An Island state of mind

I can only do so many mundane editoral type blog posts. I decided since travel has opened back up and I am traveling again, I figured I would write more about my adventures in traveling here on word press. My latest adventure was to the Bahamas. This was the first time I’d been out of…Read more »

Home

“Have you ever heard a grown man snore,” my husband asked as he finished his beer and ate his buttermilk fried chicken sandwich stuffed with pimento cheese during our Christmas getaway to Charleston, South Carolina. Many a times, I thought to myself but just smiled. In that instant, a flash of our activities from the…Read more »

Rainy days

Rainy days when you live in a tropical climate and used to the sun can be depressing, total downers and unmotivating to sun worshippers. However, I’m one of the few people that I know locally that actually get more motivated and creative when it pours for hours on end. Maybe it’s the fact that I…Read more »

A Half-Assed Holiday

Some years around Christmas I’m a total scrooge until the last minute when something sparks my holiday spirit. Other years, like last year, I’m all in–decorating every inch of space with poinsettas, holly and sparkly adornments. This year is the first year I’d have to admit to really just half-assing all the Christmas festivities that…Read more »

Observing

I thought from an early age that I thought differently than other kids growing up. As a military brat growing up around the world, changing homes every few years or more often than that, I looked for the similarities. Anything in common I could find to fit in or find some common ground that would…Read more »

Respect

It’s interesting that most people believe they give the same level of respect to the janitor as they do the CEO, however, how real is that belief, in all actuality? I had a reasonably seasoned career in a well respected position in the medical community. Most would hear what I did for a living and…Read more »

Different corner

January 2021 has turned a different corner for me. Although, it is very real that the pandemic rages on, my life has gotten a bit more interesting and nicer. At least for the time being. I started the brand new year with a new job in a new field, doing something I’ve never done before…Read more »

Holiday meh

All the traveling for the year is through for me. I’ve ordered my custom holiday cards that I send out each year and this week, I’ll be shopping for a turkey. It doesn’t feel much like the end of the year for me though. I’m sure the global pandemic and everything that snowballed from there…Read more »

Morning walks

I’ve been going for early morning walks for 8 years now. It started as going with a friend for something to do on a mundane, cloudy Sunday and it continued into being a meditative, sanity break. Sometimes I walk with a friend but most the time I walk alone. I’ve walked different trails and different…Read more »

Home IS sweet

Coming off a great vacation sometimes hits you like a jolt of a blaring horn from a peaceful sleep. This time it was welcomed. Not because I had a horrible time on our trip. Not because I couldn’t wait to get out of the mountains. More because, as I’ve gotten older, whenever I travel I’ve…Read more »
