      When I saw all the adults looking like the weight of the world was on their shoulders, I didn't want to grow up. Then, I found out that learning from and avoiding repeating the same mistakes was part of growing up. So, I determined to never lose my sense of fun and wonder. I like to think that I've achieved that - along with avoiding some of the land mines that I used to step on with great regularity.

      While it was a lot of work, I would say having Thanksgiving here with all of my siblings here was really wonderful. I also get a lot of enjoyment when I'm doing dye work. Bill (aka hubby) likes seeing me be creative because I get so excited by the possibilities. He says I light up.

I love seeing how all the wonderful people fill the box we make by producing a Masquerade. After all is said and done, and the work is over, there is the creativity and the awesome photos of what our friends have made to show off and make it all worthwhile.

      We have more people coming over tomorrow for a latkefest brunch, so on Monday, I'll look at creating some more stuff. I've got some ideas to try for the Loncon3 Art Show.

      Until later--
