Yesterday was a pretty intense day for me.  It was my last day ever as an employee of Baird Engineering.  After 30 years Joe is going to just be working out of his house, so I cleaned out my desk drawers, cabinets, everything.  Now I’ve just got to get it all lugged into the house […]


Thursday afternoon when Clara and I got to her house after school we tried our hand at making the three dimensional hand pictures.  They weren’t hugely successful, but coloring is always fun.

Tuesday Pix

Tuesday when I picked Clara up from school, we headed to her house, where she helped me fix sweet potato soufflé.  She is excellent help mashing up the baked potatoes. Then last night was one of the family programs at the auditorium – I picked up June and Mason, and we met Stephanie and her […]

Adam’s Basketball Game

Last night I finally got over to see Adam play basketball – Jeff had been to both of his first two games, but I had been busy both of the last two Friday nights.  He scored his first basket of the season, so we were excited to see that.  And he was excited to make […]

We had planned on […]


Charlie and Adam were here spending the day today, so Jeff & I took them to eat lunch at Eagles Nest in town.  And Addie brought June and Mason & came to meet us, and then out here for a couple of hours of playtime afterwards.  It was a great day. AND our Christmas cactus […]

Jigsaw Puzzle

I thought I had posted this last week.  This is the puzzle we put together during our cold spell right after Christmas, when we just could hardly stand to go outside.  The shaped ones are always a challenge, but we were proud when we got it finished!

Charlie’s Basketball Game

Yesterday we went to watch Charlie play church league basketball.  It was the first game I’d been to this season – Jeff went last week, but I was at Biltmore House with Lindee & the girls.  It was a good game – Char scored six points, and Woodland won, so we were proud.  That’s him […]
