This morning one of the articles I read was about eating meals with your kids. I have been aware of these benefits for years. It is something my family has always done and I never really thought about. Granted it does get harder as they grow ... Read more
Moving On
Monday, September 21, 2020      3 comments

A few weeks ago my daughter came to me saying her dad is selling his place and moving into a home in the country with his girlfriend. Okay, fine, great for him. My daughter is so excited. As a good mom, I am doing my best to be excited for he... Read more

Every fall for the past few years my city has done Parks Passport. Basically it is a walking program to encourage people to walk in the parks and on the trails. For approximately 4 weeks the city Parks and Rec Dept posts signs in parks and on ... Read more
Dogs on the Run
Saturday, September 19, 2020      6 comments

Last week I went with my dad to pick up their dogs from the groomer. The one slipped her collar and got away from us. We chased her for over an hour before we finally caught her. It took my dad, myself, the groomer (when she could), another ... Read more

One does not realize how much they depend on the internet until it is down. I use it to check the weather, listen to my favorite radio station, check Facebook, check e-mail, even watch tv (since we use streaming services), and do my Sparkpeople... Read more
Job Hunting
Thursday, September 17, 2020      6 comments

Let's be real, job hunting stresses me out. I thought I was secure in my job when Covid hit. I mean, I worked in medical records and people were always seeing the providers or going into the hospital. Something in my gut told me otherwise... Read more

I belong to the Concerned Citizens Facebook page for my town. Monday night the utility company posted a message they received from a resident stating someone was walking around homes saying "Reading Meters" and looking in windows. The man was ... Read more
Must Be a Great Morning
Tuesday, September 15, 2020      4 comments

Today must be a great morning to be out and about. My dog and I walk early. The sun isn't up yet early. Normally we don't see too many people out. Yesterday we only saw our 1 normal guy walking. This morning, all sorts of people were out. ... Read more
This Covid Life
Monday, September 14, 2020      10 comments

I must say this Covid life is getting old. Don't get me wrong, I am not holed up at home. I do go out and meet friends for a meal or drink. We pick local places as to support them. Typically we sit out on the patio as well. I do get out and ... Read more
Holy Fog, Batman
Sunday, September 13, 2020      4 comments

The wives tale is that 90 days from a dense fog will be a big snow storm. From what I woke up to, we should have a white Christmas then. Sure this is just a saying. Years ago and months into my marriage, we were living in Sioux Falls, SD when... Read more
As Old As You Feel
Saturday, September 12, 2020      3 comments

I am stealing this idea from another Spark member. She was talking about an old lady and her secret to a long life. The old lady said, "Never tell anyone your real age and don't talk about your aches/pains." I believe there is some truth behi... Read more

Hard to believe it was 19 years ago today our world changed. I don't think any of us will forget where we were and what happened that day. I was substitute teaching in a 1st grade classroom that morning. I remember the principal coming by and... Read more
More Rain?
Thursday, September 10, 2020      5 comments

Mother Nature had a concussion and forgot what season it actually is I believe. The last 2 days have been nice all day slow soaker type rains. I got out for a walk early Tues. morning. Yesterday my dog and I were able to sneak out about 6:00p... Read more
Lazy Bones
Wednesday, September 09, 2020      3 comments

It is my daughter's remote learning day for school today. It was cool and wet when I took the dogs out at 5:30 when they woke me. It just didn't look nice for walking at all. I hadn't slept well the 2nd half of the night. So, I decided to be... Read more
Street Safety
Tuesday, September 08, 2020      6 comments

Maybe I am just anal about things. It could be just simply that we all think differently. It amazes me how people are when out walking (or biking). Again all my thoughts and opinions. We all have our own and that is great. Now that my ... Read more
