Halloween is coming. My neighbors three doors down decorated at the beginning of the month, to the nth degree. Not in a creepy horrific way – thank God. Just … it’s lit up like Christmas, but Halloween. Very festive.Continue reading “Not my holiday”
So these virtual challenges are starting to go to my head or something.
On successive days this month, I walked a half marathon…Continue reading “Observations on overkill”
There are moments from my IRL trip to Scotland that I will carry with me forever.
Standing in Edinburgh Castle, with North Sea breeze whipping across my face, is one.Continue reading “Virtual Edinburgh Castle”
Every day I’ve been crossing the items off the list. I read my scripture. I get my steps. I do my Duolingo and Rosetta Stone (still both Frenching it up). I floss my teeth. I get the things done.

My virtual trek around the Pacific Northwest continues. I’m still working my way around the area near Olympic National Park.
The 5-6 miles I walk each day aren’t exactly racing me along the route. (I only add the biked distances to my Africa loop). But that’s ok. I do occasionally put in a crazy number of bonus miles. Marathons & such, you know.
And the scenery is lovely, even just a few miles at a time.
I hope you’re finding your adventures where you may, in these challenging times.
