As I have mentioned before, Ann Leary is one of my all time favorite people in the world. She has the most amazingly brilliant wit and charm. She also has a blog that has become an on-line family. So welcoming and kind. Several folks have followed me from there to here, and I am overwhelmingly thrilled. (Not to mention in awe of the distances we all cover, Florida to Washington, Canada to California. Wink wink Lynne in Calgary.) (A brief aside here, Tracy broke her leg, so light a candle and send healing thoughts her way. No, she did not trip over a potty chair or the dog food cupboard like I did, she fell off of a ladder instead.)
On my very own I have updated the sidebars so we can see who said what, and go look at why. (Hanny is unwell this evening, some grocery store sushi invaded her tummy box and made her leave work early to come home and barf her guts out, so I didn’t feel I should bother her with my wee issues.)
So welcome all Ann Fans, to Julieland. Be wary of Mercury right now, poke around and see what a ridiculous family I came from and have raised. Ask anything you like, as we have proven (with photographic proof) nothing embarrasses nor bothers me.
P.S. to Annie, thank you so much. Those were invented patterns I came up with for my cousin Jannel’s wedding gifts. Her mother, my lovely Aunt Jenny, told us she liked “jeweled tones” so I just took off from there.
