Happy New Year!


Happy New Year!

I hope and pray the year ahead is filled with love, joy, peace and prosperity.

After a rough 2013, I’m looking forward to what adventures await in the coming year.

For many reasons, my blogging sort of disappeared last year, but I’m determined to put my best foot forward in 2014, and wow you with my wit and wisdom as my husband and I explore retired life.

Now, I left my job two years ago to pursue my writing and help assist my aging parents. With the loss of my mother a year ago and Dad getting older, he will definitely be part of the year(s) ahead. Just this morning, my husband and I took him to the emergency room. What a way to start the year, right? *rolls eyes, shakes head and takes a very deep breath*

During the coming year, Rick and I plan to take a series of road trips. I’m looking to discover some inspiration for future books, while Rick will pull out his cameras that have been gathering too much dust lately. We’re both very excited about a different way of life, and just a bit nervous about spending so much time together. Lol!

I hope you will follow along as I share some of the things we learn while living retired.

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.

Ecclesiastes 3:1

      Sorry for the delay, Ken. My website was down for over a week. My son just got it working again. Hallelujah! You’re right about Rick being a good photographer, and that’s definitely something he plans to delve into when we start in on our trips. I found out my second book will come out sometime in July and I’m very excited about it. Lots of fun stuff happening around here. I sent Leona a Facebook message a while ago. I noticed she didn’t have a friend request button. I’m guessing she doesn’t get on often. Thought it would be an easy way to keep in touch. I’d appreciate it if you’d mention it to her. In the meantime, there is always snail mail. 🙂 Hopefully we will make a drive through Bismarck one of these days (during the warmer months). I want to make a cross-country drive from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon as research for a book idea. I’m not sure Bismarck will fit the bill, but we can always make a side trip. 🙂
      Hope you’re staying as warm as possible and that spring/summer arrive soon.
