Hi Alix, we joined the empty nest club in 2011. Then I got a divorce in 2016 and am now sitting in the nest all by myself.

But life goes on...

So nice to see you back, Alix! I left work for medical reasons six years ago and became a master gardener volunteer. It's lots of fun. I also started doing more baking, which I had not done much before.

Our garden didn't do great this year - we had a long, cold, rainy spring, so planting was late. Then it got hot. Steady, but not like previous years. On the other hand, we have a third season here - average first frost isn't until mid-November so we'll plant fall crops soon. Looking forward to cooler weather.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Glenn and I are doing well and I find it amazing that as of this last June, Buck has been gone 10 years. Where does the time go?!
I was just thinking of you and Buck on my drive home from my workshop today. Not sure what made me think of you guys but you were there in my head as I sat in tunnel traffic.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

And this is why this place is so fantastic. I depart for years and yet I peek in the door and am received with open arms. I love catching up with all of you. I'm on my phone so I can't type effectively but will reply properly tomorrow.

So good to see you Alix..you have been missed for sure. Every time someone posts on the Petty Vents thread I think of you and your vented knickers.
Welcome home darlin'.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
