30 Minutes in the Life: April 2019

I am not going to lie – this post is more than 30 minutes but I am going to share it all anyway.  This month we headed to San Antonio to meet up with my brother.  Yes he was back again for a conference.  That man puts more mileage on his suitcase than anyone else I know.  We flew in Tuesday and flew out…

30 Minutes in the Life: March 2019

While the opportunity is still available, I like to try and spend time with my brother when he visits the USA.  He’s been a bit of a frequent flyer the past couple of years, but will stop soon.  We were fortunate to have him come through in December just in time for Amy’s wedding.  It was perfect to be able to have family with…

30 Minutes in the Life: February 2019

February has been a interesting month of hot days, cold days and those in-between rainy days.  My goal has been to go walking in the wetlands on a Friday but just lately my Fridays have been wet and not much walking has got done. There was a little break in the weather this particular Friday and I decided to go to the local park. …

30 Minutes in the Life: November 2018: Portland Whale Watching Expedition

Portland was a nice clear day, and so prior to walking the harbor area, we agreed we would book our tickets to go whale watching.  Once done, we walked around and then decided to grab something to eat before heading down to the boat to head out for 4 hours. I will apologize right up front that there is a lot of photo’s but…

30 Minutes in the Life: October 2018: Portland

For this month’s 30 Minutes I thought I would share some of the time we spent in Portland, Maine. Our drive from Wells Beach took about 40 minutes and we saw some great sights along the way.   Driving up to Portland we had fog. I was not happy.  We were heading to Portland to do some whale watching.  Ugh – fog means no whale…

30 Minutes in the Life: August 2018

I have recently taken to photographing lizards, big and small, While out on my walk out the other day, I was mentally thinking I was a little disappointed that I had not come across any Iguana.  Iguana are illegal aliens apparently to South Florida.  To my mind they are incredibly beautiful lizards however, they do breed copiously and are inclined to take over.  However, I…

30 Minutes in the Life: July 2018

This month I was really challenged on what to blog.  It has been a busy month and a number of doctors appointments has had me busy on my day’s off.  I was playing around with the computer the other evening and thought I would come up with some silhouettes. So here is this months 30 minutes of working on my computer.   Thank you…

30 Minutes in the Life: June 2018

Growing up with an English grandmother living in our home, the ritual of tea drinking was a common place occurrence.  We did not drink coffee very often.  Moving to the USA, I quickly changed to drinking coffee but over the past few years I have reverted back to drinking tea. Recently my immediate supervisor at work retired, and the ladies in her leadership team…

30 Minutes in the Life: May 2018

For my 30 Minutes in the Life this month I am going to share a trip to the Loxahatchee National Park which is 15 minutes from where I live.  A quick, jump in the car and rush up in time to catch the sunset.  We have had a lot of rain and so it has made it difficult to get any photo’s recently. This…

30 Minutes in the Life: April 2018

All motor vehicles were kicked out of the neighborhood this past week in order to repave the road.  So the first day I went off to work, and when I came home it appeared that you could drive in.  All they had done was lifted the existing tar.  So I snuck in, rebel that I am lol.  However, that meant I had to be…
