Do frequent trips to Canada count? Since Michelle’s and my trip to Italy in October/November 2021, we’ve been to Canada to see our dear family. Italy just whet our appetites to travel more…we’re used to journeying far and wide…anywhere we wish to go. Because of COVID, our passport has been inactive . Michael and I had to postpone an African journey in October and a Christmas trip to Germany and Austria to visit the Christmas Markets…a riverboat trip that we love. Plus, Michelle and I had to postpone our Ethiopia/Tanzania trip that we’d be doing right now! Looking ahead with hope and anticipation, though. I think we’ll be in Italy again in May to celebrate my 80th birthday, Michael and I have rebooked our Africa trip as have Michelle and I have done . So, we have lots on the horizon, but nothing soon enough to ease the itching! Enough whining… The purpose of this posting is for me to document some of how I’ve been spending my time…working out to stay strong, reading some good and not-so-good books…and creating art in addition to visiting with friends. Here it comes…


That’s a lot of art and a very satisfying way to pass the time… experimenting, researching topics I don’t know a great deal about…again, LIFE IS GOOD. Thanks for checking in. Stay healthy and keep a smile in your heart .

Big Hugs,

I'm a wife, a Mom and a Doodleloo (the name my grandchildren call me.) I'm retired, but have always been a communicator, art and music lover, an adventure traveler, reader and lately, a digital artist. I was a TV producer of documentaries and features for 25 years. Married to my best friend, we just celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. I had a blog on another platform for 10 years...want to be more mobile so switched to WordPress. Hope you'll join me in my magazine formatted blog. See you soon...
