Welcome Juju! Glad you found us!

Karen: Thankful your dd didn't get hurt in her wreck. Definitely not a fun way to get a new car but glad you love your Mazda.

Saltmarsh: Wish I could take dance lessons from you. That would be fun! The Livestrong program sounds great.

Ruth: Our health department is starting Moderna booster shots this Monday. Come visit!

Claire: Love reading all your food and wine adventures!

My Halloween Dinner party was a success. I'm drinking Blood Sangria right now. Saltmarsh asked for some pictures so here they are.

Salt - kind of both - I read mostly on Saturdays and occasionally in the evening. The more books I read, the more I want to read. My favorite genre is historical fiction.

Ruth - I sometimes wonder if I can go this year plus two more. DD doesn't think we should retire at the same time. He is now talking the end of March 2022 instead of the end of 2021. I do enjoy what I do, and I love the special projects, but I realize that trying to do it all in the work day is not reasonable (and has never been), so I need to plan maybe an hour in the evening and some on Sunday.

Looking at fares to go to visit my girls and they are outrageous - some of the highest fares we've paid over the years. Will keep looking before we book. There is time for winter break. Thinking of going to visit DD#1 and SIL the week-end before Thanksgiving. DH really doesn't want to spend as much as we did over the summer seeing DD#2. I like going twice/year.

Off to start getting work done. Will walk when it warms up. Have a great Sunday.

I meet with a group of friends every Sunday at 10am for a hike or bike ride. Fall in Michigan is beautiful. We did a 3 mile hike in an hour out in the woods. We talk about everything and anything. It's so good mentally to not think about cancer for that time. They did help me throughout treatment with these walks and rides. We laughed often and loudly. Their support has meant the world to me! It's all ladies and we laugh because one time a husband came along and did all of the talking! Enjoy your Sunday.

Hi Juju-mar and welcome to this wonderful thread. I took a look at the Facebook site you mentioned (The Recovery Room) and found it to be very informative. Thank you for the mention.

Wonderland, your Halloween dinner party edibles are truly works of art! I am beyond impressed with the items you made. They look incredible and I bet were delicious.

Claire, I like how you have such a positive outlook. It is very inspiring.

Hi All! I had a busy, fun weekend. The wedding we went to was very fun. It was on the small side & very lovely. The groom is the son of one of my oldest friends and the bride is a dentist. What I thought was very cool is that two of her attendants are also dentists & the other is a pharmacist. So all the women in that wedding party have earned the title of 'Doctor'!

I went to Yoga yesterday & Pound this morning. I also got my flu shot so can cross that off my 'to do' list.

Karen, there are advantages and disadvantages to retiring at the same time as one's spouse. I retired a year before DH and kind of liked having that time to figure out what I wanted my schedule to look like before people like to figure that out together.

Alice, your scary food looks so fun! I particularly liked the Monster Burgers with the pickle tongues! The Moderna boosters should be available here within the next couple weeks.

Claire, time will race by now with the end to your work & move in sight!

Juju, you are on the right track with your exercise plans! I am positive that exercise helped me get through treatment in better shape and, for sure, it helped me bounce back faster after I was done. I am glad you have a great group of friends with a set date to get together. I meet up with a group of retired teacher friends every Wednesday morning an do the same.

Claire, you sound so busy and almost normal re your level of activity despite the COVID. DH is scheduled to speak at a conference in Seattle in early December and we had plans to travel out early and spend some time in the San Juan islands before heading back to town for the conference...still on the fence. This would be our first business/plane travel since this all started...but everyone of your posts makes me believe Seattle and environs is as I remember them (despite the fentanyl - yikes!)


Getting back to my routine after Fall Break at school...so wonderful that the beaches of NC are still okay for walking and sitting and reading (70's) even in mid October.

Happy Pumpkin Day (NPR said it was a real thing this morning!). TT

Those monster burgers are fabulous!

I'm enjoying my Livestrong program. Now I just need to kick my own butt on the days we don't meet... Rainy weather here has meant either my dog hasn't wanted to be out as long, or has refused to go out altogether.

I did just order new handlebar grips, and a cushier saddle for my bike, and am hoping to get those installed before the weekend so that I'm no longer in pain and have sticky black stuff on my hands if I use the bike.

I guess that's it for me!

TrmTab, I see no reason not to go to the San Juan Islands which are lovely even in the rain. Seattle is much grottier than a few years ago, but Pike Place Market is still great fun. Some of the neighborhoods, such as Madrona, are largely unchanged. Which reminds me that I need to sign up for the Oysters and Wne party next week. I also need to pick up my wine club wine in Pike Place.

