The Watson Quilters met Thursday night, March 8, with Holly Holmes, Anita Armstrong, Frances Nahkunst, Donna Whelan, Tammy Oakes, Makayla Oakes, and Kay Gibson attending. We now have 40 hats made, and will get them sent off this week.
I like words. I like to play with them, as you all know. I found a word that I wasn’t familiar with the other day. “Crepuscular.” It means relating to or resembling twilight. The first thing I thought of was lightning bugs. When I think of them, I think of twilight. Then an old song went through my head,
“Heavenly shades of night are falling, it’s twilight time.” Loved that song.
Then I realized… it’s me. I’m in my twilight years, so I’m crepuscular. I thought of a few other words that might describe me in my twilight years: Shadowy, dim, fading, ancient, departing, lingering, hushed, closing, hazy, faint and ah, yes, magical.
