Nostalia

The doll in the glass cover is from my aunt when she and my uncle lived in the Panama Canel Zone. They brought this to me when I was 10 years old, so it is an ancient piece of antiquity.

Learning to blog again

Its been so long since I have actively blogged that I have forgotten most of what I knew. I am working for a new company, LiveAgendas and we are discussing social media and how it can help business. We are considering a blog as well as facebook and twitter. I may be working on that so I guess I better get back up to speed here on this one.
I am living in Wimberley Texas, the beautiful hill country, where all the bluebonnets and other wildflowers bloom in the spring. I am near the Blanco River and it is really beautiful here, but it is a little strange to know that it is 3 days before Christmas and it is 75 degrees. No rain, snow or sleet to make it feel like Christmas. I liked the snow in Ohio during Dec and Jan but it did stick around too long. All you northern folks enjoy it and I'll try to get by with a snowball made from ice in my refridgerator!!!!!!

Time to blog again

I have not been here in a long time. Lots has happened and I am now living in Wimberley, TX. The beautiful hill country and it is so scenic here. I am near the Blanco River and the area has access to the park so in the summer I can swim in the clear cool waters of the river. Giant cypress trees hang over the edge and big flat roks are just below the surface where you can sit in the cool water and feel the current washing by. Its great! All your Ohio knitting friends you are invited to visit. Come see me.

Judge Andrew Napalatono and me

I was at the Liber-Tea party in Columbus Ohio on Aug 1 200 and we were waiting for the main speaker and look who came and sat down next to me.

The house I grew up in.

Wow what a change from when I lived there. My family moved into this house when I was 3 years old and it was not a new house then. This house was originally a one story house and the part that is upstairs was the house I lived in. The family that bought it raised the whole house up on jacks and then poured a concrete slab and build the first floor. When that was ready they lowered the part that had been lifted up and sat it on top of the new part. The upstairs porch was our front porch and the door that comes out on the upstairs deck was our front door. The window to the left of the front door was my corner bedroom. This house is in El Jardin Del Mar and it is one block from Galveston bay. The street behind this house faces the bay and I could see the water from our back porch. It is in a great location as all the Hurricanes that have come into Galveston bay it has never been harmed, other than a few shingles off the roof. This is really amazing as storms have hit a few blocks south and a few blocks north and have wiped out all those homes and this neighborhood still survives.

Ornaments knitted for Jennys Tree

These two were knitted while I was in Texas. I place the diamond and ruby ring on the white one and hid it on the tree for Jenny for Christmas.
