Refinishing Furniture Can Get Your Car Towed
I have some old art deco style bedroom furniture that had belonged to my grandparents. Every time I looked at it, I thought, “That needs to be refinished. It needs new life!” There was a stretch of warm weather last month, so I used my spare time to refinish it. I moved my car out […]
Don’t Rock the Boat!
As most of you may know, I was on a sailing trip the first two weeks of December. My position as first mate was challenging and educational. Hoisting sails, furling and unfurling the jib, tacking and jibing kept me busy. The moments in between were the best! Gently rolling with the waves, watching a dolphin […]
Leinster Bay, USVI It’s the first full day out on the sail boat. We arrived here at Leinster Bay, St. John late yesterday afternoon. After an onboard meal of spaghetti, we did some star gazing. It is amazing what is in our night sky invisible to us back home because of ambient light from all […]

I ended 2014 playing with Dolphins (see “Fintastic” blog) in Hawaii and started 2015 painting a couple of challenging dog portraits.

OMG! UFB! And every other explicative I can think of! The first week of November, I spent six days swimming with wild dolphins in Hawaii. It was all part of a sound healing retreat provided by Estaryia Venus. The group consisted of 9 others and myself from all over the globe (We now call ourselves […]
Waterford Red Barn Exhibit a Success!
