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

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

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

The definition of faith is: to have complete trust or confidence in someone or something. Fred Gailey (Miracle on 34th Street - my #1 favorite Christmas Movie) told Doris Walker (single mother of Susan) "Faith is believing when common sense... Read more

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 first day on the North Shore
Tuesday, June 20, 2017      13 comments

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
Disappointed.... but making the best of things

Tom and I arrived at our Two Harbors, MN destination yesterday afternoon. Our first reaction to the cottage was good - until we started looking around. There are so many things wrong here but the biggest issue is things just aren't very clean.... Read more

Is this the new normal???

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
