Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge

I am not adventurous by nature, so it was truly a challenge to think of photos for this week's Photo Challenge.  I like to know where I'm going, how I will get there, and what could happen when I arrive.  I over pack making sure I have contingencies covered.  My husband, however, likes getting in … Continue reading Summer Adventure: Photo Challenge

The Honor System is Alive and Well, In Vermont

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, my husband and I were in Vermont for a few days.  For the ride home we decided that instead of the interstate we'd travel some back roads south to get home.  We left the hotel at about 9:30 and had not yet eaten breakfast, figuring we would find some … Continue reading The Honor System is Alive and Well, In Vermont

Lovely Lakeside Views

When I was working in Vermont I went to several conferences at the Lake Morey Resort.  I never would have known about it otherwise. When I decided that the husband and I needed a getaway that would feel like a getaway, this is where I decided to take us.  I kept it a secret for quite … Continue reading Lovely Lakeside Views

Anywhere Door, I’ll Take That, Please

Pick Your Gadget: Your local electronics store has just started selling time machines, anywhere doors, and invisibility helmets. You can only afford one. Which of these do you buy, and why? Anywhere door--in the hope that it's also is an anytime door!  And by any time I mean, when I feel like it I could … Continue reading Anywhere Door, I’ll Take That, Please

Vermont Reflections

There are many days that I miss living in Vermont.  The calm, quiet, clean feeling of the fresh air and uncluttered lifestyle.  When I am most desperate to feel close to my Vermont "home" I take a look at pictures my friend "Bud" puts on his Facebook page.  To participate in this week's Photo Challenge I'm sharing a … Continue reading Vermont Reflections

Happy Wanderer (or not)

  What’s your travel style? Are you itinerary and schedule driven, needing to have every step mapped out in advance or are you content to arrive without a plan and let happenstance be your guide? I'm a confirmed homebody.  I've never been bitten by the travel bug the way others have, and one of my … Continue reading Happy Wanderer (or not)

The Hangover

Every Sunday or Monday morning I read on Facebook about many of my "friends" who are suffering from a hangover.  It really shouldn't surprise me all that much; although frankly, it gets me a little sad.  Now, I will be the first to admit to a dozen or so mornings when the drinking from the … Continue reading The Hangover

All The Single Ladies

When I was single, I never really liked the idea of Valentine's Day.  I did find ways to make it fun most of the time.  In my 20's I was teaching, so I'd make treats for the kids in my classroom.   In my 30's, my sister Judy and I (both single at the time) would … Continue reading All The Single Ladies

Object Lesson (Weekly Photo Challenge)

I was intrigued by the subject of the Weekly Photo Challenge:  Object.  My husband and I, and our cats, enjoy having bird feeders and bird houses in our yard.  We try to keep track of the different feathered fancies that make a stop for something to eat or a bit of shelter. This picture, taken … Continue reading Object Lesson (Weekly Photo Challenge)

Beyond the Pale: Well Yeah, But Never Again!

I've tried new things in my lifetime, really I have.  I'll admit that recently I haven't pushed myself too much Beyond the Pale (today's Daily Prompt), but there are things I've tried, completely out of my comfort zone, that I would do again and things I definitely will NOT do again.  Case in point:  A … Continue reading Beyond the Pale: Well Yeah, But Never Again!
