Microadventure #91: Into the Woods at Arvada Center for the Arts with Reneya

One shared passion I have with my granddaughter, Reneya, is a love of Musical Theater. I’m so excited that she not only loves being in the audience, but she’s a very talented performer! I can’t wait to see her future performances!

Microadventure #76: Pearl Street and Gilded Goat with Steve & Lisa

Similar to my last microadventure, this one involved visitors! My friends Steve and Lisa from Minnesota were in Colorado to attend Steve’s daughter’s wedding in Ft. Collins, and they combined it with a visit to my house! The day they arrived, we relaxed with some ice tea and talked on my patio and went out … Continue reading “Microadventure #76: Pearl Street and Gilded Goat with Steve & Lisa”

Microadventures #32-#33 Poetry with Pat Williams Owen

Poetry! I love it. It’s like a puzzle that gives you that extra sense of satisfaction when completed. More than a puzzle – it’s wordplay. Wordplay combines two of my favorite things: Words and Play! Though poetry might not always be considered “playful,” I find it intriguing in its nuanced subtlety. So, of course, when … Continue reading “Microadventures #32-#33 Poetry with Pat Williams Owen”

Microadventure #2: Venice, Florida

I am having so much fun here in sunny Florida! Every day is a “microadventure” but the one I’m going to blog about is my Saturday excursion to Venice, Florida! Venice is a quaint little beach town about 30 minutes south of Becky’s townhouse in Sarasota. As I mentioned, the challenge I’ve set for myself … Continue reading “Microadventure #2: Venice, Florida”

National Wear Red Day Contest Results

Yesterday was the first of my February contests. I asked people to post their National Wear Red Day pictures on my Carpe Diem Connections Facebook Group and tag with #carpediemday. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. This whole month I’m experimenting with trying to get more exposure for Carpe Diem Day and having fun … Continue reading “National Wear Red Day Contest Results”
