New Adventures

Hey Everyone!

I’m baaaaaccccckkkkk!

My life got crazy about the time I got this website set up. I lost my job, I found a job, I got sick and I got better. The new job and the getting better has been the best parts lately.

I hate whining about my health so I’m not going there, at least not for long. Suffice it to say that I spent an ugly three weeks trying to get over some nasty bronchitis. That little bout brought it home to me how grateful I am that I enjoy good health the majority of the time. That is no small thing!

Someone left me a comment that said my retirement wasn’t working out for her. To be honest about the whole thing, it wasn’t working out too well for me either. I hadn’t been gone from The Star for more than a minute or two when I was feeling like a deer in the headlights. Thoughts like, “What do people do with their day if they aren’t working?” And, “Really? People watch this stuff that’s shown on daytime TV?” And then fear overwhelmed me as I thought, “What if I get addicted to daytime TV?” Scary, right?

I had been away from The Star for about two weeks when I got an email. “Hey girl,” read the subject line. It was Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Company fame. She wanted to know if I knew of anyone who knew how to write quilt patterns.

As you might have guessed, I had the perfect person in mind. Me! That would be me!

So for the past month, I’ve been spending at least one day a week in Hamilton, Missouri, and the rest of the time, I work from home. And I am loving every minute of it.

I hope you can put up with this web site the way it is for a while. I don’t feel like I’ve done a very good job with it, and I’m sure you’ve noticed that I have a lot to learn. As life settles down a bit, I am going to see what I can do to make this better.

We still have a lot to talk about, right?
