When flying south flies out the window

Last night I should have been settling in to my second cocktail of the weekend with the sound of waves in my ears and the scent of salt water filling my nostrils. Instead, I was cozied up on the couch wrapped in a cashmere robe with more holes in it than my aborted weekend plans, … Continue reading When flying south flies out the window

Randoms – February, 2019

I have absolutely zero feelings regarding whether the roll of toilet paper is supposed to be installed over or under. However, double parked vehicles blocking available legal parking will probably be my trigger if I should ever totally lose my sh*t.

On Sunday, March 10, I ran a half marathon under challenging conditions.  The next day I recovered with a 90 minute massage and the day after that we received 20" … Continue reading 6 days of skiing

Snowverwhelmed!

We got a lot of snow last week, more snow than I've seen in a few years. As I got ready for bed more than 48 hours after the snow first began, I could still hear snow removal happening - blowers and plows and trucks battling the nearly two feet of powdery whiteness. It was truly … Continue reading Snowverwhelmed!
