How lucky I have been
To have a life of abundance.
Not perfect, by any means,
Nor free of many bumps
In the road.

I Felt Like I Had (legally) Stolen the Groceries
That's what the cashier and I agreed it felt like as I visited the newly-opened store around the corner (okay, a mile or so away). This is a literal example of one door closing and another opening. I'd recently blogged about the agony of my fa... Read more

What Indoor Temperature Sends you To Thermostat to Turn Heat On? (just curious)
Last week, it was 82 degrees in here, and this morning it's 66! I thought that was cold until I took out the garbage just now and saw my breath in the air - 51 degrees. So, returning indoors, 66 feels comfie. (smiling) Yes, Nat, it's relative... Read more
