I'm baaaack! If you've been a fan of the blog for a while (like the beginning) you'll know I had a cruise scheduled with ten other women, some I work with, some are old friends, some were new friends. It was a five day Carnival Cruise on The Valor and it was in one word....amazing.… Continue reading Cruising & The Single Gal
A new day, a new date. Friends have been reaching out to me since I ended things with The Gentleman, just to make sure I'm really ok, and I am. I'm good. I have realized a lot of things recently that have helped me understand how and why I was able to end things with… Continue reading A New Day
So it's been a week since I downloaded several dating apps and set up profiles. So far, I'm very pleased to say that I've met several really nice men. Not in real life yet, but chatting within the apps, they have all been very respectful, cheerful and encouraging. I've yet to receive any undesirable photographs… Continue reading Online Dating: Week 1

I've been busier than I've been in a long time at work, I've been going on a lot… Continue reading Rabbit Holes
I took this photo on our most recent Sister Birding Adventure. My sister focuses on birds. Birds are her thing. Birds are my thing too, but so is landscape, shape, plants, insects, dead things...yes, I photograph the occasional dead thing, it's ok my sister doesn't get it either. I edited this photo and named it… Continue reading Spider Cactus?
Yesterday was another Sister Birding Adventure and Cheryl and I went to the Aransas Wildlife Refuge in Austwell, Texas. This wildlife refuge was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Harvey last Summer and we were thrilled to find them open. We both had our camera's and my sister had her monopod (I need one of those… Continue reading I wasn’t expecting that!
I've mentioned in previous blogs that I'm becoming a rather geeky camera nerd. My sister is quite the photography artist - you can check her out at The Back Yard Bird Nerd and we really enjoy going on photography adventures from sun up to sun down, all over the wonderful nature centers and parks we… Continue reading When you think all is ruined….beauty
Am I the only one who hears 'N Sync's "Bye Bye Bye" when I read the title of this blog post? Is it just me? It's the end of 2017. As I write this, it's the day before New Years Eve. I know I'm not alone in wishing 2017 a hasty exit and a cheery "don't… Continue reading Bye Bye Bye 2017
