Post #2 – a status update

I just noticed that I have only posted once to this blog for all of 2016. Like many of my fellow blogging friends of the early 2000’s, I find myself asking, “Should I renew my domain for one more year or let this die?”

Considering that I was a daily blogger for SO MANY YEARS, it makes me sad that I haven’t made time for writing. A lot has changed. I guess, in the midst of the changes, I just didn’t want to write and hit publish at the end of the day.

Sitting…at what used to be our school table. Now it’s just a table. I’m not sad about it.


ReadingEverything We Keep: A Novel by Kerry Lonsdale. It was suggested by my kindle, so I borrowed it. Right now I’m just getting dragged on by suspense at the end of each chapter. So far, so good.

Preparing…for the holidays. I’ve done my shopping. I’m almost finished with the wrapping. The kids are counting down the days until exams are finished and school is out. Then the fun can begin.

Thinking…about whether or not it’s safe to return to facebook. Yes, I deactivated after the election. I have learned that I get along better with others when I don’t know what they think about every.little.thing. Plus, who needs to know what 480 people think about a thing? Not me.

General mood…roll tide.

That’s enough for now. I’ve got laundry to do.


A Tuscaloosa Sunset Photowalk

For my birthday, my friend April wanted to take me out for some coffee and conversation. I requested we take a photowalk and have conversation instead.


Introducing Chewie

Back in June, we adopted an abandoned puppy and named him Chewie. We know he’s made of some Bernese Mountain Dog, but we don’t know what else comprises his DNA. But he’s ADORABLE!

Here’s a more recent picture:


Still adorable…just a little larger.


Eight months have passed since my last post. I’ve been a bad blogger. A lot has happened: births, deaths, travels, work, school, recreation, rearrangements, what-nots, and wingdings….too much for me to attempt to sum up. Instead, I offer a few of my favorite images from the past week or two.


31-days-button[So what if I was supposed to write the 31 Days of Geocaching in the month of October 2014! Maybe life got a little busy. It’s my blog and I will fill in my 31 days when I want to. Ha!]

This is geo-art:

As you can see, geo-art is the arrangement of cache-icons on the map so that they create a certain design. The star and the 3 are in Alabama, but you can find geo-art all over the world. Check these out:

Here’s what it looks like when you find all the caches in a geo-art series:batman geo-art

This past weekend, we had a blast solving the puzzles and finding the caches hidden in the Batman series. These caches took us to a beautiful bit of countryside in Clay, Alabama. What kind of geo-art do you have in your state/country?
