Sunset from the Tioga-Hammond Overlook this past Monday.

We had friends over for a leisurely dinner. It went something like this:

  • Hugs and greetings.
  • Shrimp kabobs from the grill, cheddar biscuits, and a green salad.
  • A break for conversation and a tour of the house.
  • Steaks from the grill that had been marinated in beer, brown sugar and some spices served with baked sweet potatoes.
  • More conversation and a trip to the Overlook and the Outlet in my Jeep with the top down.
  • Back to the house for a delicious pumpkin-spice cake with cream cheese icing baked and provided by our guests.
MMM, I love summer and entertaining. We need to do this more often.

Office Follow-Up




Here are a couple pictures of my office now that I have settled in. The desk is much easier to work at now that it is back to it's normal height.

Moved to Laughter


While I was gone last week, all of my stuff at work was moved from one building to another. Now, I knew when I went in that I would have to unpack boxes and arrange my furniture. I did not expect this. My desk was in the place I asked them to put it in, but it had no legs! I just had to laugh.

After waiting until 9:30 for someone to show up to put them on (I went into work at 7:00), I called Hubby and said, hey, what do I do now?

He suggested I use my exercise ball. So i did.













With the center drawer taken out, I could even put my legs into the knee hole.












Needless to say, I was glad when someone came to put the legs on. He even helped me by modifying the desk so my computer fits inside it and the cords are neater.

Might as well smile.

First Post


I enjoy other's blogs, so I decided to start my own. I make no commitments to a regular posting schedule, my life just doesn't work that way. Not sure what I will post or when. Hope you enjoy this journey with me.

This is sort of a weird day to start a blog. I woke up at about 1 this morning with a bad migraine. Hubby got me my medicine and I was able to go back to sleep after a while, but still a bit off my game today. Maybe more later.

Cheers!
