About us

We are Sue and Lee Ann.

We are enjoying a simple but happy retirement together.  Well, one of us is more retired than the other.  We have been together 31 years. In 2016, Sue turned 70 and Lee Ann turned 60. We will write about our "adventures" from both our perspectives and as a couple. Sue enjoys baking, cooking, walking and her great-granddaughter, Lincoln. Lee Ann enjoys running, biking and learning. She still works part--time at two businesses, Kairos Communications and Cedar Creek Sustainable Planning Services.

 

Utah rocks!

In October 2017 we rented a Jeep and visited Utah's five national parks, plus Monument Valley. Ride along with us!

Journey into silence

Silence is beckoning me now more than ever: the opportunity to be totally unplugged, without even a book other than the Bible and my journal. Several years’ worth of waxy yellow buildup are obscuring my true self. The last retreat I took was in 2012, with the Benedictine brothers in…

A digital but devoted Lent

I need Lent more than ever this year. My spiritual goal is to immerse myself into it with practices that clear my head, stanch the flow of negativity, and lead me to be more mindful and prepared  to listen for the still, small voice of God. For one, I have…
