Many Milestones

This is a time of many milestones in my world.  I chose this word as today is my sister’s 60th birthday. Who knew that little pest would grow up to become a woman who today I enjoy and admire? Very different as children, we annoyed each other mightily, or as I’ve learned to think of […]

Well Hail, Part 2

Louisville could now be known as the land of the Tarp People.  Tarps cover broken skylights on roofs and many cars with shattered windows are also sporting a tarp or plastic sheeting, along with ample amounts of that homeowner’s friend, duct tape. In my neighborhood, nearly every home has something bandaged. At the same time, […]

Tri This: Race Day

Yesterday was race day, my first sprint length triathlon. A half mile open water swim, followed by a 10 mile bike ride and a 5k run. I chose this race in particular for its smaller size (limited to 450 entrants in both the sprint and shorter super sprint events) and because it was a women’s […]

Well Hail!

It was a normal Monday evening. We finished dinner, washed up, and were watching a little Antiques Road Show on PBS (we are very fancy at my house). Then bam! the wind picked up, there was a little rain, some thunder and then HAIL.  Big-ass hail. One, two, three inches in diameter, coming down fast […]
