Facing Irma In Our Woods

I was apprehensive about the storm since we have a lot of trees really close to our house.  Hubs has a job of  maintaining them....

I have chosen to live in the beauty of the trees even though we have occasional storms.

We were fine!  We had 6 inches of rain along with the tropical storm winds.  None of the trees fell and we never lost electricity thankfully!

of the never ending overgrowth


I pray for all the ones who were devastated with these hurricanes.  We did dodge a bullet here...

MS Can Do Month


I chose this picture for the website MS Can Do.  We took an RV trip across country 3 years ago to see my son and grandson.  I had fun when I  drove my grandson around the Grand Canyon using my scooter! Priceless memories!

Below is the details of how to participate......



Launched every September, Can Do Month honors our founder and Olympic ski medalist, Jimmie Heuga (1943-2010). Jimmie pioneered the philosophy of health through exercise and nutrition, enabling those with MS to lead healthier lives. He motivated thousands by empowering us to focus on what we can do.

This year’s theme is #KickMS and we’re asking the community take part by sharing a photo or video of how they #KickMS in their own unique way. This might be spending time with your family, exercising, painting, cooking, traveling… or anything that they can do!
There are three easy ways to share:
  • Submit your photo or video online at mscando.org/CanDoMonth
  • Share your photo or video on the Can Do MS Facebook page using the hashtag #KickMS
  • Share your photo or video on your personal Instagram or Twitter account using the hashtag #KickMS (post must be set to public)
Shared photos and videos will then be pulled into a #KickMS social stream. Check it out > mscando.org/CanDoMonth and click on View Gallery.
We’d love to see as many people as possible join in the #KickMS movement.

Free of My Lifelong Spider Fear


Can you believe these spiders were everywhere I went?
This one did ride to town on the outside of my van window.

This Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end to Summer.  It reminds me of all the years I was tormented by these spiders during the Summer but not this Year!

I have worked on being free of my spider phobia my whole life!  I blogged about it several times but here is one post from 2010.

I carried bug spray in my scooter feeling like I was at war.   I needed defense from what was always attacking me.......pitiful really.

Last year I finally realized I was bigger than spiders are so I just step on them, duh.  I put them in perspective.  I don't know if it's an age thing or what?

I still kill any bug inside my home now but no longer a phobia. which made my heart race in fear.

My advice is to try to keep these fears in perspective, don't let them become Monsters.  Whatever the fear is....
