Science, safety, and seat covers: Thankful Thursday

Things I am thankful for this week.
  1. I had a wonderful day at the Science Centre with Sarah, Skylar, and Laura. It was just the fun I needed. I learned all sorts of stuff about butterflies and saw animated fake maggots.  It was a full day. The only disappointment was the picture I took of a dead mouse and her babies didn't work out. I was really looking forward to making my sister hurl.

  2. Though he was in Maiden the day of the trouble, my Dad, my step-Mom, and her family are all safe. Ukraine is in turmoil and it is hard to know how close people I love are to the chaos.

    No matter how long it's been since USSR,
    Ukraine still has the memories ever present.

  3. I had time to sit down and write yesterday. It was wonderful. I flew through an essay (is that the right word?) on what I think about aging, and finished another excerpt in my Memory short story. (That's coming tomorrow!!)
  4. I finished a great car seat cover/ poncho for a friend who commissioned me. It turned out so well, I think I will have to add it to my regular rotation and gift basket!

  5. The sun and warm has been beautiful this week - even though it did lead to more snow. At least the dog's booties fit well and he only puts up minimal passive-agressive fuss when I put them on him.
What are you thankful for this week?


  1. I am thankful that Ukraine has reached the point that people are willing to fight for their freedom. I only hope that like many revolutions, the replacement is not worse than the original.

  2. I am thankful that I am flying home to the East COast this weekend. There is no better pick me up than that of going home. Wish I could do it more often.

    1. I love when everyone comes home. I'm sure your family will love having you there, Janet!

  3. I am grateful that the warming temperatures this week thawed the frozen pipes in our downstairs bathroom. It has been unusable since the cold set in in early November!

  4. What a relief it must have been to hear that your family is all safe. I hope they continue to be safe.

    Love the poncho. The flower detail and the pink edging is beautiful.

    1. I really am thankful for that too, Amy. It worried me a little.

      The poncho turned out awesome. I couldn't be happier!


As much as I like to hear myself talk, I like to hear from you too!