As for bicycle seats Saltmarsh, let me recommend padded shorts. There is no way I could do long rides without them. That said, I may splurge on a Brooks saddle. My buns are worth the best there is.

I seem to have a bit of post Covid shot congestion, but not nearly as bad as last time. You are right about busy. Wish me luck as I am going to be out straight until Thanksgiving. At least three different projects going on plus planning the move. Glad I have the checklist done! And I think that I have located movers. The place where I want to rent has vacancies, a good sign.

I am hoping to get a ride in Sunday which will be Halloween. Will stay way away from the pumpkin patches.

All the rain and wind have been just thrilling to be out in as has happened with my last 2 walks which were on the breezy side with the most glorious light. I caught a rainbow yesterday evening and a sky that was like a gold fire. Still a fair amount of leaves. I love this time of year. I have the Board Retreat in the mountains Friday and Saturday so will try to get out and walk at least tomorrow when I arrive. Perhaps if I get up early both days.....

I can't wait until Sunday when I pick up my new computer! No more locking up! No more waiting forever for it to boot up. No more having to do a hard reset! No more waiting forever to install system updates.

I can't wait..... I will see though if I need a separate monitor as the Microsoft Surface Go (laptop, not tablet) is extremely small and lightweight. What it will "Go" with will be my new office and desk. A whole new world of style in addition to functionality.

How great is that! - Claire

There was a cold rain coming down at 8am, so the Wednesday Walking Women were back inside. Most of us then went to breakfast, afterwhich three of us braved the elements to check out the Haunted Yard a local family who go crazy decorating (and collect donations for the Food Bank as part of the deal).

Back from my travels. Anyway, the 2-day retreat was a huge success and we got done what we set out to do. On my end, the list of things I need to do prior to leaving the nonprofit is now finite. I am calling this a victory. All the prep work paid off.

So did dropping off the projector screen last night. I also picked up my computer which I have nearly set up! So wonderful to have the processing horsepower and speed I need. Lightning fast. No more pouring myself a cup of tea while something loads. No more locking up.

Not that much exercise, though I did insist on taking a couple of walks. My big exercise was keeping it zipped. Especially with copious amounts of wine. Drove up to get a glimpse of Mount Rainier in all its glory.

In addition to the handoff, I have a couple of projects to work on this week. One is finally getting underway; the other is resuming. I needed the processing speed of my new computer to sensibly finish the second. Not to mention the best keyboard I have ever used.

Two more months. I can do this!!! Can't wait to start the next great life adventure. Most of all, I am thankful to have the robust good health and wherewithal to get there.

Claire, you should be very proud of yourself. You have worked very hard for both your professional successes and your good health!

Bruno woke up with his face all puffy and eyes almost swollen shut. He must have gotten into something yesterday on a hike he and DH took. This happened once before so we gave him some Benadryl and have laid low today. He's breathing fine, eating etc. and I think looks a little better. We'll see what tomorrow brings. I went to Yoga and danced to Marshall Fitness songs on Utube for about 45 minutes.

Happy Halloween! (I am getting the rest of my exercise running up & down the steps answering the doorbell for Trick-or-treaters.)

Ruth: Is Bruno better today? That's scary.

Hi Everyone. Last week dh and I went to the NC mountains for 2 nights. We hiked the loop trail on Stone Mountain State Park on a perfect fall day. The next day we drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway. It started raining and we were in and out of clouds. Stopped at the Blue Ridge Music Center in Virginia to listen to bluegrass and go through the museum. We rented a little one room cabin in the woods with a fabulous view. The rain and wind picked up and I got spooked thinking a tree was going to fall on the cabin! Even slept in my clothes! Luckily only one large limb fall on it.

We have been having gorgeous fall weather the last couple of days. I've been walking/running and just soaking up the cool weather. Handed out candy last night to trick-or-treaters.

This is a 600 foot stone granite dome.

I have been walking a lot with this nice weather. Also some weight lifting at the gym - not too heavy though. Ever since the long break from the gym during Covid, I have not gotten back to where I was with the amount of weight I can lift. Started back to the gym in May and progress is very slow.

Going to see our Toronto kids for a long week-end in a few weeks. DH was able to use mileage points to "buy" the tickets - he tried in the morning yesterday but didn't act on it and it the afternoon they were gone. Then by chance he tried again this morning and seats were available. I will take one day comp time from the summer and leave a little early the day we leave. Now we have to book tickets to see DD#2. DH doesn't have enough points for tickets, I do for 1 1/2 tickets (points on cc) so would have to pay cash for the balance which is about 1/2 the price of a ticket, but DH doesn't like the flights. Will wait and see.

Not much else to report. Stay safe, warm and healthy.
