Fall Equinox

In the years we have lived in the South, the Fall Equinox is only a date on the calendar. The days are still pushing 100 and the nights are equally warm. Next week, however, the forecast drops those temperatures to mid 80’s and mid 60’s at night! Time to curl up with a good book! Check out the Fall Equinox from Solstice Publishing.

Labor Day

I started the day by reading a number of Facebook posts about the history of the Labor Movement. A bit later I heading out side to cut more of the grass. The temp went from 72 to 82 much too quickly. The glass of cold water might have been magic water, because I finally sat down and finished the Book # 5 chapter that has … Continue reading Labor Day

Alaska was fun. Besides spending time with family, I got to meet so many wonderful women. Meeting a former librarian in Tok, Alaska who was from Wenatchee, WA was a hit. I do hope she enjoys Book 3 which includes Wenatchee. Our time goes so quickly. Have a few more days of visits scheduled. Then we plan to head south to California before we turn … Continue reading Back in the USA

Packing Day

The original plan was to depart today on the 1st leg of our 10,000 mile drive. That plan has been pushed back at least a day. I’m really hoping my new glasses arrive today or at the very least tomorrow! This does give me another day to check all of those small spaces in the van to be filled with things we won’t need, but … Continue reading Packing Day
