1: 2010 in Review Fun - We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary, antiqued, rode our bikes on the NCR trail, swam at Padonia pool, played mini golf and went to the fair. We took several long weekends trips including Gettysburg, the C & O Canal and West Virginia and a long vacation to Michigan. Day trips included the Newseum, Cherry Blossom Festival, Ellicott City, Harrisburg, Longwood Gardens, the Arboretum, the Seton house, Mount Vernon Square, Civil War reenactment and the National Christmas Center in Lancaster. Dogs – Tessa loves her belly rubs and watching Justice League on Saturday mornings. Duffy loves me and whines when he can’t find me. Sleeping on my dirty clothes tend to satisfy him. Bixby aka Googer is still skittish but becoming more loving at night in the bed and is overall happier than when he arrived 13 months ago. Work - Ells continues to work on Bait and Switch which has 120,00o hits on You Tube. I quit Medstar in June then started with People 1st in August. The OT Toolkit is selling well and Maddak will be distributing it in 2011. I went to Orlando to the AOTA conference with Debby and had a tabletop display. In November I took a leave of absence from People 1st and started working on the PT Toolkit. Family and Friends - Matt grad from college and Steve from high school. Mom and dad came to MD in June and October. I visited San Diego in October for Joni’s funeral and then unexpectedly Kathy died. I became friends with Susie Faunce, we continued friendships with the Beegans, Dwyers, Ed and Karl, the Marks brother, Mark, Cynthia and Kelly and Mandy and Jim. Creative pursuits - Ells finished Beside the Manor Selby. Aethellis had 4 gigs and Ells is working on the St Augustus video and a new album - North Umbria. I’ve given up on traditional scrapbooking for digital. I also continue with Soul Collage.
