Hi Everyone —
Greetings from Texas — we have eight NJNA members here this week so expect some great blog posts.
I’ll start by posting my SOTM piece finished through August!
Sue and I flew to Houston on Tuesday because I have to help set up the Correspondence Course section of the exhibit. Little did I expect that no one else was there to help (except the marvelous Sue C) with any of the distance learning exhibits and we ended up having to do all of them. My gimpy leg was not much help! We spent over four hours with unpacking and set-up.
Even with my bad leg, we managed to walk the perimeter of Texas multiple times!
Classes started today. I am enrolled in a fabulous class with Jennifer Riefenberg called “Winter Lights”. It is a collection of candles — not a menorah, but the same number of candles. Here’s my progress at the end of Day 1.
Tonight we had our opening Fiesta banquet dinner buffet with a live band and Texas brisket in multiple forms. It gave me a chance to show off my special earrings!
Cheers to all!
