The site maintenance last night messed me up because I didn't have access all day and had planned to catch up when we got home from our quick trip to Nevada - but by that time, the site was down. Today has been a 'long day' and I'll blog about i... Read more

Ordinary Day
Tuesday, November 09, 2010      2 comments

It's been one of those 'ordinary days' - nothing too special, nothing particularly bad or exciting or scary or fabulous - just a day of doing laundry, washing dishes and 'ordinary stuff' - I'm still nursing my knee so did not go for a hike, did ... Read more

It's been a fairly ordinary Monday but I seem to have twisted my knee on yesterday's hike and it's been hurting - I've iced it, put analgesic patches on it and keeping it elevated in hopes it will recover quickly. I had planned to start a new 24... Read more

Walk, workout, walk and walk
Wednesday, November 03, 2010      2 comments

Sounds like a boring life but it's actually pretty fun - I took the dogs out last night for a nice walk in an area not-too-far from our house that's like a rural area in the middle of the city. It's called Orange Park Acres and it's a mixture of... Read more
