New Days of the Week and Covid data reviewed

Love meeting my siblings on Zoom each week!

In the spirit of protests and political correctness I offer to change the days of the week to the following because that’s the best day of the week and should say so.

Found my father, finally, and 7 siblings!

Kenneth Everett Paul Nelson 1927-2007

I grew up telling people that my father died in the Korean War (1950-1953) I was born in 1952. I imagine now that it was my maternal grandmother telling me that. Later in life, when I asked my mother about him, she said “he looked and sang like […]

Fidget Quilt

This is a “Fidget Quilt” for dementia and alzheimers patients, with velcro, hook & eye, belt and loops, zipper, button, tie and braid activities. Made for mother-in-law who still has busy hands.

The flowers are amazing! Wonderful that they will last a long time.

It made mom cry. She’s […]

Twins Daughters Reunited

I’ve been thinking about doing the DNA test to see if I can find my father or a connection to his family. Maybe because that is in the back of my mind, this closer tie has surfaced.

I always said that if God ever gave me more than one baby at a time that I would […]

Birthday 2014

We had a wonderful visit with Andrea and Jamie as they stopped on their way to her cousin’s wedding in Kooskia, Idaho.

They asked for a five mile run, because they are preparing for a race, and this is an area where I had walked recently with the walking group. We waited for them […]
