As I'm writing this, I'm relinquishing control to the automatic floor sweeper AKA BOBsweep. it's a poor person's version of a ROOMBA that I bought several years ago on sale at Target. When I first got it, I was so excited. No more cleaning up th... Read more

Hard to believe another month has gone by, AND almost a year since California's first shut-down. I completed radiation treatment last week and am really glad it's over. Unfortunately, I have been in some pain this week and really tired. No... Read more

December is all about waiting. We wait for Christmas. For the Christ child, for Jesus, for Santa Claus. I still get a few of those anticipatory thrills at Christmas, just not the same as when I was little. This year we are waiting for a... Read more

I keep telling myself to have a day to take it easy but it's hard for me to do that. Today, I thought I would take a walk, go to the library to return and pick up, then rest - read, putter. Then I remembered I was going to make twist or Hoska - ... Read more
