I probably should start planning now

Nope, this isn’t another post about Halloween. For one thing, that planning is already done. For another, it’s all about doing now, not planning. What this post is all about is my next big adventure and what I want to (or should) do. Whatever I decide, I probably should start planning now. Age is more than a… Read more »

Battling artificial deadlines

Since I left Corporate America, I haven’t had any deadlines to meet. That is both a good and a bad thing. I no longer have the stress of a “drop dead” date. But, I also don’t have the motivating force behind “you better get this done!” So, I end up finding myself battling artificial deadlines…. Read more »

Time traveling with Facebook

A little over seven years ago, I was preparing to publish my first book. Everything I had read as well as my publisher said I needed a web presence. So, I created this website and also a Facebook page. What was needed was regular content and what I decided on ultimately has me time traveling… Read more »

Hope swings two ways

Today, I was working hard on the outside landscaping (more on that in tomorrow’s post). Most of the time, when I’m out front doing something that will take a while, I plant my iPhone on top of my fence and run a playlist to keep me company (and distracted from the sweat). Since I start… Read more »

Pass me a brew

I’m going to Disney! (Epcot, really) By way of my kitchen, that is. June is halfway done and I had yet to pick a recipe for my monthly new recipe challenge. Nothing was firing me up and, to be fair, I had been distracted by a back injury, massive rains and a defective window leading to… Read more »

Cruising for a bruising

It’s so much easier being a hermit. So, then. The process of making travel arrangements is usually cumbersome and tedious. The process of making travel arrangements for three people not of the same household is geometrically moreso. Let’s set a baseline, as well. Generally, each July 4th, I am invited over to my married friends’… Read more »

Planning and plotting

A good friend of mine is retiring next month and she and her husband are looking to celebrate by going on a cruise. They’ve asked me if I want to come along and threw out some ideas, the most interesting of which is a 7-night jaunt to and around Alaska. In order for me to… Read more »

Of two minds

It’s amusing to use my horoscope sign to explain some of my more contradictory traits. For example, how I have a degree in Advertising and another in Accounting. How I can create complex macro-driven workbooks at the same time as I publish a company newsletter filled with humor and imaginary “articles”. How I can rationally… Read more »
