Nana Camp – Part 2

Nana Camp – Part 2

After two days of learning about our Viking Heritage, it was time to change it up and have a cousin's day!  For Day 3 of Nana Camp, we invited my niece’s three kids to participate in a day planned just for them. All seven cousins worked on making tie-dyed T-shirts -...

Nana Camp – Part 1

Nana Camp – Part 1

One of the reasons I retired was to spend more time with my grandkids, while they were still young.  In the early months of the pandemic, during the spring of 2020 when many of us started working from home and our kids transitioned to online learning for safety...

E-Bikes

E-Bikes

Over the years I have really enjoyed bike riding.  But as I’ve aged it seems like I spend more time going uphill than down.  It is easy to coast down a hill creating a gentle breeze with the wind in your face.  But traveling back home, I call climbing...

Lipstick, Dresses and Shoes

Lipstick, Dresses and Shoes

I read somewhere that retail sales have been surging on lipstick, dresses, and shoes. I imagine this is because, following a year of mandatory masks and lockdowns, contrasted with vaccinations and lower infection numbers, the entire world has decided to reschedule...

Snow Canyon and Angel Bird

Snow Canyon and Angel Bird

One morning on our road trip we took a break from golf and went to Snow Canyon State Park in Utah.  Just about 20 minutes from the town of Saint George, Snow Canyon is an overlooked gem of a park. https://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/snow-canyon/ They're many different...

Road Trip

Road Trip

A good friend of my husband generously invited us to share his condo in Saint George, Utah for a week in May.  Now that I’m retired and not tied to a work or vacation schedule we decided to do something that we haven’t done in years, a “Road Trip”. In addition to...

Ladies League

Ladies League

I’m finding that one of the challenges of retirement, especially if you are the first of your friend group to retire, is that everyone else is working. At this age, it can be hard to make new friends who share the same interests. My most pleasant surprise is how much...
