Welcome to DreamChallenge

Having a dream to share my knitting creations, cooking adventures and caregiving stories with others is now a reality. I bet you know someone right now who is at home taking care of someone they love. A phone call, e-mail, note card or some food would all be appreciated. Sometimes an offer to stand in for that person is a wonderful gift. Think about getting a hair cut, what if there is no time or person to sit with your loved one? What can you do to help someone else, or if you are that caregiver, how can you get people to understand you would like to see them or have their help? Knitting helps me stay calm. Knitting helps my blood pressure stay normal. What helps you? Cooking is an adventure for me. My husband is a dedicated 'clean-up' person. Join us on this part of our life's journey.

Choosing to send out cards is one way I stay in touch with others. I address cards on Sunday and my husband puts them in the mail on Monday. There is always someone who needs a card.

After several months of blogging there is a reality that lots of people really enjoy this activity. Positively delightful people, living life to the best of their ability. There is such fun in hearing from others who have ideas, stories, crafts all to share with those who choose to read. Thank you my new friends in this unknown world/way of communicating.

Retirement Swing

A Retirement Swing was on my list of things to do later.  Well later is now and my husband Bob purchased a swing for me in June.  An ongoing discussion has been "well how shall we hang it?".
Our friend wrote his plan for hanging on a napkin while we were out to dinner.  Yea, an expert opinion.  The plan worked perfect.  Thanks Danny.

So my brother and his lovely wife come to visit on Thursday for the July 4th weekend.  Yes, Bob made hanging a swing an exciting project for the two of them and then nephew Bob comes on the 4th just in time to help hang it after all the boards were up and ready.

                                Such fun and now we have a swing.
