I’ve taken some time off from blogging but I feel like I’ve been fairly busy the past several weeks.
There was the usual stuff:
weekly volunteering with Habitat for Humanity,
serving at church,
home projects, and more.
We also took the major step of moving my dad to Mt. Healthy Christian Village. This has been, and continues to be, a big adjustment for him, and really for the whole family. My mother is still very independent and continues to live at home. But, living in the house alone is a big adjustment for her. In addition to dealing with loneliness (They haven’t really been apart since dad returned home from his service in the Air Force at the end of the Korean War.) she is in the process of settling into her new routine.
Also, Kathie & I went on a road trip to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. We spent a couple of days in Gettysburg then went on to New York City for a couple of days.
We took in some of the usual sights and saw our first Broadway Show: Hamilton! It was amazing!
Along the way we were able to visit and reconnect with some friends and family whom we haven’t seen in a long time. (see below)
I said in my last post that I was planning to do some evaluating and thinking about some possible changes to this blog.
Well, as you can see, I haven’t changed the look of it. I tried out several different “themes” and designs but I really didn’t like any of them as well as this one.
I’m going to try a slightly different approach to social media sharing, but the truth is, the only actual change I’m making to the blog itself is to do my best to write more original material. I have found this to require more discipline, entail more work, and be more time consuming, than I expected. Discipline and hard work are not my strong suits (ask anyone), but I’m determined to try.
Thanks for reading!
