed of the dream was planted… and now we are in the stage of finalizing the major plans.  Early March changed things […]

Finally!  Something blog-worthy to write about!  Fabienne, a follower of mine on flickr, contacted me to tell me she wrote about me on her blog.  You can read the article here.  It’s too bad I can’t read it… she wrote it in French… thank goodness for google translator!  By the way, you can see some of […]
