We’ve taken one more step to launch us in the direction of living full time on Sundown, our Hans Christian 33t sailboat. (more…)

Sailboat on Grand Lake

Clay and I are celebrating our 12-year anniversary today. In some ways it feels like we got married only a couple years ago. In another, it seems we’ve always been together. Either way, it’s all great! (more…)

Teaching TS101

As Bicycle Ambassadors, we give presentations in our community on the same subject. I also am a member of a women’s bike commuting team sponsored by Hottman Law Office. (more…)

I also have been working a lot, including shooting a fun TV show about how to maintain healthy habits throughout the holidays. It was taped on location at The Cupboard, a wonderful kitchen and foodie store in Old Town Fort Collins. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed hosting it.

Late last night, I posted this on Facebook:

Wow! Exciting night, but not what I planned. Dark, cold solitude. An angel disguised as a CSU freshman boy. A tow truck that never showed up. A son who did. Another tow truck that finally showed up. Home now. Just ate. Going to sleep. (more…)

This about sums it up. We are experiencing surreal flooding here. I checked on Sundown earlier this morning to make sure she’s still securely resting on her jackstands and she is. I’ve battened down the hatches here at home and will keep watch throughout the weekend as the forecast is calling for continued rain.
