Well hello….if there is anyone out there reading this! I’ve been away from blogging for far, far too long. I think I fit in with a bunch of “bloggers” who have also gotten away from actually blogging and instead rely solely on social media to send out ideas, images and other creative folly.

Blogging Again

I’ll admit, I’ve thought about getting back to the actual idea of writing often, but somehow it seems somewhat daunting to dive back in. I know I create this pressure in my mind as it really doesn’t take much to sit down and right/share my thoughts, ideas and inspirations. So, here I am in August of 2022 giving it a bit of a go. No guarantees as to what I might write about. I have no lofty goals except to possibly enjoy blogging again as I did when I started this site.

I’ll be starting off a bit slow here…not worrying too much about SEO (well, maybe a bit) and style and/or topics. I’m just going to blah, blah, blah hopefully once a week – not putting to much pressure on myself or anyone who chooses to read my words.

Always smiling while we’re riding!

To start, well, all IS well and I’m grateful for that. Since I’ve been away from this site for over a year and a half, a lot has happened – even with the world shutting down and finally seeming to re-open. I’ll share a little of what we’ve been up to during this time. Mostly, I hope to show more of what’s happening now.

Home Life

Jimi and I are still happy here on our little bit of “shangri-la” at the base of the Santa Cruz mountains taking care of our homes, our 2 feral cats, and our gardens. He’s just had full knee replacement surgery, so we’ve been around the homestead here quite a bit lately. This means our home is quite an organized place right now. His healing is going well. We’re hoping to be back out on our e-mountain bikes again soon exploring, taking videos and photos as we go.

Here’s one of our favorite rides (pre-surgery) around San Francisco Bay.

I’ll share more videos we’ve made since I’ve last posted on this site in future posts. Most of these are made with the relive App and haven’t been shared on any of my social media sites.

Little Goodie

I’d also like to leave you with a link to a little goodie that I’ve been turned on to on Amazon – aka my best friend (yes, if you click the link, as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases). I’m sharing this because it’s a recent WOW in my book! After years of trying many brands of lip balm, this nighttime lip mask seems to really be doing the trick.

Don’t worry, I won’t be bombarding you with product links. This may not seem relevant to this post, but as I was writing this, I realized I wasn’t biting my “peely” lips. So, that makes sharing this a relevant win in my book.

Welcome to anyone who is showing up here to follow my blogging posts to see what we’re up to. If you have any thoughts or just want to say ‘hi’, please leave a comment on this post. It will be great to re-connect and thanks for stopping by!

Okay, I’m ready to hit “post” and see what happens. So much has changed in WordPress since the last time I did this!

  1. Seeing your vids, and reading what tourguide captions you provided over the past year or so, allow the world into your lives, and, in a way, allow your love and excitement for life….into ours. Though the commentary was always uplifting,and the scenery was truly amazing, the Rambo Skaters on Skyline’ cemented top prize in my book!
    And it gave us a connection during a time when we were asked to ‘disconnect’.
    Didn’t know you had knee surgery. You guys will be back at it in no time, and I look forward to connecting thru your wonderful blog. Glad you’re back! i’ve been writing some myself. Peaceful music for my friends. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-J7Ge0sjQ8)
