Sunday, May 24, 2020      13 comments

I've started taking slower, longer walks. That helps my knees a bit and I still get cardio on the elevation changes. Win/win. I don't walk masked as we live in quite an agreeable neighborhood where it's easy to self distance. However as I was ... Read more

I'm remembering an incident from Sunday that surely will be brought up again and again. You know how someone says something and it just tickles your funny bone? DH was standing in the doorway, DD2 at the table, me across the room watching... Read more

Annnnnd, just like that it's Sunday again, the last day of my week, not the calendar beginning of the next. I still live in the traditional work-week mode. This has been a strange mix of isolating, working to a sweat, hibernating and visit... Read more

Mother's Day. The delayed version.
Thursday, May 14, 2020      11 comments

I did not feel like anything celebratory on Mother's Day. I sort of stamped my foot against trying to visit on a cold, windy day that held no promise of hugs and kisses. Things didn't work out for anyone except my DH who realized he had a Mother... Read more

The buck was here again in the morning yesterday when I opened the blinds!. I might assume it's one of twins that have frequented my neighbors' yard for the past three years. The first year I got them as spotted fawns, last year I got both "boys... Read more
