Been Busy

I sure do need to add some posts here! It’s been quiet on these pages because of life in the bricks-n-mortar world. We spent the spring and summer working out where we wanted to be, on a long-term basis, and then planning, and ultimately working on that goal. We found a wonderful home in a town north of here, in an awesome community, and we’re hoping to close on that at the beginning of December. We could be spending Thanksgiving here, and Yule/Christmas there. Things were hectic over the summer. I expect it all to slow down a tiny bit now.

Except for my nerves. It’s down to a final appraisal on the house, and anything can and will happen. I so badly want for us to be in a better living situation. Close to hubby’s work, where there is more opportunity for my daughter and me, and in a much, much better setting. Love the community, the lakes and trails… and did I mention there are trains nearby? lol.

Although it’s been quiet on this blog, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been fireworks over current events. Boy! There is so much happening, eh?

Current Read: The Most Human Human

A wise friend pointed out an interesting book, “The Most Human Human: What Artificial Intelligence Teaches Us About Being Alive,” by Brian Christian. You can get it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble in hard copy or ebook format. I am only about 50 pages into the book, but already it has given me several […]

We did it!

College Grad The commencement ceremony for Southeast Technical in Red Wing was last evening. I’m so very proud of my daughter for earning her Associate in Science degree. She can do absolutely anything she puts her mind to. That young lady has studied for three years, while holding down a job. She says she would […]

A Smarter Phone

A few years ago, I reluctantly gave up on the idea of using T-Mobile’s cell service in our current, very rural town. I closed my beloved T-Mobile flip phone for the last time, and switched to a service whose bars numbered five, on my new phone. It turned out to be acceptable phone service, although […]
