A Long Time!

A Long Time!

Hello all!  It’s been years since I have posted.  I guess I fail blog school.  Since I last posted, I have gone back to work, then after 2 years, I re-retired, this time for good.  Now my husband and I and our 2 dogs spend lots of time on our screen porch, enjoying our summer.

The dogs are getting older; Banjo is going to be 11 and Darby will be 10 this year.  We still walk every day that we can.  Today we saw a doe and her fawn, and another doe and her twins.  So beautiful!  We see turkey vultures, eagles, bunnies, Johnny the horse (we give him an apple and a mint), ospreys, and so much more on our walks.  One day, as we sat on our porch, we saw a wolf!  That was very exciting!


Retirement is wonderful.  You can put off today, what you can do tomorrow.  Sometimes that means I don’t get stuff done.  Oh well.  I am enjoying the journey life has laid out for me.  I just got back from a trip to Michigan.  I took my 10 year old granddaughter with me to visit my daughter and her family in Grand Rapids.  We had a blast.  My other granddaughter is 11.  The cousins enjoyed every minute and so did I.  We took the S.S.Badger across Lake Michigan.  This was taken from their website:  “The S.S. Badger offers the largest cross-lake passenger service on the Great Lakes and an authentic steamship experience. The relaxing four-hour, 60-mile cruise takes passengers, autos, RVs, tour buses, motorcycles, bicycles, and commercial trucks across Lake Michigan between Ludington, Michigan and Manitowoc, Wisconsin.”  IMG_0108

Since my last posting, I’ve created lots of art and taught myself to crochet.  More about that in later posts.

It’s good to be back!  Enjoy your day!
