Everyday Adventures

Inspiration

I may be a new blogger myself, but I read many blogs – and have many favorites. One of them is This is Reverb. It’s written by a man named Ryan – he’s a minister in Cincinnati. He’s inspiring, spiritual, talented (a wonderful photographer) and so very giving. Right now he, and a few other […] Read more…

Winter 2010 Trip to the Snow

Pops and I just got back from a week long trip up to Lake Tahoe. It’s my second year as a beginner skier (yes, it’s possible for a skier like me to be a “beginner” two years in a row) and truly, I feel like I just can’t get enough. First thing I asked Pop’s […] Read more…

Plague, skiing, Dooce and Pioneer Woman

I think I have the plague! Really, I do. I actually looked up the black plague this morning, just to see what it was like. It was pretty nasty and apparently attacked people in Europe between 1348 and 1350. (photo from themiddleages.net) Maybe I had a past life there and brought this along with me. […] Read more…

Tanks, Tanks and more Tanks!

Adventure – yes, this was an adventure – a BOYS adventure, I might add. I was talked into going on this one. Well, bribed, actually. I took the bribe because I was promised that after visiting the tank museum, we’d head to Stanford to eat lunch and visit the Cantor Museum. I love Stanford! I […] Read more…

The Most Dangerous Man

Today, I’ll go off on a bit of a tangent. I can tend to do that a lot in my life – but hey, this is a blog about my journey, so I guess it’s okay to put up information on any part of that journey. Until and unless I decide to focus a bit […] Read more…

Stanford

Pop’s and I go for walks everyday. We love walking and we’re so lucky, we live in an amazing town for walking. We’re also very spoiled and live close enough to incredible places to take walks and incredible trails to hike. One of our favorite places to walk is in Palo Alto at Stanford University.

Wicked

Last night, I went with my “other” family to see Wicked in San Francisco. I, truly, have wanted to see this musical for years. It played in Orlando about 4 years ago. My mother lives near there and went to see it and told me it was a “must”. At that time, the closest city […] Read more…

San Francisco

I LOVE  this city! I moved to California in 1990 – after the big Loma Prieta earthquake shook this whole region. Initially, I came out here to work for only 6-8 weeks. I was asked to help out in the San Jose office of the company I worked for. When I left my boss in […] Read more…
