I'm going to sew something every Wednesday night now that I don't have a YW activity to attend. This is about 1/10 of a quilt using Nan's jeans and fabric from my stash that I just whipped up. #sewingeverywednesday #thisishappening #ilovetosew #week2 #crappylighting
My friends and I had lunch at this all-you-can-eat Chinese restaurant (with a 2 hour time limit). It was good! This guy across from us was having a few plates of oysters (#allyoucaneataphrodisiacs). My friend Jenny went over and sat by him. She's gold. They shared a 15 minute conversation. He's 95, from Brooklyn, is a retired architecture professor and his wife has dementia and lives in a care facility. And he loves oysters! Why didn't I talk to him? @jennywhitcomb lights the world. #makenewfriends
It took me a few hours to figure out why the last batch of cookies were so flat...I used 2 sticks of butter instead of 1. And I went to the wrong house. So...welcome wagon take 2. I'm going to find you @marisa.rascon and I think you are going to like these cookies! #morebutterisnotalwaysbetter #ilovetobake #andbake #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever
I fancy myself as the unofficial/official Arlington Ward "welcome wagon" and try to visit the new people who move in or have them over for a meal. And I give them a photo of the Boston Temple that I took since there's no church bookstore here where you can get one. #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
