I haven't been blogging for awhile. Nothing very interesting has been going on around here. Daisy and I have been taking our walks every morning - at least until this week. On Monday morning I went to Urgent Care because I knew, without quest... Read more

Life on a highway can be challenging at times, then add in neighbors..... Today, at least right now, I feel like the Grinch who stole September. This morning on my walk with Daisy I was thinking about how much I love the month of September... Read more

Today was a rather quiet day for me. Coli and I drove to Preikestolen, also known as Pulpit Rock. It's about a 1 1/2 hour hike up and I knew that was a bit out of my abilities. So I walked a bit with Colin, then headed back down to wait at th... Read more

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

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

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
