Assembly Line Granny

I've been sorting through my digital pictures (7 years worth!!) lately and it tickled me how my holiday and just-because notes and gifts for my Munchkins have went from a few to 8 within those 7 years (! ) resulting in quite the assembly line of giving.  After all, I couldn't do for just 1 and not all 8 for goodness sake.  Here's some pictures of just a few projects--without the countless fun pillowcases I make most every year and the set of Bitty Baby clothes for each granddaughter when she turns 2 (receiving the Bitty Baby when she turned 1).  Before I leave the US in the fall, I always have books and jammies/nighties sewn or purchased for Christmas; but still, we like to send cards and icecream $ to mark all the holidays :)

On the Road Again

...or, in my case, in the air again.

Re-entry into UB was a bit bumpy this time--the jet lag hit me up the side of the head.  The result:  I spent about 2 days as a giant Whine-y Butt.  Yuk.  Poor Randy.  Now, it could be due to the fact I've been on 6 international flights and one domestic within the last 3 1/2 months.  It's worked out to every 3 weeks within that time--plus one Mongolia-US trip on the horizon in, yes, 3 weeks!  Still, no excuse for sin, hmm?

Stars or Bars?  Randy says perception is reality.  Do I whine and complain about the stresses and strains of this kind of travel/life or do I embrace the incredible adventures I've had for the last 7 years?  My choice.

All that said and out of the's some things that make me smile:

My travel buddies--my Travel Pro Walk About (#2 for me--my 1st just plain wore out.  I gave it to Randy :).  This is technically a carry on--but I just don't.  However, it holds enough to keep me for a month, fits in Asia…
