Daisy and I just got in from playing ropes. It's been a sunny, cooler day with nominal humidity. Right now it's absolutely perfect. We're nearing dusk - it's coming so much earlier these days. Last night I was gone fro 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. so Da... Read more

Today has proven to be a much better day than yesterday and I'm very happy about that. Yesterday strained my patience muscle! I realize that I have so many things to be grateful and also that there are people out there who have real problems -... Read more

Daisy and I started our day early, I was up by 6 a.m. this morning. The last 3 days has been perfect weather for early morning walking, it's so fresh and cool and NOT humid. We've pushed our walks to just over 2 miles - an increase from our st... Read more
Goodbye to August

I can't say that I'm unhappy to see August go. It's been hot and humid and rainy. But the heavens are smiling on us today because the last day of August is going to be a perfect day. The sun is shining, the humidity is way down and the temper... Read more
A good day

I just wanted to write down somewhere that I had a really good day today. It was nothing special, I did nothing out of the ordinary, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I spent some time reading this morning, one of my goals is to read at least ... Read more
MIssed our walk this morning
Saturday, August 27, 2016      5 comments

Little Daisy is a bit disappointed in her mom - we did not take our walk this morning. I believe my body has been fighting off a cold, at least that's how I've been feeling. Not really sick; just a bit congested with a scratchy throat and an o... Read more
What a big job it was

It's getting fall-like in Minnesota and I am feeling the tug to start putting away the outside things and start preparing the inside for the long winter. The Minnesota State Fair started today and that's always the beginning of this change in m... Read more

Yesterday was Colin's Book Launch event at a cute little bookstore called 'Eat My Words Bookstore'. It was full of used books of every genre you could want. Lauriellen brought her childhood friend (from 3rd grade) Shannon who practically lived... Read more
Routine

It seems being on vacation for 8 days has completely disrupted my routine and I'm having a hard time getting it back. Since we've been home I have gotten out each morning for my walk with Daisy. Today was the first day that I actually FELT lik... Read more

We had a family day on Thursday. Rachelle fixed a nice picnic lunch. We started with a visit to a peach orchard. Even Daisy got to go inside and check things out - she was quite a hit with several people asking "what kind of dog is she". Dai... Read more

We are about 2/3's of the way home. The drive home has been so much easier than the drive there. We have only encountered one area of road construction and one small accident. The hotel we are in is not up to my quality and I will not stay he... Read more
Wacky Wednesday
Thursday, August 11, 2016      4 comments

This has certainly been a challenging trip. Again no internet in the morning and our second room had a bathtub that filled up with water while taking a shower - and I take a pretty short shower. There must have had 4" of water I was standing i... Read more

We have finally arrived in Roanoke, VA. That's the good news. We left our hotel on Monday morning at 6:10 a.m. and didn't arrive at our next hotel until 11:44 p.m. - it was a very long day's drive. What should have been about 14 hours of driv... Read more
