First of many? ? ?

I'm not really a writer but I decided I'd try doing a blog for a while at least. Hopefully it will be a place where I can share some of my hobbies. I bought a new camera about a year ago and while I'm still learning how to use it, I do come up with a good picture now and then. I'll post some of them and pictures of my quilts and fiber art creations. And if I happen to ever get a hole-in-one on the golf course, it will be announced here.

Today was a fun day. I went to an antique show with a friend. It's one thing to see things that I know my grandparents and parents had but when I see things that I had when I was a kid or my 20's, it gets a little unnerving. How can I be old enough that things in my life are now showing up in antique shows? Yikes!

I had a pleasant surprise tonight. Have you ever tried using Skype? We, I had it up tonight while I was chatting on IM with a friend from TX and suddenly my "phone" started ringing. It was my friend from New Zealand whom I had not talked to for many months. It was a short (10 minutes) conversation but it was so good to hear her voice. Love that accent. We figure I have to win the lottery (oh I need to play?) so I can go visit her. That is my dream vacation.
