The weather was just right on Saturday, and a little challenging on Sunday. My chore list for the weekend was to close out some yard work and the garden. It wasn’t a long list, just a list that could take a little while to accomplish. Before I could get to the closing out part, I… Continue reading Closing Out the Season
Tomorrow marks the first day of Autumn. The beautiful warm days and thundering lightning storms are about to come to an end. Walking the dog at 9:00 at night with the sun still shining has long passed. Several of us think we are going to have an “early” winter, well early by today’s standards, and… Continue reading Passing of Another Summer
I have a major data analysis project due by Thursday. Trying to figure out best way to present the data, which takes lots of time. Wish me luck as I sort through the many data fields.
Is there a difference between a breaking point and a tipping point? Does one lead to other? Does one cause the other? What brings one to a breaking point? The loss of a loved one. The loss of a job. Any loss? Lack of perceived support at work? Feeling voiceless and unheard by a supervisor… Continue reading Breaking Point or Tipping Point
It was an evening of good food, good company, and good planning. My dear friend Rob and I were having a parle to discuss a project we are working on at the moment.

Everyday we seem to see evermore unChristian-like behavior by people calling themselves Christians. As we’ve seen the devolution of Christian thought and behavior, I… Continue reading Evolution of Thought
There’s the Avon band gang, whom we get to hang out with on a regular basis (hopefully more regular soon). Then there’s the DCI Gang, whom we get to see but once a year—every August. My husband has been going to DCI Finals with most of them for over 25 years, meeting at venues, coming… Continue reading DCI Gang Time
The flight today was much much better than the flights a couple of weeks ago. No cancellations and no delays. We took off right on time and landed ahead of schedule. When flying into Reagan airport, always try to be on the side that will face the District. In doing so you will be rewarded… Continue reading Washington, D.C.
Neither delayed flights on the way, nor cancelled flights on the way home, could dampen our joy in seeing our son and grandson. It was nice to walk into a nice big hug from our son. We also were warmly greeted by his girlfriend; she was very welcoming of us into her home. Now, the… Continue reading A Fine Visit
