It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/21/2021 #imwayr

We're currently on vacation to Glacier National Park, so I thought I'd try using the WordPress app on my phone to publish a simple post.

We are going into our last five days at home before heading to Glacier National Park next weekend. It's super exciting preparing to go with all our long lists of packing supplies and fun new hiking purchases like rain ponchos, backpacks, knives, a 6-pack of connected walkie talkies, etc. But it's also been nerve-wracking. For … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/14/2021 #imwayr

YAY, I made it to the second week! 😂  Outside of a planned vacation to Glacier National Park later … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 6/7/2021 #imwayr

It's been an unusual last two months between the sale of our house, our vacation to Terry Peak (where we nearly slid right off a steep road and into a gulch during a surprise snow storm), and a severe illness in the family that meant an unexpected 1,000 mile trip across the country (Northwestern Nebraska … Continue reading It’s Monday!

#MustReadin2021 4/29/2021

I've taken an unexpected blogging sabbatical for most of the month of April, so I'm running a tad late for our first update. While I regularly read/review around 350 to 400 books per year, there isn’t always an absolute plan on what I pick up next. Often it’s what’s available at the moment. So I … Continue reading #MustReadin2021 4/29/2021

Like so many others, we've had some rather unusual weather this past weekend. I just have to take a moment to share some of our forecast from yesterday and today (3/14-3/15). See the very center of the storm in the map, below -- that little yellow blobby area where it says 42.9 inches of snow … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 3/15/2021 #imwayr
