Stan & Joyce Orchard

Trying to figure it out since 1975.

New Neighbors

New Neighbors

Or maybe new ‘naaaay-bors’ is more appropriate. These two were shy when we stopped to say hi, but they’re still cute. Capricious, you might say.

Spectacular Sunrise

Spectacular Sunrise

Snapped this on the way to physical therapy this morning. Just does not do it justice. The sky was alive.

A Walk In The Woods

A Walk In The Woods

Our dreary winter weather paused for a bit this afternoon. Walking in the watershed is good for heart and soul.

Firewood Therapy

Firewood Therapy

Heating with a wood stove is a big commitment and it helps with exercise. Having a grandson to talk with while you work is an added bonus.

Now It Begins

Now It Begins

Our first snow of winter. Not much. Here’s hoping it’s not a repeat of last winter.

Getting Back To ‘Normal’

Getting Back To ‘Normal’

Look who’s back to work. Trying to get back into our routine of walking a mile or so indoors at the science center. A challenge, but we managed.

2020 Mile

2020 Mile

Joyce Carol and I ushered in the new year and decade with a little over a mile walk in our neighborhood. It was a very dreary morning. Here’s hoping the next ten years are better for everyone.

Smooth River

Smooth River

The sun came out so we ran down to the Cedar River to try out the Spectre app. It’s pretty slick but not a lot of white water to smooth out on the river today. Got in almost another mile.

Hiking With A Hottie

Hiking With A Hottie

Now that we’re both members of the stroke club, it’s sorta like the blind leading the blind. Or feeble leading the feebler. Amazed we both don’t fall over. But we did almost a mile on a very frosty morning. Hope everyone’s holiday went/is going well.
