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?

This is the notebook cover I made for my bullet journal. Veg Tan … Continue reading Bullet Journal Write-Up – with pictures
Here is what my 2 Field Notes system looks and hopefully functions like. I'm using a simple cover and 2 Field Notes Sized books. It is very thin and fits well in my hip pocket.
