Pet Peeve

I have many pet peeves, probably too many. A frequent subject of ranting on this blog is the supermarket which is usually good for some enragement/humor value. However, today’s pet peeve is a serious one and not particularly humorous, especially since I have a lot of friends with young kids. Bicycle Safety! We’ve made a […]

A Grand Slam Weekend

We had a terrific weekend! Very productive and still very relaxing. Friday: Susan enjoyed “beer time” with co-workers after work. Traffic wasn’t bad on the way home. Brian stocked up at the grocery store and even picked up a few extra items from around town. We made spicy fish stew (think Portuguese influence) with salmon […]

6/16 Garden Update – Beans and Roses

The beans have sprouted! (Of course, I took a photo of the best bean sprout – but at least half of them are up, of both varieties.) The garden needs water (it was a dry week and I was in San Diego) but so far all the plants are looking happy. I have my first […]

Number 20

10.2 miles + 5 hours 15 minutes + 3800 feet of elevation gain = Carter Dome (and Mt. Hight) as my 20th of the 48 4000′ peaks in New Hampshire. I started along the 19 mile brook trail, hiked up to Carter Lakes, and then did the incredibly steep ascent to Carter Dome. I normally […]

Grandma and Grandpa’s 70th Anniversary

Brian and I traveled to Indiana this past weekend for a once-in-a-lifetime event: celebrating a 70th anniversary. To put this in perspective, Brian and I have been married 61 months, less than 1/13th as long. The people who make up those traditional themes for each anniversary stop at 60. My grandparents, age 88 and 91, […]
