Plans Gone Awry, Part 2

Hubby is back home with me. Once again, our well-planned journey didn’t turn out like it was supposed to, but we are getting used to making up things as we go. I flew to Rapid City after getting to the Boise airport an hour too early and almost missing the

Arrival of Fall

Fall has arrived. How do I know? It’s not the leaves starting to turn. It’s not the garden plants looking tired. It’s not the coolness in the air. My sign of fall arriving is Hubby coming home from his summer job. He’ll be pointing his cabin-on-wheels to the west and

Exercise!

With cooler temperatures coming in, I’ve been able to get out for walks and bike rides lately. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at all the other people who are emerging from their air-conditioned houses to do the same. I’m seeing some of the same people go by on my walks and

Our Anniversary

Crazy Ideas

Ever have a crazy idea and it turned out to be just that? Crazy. I seem to excel at it. My trash bin has seen many of my crazy ideas pass through, and I was happy to be rid of them. Crazy ideas don’t just happen in your head. They

Blessings of a Cloud

Triple-digit temperatures hit Boise this weekend. This kind of heat is hard on people who work outside, the elderly, and those without air-conditioning. Remember to drink lots of water. I don’t do well in heat. It all started before our kids were born. Hubby and I were hiking in Canyonlands
