Chowda This World

I know weekends almost always seem to fly by, but this one… wow! Saturday: Our neighbor and friend, Pam, took Jack, Cyd and me to breakfast at The Dolphin at the very tip on the Wharf. We checked out the free membership day at MakersFactory (3D printing and lazer cutting!) and then wandered around downtown,…

Yellow!

As predicted the weekend was very peaceful. Saturday I began my mini-fast and cleaned, cleaned, cleaned! The sunlight was simply gorgeous! I pulled back all the curtains and let it all in.

Good Days

Hello, all! We had a full and wonderful weekend. This year is starting off very well indeed! Friday: Jack and I both took a half-day so we could get our apartment ready for a little “Old Roomies” party.
