I don’t have the words to describe how I feel about the passing of my Uncle Harvey. He was the fun uncle when I was a boy and later, when I became a man, he was the man who really taught me about being a cowboy and not giving in. As time softens the memories … Continue reading Goodbye Uncle Harvey
I ran out of cream at home this morning and wanted another cup of tea. So I’m at a local coffee shop having a cup of tea by myself. Oh, and a breakfast burrito. Life is good.
Yep, that’s me! Life is better outdoors! I've not been "planning" much lately, more just waking up and dealing with what the day brings. I've been skiing several times this winter and have had a wonderful time. I hadn't been on skis at all for at least 30 years and have been amazed that I … Continue reading What Have I Been Doing Lately?
New Motto The end of 2020 was certainly an emotional time for me. Ending a 32 year marriage and trying to pick up the pieces and move on to a new life was both difficult yet liberating. Times of happiness were mixed with times of sadness, but, life is or at least ought to be … Continue reading What I’ve been up to…

This is the notebook cover I made for my bullet journal. Veg Tan … Continue reading Bullet Journal Write-Up – with pictures
I know some would think I'm a little scattered with my planning approaches, but life is an ever evolving adventure. Here is a video about my bullet journal with some comparisons to the Time Power system as I use it now. Feedback is welcome! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkm5nZAmnfE
I hived up my first package of honey bees today and I’m pretty darn excited. I purchased this package from Beeline of Colorado. I posted a short video about it over on my Youtube channel. This is a hyper look at the approximately 5 minute process of the hiving. I expected to be a little … Continue reading First Hiving!
I picked up my hive boxes yesterday and gave them a couple of coats of primer and paint. Now we wait for 6 weeks or so until we have bees. They will live outside now. This is not their final resting place. I've got to clear out an area in the yard for them and … Continue reading Hives Painted! and now we wait
