I have a couple of really big memories about 2011. First, just before my birthday near the end of the year, I met my grandson for the very first time. I made him a mask, pictures of it are up on g+/fb. His bday is two days after mine. I was so happy that his daddy, my youngest son, made it back safe and sound from Afghanistan. He looks really happy wearing Elijah's mask eh =)
I lost a total of 45 pounds in 2011 after being diagnosed with type II diabetes in February. I also changed doctors (found one closer who has more than 1 patient at a time in his waiting room – ok actually, my new doctor's waiting room gets close to capacity every time i'm there).
I joined Google Plus in 2011, had over 1500 people circle me before the end of the year. Never did have that many on twitter even after 3-4 years there…
We had a really good Thanksgiving at sis's house. Abby is turning into quite the photo-bug as well. Never did figure out how to get Juli's camera to save pics to the removable card (it has build in memory to use besides a card?? when did that start?) Need to get model/make to research next time i'm over there.
2011 Was the year I started doing a lot more leather working. 7 masks made, 5 given as gifts, one still needs to be finished. Made GG a notebook folio thing with a xmas tree inside. =) Should have taken photo — doh! Jim got sicker, although the chemo seemed to prolong his life, the quality by all reports did diminish =( I miss him and GG.
