This little brewery is right in my neighborhood. Yummy beer and friendly atmosphere. A place I can take my sketchbook to draw and feel safe if I go alone. Doggies are welcome but I can’t decide which of my boys to take, they are all stinkers and would pester the other customers for attention and treats.
Here is the deal:
Of course I purchased my membership, I am number 56 (born in 1956).
They have pinball, skee ball and a whole bunch of games for kids. Bring your own food. Check out bingo night, trivia night or one of their other crazy nights.
Delivered about 20 origami bouquets to one of the oncology coordinators.
Here is the report from her first delivery – I just delivered three of the flowers to the inpatient oncology unit at Littleton. The first lady was so grateful. The second one couldn’t quit smiling. And the third was a very weak, tiny, elderly lady who looked to be of Japanese descent. Her face lit up like sunshine. She had a pillow in her lap so I laid it on the pillow. Later, when I was leaving, I peeked in on her. She was asleep with the flowers in her hand. This morning one of the Radiation Therapists took one to put by the machines so patients could see it when they walked in for treatment. I would say that the first four made the day for a lot of people.
When I asked the ladies who run the oncology infusion centers for ideas for more ways to reach their patients they both shared a wish for some help for critical patients. These patients have been admitted to the hospital and because of compromised immune systems they cannot receive flowers!
My friend Seth is a master origami artist and volunteered to help me make these Bouquets! The butterflies were given to me by another friend Janice.
We hope to bring a little joy!
I wish we could donate these awesome folding boxes Seth make but they take him six hours to create….
Yay! What a relief to get good results from a mammogram!
Some days I feel like I am on a roller coaster. I have been waiting at the highest point of that roller coaster for over a week for the result. Anxiety building. Today I coasted down the tracks, an exhilarating and happy ride to the bottom. Anxiety gone!
We we worked this summer knitting these kits. Children’s hats with cute stuffed animals on top. These are donated to two elementary schools in our community. These schools have a high percentage of disadvantaged families. The children don’t have basics like a warm hat for winter mornings.
I spy a Bronco hat too. Hopefully one true fan will want it!
