Dizzy Blondes: 

Planning to take the Spindolyn to Sunnybank to spin for the Collie folks there. Thinking of learning to needlefelt.

Planning the t-shirt quilt and the Pennsylvania Dutch pattern for some hand embroidery (fraktur). A bit about hexen as well.

Learn your financial patterns. And see the section below on Apps to manage money.

Put a Lid On It:
Fiesta Salsa and Jalapeño Salsa canning for the year. The 2-day method: one day to just run tomatoes through the mill, a second day to actually make the salsa.12 pounds of tomatoes made 17 cups of processed tomatoes. 13 pints total between the 2 types of salsas.

My favorite books:

The Joy of Pickling
The Ball Book of Preserving Foods
The Joy of Cooking
The Perfect Scoop

Aw Shoot!
Daily 30 minutes on treadmill or elliptical to rebuild stamina. Hoping to get back to Running Dog podcast soon.

Something I Really Like:

Acorns and Clarity Money apps. My credit rating has gone way up since I started taking these 2 apps seriously.

Chasing rare Pokémon birds with the Santa Clarita Valley group.
