I’m happiest at home. 

Simple truth. While our new-build condo is not completely decorated, it’s comfortable. It already reflects our taste, our lifestyle and our history as a couple and a family. Children and grandchildren recognize and appreciate the familiar and the comforting. Our space is perfect for us now. I awaken every morning feeling like I’m home. We’ve just been here 3 months, but we’re home.

Paddle Boarding

Who’d of thought? Almost 69 years old and I’m taking up a new sport.?! After renting boards at Santanka on Horsetooth Reservoir  with DIL and two younger girlies l, and on Lake Boyd in Loveland with LG, I ordered an inflatable through Amazon. I’ve decided that this is a very good way to enjoy water, and it’s a good upper body workout. CA, on the other hand, has decided it’s a bit rough on his knees and has chosen kayaking.

Where have all the bloggers gone?

Gone to Instagram. Including me.

I do miss the writing part. That exercise in brain dumping. Writing precludes understanding for me. Putting words on a page is integral to processing life's events, conversations, social interactions.

I've decided to look for a better blogging platform. Stay tuned...
