The past month has involved quite a bit of hard work preparing for our photography show; the show is opening on December 2nd at Marti's on Main in Albion, New York.  When we first decided to do a photography show this December, the idea seemed rather simple and easy to pull off.  Of course it could have stayed that way, but the more we worked on it, the bigger our plans became and the more work there was to be done.  No regrets about that at all, we are having a good time doing something productive and creative that the...

Our satellite connection for the Internet is very sketchy on stormy days, and today is a very storm day.I won't be able to upload photos this morning, and am not even certain when I might be able to get my blog uploaded. Therefore, today's blog will be brief. Earlier this morning I posted the pattern for the fingerless gloves I mentioned on Monday. I am calling them Lucky Warm Fuzzies ... you'll see why. Now I think I will go bake a pumpkin for use in making up a Pumpkin Bread loaf to give comfort to my husband when he...
