Random thoughts while kayaking

September 16, 2020

Kayaking is my “happy place” these days. When we are out on the water, life seems almost normal. We were out the other day and even though it was a cloudy, cool day, it was still good. There was some sunshine in the distance so I was going to write a deep, serious blog post […]

What do you look forward to?

September 2, 2020

These days, it really is the little things that mean the most. I try to find something to look forward to every day. These days it is: 1. My morning coffee. I just have one mug, with real cream. It is such a treat and looking forward to this makes it easier to get up […]

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 […]

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 […]

Time to mix it up

May 6, 2020

No, I am not talking about an early cocktail hour. Although these days this sounds pretty good! We all are going a bit stir crazy with our “shelter at home.” The only time I get out of the house is for my walks and to go food shopping. The other day I went out for […]

Okay, so we’re all hunkered down in our living spaces, probably going a bit stir crazy. After all, how many YouTube videos can one watch in a day? Here is some light reading to brighten your day. 1. The shopping frenzy. No, I’m not going to bemoan the scarcity of toilet paper. We’ve heard enough […]

What do you need?

February 5, 2020

Talk about a big question. Many times, we are very good at disliking and avoiding the very things we need most. Be it public speaking, eating healthy or something else. I got to thinking about this when I was doing some exercise. On a very simple level, I need to do more stretching. I do […]

What do you take for granted?

Comments Off on What do you take for granted?

I try to live a life of gratitude, but sometimes things get away from me. I notice that I take things for granted and only realize it when those things are taken from me. My ongoing experience with foot pain has served as a reminder. Maybe this time, I will learn my lesson. I try […]

How the summer was spent

August 21, 2019

Ah, summertime. Long sun-filled days, the desire to be outdoors all the time and the slower pace. I love kayaking more than anything (well, maybe not more than Peeps or chipmunks). So we’ve spent all our spare time out on the water. When I’m out there, all my problems disappear. It’s like a mini-vacation. Here […]

The view from a window

I just love the long, lazy days of summer. I find myself slowing down, not just because of the heat, but because everything just seems so much more relaxed now. I am happy that we get to eat our meals in the daylight. Our family room/eating area is my favorite room in the house (aside […]
