I melt…

Last weekend, I went to the Greeley Arts Picnic.  Of course, the main attraction was the food (especially the crepes!), but there was a lot of art and crafty stuff to check out too.  I always like to go look at things and think, “I could make that!”  Or, more often, “Tina could totally make [...]

She’s got a secret garden…

OK, not so secret.  But check out what we got out of it!  Try to ignore the general scrubbiness of the spokesmodel.

Cool clear water…

I went swimming today!  Outside!  With sunscreen!I keep thinking I need to do something resembling exercise, but I have LOTS of excuses not to.  One of those is that I have to get up SO early to get to the rec center for lap swimming before work.  So this week is another shutdown week, which [...]

Bicycle races are coming your way, so forget all your duties, oh yeah…

Fat bottomed girls they’ll be riding today, so look out for those beauties, oh yeah… HA HA HA HA HA HA!  Bicycle Race, by Queen.  Love it. So today, I did forget all my duties (laundry, housecleaning, laundry…) - some of them at least.  I rode a bike for the first time in about two years!!  [...]

What do I do with me?

I’m looking for some recommendations. So, next weekend, I’ll be heading to Snowmass with Tina for the weekend.  Her crazy rich uncle (who also has houses in Tampa, Puerto Rico, and who knows where else, and spends lots of every year vacationing somewhere fabulous) invites her to his place in Snowmass every year to play lots [...]

Give us dirty laundry…

That’s such a bad title.  But I just finished folding it all for this week.  Then I remembered that I’ve been slacking again on the blog.  It’s been a busy few days! Mom & Dad came to visit over the Memorial Day weekend!  Yay!  We did some shopping, did some eating, even did some baking.  [...]

Over the river and through the woods…

…to Grandmother’s house I went today.  Tina and I headed for Denver today to hang out with Grandma Hope for a while!  She is always such fun to visit with!  We went to lunch at House of Windsor and had some delicious food and tea and desserts, and then bought some English marmalades – some ginger [...]

Taking care of business…

I spent a good part of today trying to clean up my email inbox, responding to things I’d been putting off, responding to things I’d just forgotten about, deleting things I didn’t need to be keeping, and catching up on some of the jokes I hadn’t read yet… and I still have a lot to do!  [...]

If I could offer you only one tip for the future…

Sunscreen would be it. Classic graduation song!  At least classic since 1999.  But so true. This weekend has been full of graduation activities for Tina’s family.  One niece (Jessica) graduated from CU with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in engineering – civil, I think…  Another niece (Maya – she hangs out with us a [...]

Dishes done, the house is clean…

And so is my desk!  Mostly.  My desk at work finally got to the point where I just couldn’t do any more work until I got it straightened out.  It happens every few months.  So I spent today cleaning stuff up, and got really crazy.  I went through all these old binders I had, going [...]
