A bright future

Now that my sight has been restored, I’m itching to get back into crafting. ALL the crafts. LOL When I was younger, macramé was my thing. I made bags, wall art, plant holders. I had a science teacher give me an assignment based on how much string was used to create an 8 inch item. […]

Nailed it!

These are a fun little project. I’ve done this before, but not with the intent to make it actually look good. These are super easy. You can find a thousand designs and modifications on Pinterest. Pinecones, wax and a string to light. The ones I’ve made were in a paper egg container and you stuff […]

Struggling

I have been working on reopening Carlton Club. For you new readers, it was a club in Second Life that I opened just before the world shut down with Covid. It was successful for me because I spent time there and worked it. Others didn’t want to put in much time so they didn’t get […]

NLP

I’ve had many people ask me “Do you practice NLP?” I always told them no. Why? Because I didn’t know what it was. So, since I didn’t know what it was, I didn’t “practice” it. Boy was I wrong. NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The base premise is “what we choose to focus on internally, […]

Merry Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s what the song tells us, anyway. But I believe it too. The death of my brother last week has definitely dampened the Christmas spirit. And then a mess with my siblings over stupid, but important, stuff. I won’t get into that whole mess, but suffice it […]

Sadness

My week started out great with an awesome ZOOM interview for a new at home job. The interview was relaxed. I seemed to say all the right things… which I actually meant. My daughter got a HUGE raise at work. We got all our Christmas shopping done. My energy was high and I was feeling […]

The Graham Norton Show

If you haven’t seen this show…. what are you waiting for??? I was discussing it with a friend who had never seen or heard of it. He said “Oh, Like the David Letterman Show?”. NO! Yes, it’s a talk show. Yes, it has celebrities. But the topics of conversation are totally different. AND IN BRITISH […]

Christmas Spirit

I absolutely love Christmas for two reasons, the birth of Christ and getting presents for someone else’s birthday. I love presents. I grew up in a large family on a serviceman’s salary. We didn’t have a lot. I remember mom telling me she used to have only a dime in her purse to make a […]
