The older i get,
the more i appreciate
doing absolutely nothing.
Never was a statement more true!
I've had some much needed days off
and I only left home once .....
because my car needed gas
and my Sadie needed groceries!
I tell myself "you need to get out more"
and myself answers back, "but whyyyyy?"

“Wherever there is light,
one can photograph.”
It took a huge effort
to bring out the camera
and try for a shot.
It's been unseasonably cold here,
frost every morning for days straight.
And after working many long hard days,
I lost enthusiasm for doing anything
beyond vegging out on the couch.
I'm looking forward to a much better week
*crossing my fingers*
How's your weekend going?

no matter how often I travel
to see my family
while it may still feel like "home"
because it's still the house the family
bought back in 1966 ---
I'm old now, and my home
is my only home sweet home!
It was a good trip, always fun to see Mom,
For some reason, my first day in Calif
is spent suffering through a migraine.
My Mom's 80th birthday was celebrated at
her favorite restaurant.
We did a little shopping.
And watched some Olympics!

If you wanna
rock a bow tie!
A quick throwback photo ....
just got home from a trip to see Mom
in California - it was her 80th Birthday!
Just can't let that one roll by without a visit!

"She was actually learning to love Arizona.
The beauty and color and solitude,
the vastness of it had called to something deep in her...."
Ok... so it's not so "vast" in my own backyard
but still, when I visited Arizona back in 2007,
I felt a calling and knew it would be home.
It took a year to get things rolling, to find a job,
pack up all my things, then load them in a truck
that I would drive cross country, towing my car
behind me! It was a grand adventure, and
about the scariest thing I've ever done!
But I did it. It was tough, but mile by mile
until I couldn't drive any longer, I'd stop
for the night, only to carry on and do it all again
the next day. It took nearly four days to get all
those miles eaten up. I lived on peanut butter
sandwiches, pretzels and bottled water, because
I never knew where I would stop. You can't just
pull up to a drive-thru window in one of these things!
It was 10 years ago this month when I did this.
Where does the time go? It's so hard to believe
it's been this long, and yet I feel as if I just arrived!
