Been awhile since I've posted anything of substance, but hey, I've been busy! Had family in for Mother's Day and we went to Bear Country USA in the Black Hills of South Dakota. So much fun! The baby bears have been born and they look so cute. Wouldn't want to hug on one of the mama's though! They're huge!!! And the claws are frightening! We did see one bear try to eat the car in front of us. Must have needed salt or something because the bear didn't take a real bite.

Have been doing a lot of geocaching now that the weather is warming up. Have found some tough ones. I tried to plant one the other day, but it was STOLEN! Before I could even publish it!!! Can you believe it??? I was so upset! I'm not sure I'll ever plant another one.

Have I been writing? Yes. I did two more short stories and have been working on the mystery novel.

As for crafting, I've been knitting and crocheting some. This washcloths has a peace sign in the middle (got the pattern off the 'net). I've also taken up two new hobbies: soap and candle making. Love both! I am doing melt and pour soap, which I know that some believe it's not "real" soap making, but I don't have the time, the space, or the desire to do the cold process stuff. My sister, though, does it all the time.

So that's been my month or so. I'll try to post more regularly!

OK, so I like the Washing Well Wenches at the Ren. Fest!!!

You are Petunia!

Congratulations! You are a lonely little Petunia in an onion patch... a sweet delicate flower, sweetening the air around you. Being a Petunia means that you love life, laundry and the pursuit of cleanliness! You don't just love your laundry, you roll around in it, sleep in piles of it and have vivid, epic dreams about YOUR LAUNDRY. You care deeeply about the public's hygiene.
