Color, Pattern, Texture

A good afghan will incorporate all three of those qualities. I’m not talking about Middle Eastern people called Afghans. I mean the kind that you use to keep yourself warm on a cold winter evening while sitting in your chair with a cup of hot herbal tea and a good book. I guess most peopleContinue reading “Color, Pattern, Texture”

Tooth Extraction and Dental Implant

I did it. I survived. Wouldn’t have been possible without my husband. Literally and figuratively. Wyoming is a very sparsely populated state. It’s the least populated state in the United States and the tenth largest. Alaska (the largest state in our nation) has more people than Wyoming.

I’m talking about the little things we have toContinue reading “How to Know When Enough is Enough and when Enough is Too Much”

Winter’s Last Hurrah … Hopefully

Moving to Wyoming from the higher elevations of Arizona didn’t require that we make too many adjustments to our regular routines. Yes, the winter was colder. Yes, it snowed more often. Yes, our heating bills have been higher. But all in all, we’ve all (including our dog Maddie) weathered it well. There were two things,Continue reading “Winter’s Last Hurrah … Hopefully”
