I finished a couple of roses and almost finished another yesterday.  They are a little better than last years, I feel.  Then this morning, after the pool, I had coffee with Kay and was able to tell her how inadequate I felt the last two years at the convention.  I have to find something within my abilities not within my learning disabilities. 

Working with people is something I am good at.  If I can consistently make the new Chair smile and tell me that, perhaps I can make many more folks smile.  So thanks to Kay, I came into today with a smile of my own on my face.


  • Himself:  Really sticking to his diet.  Working hard at work but willing to go play at Costco this evening after dinner.
  • Herself:  Had a dry muffin for breakfast….serves me right.  LOL  Thumb still not back to the new normal.
  • Reading:  One of the D. E. Stevenson books about Mrs. Tim of the Regiment….kind gentle things.
  • Gratitude’s:  That I have a friend like Kay to listen.


    1. Real friends are to be treasured! Gorgeous rose!

    2. It's good to know what we can and cannot do. Unfortunately, my Cannots far outweigh my Cans. :)

      PS: I see that American Man is getting around. Ugh.

    3. Oooooh.... Your rose looks so silky!Hmmm... Another Kay?


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.


    Here are a few of the delightful Steampunk folks enjoying the alternative world the museum offered this night.   So glad I could go.  ...
