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

Today is the 4th morning I've gotten up and gone out for my walk with Daisy and today I was out there by 7:23 a.m. It was beautiful out this morning - for all the lousy weather we had during May, so far June has been gorgeous! So no chair ... Read more

I have come to love Mondays - there is such structure to the weekdays. Having worked most of my life in regular 8 - 5 office jobs, weekends became my easy days. And although I have been retired now for 8 years, I still let weekends take care o... Read more

Daisy and I just got back from our walk. We decided to go early because the clouds are blowing in and we just might get some rain by this afternoon - after all, we can't have enough rain this Month. We have already exceeded the previous record... Read more

Oh, I remember now - that's called the Sun! It has been missing from my world for about a week now, and we've had rain almost every day beginning last Monday. Our temps have been hovering in the mid 40's and the wind has been so strong that th... Read more

We are having yet another dreary, gloomy day - the kind of day that makes you want to just get back into bed and wait for the sunshine. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing the sun anytime soon. So we make the best of it. T... Read more
