Life in Three Parts

According to assorted online dictionaries, a "triptych" is a set of 3 panels - often hinged - bearing art, photographs, carvings, or even writing.  

And so I picked that for the title of this blog, because - while my life, like yours, consists of many, many parts - here I'm going to focus on three parts:

1) Fiber Arts - my sewing and weaving projects

2) Furballs - our 3 cats, Sammy, Oliver and Popeye

3) Foreign Foraysa - our summer vacations and my adventures teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and hanging out with my Hispanic friends 

My goals for this blog are to post regularly, to include lots of photos, and to tell stories in a voice that resonates true to my life - the joy, the humor, the challenges, the progress, the frustration and even, periodically, the despair.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll find it worth your while to come back again.  :)

aOkay, okay - you got me - I know I'm stretching here to make the alliteration work...  ;)


  1. So glad you're rejoining the blogging sphere. Yay! Life, unfortunately, has it's challenges. We're really all like toddlers, taking one step at a time, sometimes shakily and sometimes steady. I'll be reading and enjoying your posts, whatever direction they go!

    1. Thanks, Gwen! Your emails really made me feel cared about and encouraged. :)

  2. I'm glad you're back!

    1. Thank you, Elaina! :)
      It's good to be back - I missed you all. :)
