Forced inactivity – ack!

November 30, 2016


As my December 2 foot surgery looms, I am getting prepared for a long period of forced inactivity. As my doctor likes to say, “For the next several weeks, you will be living in a triangle consisting of the sofa, the bathroom and your bed.” For someone who loves to exercise for at least an […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 23, 2016


No Thanksgiving post would be complete without a picture of Thanksgiving chipmunks! 🙂 I am going to attempt to bake two pumpkin pies this year. The last time I attempted to bake pies, I managed to almost set the stove on fire. And this was with my dear mother supervising. I’m on my own this […]

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 […]
