    2022-12-02 New Leaf #1🍁

    Welcome to December.  Months seem to turn over like eyes blinking.  And as they do, it always feels like an opportunity to turn over new leaves. 🍃🍁🍂 I wonder where that saying comes from but can’t get distracted from my current topic, which is about what I’ve decided to do with my life in December.  […]

    2022-09-28 Destined to Fail… 🩸

    I’m not worried about my health because I’m in great shape for my age. I’ll probably be saying that for the next 30 years. As I age, all the parts of my body that fail will likely be very appropriate for whatever age I might be when that happens. It’s been true for my eyes […]

    2022-01-08 Where’s the Bullseye This Year? 🎯

    I’ve been thinking (and thinking and thinking and thinking) about goals, plans, resolutions, a new day, a new month, a new year. I’m getting closer to zeroing in on my target(s). 🎯🎯🎯 My good friend Rebecca always picks a word at the start of the year that will shape her year and help her focus […]

    2021-12-29 In What Universe is it OK…

    … that the answer to the question “Do you like pizza?” is different than the answer to the question “Do you eat pizza?”?! The answer to the question is that in no Universe is it OK (unless you have some health reason not to). I am surrounded by people who can’t eat things. Gluten intolerance, […]

    2021-05-14 The Saltgrass Cheeseburger: 1.0 👎🏻

    This morning I was cleaning out the top shelf of my refrigerator which is typically a space reserved for leftovers. When I go out to eat I’m rarely able to consume the entire portion of whatever it is I’ve ordered. I also hate to waste food and often live off of leftovers. Many times I’ll […]

    2021-05-06 When You Find What Works, Don’t Fight It 🌳

    Thirsty Thursday again and date night tonight. A 1-2 combo that aims to satisfy.  As it often is, I think I’ve figured some things out this week and feel pretty good about my newest declarations.  No more volunteering to do interviews or lead workshops or make any public appearances where I have to speak. I’m […]

  • 2021-04-23 Arizona Adventure Day 5: Flagstaff Friday Funday

    2021-04-23 Arizona Adventure Day 5: Flagstaff Friday Funday

    Day 5. Friday. Much ado about nothing.  Much of our vacation to this point had been go-go-go. Lots of activity—tours, hiking, navigating, driving, stopping, starting, and exploring. We had nothing planned for Friday and when we got to Friday, there wasn’t anything in particular we wanted to do.  We talked about going to the Grand […]

  • 2021-04-20 Arizona Adventure Day 2: Sedona Escape

    2021-04-20 Arizona Adventure Day 2: Sedona Escape

    Day 2. Tuesday. On my “Grand” trip itinerary Tuesday was tagged as the day we would explore Sedona. In truth, all I really had planned was a late day (4pm-ish) couples massage followed by dinner at a nice restaurant. The scenery and slightly warmer temperatures are probably at the top of the list of reasons […]
