Right up to the last day too! DW was at work, so I finally had time to work on his Christmas blanket. He'd mentioned that he would like a larger sofa blanket than the one previously.

For fear of another graceless fall, I hadn't brought my camera phone. The… Continue reading Laguna Seca -Day #8

Papa & Becky have a lovely home in Pahrump. They made us feel very welcome. They also have Pixie's first born puppy, Sookie. He is the… Continue reading Workbasket – Welcome back
