Speedin’ By

Yes, the time is moving right along. Next week is Thanksgiving already. And, I’ve even made some progress on my Christmas shopping. You’d think with all the time I spend planning that I would not be surprised that the holidays are already upon us. But it’s crept up on us quickly after all.


This was the sky this morning. This is what we call a “snow sky” but thankfully, we are not getting any snow this morning. Although they are getting some not that far from here, to the west of Albany in the lake effect areas.

(I spoke too soon, we are getting some snow flurries now, but not enough to show in a picture. We tried. But that’s ok! Better than having enough snow to show up.)


There really hasn’t been much going on around here. The normal weekly stuff – going to work, coming home, having dinner, etc. – exciting huh?

The type of cleanup we are doing these days is the low key kind. Every week before garbage pickup, we just throw in a few more things to take up any extra space.

I find that the winter months are the hardest time to stay motivated. The grey skies and cold temps don’t energize me. By the time I come home from work, it is already dark. Even though we’re already planning some getaways for next year, and I know that we need to get stuff done NOW so we don’t have it all left to do next summer, it’s so tempting to look outside at the dreary view and say, I don’t feel like it, let’s wait and do it next week. Unfortunately “next week” too often turns into a repeat of the same. Well, there are four more weekends left to this year – we shall see how much we can accomplish.


  1. Time does fly by... even faster when you get into full timing! I hate the short days of winter...
    Have fun & Travel safe

  2. time flies when you are having fun and even when you aren't!..have a great weekend!!

  3. The more you get done now, the happier you will be. I was totally stressed at the end, trying to finish everything up before the closing date of my house.

  4. Better to take of the dirty business during the Yucky weather, so that you can enjoy the warmth and beauty of the sunshine when it gets here.

    Another way to look at it is, it's only 122 more days to spring.

    It's about time.

  5. Read your blog often and can feel your excitement to get on the road. Very enjoyable blog.
    I don't have a blog so can't leave a link.
    Wondering where the falls are in your header picture. They look amazing.
