Yes! We are planning our first road trip since moving to Utah, thanks to a cousin and her husband wanting to team up and check off a bucket list destination with us. Moving back to the U.S. right before everything shut down for Covid in 2020 was a huge bummer. We haven't done much of … Continue reading Road Trip Plans!
I turned 49 this year and for the first time I am focusing on what my style is. Part of that has been honing in on what draws me without outside influence. My instinct has always been to soak in what others around me enjoy, it started with wanting to be like my brother when … Continue reading Art Perspective
I was sharing yesterday about my four years in Italy in which I didn't work and the other person said she couldn't do that, she would be so bored. Perhaps I am an oddity but those four years, and honestly my entire life, I can't recall ever being bored. I have been unsatisfied at times … Continue reading Never Bored
October is behind us and what a month it was! Many thing accomplished with the move and settling in but not much happened smoothly. Just want to move forward now that we have crossed over to November. What I would like to accomplish this month: Computer fix must happen, or replacement. I'm done waiting, ABS … Continue reading November intentions

So, we made some calls and were told they were scheduled to be here Tuesday not Monday. Isn't that just swell. A whole … Continue reading The Pack-out Saga Continues
We set the alarm for 5 am to sort ourselves out before the anticipated 8 am arrival of the packers. In all of our previous moves they showed up first thing in the morning. At 9 am we were getting antsy, they still hadn't showed, called or emailed. Then the husband got a text: packing … Continue reading The Pack-Out Saga
Nothing is quite working out the way we thought but it's still working out. 🙂 I am thankful and hopeful for what we have experienced and for what is coming our way.
We have entered the countdown stage. Three weeks until the husband starts a month of mostly vacation time which mostly will consist of packing, sorting, donating, then terminal leave kicks in. Then retirement commences. Still no idea where we will be moving to or when but it will be before Oct. I remain forever flexible … Continue reading Countdown Begins
This may be controversial but we discussed, analyzed and decided to take a road trip in April to visit family that we haven't seen much of after returning to the U.S. and then pandemic and a trip cut short last year. Starting in San Diego, we drove to Flagstaff, AZ and drove Route 66 over … Continue reading Roadtripping
