Wow!!!  I have been thinking about this blog for a long time and haven't posted anything to it in a long time.  Today, I will post and hopefully continue to post for a while.

A lot has been going on but I am not going to try to write about all of that.  One major thing is that I spent two months in Anchorage Alaska teaching Montessori preschool for the summer.  It was the best experience I have had in a long time!!!  I have always wanted to be in Alaska and without much money, a job was definitely the way to go.  Last year sometime, I told my two children that I wanted to celebrate my 60th birthday by us renting  house in AK and everyone coming to visit.  I don't think that is in the cards because I have made arrangements to teach summers there for the next few summers.  So next year, my 60th will be in Alaska but I wont have to worry about my kids (age 29 and 23) arranging for a house!

When I got back, my house was a mess with mold and mildew,  I found out that I need a new hip and I broke up with a BF of 3 years.  Now that the dust is settling from all that, I am sewing and knitting again mostly because I am having difficulty walking.

I have arranged for caregiving when I get my hip and I am feverishly making quilts to give to my caregivers.

Here is what I am working on:
