Travels in Greece

photo friday: santorini buses

Santorini, while small, is too big to get around on foot, so we learned quickly how to use the buses. From what we could tell, all routes ran through the main town, Thira. To get from one city to another, the general route was to take a bus to Thira and then a second bus to the destination. The timetables were a bit confusing – the one I was handed didn’t match that at the […]

time trackers

Where does the time go? Why are there some days where I feel I’ve accomplished a million things (or at least moved forward on a couple very important ones) and other days where I feel I’ve gotten nothing done? I’ve worked on protecting my time, but things always sneak in and I’m left feeling rushed and overwhelmed. I’ve been working on improving my energy levels and that has certainly helped. I’m trying to get adequate […]

snapshots from gooney road – 27 may 2015

Today is National Grape Popsicle Day and Sunscreen Day. Up early to take care of things and get the girls off to school. I worked most of the day. Chloe decided to sleepover at a friend’s house, so Camille and I went to get comic books and Moe’s. Camille made cookies for school. A lovely, quiet evening at home.

significance of dreams

Lately, I have been dreaming a lot at night. A lot. Often, I wake up feeling not at all rested due to my dreams. I have the feeling that I need to start a dream diary, but my mornings are so rushed, I’m not sure that I would keep it up for very long. I don’t remember much of my dreams from last night, but I do remember the theme. Bones. Why? Because over the […]

Chloe went to the pool and movies with friends. We had a quiet evening at home.

With a better view. Some dinner, then another walk […]

Hotels, Rants

when is too much too much?

As a rule, I try to be understanding. But as some point, too much is too much. As I sat in the hotel room working on Tuesday evening, I could hear a commotion out in the hall. I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on, but already knew that there was a bit of renovation work going on at the hotel in preparation for the summer crowds. When we left the room the next morning, […]

Phelix was so excite when his grandma arrived! We gathered up my stuff and left, but Phelix ran into the hall. He was not going to get left behind, poor pup. The drive down to Savannah was uneventful. We stopped at Moe’s for an […]

I still have a long laundry list of things that need to be done before we leave for our big summer trip. I still have many tasks at work that need to be completed. But […]

I headed out to the Red Cross, but it had been two weeks plus a virus, so I was very busy. On the way home, I stopped at Showcase Photo to buy a new tripod. after the grocery […]
