I was chased to CT and back to NC by Hurricane Irene in August (just after my 69th birthday).
My refrigerator was dead when I got home, because I only had a cat sitter, not a refrigerator sitter.
A really good friend (who had been very ill) died.
I volunteered to:
- organize a Care Team training program for members of my church.
- teach a class about celebrating becoming "crones" whenever women might chose to.
- help with a church service on the Vernal Equinox by the Women's Spirituality Group.
- help with my friend's memorial.
That was just the first 30 days of being Sixty Nine.
Early trip to FL for NCECA conference of pottery people, where I saw 2 of my sons, some grands, and lots of pottery. (actually odyssey trip number one for that year)
Odessey to Florida number two in Nov. with Sarah, when I was officially 69.
I've got so much material to sift through, an outline of the adventures will be sketched out soon, including what might go together with what.
I don't think a chronological presentation will actually work, since my travels kind of go together...and they occurred throughout the years 2011-2012.
