This and that on a Sunday Morning
Sunday, May 27, 2018      13 comments

I do love Sundays - they seem like such peaceful days to me. Daisy and I got out extra early this morning because it's going to be a very hot and steamy Sunday today. The air was cool this morning but the humidity must have been high because I... Read more
Last week of the 5% Spring Challenge
Saturday, May 26, 2018      11 comments

It's hard for me to believe that we've gone through 7 weeks already - with only one more to go. This has been a good challenge for me. I doubt I'll make my 5% but right now I'm at just better than 3% lost as well as a couple of inches. My clo... Read more
Iced Tea
Friday, May 18, 2018      19 comments

I would imagine many of you are already avid ice tea drinkers. I am not - never have been. For years and years I have gone out to lunch and my friends order all varieties of iced tea - but not me. Water please! Or if it's a very special day ... Read more
Here she is with her new trim
Thursday, April 26, 2018      18 comments

My office window looks out directly to the Big Tree, I can see all of her... well, all of the width of her. She reaches way higher toward the sky than my window allows. She looks a bit sparse, the trim has certainly changed her appearance. B... Read more
The Miracle and the Big Tree
Wednesday, April 25, 2018      18 comments

We have a very large Maple tree in the center of our back yard. She had a sister tree when we first bought the property but unfortunately she succumbed to the Straight Line Winds of July 3, 1983. She was further back on our property so luckily... Read more
The Best

Daisy and I got out for our walk early this morning - before 7 am. It was so beautiful outside. The birds were singing, the ducks and geese flying overhead, the squirrels scampering around the underbrush rustling those leaves that are finally ... Read more

Digging out
Monday, April 16, 2018      12 comments

We hunkered down yesterday - pretty much all day. Little Daisy ventured out only 4 times all day long and she wasn't too happy about it. According to the news station this morning, the Twin Cities has just experienced the biggest April snowfal... Read more

Like so many others, we have experienced blizzard-like conditions this weekend. They were predicting 4 - 8 inches of new snow - as of this morning I'm pretty sure we have about 16, and it's still snowing. This morning I heard this is the 3rd s... Read more
The Robins are back

I've heard the lovely song of the Robins the past few mornings when I am outside with Daisy just after 6 a.m., but I hadn't yet seen one until today. ... Read more
Quiet has returned
Monday, April 02, 2018      16 comments

Ah, the lovely quiet mornings have returned to me and I am relishing in it today. Just for today. This past week has been filled with fun and family and I have loved it, as much as I am loving today because I have nothing planned except an eve... Read more

On Wednesday evenings I attend a Women's Bible Study, I've been a part of this group for about 3 years now. We sit in small groups of 6 - 8 women and for the last several studies I've been with the same group of wonderful women and have become ... Read more
Progress is actually happening
Monday, March 19, 2018      17 comments

This morning I was letting some negative feelings creep into my head. Yesterday I pretty much took the entire day off. Yesterday was a tax day and I was focused - time just flew by. You see, I am the tax man for my family. My father was an a... Read more
One year on Tuesday
Friday, March 16, 2018      17 comments

Today I saw my orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Christine Pui, for my one year check up after my knee replacement surgery. First of all, I can't believe it's been a whole year. Second, I can't believe I can do so many things I hadn't been able to do fo... Read more
Getting back on the horse
Thursday, March 15, 2018      11 comments

Not a real horse - but I sure would love that! This winter has been harder than usual. More snow, more cold weather, more wind. But I see a glimmer of spring trying to arrive. This weekend we might see our first 50 degree days - it's a bit l... Read more
