You remind me of the Babe. My Angry Ginger had one of the cutest babies in the whole entire world, and I’m not saying that because I’m her friend. I know a darling babe when I see one. Her nursery is decorated in Labyrinth, because her parents are insanely awesome and geeky. So I made what I think is my … Read More
I’m going to start out by saying that my family is safe. This is the main purpose for this post, because I want loved ones to know that the Yardley family is accounted for. That isn’t the case for everyone, and that’s difficult to wrap my head around. Last night was a panic as the story unfolded. It was a … Read More
And it’s beautiful. This is my son, Niko, now 14 years old.
It’s seriously the most darling quilt block, but perhaps not for beginners. I’m a beginner. Oh, isn’t this first little stripe cute? Sure is! Now make 60 of them. Anyway, I ended up with a darling little lap quilt that I was really proud of. And I promply gave it to my cat. Because it was my first block quilt … Read More

One year he asked for an escalator, and Santa pulled a few tricks out of his bag for that one. He doesn’t attach to typical things, generally. He doesn’t particularly care about gifts, and that … Read More
It was glorious. Such a beautiful, enchanting venue. I was simply charmed. It took place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, and it was otherworldly. The readings were beautifully done. They clocked in at about seven minutes apiece. We had three readers, then a short break, and then three more readings. It left me wanting more. The most memorable to … Read More
I’ve told you about the Frontier Girls, which is similar to the Girl Scouts. Both of my daughters participate and they love it! I can’t say enough about our leader, who takes my breath away. She’s Wonder Woman. They had a first aid day on Saturday, spending four hours learning things like CPR, etc. One of the requirements is to … Read More
My son Niko, who has Williams Syndrome, has a few fixations, Washers and dryers, for example. Listening to the same song over and over. Hotels and buses. About six months ago, we promised we’d go on a public bus in November. He’s been looking forward to it for months, and has asked about it several times every day. (Anybody familiar … Read More
