In my ongoing effort to be a better person, I have sworn to spend at least an hour every day on the computer making this website a better place and also learning a quilt program.  Having today spent considerably more than an hour in these endeavors, I am failing to see how utter frustration makes me a better person.  Nevertheless I hope this becomes a better website. 

The quilt program thing is less certain.  It all seems like it ought to be so simple. I mean how difficult could it be to click on a block pattern and print it out?  More difficult than I imagined.  But I will keep trying because the stupid thing COST MONEY.  Therefore I cannot just throw up my hands and say that I quit--not the Mennonite way.  More on that later.

Since I know that there is one person who reads this (thanks, Jeanie) I'll share a very odd thing.  I got an e-mail from a long time acquaintance that was on the order of "Hi, long time, I've been busy, my husband died this past year, shot himself in the heart, in October I went to Greece, got swollen ankles on the plane, how are you."  This is not much of an exaggeration.  How to reply presented a conundrum.  I basically said "So sorry to hear of your loss, sounds like you are recovering well, Greece sounds great, I am doing fine."   I mean, what else can you say?   But I hope to find something to say reasonably soon so that I can be a better blogger, if not a better person.
