Blue and Purple Boat and Walla Wallas

I am 13 days post car accident and feeling much better. Part of that is because I can see that the end is near, and part of that is because my ears stopped ringing about a week ago. Yesterday the insurance company finally had an adjuster look at the car and they have officially totaled […]

Sunset in the Rocky Mountains

On a scale from 0-10, I’m at frustration level a billion. Our car hasn’t been transferred to Sioux Falls, SD yet because the insurance company put the ship from and deliver to address wrong. It was listed as picking up and delivering to the delivery address — BOTH the same address. I can’t make this […]

Chihuly Exhibit at Denver Botanic Garden

  It’s Tuesday and we returned from our vacation on Sunday night. I don’t even know where to begin, honestly, I don’t. I guess I’ll start at the end, mostly because it’s fresh in my mind and mostly because it’s quite honestly the most frustrating thing I’ve ever been through. Friday morning we packed up […]

Cattails

We had an awesome afternoon at the Denver Botanic Gardens where the Dale Chihuly Exhibit is going on until November. We really wanted to see this exhibit towards sunset, but our vacation this week didn’t plan for the gardens to be closed at 3 pm two days for concerts. Therefore, we had to squeeze this […]

Window art #vadervacation

Thankfully, there was a Starbucks exactly 2.4 miles away from where we had breakfast in Newton, Iowa. That is a painting on the side of a building, impressive […]

We live about 104 miles from Devil’s Head Resort in Merrimac, WI, which is where we were staying when we ran the Dances With Dirt Half Marathon a few weeks ago. I chose this hotel based the following: Camping as a kid has scarred me for life and have ZERO plans to ever sleep in […]

Backyard chair

  This is a chair that my husband built sometime around 1997. It was one of his first woodworking projects that he made in a class that took at some woodworking place in West Allis on Hwy 100. It used to be a favorite chair to sit in and read a book in the backyard. […]

Dances With Dirt Devil's Lake

  On Saturday I ran Dances With Dirt, my first trail half marathon. I’ve never been to Devil’s Lake State Park, therefore I had no idea what to expect, other than that there were going to be some steep hills. I’ve been meaning to run this race for a few years now and it was […]
