Horseback riding was one of my favorite pastimes before I learned that horses are not to be trusted! A horse can appear so gentle and tranquil but turn your back for one second, and it will transform into a wild steed, whinnying wildly while rearing up on its hind legs and thrashing with its front!Continue reading “September 19, 2021 – Photo”

September 18, 2021 – Countdown
Somehow, some way, I have nearly fulfilled my promise to you, my readers. In the beginning, when I initially made the commitment to post daily, I was facing 365 days. It seemed insurmountable. However, I am now facing a mere ten. In ten more days, I can either continue what I’ve been doing (posting everyContinue reading “September 18, 2021 – Countdown”

This is one of the flowers that was sent to my father-in-law, in memory of his wife. The funeral was today and I have to admit, it really was lovely. It was tough to see so many people grieving but it’s part of letting go. I was stoic through the whole ceremony because I alreadyContinue reading “September 17, 2021 – Photo”
September 16, 2021 – A need for closure.
As human beings, I believe we all need to be able to put a tidy bow on things before we’re able to properly move on. If there are ‘loose ends’ or unresolved issues, it’s difficult to proceed forward without continually looking back. As my husband and I drove around and looked at properties today, IContinue reading “September 16, 2021 – A need for closure.”

I had an opportunity to take some pictures of my father-in-law’s neighbor’s grandchildren today. They were reaching through the fence in order to pet my dog and were the most adorable, little, towheaded boys! The pictures turned out fantastic. I told my husband I was going to use the ‘best of the bunch’ on myContinue reading “September 15, 2021 – Photo”
September 14, 2021 – Twists & Turns
This day has been full of so many twists and turns, I’m not even sure where to begin. To keep things simple, I suppose I should begin at ‘the beginning’. ‘The beginning’ involved waking around 9:30 am and heading directly to the restroom. After emptying my bladder, washing my hands, brushing my teeth, and splashingContinue reading “September 14, 2021 – Twists & Turns”

I thought it’d be nice to feature a photo of a flower today. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this particular flower because it’s so unusual; it’s definitely not something you see everyday! I’m not sure what else to say about it other than that. I’m pretty brain dead after driving all over ‘hellContinue reading “September 13, 2021 – Photo”
September 12, 2021 – Off to a ‘ruff’ start (part two).
Welcome back, my friends! Before I resume discussing the ‘ruff’ start to our trip, I have to let you know that we finally arrived at our destination. As soon as we pulled up in front of my father-in-law’s house, he met us at the curb and didn’t waste a moment seeking out his son. AfterContinue reading “September 12, 2021 – Off to a ‘ruff’ start (part two).”

The title of this photo is ‘Burned Into My Brain’. Since we left our previous home and started our journey east, I have been staring at the back of this cargo trailer. The going has been slow but steady and we’ve nearly reached our destination, but we had to stop again tonight because I justContinue reading “September 11, 2021 – Photo”
September 10, 2021 – Off to a ‘ruff’ start (part one).
I wish I could say that everything went smooth as silk today, but if I did I’d be lying. Today was a carryover from yesterday, which also didn’t go well. Yesterday, I spent countless hours cleaning and packing and cleaning some more. It was ten in the evening before I even got started on theContinue reading “September 10, 2021 – Off to a ‘ruff’ start (part one).”
