I’m thankful that my triglycerides are much lower than they were at my annual physical. I dropped them by altering my diet a bit and doing lots of walking. I’m almost back in the normal range. I don’t want to depend on medication for something I can do with so little effort. I had a follow up appointment with my doctor and she was very pleased with my progress in just three months.

I’m thankful that at almost 70 years of age I’m very healthy. Hubby and I are much slower, but we’re still very active. It’s so important to stay as healthy as we can.

What are you thankful for today?

On July 14th, hubby and I left Rio Vista heading to Pittsburg Marina. It takes about 1 hour an 45 minutes. Some days it’s calm and some days not so much. This was a bumpy ride, but we’ve traveled in worse conditions.


Sorry for the beeping CO monitor, but we were closed up so we wouldn’t get wet. Our boat is sound and we were sitting together on the helm seat enjoying the ride.

For my buddy Cathy Kennedy author of Curious as a Cathy…this is what boating is like sometimes. We love every minute and are thankful we’re able to enjoy what we love.


This short video is our trip from Pittsburg Marina to Willow Berm Marina on Friday morning. What a difference a day makes.

Today I’m thankful for summer. Even though we have heatwaves here and there it’s still a fun time filled with boating, lots of good books, and tons of wonderful summer food. It’s time to get outdoors and enjoy Mother Nature.

I’m thankful that we are retired and have found many ways to keep ourselves busy. We vowed we wouldn’t sit in rockers in front of the television when we retired. We’ve not done that.
