Colors of a fall hike

October 19, 2016


Mr. Ken and I decided to take advantage of this glorious fall weather and went for a hike last Sunday. We hiked around the lake where we usually kayak. It didn’t hurt that our trip to the hiking place goes right by a Dairy Queen.🙂 The colors were glorious. The sun was shining; life is […]

Reflections on an early morning walk

October 12, 2016


As most of you know, I am a morning person. There is nothing I love better than to get up early and do my exercise before the my day gets started. As I look ahead to foot surgery in December, I want to get the most I can out of moving and walking while I […]

As most of you probably know, we have several chipmunks that we consider our “pets.” They come right up to us and eat out of our hands. Well one day, Mr. Ken happened to look out the front door to see if his beloved “Peep” had collected the peanut treats he had left out for […]

My weekend

August 24, 2016


So here’s a picture diary of how I spent my weekend. Enjoy!🙂 1. Gift time. Mr. Ken was in Charleston, South Carolina visiting family. He returned bearing gifts. This is just what everyone wants and needs – a bandana with cows and sport balls. Who says that Mr. Ken isn’t a romantic? FYI – this […]
