Short Fuses – Out in the World


Posted on Dec 7, 2007

My day job is working at medical school.  The bookstore manager at my school was nice enough to let me set up a display to sell my wares.   I go visit my jewelry often making sure that everything looks just right.  I always count the number of pendants and do a mental happy dance when the number is smaller than before.   I’m so thrilled to be actually selling my jewelry.  The dream is becoming...

Band Concert

On Tuesday, my 14 year old niece had her winter band concert.  She plays a mean saxophone.  I went with my sister.   At the last minute I decided to bring my knitting with me.  What a blessing that was.  It gave me something to concentrate on while listening to the 6th grade beginners band.   They are always a bit rough.  Although we couldn’t see any part of my niece while she was...

Thanksgiving in Newport

We spent Thanksgiving in Newport with my Mom.  We had a great small low key dinner with her.  We tried to walk off a bit of the big meal at the Yaquina Lighthouse.  We got there right before the sun set.  It was just beautiful.
