This is a blog about me and my activities, not soup to nuts though because I don't go near the kitchen.

Getting ready for Christmas
All my shopping is done and the house is nice and clean(that is because we hosted the Lions Christmas party on Sunday). Now all we have to do is set up all the beds and mattresses for 16 overnight guests for Christmas. They will start arriving on the 19th of December. Unfortunately we won't be home because we will be in Baltimore on the 19th for daughter Amy's graduation with her master's degree. By the 21st almost everyone will be here. We will also be picking up our new puppy that we will be raising for Leader Dog. We will name her Mindy. She is a black, Labrador-golden retriever cross. The dog we raised last year, Penny is almost finished with her training and in a month will be assigned to a blind person. We are very proud of her. Honestly we didn't think she had a prayer. That day is also my Mom's 96th birthday, but we will celebrate on the 22nd. So it looks like a busy season with a 7 week old puppy.
I am a retired electrical engineer. I am the 5th generation to live in Detroit. My hubby, dad, brother, uncles and cousins and I all worked for the auto industry. I hate to cook! I like anything to do with a needle, not for shooting up but for pulling thread. Two of my daughters have a blog and I decided I wanted one too. My hubby said no one would read it.
