Chicago is Cold

Walking across the street in Chicago this morning and it is cold.  The leaves have turned so it is very pretty but still cold and a bit of drizzle to make the walk uncomfortable.  I think to night might be a Korean bar-b-que night with Cathy.  This will be my last trip to Chicago for some time which is ok with me as I do not want to deal with another wicked Chicago winter.

Welcome to My New Site

Chahinkapa is a park in North Dakota.  When I was growing up we spent our free time at the park.  At the time park had a wonderful log cabin with a large stone fireplace.  In the front of the building was a wonderful store that sold gifts, crafts and wonderful hand made items.  Many of the items were crafted by local American Indian children at the Wahpeton Indian School.  I am hoping this site will provide the same warm and happy feeling I had when I walked into the old log cabin store in Wahpeton.

I love art, crafts, as well as reading, learning and just enjoying and experiencing life.  I have been blessed with two wonderful children and three grandchildren. They are central to my life and participate in many of activities I love.

I hope the site will provide some interesting stories, items to buy and just some general fun.
