1) Slept well. 2) Weather is cooling and starting to precipitate late in the day, but I got out and walked early, while it was still just cloudy and cool. Moving in the great outdoors keeps me sane! 3) I avoided the news most of the d... Read more

I'm not a huge extrovert, mind you. So I have been doing pretty much OK these pandemic times... but even introverts need people sometimes. And holidays tend to bring out the "missing your loved ones" kinds of feelings, don't they? This ev... Read more

1) Woke without benefit of alarm. 2) Picked up groceries, and the substitutions were both few, and acceptable. There will be a Thanksgiving. Interesting tidbit, I had ordered a 3 pound turkey breast roast (which is big for me) but they we... Read more

1) I remembered that this is the anniversary of my great-great grandmother's birth. I met her, when we were both of an age to converse. She was 100. I was 9. I remember so often being reminded that this was her birthday, growing up. The tri... Read more

Remember the "Choose your own adventure" books? Where you read up to a decision point, ask your kid(s) to choose what to do next, then "turn to page X" to continue? Kind of the paper version of the early computer games, dungeons and dragons st... Read more
