GHL is Almost Nine Years Old

May 20, 14 GHL is Almost Nine Years Old

Wow, I have been writing this Gray Haired Lady ( GHL ) blog for almost nine years!

The first post, back in September of 2005 is about planning a trip to Nicaragua and how excited I was about it. Unfortunately, it was just after that, that I became ill so the trip was abandoned!

What a shame. And I have been trying to go south ever since then.

My little house in the snow

A lot has changed since that early beginning; it started on blogger and I progressed to wordpress when it was pretty basic and now… this new site is pretty spiffy – at least I think it is.

Of course, my life was totally different then. I was married, we had just bought the cute house on the water in Bridgehaven, we were both working in real estate in Port Ludlow, WA. Now, I am single (again) my house in Bridgehaven is rented out, I am ungainfully unemployed (does that double negative create a job for me?) and staying with Susan and Dan in Colorado, a place I never expected to be spending any time.

So life throws us curveballs. And my life just keeps lobbing them at me!

I’m Ba-a-a-c-k!

It’s been a while and a lot has happened in the last 3-4 months since I got back from New Zealand. But now I am ba-a-a-c-k!

I haven’t been posting because the person I used to be married to (I can’t call him what I would like to) has taken comments out of context from this blog and used them against me. But I decided that f**k him, this is how I keep family and friends informed about where I am and what I am doing, so will post regardless of what he does. He can go take a flying leap – hopefully off a very high cliff!

Currently, I am in Colorado in a tiny town called Eaton, staying with Susan and Dan. And we are in the supposed middle of spring but it snowed yesterday and the day before, plus we have a freeze warning and a lot of farmers and locals lost crops.

But to go back to the end of January…

A Wonderful Interlude

Jan 20, 14 A Wonderful Interlude

welcome -

With less than a week to go before heading back to California, we lucked out and were able to go to a bach (holiday cottage) at Pukehina Beach. The weather had been  very blowy and not very pleasant but we certainly won’t going to give up the interlude opportunity presented to us.

Winding Down

Jan 15, 14 Winding Down

Just a week left here in New Zealand. Time has flown by and now I am winding down, getting ready to leave next week. It’s really hard to believe I have been here for 2 1/2 months! And even though we haven’t wandered far from Tauranga, we have done and seen a lot of stuff! Definitely keeping it local, something that I am working on in my grannytravels blog – which is not up to date because we have been so busy. A catch22!

It’s Been a Busy Week!

The Honeys

With Christmas over, the New Year blasted in – and out! And now it is just two and a half weeks until I leave. It’s hard to believe I have been here since mid-November. So we are packing in the expeditions, but I don’t know if we can accomplish all we have planned.
