Beluga Haikus

On Deck Beluga Cam
While working on the Beluga cams, the Captain worked with one of the interns to come up with an Haiku after I looked up the format for them -- 3 phrases, 1st line 5 syllables, line 2 7 and line 3 5.

I also took it on as a challenge for myself and came up with this.

What Am I Reading?

My life is not all cams -- pandas and the world of I somehow still squeeze in reading, finishing a book or 3 a week.

I've caught up on my must-read authors: Sherrilyn Kenyon, J.D. Robb, J. Kenner, Lexi Blake, Shayla Black, Maya Banks, Lauren Dane and several others.

Maggie and Crochet

My craft email brought Maggie to mind as she was the one who peaked my interest in crochet. My memories are a bit foggy. I'm sure Maggie crocheted ponchos for us girls. She then help me with crocheting my own.

Maggie would watch television while she crocheted hats, sweaters, or ponchos for baby dolls. I never knew what happen to all those doll clothes and baby dolls.

I never thought about it until now. Yes, Maggie is the closest thing to a grandmother to us. Her son, the superintendent of the building, would have been a second father.

No, I never did go far in the world of crochet. I've done simple stuff... ponchos... scarves... granny squares. I have a tub and bags of items for yarn crafting. I picked up knitting somewhere along the way.

Well, I have several tubs of craft projects that I might get to one of these days. These days have not arrived yet. LOL
