Back To Real Life

I hope your Thanksgiving was as nice as ours. Terry spent the whole day in the kitchen, making a delicious meal of turkey breast, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie, and lots of other goodies. That seems like a lot of work to me, but she loves it, and the end result is fabulous. As for […]

It Was A Better Day

Yesterday was a much better day than the day before. A little before noon, a nice young man named Jake from Lindley’s Garden Center arrived to plant our three new citrus trees. After helping us determine where we wanted them in the yard, Jake dug three holes. Then he planted each tree carefully, building a […]

Thank you to everybody who sent messages hoping my back pain had eased up. After a weekend of pure hell, it has, and I am feeling much better now. I still have the nagging low back pain that is always there, but not the severe kind I was feeling Saturday and Sunday. In a blog […]

Two Days In A Row?

Is it possible that I will actually be able to post blogs two days in a row without Go Daddy crashing again? Wow, that would be something, wouldn’t it? It does seem like they have finally fixed the problem, although I still don’t know what caused it to go down in the first place. I’ve […]

For the last month or so, every so often when I would turn on my Dell desktop computer, it would not fully boot up. It would start the process and then go to a blank screen. Usually when that happened it would take two or three attempts before the computer would finally come on. Then, […]

Beating The Heat

There’s not much going on right now except staying inside avoiding COVID-19 and the nasty heat and humidity as much as possible, and getting a lot of writing done. But we did have to venture outside yesterday to drive down to Titusville for Terry’s semi-annual appointment at Kutryb Eye Institute. She suffers from chronic dry […]

A New Lease On Life

Friday will be five weeks since I had three RF nerve ablations done on my lower back, and for those who have asked about the results, it has been nothing short of amazing. I can’t believe how much relief you can get from a relatively simple outpatient procedure. Since the day of the procedure, I […]

Potpourri

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is the third in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Getting Back To Normal

I think things are finally starting to get back to normal here. Or at least as close to normal as anything ever is for me. I think the worst of our colds are gone, though Terry and I both have coughs that seem to want to hang on forever. And I finally think we are […]

I Need A Day Off

Lately all I’ve been doing is running back and forth to doctor appointments and working on my new book, Big Lake Wedding. I need a day off to just go sit on the dock and watch the dolphins playing in the water and the manatee swimming by. Or better yet, to hop in my Mustang […]

Another strong round of thunderstorms came through the area yesterday, which cooled things down a bit but made it impossible to do anything outside. But that’s okay, I had plenty to do to keep me busy inside. I spent much of the day writing and knocked out a little over 5,000 words in my new […]
