Out and About: Bangor/Rockland/Owl’s Head, Maine

Ok so, don’t look at a map to find the cities I visited on this day of my vacation.  I’ll go ahead and tell you, it will only make you wonder exactly how hard I hit my head before planning this one because it doesn’t make any sense. Owl’s Head and Rockland go better in […]

Out and About: Acadia National Park

The one and only thing I planned for a specific day, at a specific time, at a specific place on my entire 9 day vacation in Maine was to catch the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain.  I’d done a significant amount of research about things to do in Maine and this was on my top five […]

Out and About: Maine

Anything I’ve ever seen about Maine on TV, in a magazine, or on the internet made me want to go there.  Maine has everything I’ve ever loved!  Ocean and beaches, mountains and forests, more lakes and ponds than is fair for one state to have all to itself, and loads of wildlife!  So this year […]

Living at Home Again

And by “home” I mean with the parents. What did you do when you turned 40? What I did was move back in with my parents due to my house being….uninhabitable.  Then I dealt with it like an adult took off on a “bucket list” vacation to celebrate my birthday by pretending for a week that my […]

With Age Comes…. Doctors

I’ve hit that in-between age now where in certain conversations people may look at me and say, “Oh, you’re still young!” at which I smile brightly and love them unconditionally for saying so.  This is the case unless, apparently, I’m talking about health issues where I’ve found the response takes a sharp turn into, “You […]

The Younger, Cooler Me

In light of the plans I have to move out of my house I’ve been doing some de-cluttering lately.  This typically begins with the best of intentions but quickly dissolves into me basically skipping down memory lane for an unnecessary amount of time until I decide that’s enough “work” for the day and move on […]

Lately…

In my >>last blog post<< I talked about some of the ways I can be my own worst enemy when it comes to actual progress in….well, pretty much anything. (**Side Note: I just stopped typing this post at this exact spot because I thought I might need to switch up my blog theme and that was necessary […]

Back on Track

I have been told before that I am a good “idea person” but not such a good “action person”.  It’s not my favorite assessment of all time, but it’s a fair and true statement.  As much as I hate to admit it, I do have a tendency to kind of lose myself at times.  I […]

A Big Nudge

I normally keep things pretty light on here, but yesterday morning I had this thought that I wanted to share, that over the course of the day developed into a whole ‘thing’.  I’ll let you know up front this post is about God so if you’re not up for it, bail now.  I hope you’ll […]

Out and About: Lake Guntersville

I still don’t have a camper.  A few plans have changed though getting one remains on my radar.  In the meantime, this week some friends who do have a camper graciously invited me to spend some time with them at Lake Guntersville State Park.  Of course, I jumped at the offer.  A chance to experience camper living […]
