A Nice Day Outdoors
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
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
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
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
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

I'm so happy this morning after opening my Facebook feed and seeing the news from last night's American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards. The winner is Susie, a remarkable dog with an amazing story. Susie was the winner in the th... Read more
Enjoying the Day
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
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
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
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
Can't believe I did this!
Does this look familiar? Nope, it is not another picture from my surgery in February, even though it looks almost the same. My son and I were working on some home renovat... Read more
A Day Best Forgotten
I'm glad July 19th has come to an end and July 20th has finally arrived. It was a tough day. It was one year to the day when my husband passed away and I lost my best friend in the world.
Tommy used to love to post pictures of beautiful... Read more
A few more pics from vacation
I've been home from vacation for a week and I'm just beginning to get back into some sort of routine. For starters, the morning after we got home my laptop messed up after my virus protection ran an update. It was a few days before Jeremy (my ... Read more
San Juan River Trip
I know this is late, but the last eight days have been non-stop and so much fun. I'll get to it all eventually, but for now I'll start where I left off.
On June 23rd, we arrived at the Recapture Lodge in Bluff, Utah to prepare for our laun... Read more
