Last Thursday, I did a SeaTrek and took a lot of photographs. I posted some of them on last week’s Jayspeak, but I did not always select my favorites. So, in this post, I am selecting my favorites – just for fun! I have no criteria for which ones I include. Just my own loveContinue reading “FAVORITE PHOTOSHOOT PHOTOS”

THREE-MONTH SEATREK PHOTOSHOOT
On Thursday of last week, September 26, 2019, I celebrated my 3-month anniversary since my second knee surgery and walked 3.5 miles, going along a route that I walked before both of my knee surgeries (the first terrible surgery was exactly one year ago – September 27, 2018 – Ugh! I did not know ifContinue reading “THREE-MONTH SEATREK PHOTOSHOOT”
“THREE YEARS LATER – Remembering…
I know. I know. I said I was not going to write anything today. And, here I am. But, I have some thoughts that I want to share. Plus, writing brings me comfort. And, if you find this a tad “schmaltzy” (is that a word…), thank you in advance for bearing with me. Three yearsContinue reading ““THREE YEARS LATER – Remembering…”
THIS IS MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT – AGAIN!!!
In my Universal Bubble here, I am into my third week of recovery at La Serena Convalescence Center here in Nice, France, after my second knee replacement surgery, on June 27, 2019. A bit of background to connect the dots (Remember Connecting the dots when you were a child?) I had a knee replacement onContinue reading “THIS IS MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT – AGAIN!!!”
UPDATE – WONDERFUL MOMENTS aka MIRACLES! -“SIX DAYS IN JUNE, 2019”
YES!! Six wonderful days in June!! I loved every moment. The arrival, the family dinners, and the farewell. Those moments were precious to me. Just knowing they were down the street was comforting to me. Getting to hug them both. Seeing their happy faces in the pictures they were posting for friends back home. ItContinue reading “UPDATE – WONDERFUL MOMENTS aka MIRACLES! -“SIX DAYS IN JUNE, 2019””
PARTY OF ONE
I read an article the other day that included a “Loners’ Manifesto.” So, I made a note to write about it because I can be a reluctant socializer. Steve was the same way. We both preferred staying home. Now that he is gone, I am still a reluctant socializer. From time to time, I haveContinue reading “PARTY OF ONE”
UP THE HILL!
The Park. The Monastery. The garden. The ancient city. It is all there – up the hill from my house. A mere bus ride away. In the park, there is a track that circles it. Runner, walkers, bicyclists, all use the track. And, in doing so, they pass the remains of the ancient Roman city ofContinue reading “UP THE HILL!”
ACTIVE OR PASSIVE VOICE – PLANS!
This is one of those days when I will write something, but as I start this blank document, I am not sure where this post is going. There are a LOT of things I DON’T want to write about, so let’s see what I include. For no good reason, I feel good this morning. ThatContinue reading “ACTIVE OR PASSIVE VOICE – PLANS!”
CARNAVAL DE NICE
This is my 4th February in Nice, and I STILL have not gone to a Carnaval Parade. Why, you ask? …Well, it could be because I don’t like events with crowds. Never did – except for the GHS football games. But, rock concerts and such, no. I liked to go to the Hollywood Bowl. ThatContinue reading “CARNAVAL DE NICE”
Between you and me, I don’t think I have any comfort zones anymore. Steve and I had created a comfort zone together, and were very happy, writing, working, and eating “comfort food” – pasta, Steve’s gravy, and his special homemade meatballs along with olives, baguettes, salami, and fresh ground parmesan cheese or Romano. We didContinue reading “COMFORT ZONES”
