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.

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…

Off the bus reflections

Salt Lake City – June 9, 2016 Our  journey ended in Salt Lake City’s Temple Square with a Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsal, including a full orchestra. When in town, they rehearse on Thursdays. It was a thrilling experience that punctuated how varied this bus tour was – even though one…
