Downsizing from a 1200 square foot sticks and bricks home to a Class B RV that is only 22 feet long overwhelms me, if I’m honest. We’ve lived in this house since the first weekend of January 2004. Lots of stuff accumulates in that amount of time. Not to mention the stuff from the six… Continue reading Learning to Declutter without Panicking
I need to get in shape. I need to get healthy. I need to lose 60 pounds. (YIKES!!) Can’t believe I’m going to post this picture publicly, but here goes. I feel like I look like a big whale in that photo. YUCK!!! I’ve been walking a couple of miles 3-4 days per week, but… Continue reading Let’s Get Real
On our hike Saturday I saw this old tree stump. Something about it touched me. I found it beautiful and peaceful. I find more and more that woodlands have become my house of worship.
Ah…we made it back to Long Hunter State Park today. It’s been way too long. We didn’t hike far, probably a mile or maybe a smidge more. But it was blissful. This park is one of my happy places. Hope you’ve had a great Sunday, too.
My Amazon Prime Day steal arrived today. I’m so excited! I’ve had the Instant Pot Duo Mini on my wish list for months. I bought it Tuesday at 50% off. Yay! I made perfect brown basmati rice in it tonight for supper. It’s going to be great for our RV life. Did you shop during… Continue reading Amazon Prime Day Score

Grief work is hard. Still. But I do know God is good and His GRACE will see me through this. I know… Continue reading Mother’s Day 2019
A couple of months ago I shared that Daniel and I plan to significantly downsize, sell our home, and buy an RV to live in full time in a few years. We are both super excited about this plan. We’ve moved up the date to 7/25/22, but hope to be able to make the move… Continue reading Freedom Update
I did a thing yesterday. I bought a new laptop. I have a good desktop. I also have an inexpensive Chromebook. The Chromebook is good. I is great for surfing and checking email. But the Office apps are less than…well, just less than. The office apps on my iPhone are better than the Office apps… Continue reading Surface Laptop 2
I know I mentioned earlier this year I planned to create, and stick to, a blogging schedule. Well, the best laid plans…yada, yada, yada. On February 24th my mother died suddenly. She was buried at Arlington National Cemetery April 8th. Blogging seemed not so important for the past few weeks. Honestly, I couldn’t even write… Continue reading The Deepest Grief
