Christmastime is here
Tuesday, December 23, 2014      5 comments

For me, Christmas is a time of remembering. Because my dad is a (now retired) Presbyterian minister, we always heard the original Christmas story as part of our family ritual on the morning of December 25, before the presents were opened. I reme... Read more
New Shower Door
Monday, December 22, 2014      2 comments

Steve and I successfully installed a new frameless shower door in our master bath yesterday. We only yelled at each other once (a new record! - LOL) and worked together really well. It's one step closer to getting the house ready for sale. ... Read more
Sunday Singing
Monday, December 22, 2014      9 comments

I had a solo in church this morning. It has become an annual tradition to sing "O Holy Night" during at least one service before Christmas. This year, it was today. Steve recorded it on his phone; the quality isn't great, but it will do. ... Read more
Early Start To The Weekend
Saturday, December 20, 2014      5 comments

We picked up a new shower door for the master bath shower stall. It was heavy and barely fit in the car! But we made it home with the door in one piece. Let's see if it stays that way once it has been installed. We got the old door removed ... Read more
One More Week

It's hard to believe Christmas is just a week away. I'm about as ready as I'll ever be, although I have to finish the gifts that will get mailed out tomorrow to the nieces in Kentucky tomorrow. I should be able to get that done today, although I... Read more
Musical Wednesday
Wednesday, December 17, 2014      6 comments

Since I have to be at our church at 1pm for some interviews for a new position that was created, I decided to head over early to enjoy some music before the work begins. Our church has a concert every Wednesday at noon for the local workforce (w... Read more
Quick Trip to Clearlake

We had renters checking out of our house in Clearlake last night, so I'm heading up today to clean, do laundry, and get the house ready for my niece and her husband who arrive on Friday. Then on the day after Christmas we will head up there ours... Read more
Better Blood Tests with SP!
Monday, December 15, 2014      6 comments

Back in early August I had blood tests in preparation for my annual physical exam. I was particularly disturbed by my Triglyceride levels, which were pretty dramatically different from previous years. Here were my previous results: July 201... Read more
Holiday Parties
Sunday, December 14, 2014      6 comments

It can be really challenging to stay in control when attending a holiday party. First, there are SO MANY parties to attend this time of year. Second, there are so many special treats that you only get once every 12 months or so, and they are soo... Read more

Sorry for the late post, but it was a GOOD day! Steve and I put a deposit down on some new bathroom countertops and stopped by the flower shop to pick up a nice poinsettia to take to our friends' house tomorrow for a holiday party. His employee ... Read more
The Blustery Day

We had a little rain overnight, but the storm system is still headed toward us. Right now the winds outside are about 45 miles per hour. The trees are really blowing. The grapefruit tree right outside the office window is full of fruit, but it m... Read more
There and Back
Wednesday, December 10, 2014      2 comments

A big storm is headed our way, and we were worried that some of outdoor furniture would take a beating with the high winds, so I drove up to the lake today to move all the furniture to the carport. It was 2 hours up, about 20 minutes to move eve... Read more
Bed update and more
Tuesday, December 09, 2014      2 comments

The new air chamber for our bed came yesterday. It's installed and working, and we were able to sleep back in our own bed last night. I don't think we realized how much we enjoy sleeping on our SleepNumber bed until we didn't have it for a few d... Read more

Today is my last visit with my current physical therapist. I hope she notices the great progress I've made! I'm a lot stronger, and my balance on my left leg has improved tremendously! I'm still having some challenges with walking long dist... Read more
Humbled and Grateful
Sunday, December 07, 2014      4 comments

Just a quick post to say how awestruck I am by the incredible posts I received yesterday from my blog entry. I don't have many friends on SP (yet!), but the ones I do have are sparkling jewels! And the people who have visited my page and comment... Read more
