Monday, August 07, 2017      19 comments

We arrived in Stavanger, Norway late Saturday. Stavanger is known most for it's oil, in fact they have an Oil Museum here. Colin and I weren't interested in seeing that but apparently it's quite a large industry in present day. On Sunday ... Read more
Norway Day 3, a travel day
Sunday, August 06, 2017      21 comments

On Friday evening Colin and I walked down to the train station to make sure we knew where we had to go in the morning. We even talked to the station agents. We were all set. Neither of us slept very well because we knew we had to get up a... Read more
Norway, Oslo Day 2
Friday, August 04, 2017      19 comments

We had a bit slower day today - neither of us woke up until almost 9 a.m. Our first stop today was the Viking Museum. Was that ever interesting. First of all, those ships were HUGE, and were built in the 800's without any kind of power tools ... Read more
Norway, Day 1
Thursday, August 03, 2017      25 comments

Well, after couple of fairly rocky travel days and a near overnight in Paris (which sounds wonderful but had already been awake nearly 24 hours by that time and Paris just didn't work for me), we arrived in Oslo at 6:00 p.m. yesterday. By then ... Read more

We took little Faith to her other Grandparents home on Friday morning. I was sorry to say good-bye. We had a lot of fun while she stayed with us but mostly it was just really nice to get to know her better. She will be going into 6th grade th... Read more

I have been challenged today by BARBARA73 to write about Gratitude. I think often about gratitude and keep a gratitude journal. There are the obvious things that I am grateful for every day: my children, children-in-law and grandchildren, my ... Read more
Shopping
Saturday, July 22, 2017      16 comments

One of my least favorite activities is shopping. I know, I'm a woman and I should love to shop - but I don't. My dear husband, on the other hand, is the shopper. He looks at everything. When we're in the grocery store my objective is to buy ... Read more
Getting Excited
Wednesday, July 19, 2017      14 comments

In exactly t weeks I will be in Norway. I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed about the trip - it is such a long time in an airplane and I really don't like that. Plus I find it's important for me to get up and walk around quite often to keep my... Read more
Daisy, my little motivator
Sunday, July 16, 2017      20 comments

This morning on our walk I was thinking about the question that comes up soften 'What motivates you to loose weight and live a healthier lifestyle?' Well, I know the answer to that question should be to live a long life for my kids/grandkids/hu... Read more
Changes

On our walk this morning the David Bowie song 'Changes', which got me to thinking about all the changes in my life. Some changes have been easy and just happen naturally. That led me to think about my foot surgery a couple years ago. Th... Read more

I was having a great day yesterday. At noon I took a Melt Yoga class at Lifetime Fitness, the gym I was able to join for free because my Medicare supplemental insurance covers the membership. They have several free classes to choose from. I e... Read more
Daisy, Annie and ME
Friday, July 07, 2017      14 comments

What an exciting morning. Annie came in to wake me up just before 6 a.m. Apparently her parents get up early but my alarm is set for 6 so I was ready to get up. Daisy decided she'd better see what was going on and came in as well. No lying a... Read more

A very funny coincidence this morning. I opened up Facebook and they had posted this memory I shared of Daisy and Annie together on July 6, 2014. ... Read more
Families can be puzzling sometimes
Monday, July 03, 2017      19 comments

Not mine - I understand them. But DH's family is pretty darn difficult for me to understand. They have never liked me, apparently they preferred his ex-wife, the one who used his only child as a bargaining tool after their divorce. I me... Read more
