Thoughts on the Baseball

Baseball is one of my favorite sports, but I don’t follow it like I do football, my most favorite sport. I only watch the baseball playoffs and World Series. This year, the Kansas City Royals, the family’s favorite baseball team, made it to the World Series. Hubby’s uncle and his family lived in Kansas City […]

Thoughts on the Lewis and Clark

Looking back at all of our travels in 2014, I realize that we followed a lot of the route that the Corps of Discovery—a.k.a., the Lewis and Clark expedition—traveled from 1805 to 1806. The Corps of Discovery left St. Louis in 1804, made their way up the Missouri River to a Mandan village on the […]

Thoughts on the Letters

Just before we left home for our summer sojourn, I packed up everything in my sewing room so our house sitters would have that closet to use. Now that we are back in our home, I’m moving everything back into my sewing room. I’m sorting through stuff and getting rid of things I no longer […]

Thoughts on the Mothers-In-Law

We’ve been home a week and I’m still loving it. Last weekend we helped with the Weiser River Trail October Trek which is a 2-day, 84-mile bicycling event. Hubby had been looking forward to riding the event for weeks, but the day before he hurt his knee. The doctor told him no biking for several […]

Thoughts on the End of Summer

Hubby and I completed the 2014 Summer Sojourn and are now back at home. Being gone from home for 4 months, summer passed in a whirlwind for Hubby and me. I’m glad I kept a journal of our travels because otherwise, I might forget something. We saw so many places that it’s almost a blur. […]

Thoughts on Fall

I must be odd. I don’t like fall and I don’t like seeing the leaves change color. Most people love fall with all the colors. I’m one of the few that don’t. The multicolored trees are pretty in a way, but yellow and gold leaves are the portent to winter and I really don’t like […]

Thoughts on Stuff

Stuff. We all have it. Housefulls of it. Some of it has meaning. Some of it has purpose. Some we’ve forgotten is there. I’m at a point in life that my friends and I are dealing with aging parents. Along with that comes dealing with their stuff. A lifetime of accumulated stuff. What do you […]

Thoughts on Small Towns

I love small towns. That might seem funny coming from someone who lives in the largest metroplex in Idaho (over half a million), but Boise is the exception. Boise has a small town feel to it and I really like it there, but it’s not as peaceful as a small town. I’ve lived in small […]
