Almost Time To Fly . . .

We're getting excited over here.  Our trip was moved up to July 17th.  So we have been planning and  getting things ready to go.  A little bit of shopping, not much yet.  Since I'll be traveling with my kids, I know it will be no dress up but all casual, which is the best way to go :O)  I'm so excited to visit somewhere I have never been.  Since Dave has passed away, I have not been able to visit my son in Madison, Wisconsin.  Brian's been the one flying out to visit us in California.  I so want to see in person where my son lives and works and not just by pics.  We are going to try to catch a Cubs game at Wrigley Field while were visiting Chicago, Illinois.  This will be a fun trip with my kids, so looking forward to it :O)

Walking . . . or should I say Hiking

Been enjoying being outdoors and walking, hiking lately.  I walk my dog everyday, usually first thing in the morning for about 30 minutes, sometimes in the evening but not often.  If I'm with my dog, I always feel safe, alone thats another story.  It always fun when you're walking with someone or hiking with a group of friends.  Lately, I have hiked a couple of times at Peter's Canyon in Orange County and really loving it.  It's about a four mile hike.  Uphill climb initially and then downhill on the way back.  It always feels good when done, good for the body.  Been wanting to bring my dog, but I think it might be too hard on her hips.  Buttons will be going on 10 years old.  She's in good shape still, but I can see she's getting tired more often.  Have a great weekend blogland :O)

Trying Something New . .

It seems as I get older, I'm enjoying cooking more, probably because I have much more time on my hands.  Thought I would try to make some chicken enchiladas the other night.  That's a pic of what they looked like before going into the oven.  Happy Cooking!

p.s. Compliments of Pinterest of course :O)

Happy Friday

When I worked at Hughes Aircraft Company years ago, we got paid every Friday.  Payday Friday's were always the best  . .  it was so much fun back then.  Miss those days :O)
