Things I Like


Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! And happy Thursday to the non-US peeps. One day to the weekend



I’m doing the open house Friday through Sunday, so I’ll be back then. Safe travels to everyone!

What I’m reading

Here are a few other books that I finished recently. I was reading a little more a couple months ago, but I’ve just been so tired at night lately that I haven’t wanted to read as per usual. I’ve just wanted to shut my mind off. I know everyone else gets like that on occasion. […]

Soaps and trunks

Feeling kind of busy around here. A lot of it my own making, but I just have to hang on for a few more weeks until things settle down.

I had a visit with my rescue kitty buddy Mister Boo this weekend! House/pet sitting and I got to love on him. One good thing […]

Still riding!

I’ve squeaked in a couple rides this week, including today. November 18 and riding outside.

It’s getting harder to find the time and the temps to ride. In normal riding, I work for a while, then ride, then shower and get back to work. Now, it’s way too cold to ride in the morning […]

Thoughts for Paris

I just scrubbed another post because trivial stuff doesn’t matter in the face of hatred. Please someone help me understand what goes through a person’s mind to commit atrocities? I can’t understand it. It’s just so depressing.


My thoughts are with the people of Paris, and really the world because there are truly evil […]

Weekend ramblings

Seems like weekends are never enough time. I have plans for all that needs to get done, but rarely get to it all.

I was out on Saturday for a nice bike ride. It was a little cloudy in the morning, but low 50s and enjoyable.

I had to wear more layers than […]

Hello Friday

I am glad we have finally gotten to Friday. This week went fast, though. Is that a good thing?

Looks like our warm weather is coming to an end. I biked 4 of the 5 days this week, though!

I hope to get out some on Saturday as well.

This warm weather makes me […]

Exercising my right to vote.

Yesterday was election day. I will be honest here. I hate politics. I hate talking politics, hearing about politics, all the hot air of politics – and the joke that our political system has turned into with the ridiculousness going on in a certain party. However, I do vote. When we moved to Radiance Manor […]

Pumpkin Carving Time!


We carved a little early this year since it was the only day we could all get together. This is always a good time and everyone seems to enjoy it – with the exception of the 12-year-old niece, who gets bored. Even my dad seems to really like it, which is a […]

Tuesday things

I can’t believe we are approaching November already, can you? I don’t know why I get surprised when the weather is colder because it is almost November I have gotten in some riding this week. Still going out when the temps are in the 40s. Not long rides, but 30-40 minutes. Now weather is coming […]
