When Dorothy said, "there's no place like home" she was really on to something. We've actually been home since Wednesday afternoon. We left 2 days early. The days were so very enjoyable but once we got back to the "cottage" we were so uncomfo... Read more

Yesterday marked the 3 month anniversary of my knee replacement surgery - and I was out hiking for the first time in more years than I can remember. In fact, it's been so long since I've laced up my hiking boots that it took awhile to get the j... Read more

Our morning routine is about the same on vacation as it is at home. Coffee, journal, a bit of reading, showers and breakfast. Daisy and I haven't been walking in the morning because we are doing our walks once we get out for the day. Beca... Read more

I didn't sleep too well last night - storms rolled through around midnight and it wasn't just the pitter patter of rain on the rooftop. These were thunder and lightening, high winds kind of storms. After Sunday's storms, I just couldn't settle... Read more

I love mornings. My routine works well for me. My fitbit alarm vibrates at 6:20 a.m. I am usually away and it is so much nicer to be roused by a gentle vibration rather than the horrible sounds an alarm clock makes. My DH used to set his ala... Read more

At least that's what I thought as Daisy and I took our walk this morning. We got out just after 7 a.m. The plan was to walk, come home and do my yoga and leg exercises, and then get ready for church. Well, plans do change, don't they. In... Read more
