Healthy, wealthy, and wise

As we get ready to celebrate the arrival of the new year, I’m reflecting on experiences. Healthy. If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you know that just a bit over 10 months ago I decided to try something new. I gave up eating animal products\byproducts – no meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, eggs, etc. Wow…

🎶 Time passes by, people get old 🎶

If we were still living in our camper we’d be very busy packing up getting ready to head South. There was always a bit of excitement preceding the travels. Instead, we are trying to figure out how it’s possible that on this date two years ago we had College Hunks help us move all our…

🥳 Happy Anniversary 🥳

Oops, I missed it! April 2nd was the 2 year anniversary of this blog. I don’t have a lot of readers, but I sure have enjoyed writing. One of the reasons I started this blog was to help me get over the intense fear I have of other people reading the thoughts I put down…

Never say never!

So I did a thing. A huge life changing thing. A thing I NEVER ever thought I would do! I’m kind of embarrassed to say that I’m pretty sure I’ve said something along the lines of totally not understanding how anyone would/could do this thing many times in my life. But now? Now I totally…

And so it goes…

January brought a blizzard, then February added to the fun with a bit of sleet and ice yesterday. And the silly groundhog saw its shadow, so supposedly 6 more weeks of Winter. I suspect Spring will show up eventually, but for now I’m kind of enjoying the long pants, turtlenecks, sweatshirts, and sweaters. My old…

Farewell 2021!

2021 began with COVID restrictions still in place, bursitis in my right hip causing pain and keeping me from doing all I wished to do, the (not so surprising) diagnosis of COPD, Dave’s ankle causing pain again, and both of us looking to get a bit healthier. We are ending 2021 with some COVID restrictions…

Happiness is…

What fun to reconnect with people from my youth! End of September Dave and I spent a long weekend in Babylon, NY and had a blast at my 45th High School Reunion. We so enjoyed our time reconnecting with old friends! I don’t know about you, but a huge part of my memories is food!!…

For everything there is a season

It’s been almost 4 months since I last wrote. Back then we were quite content being at Camp Westwood once again. Then on August 8th we received news that the YMCA Board of Directors had voted to discontinue seasonal camping and close its seasonal campground at the end of the season – October 15th. Very…

The joys and challenges of camp life

Joy: We’ve been back at Camp Westwood for about a month now and it’s been nice spending so much time outside again. We’ve enjoyed sunny days at the lake – the water is just barely near swimmable temperature… for us old folks, anyway. The kids have been swimming for weeks now. Challenge: The mice continue…

EEK!

Well, evidently Rhode Island mice are quite the party animals! We stored our camper in Georgia for 5 months and had no issues. We stored our camper in our campsite at Camp Westwood over the winter and those mice sure had fun!! YIKES – what a mess! Evidently, all the preventative measures we took (and…
