One of our favorite places to walk is Oakes Quarry. It’s a reclaimed limestone quarry that has the most interesting landscape. Last night, the Scouts decided to meet there for a social distance walk / get together after not seeing each other for months. I joined along so that I could take photos. Instead ofContinue reading “Oakes Quarry”
The past week has been trying for us. The Oldest had his first heartbreak and break up. I’ve had to be a “friend,” mom, and sounding block. As I said, it’s been trying. For 2 weeks prior to the break up, we have gone through mopey Oldest, angry Oldest, and then happy Oldest. It wasContinue reading “Our Adventure | September 29”

Three weeks ago, the most unbelievable disaster occurred in our area. Fifteen tornadoes tore through the area. One was an EF-4 tornado that traveled 19 miles and had a width of 0.7 miles at it’s largest point. Another one was an EF-3 that traveled 10 miles.

Actually I should say tornadoes. Yesterday was a beautiful day. High 60’s/ low 70’s, cloud cover most of the day so it was not too hot.
Many years ago, I would visit the Dayton Masonic Temple, as it was known, for Rainbow events. We were only ever allowed on the first and basement. The top floors were off limits and forbidden because we were girls. That was the men’s area.
During the first weekend in October, a local park has an Outdoor Experience. Visitors can try out different outdoor experiences, watch dogs jump off a dock, and camp out, etc . . . You never know what the weather is going to be like during this experience. Sometimes it is cold, cool, or even wet.
