We stopped for a couple of hours in Solvang, which is a small town with a Danish 'theme' - it's really cute and draws tons of tourists. We met one couple from Norway who said they'd been told by friends back home that visiting Solvang was a 'mus... Read more

One of those days
Thursday, July 21, 2011      7 comments

We all have them - waking up feeling crappy or finding road construction everywhere we want to drive or whatever. I had a bunch of changes today and while none was horrible, it's left me a little more tired than usual. I did wake up feeling... Read more

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      9 comments

I started a Virtual Walk Across America on 7/1/11 and I'm finding it really fun but the best part is that it's motivating me to walk more than I might have done otherwise. Each day, I wear my pedometer and it keeps track of my steps, miles, etc ... Read more

I have been asked to post some pictures from my veggie garden and I'm super-happy to share them. I love going out to my garden to 'pick a meal' - or at least to get PART of a meal - it's not varied enough to make an entire meal and I don't have ... Read more
Rest Days and a Goodbye!
Thursday, July 14, 2011      6 comments

I am firm believer in the thought that we all need to take a 'rest day' now and then to give our bodies a break! Some people disagree, thinking it's better to keep pounding it every day but I think my body is trying to tell me something if I fee... Read more
