Hubby and I headed to Lincoln to have dinner with our daughter and her boyfriend. It started out as a trip to Lincoln to pick up a pair of boots that I put on hold at the Dillard's store down there. They are a (surprise) gift for me from hubby... Read more

Today I decided to combine my exercise with my shopping trip and I took a walk around the entire block that one of the local shopping centers sits on. I wanted to check for something specific at Oakview Mall here in town and I also wanted... Read more

Saturday ended up being about 6 hours in the car but we had a great time visiting Ed's Mom and a couple of the in-laws that live back there. It was fun just with Ed, Sarah and I, too. We don't usually get to sit down and visit with Sarah that ... Read more

We had a little reprieve from cool and damp today to get a sunny and nearly 60 degree (F) day. I spent most of the day flitting between different chores . . . dishes, laundry, cleaning, tree trimming and Christmas shopping online. All of it wa... Read more

I got out for a 3 miles run/walk today. It felt SO good to have a fairly decent day, weather-wise, when I got up (43 degrees!!!) and it was early enough that I'd have enough sunlight to get outdoors. I went to one of the local trails and walke... Read more

Tingling . . . side effect of too little sleep, maybe??

Sunday, November 23, 2014      8 comments

I'm trying to recover from a lack of sleep and it's really hard to get the poor body to bounce right back for some reason. Could be that I'm in my mid-50's?? I know they say that you can't "catch up" on missed sleep but I can usually sleep a l... Read more

So, we've had a day-long snow (Saturday) that only amounted to about 1 inch of snow. I got out last night for a walk after dark with Sarah's puppy. We walked a little over 3/4 of a mile. He enjoyed the walk in the snow - seeing that he's a 3 ... Read more

Congratulations to the SF Giants on their World Series win! It's exciting that two Wild Card winners made it to the end. It was great seeing Kansas City Royals get to the series and do so well. We wish it could have been a win for them but ho... Read more
