Throwback Post: Purge Fest While Swimming in Reno With the Sibling Panel


July 14 2014:

Another Summer Sunday of the #TeamTLC #purge and clean fest is coming to an end with the garage checked off!

Five years is long enough for the beautiful tea set I got in England back in 2000 and the set of China from my mammaw Downs. Bringing em out to play! What the heck good are they doing packed up where no one can enjoy them? Don’t give a flying pickle if they get broken … they are just dishes, after all. Getting rid of the 2nd set of dishes we have been using. Goodwill will put them to good use! Love it when I’m in the mood to get rid of stuff!

Throwback Post: Refreshing Swim With Interactive Vaulting Camp


July 18 2014:

Fun and refreshing swim and now off for a dessert date with Lillian! I had forgotten how good it feels being in the water … YUM!

Day 3 of Interactive Vaulting Camp for Thomas (yesterday, 7.17) …. Look at that Team Member T Go!! So much fun for him this week! I think I’m more worn out than he is! HA!

Throwback Post: Thomas Knows and Slight Hearing Loss and Swimming and Walking


July 30 2014:

Thomas knows Lillian is not thrilled to have his arm around her …. So he just kind of hovers it over her shoulder!

Lillian had another hearing test today which confirmed slight hearing loss in right ear and even more so in left ear. Next is an ENT doctor to make sure nothing is wrong in there. Lillian already says she will NOT wear a hearing aide.

Great swim after the hearing testing, fun game of UNO, and another awesome walk! Date day for me and Thomas tomorrow. YAY!

Throwback Post: Inspired and Blessed and Peaceful


August 2 2016:

Lillian and I had a beautiful walk last night. Walking with Thomas and Lillian inspires me and I’m blessed they feel the same. xoxo

There are times when a swim feels amazing and then there are times like today. Those times when all that exists is you and the water with an indescribably peaceful feeling …. Floating and feeling the water against ones skin. Today has been weird. This was a blessing in the weirdness! xoxo

Twinkle Light Lamp While Adoring the Feel of the Water

October 29 2020

I’m so proud of the “lamp” I made for our entryway. I love the combination of glass and twinkle lights. It has a remote so I can turn it on and off from the top of the stairs.✨ 🤩✨

Still able to go for a swim. Air is chilly. Yet, pool water is at a comfortable temperature. I adore the way the water feels against my skin. 💙💦 We haven’t used the fire pit yet. Looks pretty!


Fun Pumpkins With a Refreshing Swim

September 17 2020

Thank you to my mom, one half of The Romano Duo, for making these fun pumpkins for us. Made with twigs and sticks I collected for her on walks.

September 18 2020

Air quality finally hit moderate levels, I hit the pool. That felt so good. Nearly fresh air + cool, refreshing water = good sensations. 💦💦💦 … If it holds, there will be walking later this afternoon.
