In Blue Ridge Mountains and other fun
Thursday, November 02, 2017      12 comments

We drove to near Ashville, NC to visit a distant relative we hadn't seen in 30+ years. DH was concerned as she's getting "up" there, widowed for 6 years and considering moving further away. She's in great shape, feisty and knows exactly what ... Read more
What was I thinking?

Call me a glutton for punishment. I went to my retiree lunch, enjoyed the moment(s), the freedom and the atmosphere of collaboration and cooperation of professional people. It was brought to my attention that a position was opening that wou... Read more

We're heading out, this time driving, to visit a relative we haven't seen in years. Lucky for us the entire trip "must" be done while driving through Shenandoah National Park then along the Blue Ridge Parkway! Oh, gosh, it's fall and the leaves ... Read more

I go quite a few steps in yesterday when I took DD2 and SIL2 to visit New Hope, PA. He's been wanting to see more of our country than just my backyard (the oasis, as he calls it) so we took the short drive west. I forgot how quickly my bustling ... Read more
Home repair days and and other stuff.

I'm on hands and knees in the warm sun forcing asphalt repair sand in the cracks on my driveway that are allowing rain water to get underneath and cause it to shift with ice. Not comfortable but necessary. Those knees were examined Tuesday and... Read more

My DH turns 66 today! It's even a more precious day as most of us thought he wouldn't be here for it. So much so that on his last visit to the specialist, the doctor announced he though DH would be capable of gracing the planet for another 10 ... Read more
Shadowing the "Beckers"
Tuesday, October 17, 2017      10 comments

I have the Beck "pink" but stall every time I read it. One day I'll analyze why that happens. Something is off-putting to me. Maybe it's the work involved and I'm lazy or rebellious. In the meantime I'm riding on the thoughtfulness and thought... Read more
A taste of my own medicine.

DH has been listening to my life through Spark, seen some blogs and even met our nice Sparker STRONGDAWG and her spouse. He doesn't quite get the camaraderie but he evidently has paid attention to other things. AND, he has a get-back-at-you st... Read more
I have no problem with my image, just my initiative to lose the weight.

Perhaps this is why I don't jump all over the weight loss band wagon even though I should. emoticon I have a ... Read more

There was so much we did and saw. Our last stay was along Athabasca river. I walked along for quite a distance, realizing I needed to yell "Hey, bear" as I was walking quietly, good and alone! Oops. ... Read more

This must be post-vacation letdown. I lost a firm 2 pounds on my trip; hooray! I practiced good eating. Since I've been home it's been laundry, shopping, cooking and major cleaning. I am scrubbing the OUTSIDE of the house and the windows. Lucky ... Read more
Enjoyed some time way. Blog 1
Friday, October 06, 2017      14 comments

We took a bus tour of the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park. I figured If I didn't drive, taking care of DH might be easier, and it was. We still had some challenges but he managed to have a good time, keep up with the pack and entertai... Read more
