Island Senior is a reg­u­lar col­umn on the San Juan Update writ­ten by Peg­gy Sue McRae…

The Mullis Cen­ter Annu­al Hol­i­day Arti­san Craft Fair starts this Fri­day, Novem­ber 16, from 4 — 7 pm and con­tin­ues Sat­ur­day from 10 am — 4 pm.  I’m par­tic­i­pat­ing this year, which means I have a lot of cards to fold.  A flat sur­face to fold cards on can be hard to find some­times at my house so I decid­ed to join Anna Cof­felt at the Mullis Cen­ter for “Hygge Fri­day” last week.

Hygge, is a Dan­ish tra­di­tion pro­nounced (Hoo-ga). It means to set a relaxed mood of cozi­ness, com­fort and con­vivi­al­i­ty. Hygge Fri­days at the Mullis Cen­ter are offered on Fri­days from 1 to 3 pm as a time to bring your own project or find one at the Mullis Cen­ter and enjoy a relaxed time vis­it­ing over projects or watch­ing a movie in the library.  Anna and I each had fold­ing projects. I had my cards and Anna was fold­ing orga­mi birds, a skill she says she is will­ing to teach. We set­tled com­fort­ably at a table and lost our­selves in con­ver­sa­tion while fold­ing paper stop­ping only for jas­mine tea and Paul Newman’s Gin­ger Cook­ies. On Hygge Fri­day the Mullis Cen­ter pro­vides snacks.

That was last week. The Hol­i­day Fair begins today, Fri­day after­noon, and I still have a few cards to fold. This year’s Fair looks to have a full spec­trum of local arts and crafts plus a vari­ety of foods. As a wel­come addi­tion this year the High School will be sell­ing wreaths and tak­ing orders for Thanks­giv­ing pies. Order a pump­kin or pecan pie for your Thanks­giv­ing din­ner and all the pro­ceeds will go to FHHS Grad Night 2019. See you there!
