Exploring and Exercising
Thursday, August 04, 2016      7 comments

I've been trying to get out a little more lately, but I have to admit that the heat and humidity is making it really hard right now. My son Cliff is so supportive and when we are both off on the same day he is usually ready to go hiking with me... Read more
One Tiny Step - BOOM!
Saturday, June 18, 2016      7 comments

I think my sisters and I have kind of become immune to pain because we are all accident prone. We truly believe we have a special "klutz gene" that we all possess. Then add in a little help from our fur babies and the probability for injury in... Read more
Back in my Kayak!
Friday, June 10, 2016      10 comments

I FINALLY got back in my kayak yesterday. The last time I had it on water was in Utah in 2014. After breaking my leg and ankle in four places right after that trip, I was off the water for the remainder of the year. Last year things just neve... Read more

A Nice Day Outdoors
Sunday, May 08, 2016      10 comments

Today was a beautiful day and I decided to get in a hike at Hanging Rock. I was hoping the rhododendrons were blooming and I wasn't disappointed. Being Mother's Day, the trails to the waterfalls looked to be crowded so I opted to hike up along... Read more
Staying Busy
Friday, May 06, 2016      7 comments

The last couple of months have been incredibly busy. I miss my sister (who passed away on March 19th) terribly, but I have my little grandson to keep me busy and who never fails to put a smile on my face. Little Archer is now 2 1/2 months old ... Read more

Ups and Down
Friday, March 04, 2016      10 comments

The last couple of weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions. February 22nd was one of the greatest days of my life, and one of the worst. First, we welcomed my first grandchild, Archer Augustus Adams, into the world weighing in at 6 lb... Read more
A Snow Day by Heinlein
Friday, January 22, 2016      13 comments

Hi. My name is Heinlein and I'm staying with my grandma right now and her little girl Sahara. See how sweet I am? They say pitbulls are vicious, but I love everyone. Now those Australian Cattle Dogs are another story. Grandma says that's wh... Read more
Finding My Way Again
Wednesday, January 06, 2016      11 comments

So here I sit having finally found my way back to Spark People. It's been so long since I logged in that I don't even remember when it was, but my last blog was in September 2014. I found myself spending way too much time on the computer, betw... Read more

So here I am, off work, it's my birthday, but I won't be spending it hiking or biking (like I usually do). Still, it's a good day. The weather is cool, my cast came off my leg last week and I am off work today. I plan to get outside on my por... Read more
Finding Light in the Darkness
Tuesday, August 19, 2014      14 comments

Nothing makes you appreciate the little things in life more than suddenly being without them. I'm determined that this is NOT going to be a whiny blog. Instead, my mood is beginning to improve a little now that I'm three weeks post-op. I'm st... Read more
Post-Op
Friday, August 08, 2014      10 comments

First, I want to thank everyone for all the nice notes, comments and goodies you've sent my way. It's been ten days since my surgery, and I had my first post-op appointment this morning. I was really pretty pumped up hoping they would let me r... Read more
Deja Vu
Saturday, July 26, 2014      8 comments

I remember now how much I started hating my bedroom, the television, sleeping . . . when I had my surgery back in February. Now I feel like I'm in an episode of the Twilight Zone as I sit here, once again, staring at a black TV screen with just... Read more
