Gratitude

July 15, 2020

All the news is depressing, let’s face it. While one can’t crawl into a cave and be immune from all that is going on the world, there has got to be a better way. I think I’ve found it. I try to get out and walk everyday. I try to take in my surroundings and […]

God Bless America!

It is so sad and disheartening to read the news these days. America is being torn apart and sometimes I feel powerless to do anything about it. And yet, I believe that we will survive and somehow pull together as a nation. The 4th of July is a bittersweet time for me since my Dad […]

Road trip!

So Mr. Ken and I decided to venture out to Rhode Island last week. I have a cousin who recently moved there and we are very close. We felt comfortable going to visit him because he has been staying at home, leaving home only to go for walks and to the grocery store. Since this […]

Summer is here – yay!

The lazy days of summer are upon us. I got to thinking about the summer and how I love it. I am ever more appreciative this year because of everything that is going on. Here’s why I love summer: 1. Many hours of daylight. I am a morning person and I love to exercise in […]

Looking forward to the dentist – say what??????

These sure are strange and interesting times. No wonder I am exhausted all the time. I do an extensive benefit/risk analysis before I ever leave the house. Is the benefit I may get more than the risk of catching COVID? I do this even before I take my walks. I had a teeth cleaning appointment […]

Donut days

So our dear Mr. Ken managed to really hurt his shoulder, so we have to take a rest from kayaking for a while. We are both bummed since when we are out on the water, life seems almost normal. But, better to be safe than sorry. Since we are still sheltering at home, there is […]

COVID surprises

Ack, I probably shouldn’t use the word “Covid” and the word “surprise” in the same sentence. Enough with the Covid already! I don’t know about you all, but since I have sheltering in place, I’ve had a lot of time to think. As I was reflecting this weekend, I realized that I have been surprised […]

Scenes from a Memorial Day paddle

I am happy since we got to go out kayaking last weekend. It was a glorious sunny day, with perfect temperatures. Kayakying is always my “happy place,” but it is especially so this year. When I’m out on the water, life seems almost normal. There are no worries about coronavirus or anything else. We saw […]

Kayaking!

It’s that time of year again and boy am I ready for it. It’s kayaking time! We store our kayaks (all 4 of them) in the basement over the winter. It is quite the production getting them up the bulk head and into the garage. Hah, it seems to get harder and harder each year. […]

Taking up a new hobby

May 13, 2020

I have not figured out what my new hobby will be. I guess it will have to be something I can do at home, with the materials I have on hand. However, our dear Sir Angus and Sir Oliver have taken up a new hobby – painting! That is when they are not trying to […]
