AND THE BEAT GOES ON!  I’M STILL WORKING ON CHRISTMAS, BUT WHETHER IT WILL BE CHRISTMAS PAST OR CHRISTMAS YET TO COME IS ANYBODY’S GUESS.

THE DOLL PICTURED HERE IS ACTUALLY DESTINED TO BE A TEACHING AID FOR MY GRANDDAUGHTER, FALEASHA.  SHE IS AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST, WORKING WITH SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN AND ASKED ME IF I COULD MAKE HER SOME TEACHING AIDS THAT ARE MORE INTERESTING THAN THE STANDARD KIND SHE HAS ON HAND.  I WAS DELIGHTED AT THE PROSPECT AND MY BRAIN IS STILL WORKING OVERTIME ON THEM.  SHE NEEDS THINGS WITH BUTTONS AND BUTTONHOLES, ZIPPERS, SNAPS, THINGS TO TIE AND BUCKLES.  “HER” KIDS NEED PRACTICE WITH ALL OF THESE SKILLS. SOME OF WHICH GIVE ME PROBLEMS AGAIN NOW THAT MY HANDS ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT DOING MOST OF THE SPECIAL LITTLE ACTS WE PERFORM WHEN GETTING DRESSED.  I’VE HEARD IT CALLED SECOND CHILDHOOD — THIS ARTHRITIS THAT ROBS US OF OUR FLEXIBILITY AS WE AGE.  I HAVE OTHER NAMES FOR IT BUT TRY NOT TO USE THOSE WORDS OUT LOUD. AND I CERTAINLY NEVER WRITE THEM OUT ON ANY TYPE OF SOCIAL MEDIAL

OKAY, A FEW MORE PHOTOS AND I’LL GIVE THESE HANDS A LITTLE BIT OF REST.

THIS IS A SMALL QUILT I MADE FOR MY GRANDSON, NOAH.  HE WAS ONLY A FEW MINUTES OLD IN THE PHOTO AT THE TOP AND THIS IS MY FAVORITE PHOTO OF ALL.  NOT THE BEST QUALITY, I WAS TAKING A CLASS AND DEVELOPED AND PRINTED THE PHOTO IN MY DARK ROOM, ONE OF MY FIRST EVER ATTEMPTED IN A DARK ROOM.  MY REGRET IS THAT I DIDN’T LEAVE IT IN THE SOLUTION LONG ENOUGH. I LOVE THE LOOK ON LOGAN’S FACE AS HE LEANS HIS HEAD ON HIS MOM’S SHOULDER AND GAZES DOWN AT NEWLY BORN NOAH, ABOUT 10 MINUTES AFTER NOAH;S FIRST BREATH.
