I'm sure many of you have heard about 'The great Halloween blizzard of 1991'. It was really something. It started snowing in the afternoon - that wet and heavy type of snow. My boys did their trick-or-treating in the neighborhood and didn't s... Read more

What a night we had last night. The boys were so good which was an amazing surprise. Aaden (6) is always good, he listens and goes out of his way to do what we ask of him. His little brother Cole (4) is the exact opposite. He wants to do wha... Read more

We have a big job this afternoon - we are at my step-son's home with our two grandsons who are 4 and 6. Parents have gone to an event in Rochester, which is a good 150 miles from here - which means we will be getting home about 1 a.m. I haven'... Read more

My children like to give us Gift Cards for many occasions. Tom usually gets something from an Art Store or his favorite is Caribou Coffee cards. But for some reason my children seem to think I need to go out to eat more often because I usually... Read more

With the onset of fall the days are getting shorter, which means it's dark when I get up in the mornings. Because we live on a highway and I have to walk in the right-turn lane for about 25 yards (actually, I have no idea - it's not very far b... Read more

The definition of Change is to "make or become different". I have never been a fan of change, that is until I started working for a company who thought it would be fun to change things up every 6 months. It became a joke among long-term employ... Read more

I admit, I slept in a bit this morning. I was restless when I went to bed last night so I got up and tried to watch a bit of television, which was extremely boring. When did late night television become so cynical? My eyes were too tired for ... Read more

I have been going out for a walk with Daisy every morning since June 22nd - we've only missed one day of walking. But last week because it's not getting light until after 7 a.m. and I wanted to walk with my husband; we changed our walking time... Read more

We took the day off today. After all, when you're retired I guess it's okay to take a day off now and then. We drove north to Duluth, MN - which is probably my favorite city ever, at least so far. We wanted to see some fall colors and the wea... Read more

Today Daisy and I took 2 walks. We did the short loop this morning just after it go light outside. But it was such a nice day and Tom missed yesterday so we decided to go to the Elm Creek Park Reserve. It's a huge park system just a few miles... Read more

This past week I was talking with some women about what we liked best about Fall. That was easy for me because I pretty much like everything about fall: the sounds (leaves rustling), the smells (fires burning); the tastes (pumpkin spice & wint... Read more
