Y is for Yawn

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 15, 2015

I’m tired this morning so if you see me in town and catch me mid-yawn you’ll know why. I’m not bored. I’m not trying to get extra oxygen. I’m simply tired. I’d like to take a nap but today is one of those days when I’m on the run. Today is a day when I…

An x-ray of my foot

X is for X-Ray

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 14, 2015

Yeah, I know that writing about X-Rays for day “X” of an A to Z Blogging challenge is predictable because “x-ray” is the first thing people think of when they think of a word starting with X. Thing is, I really do have a reason to write about x-rays because I had two of them taken today.…

W is for Wabasha

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 12, 2015

My family went on a mini vacation this past weekend. We were invited to a wedding at the lovely Villa Bellezza in Pepin, Wisconsin so decided we’d stay overnight in nearby Lake City, Minnesota instead of driving home after the wedding. Saturday was also my daughter’s 16th Birthday so part of our decision to make a weekend of things…

V is for Vaya

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 11, 2015

Two summers ago, I purchased a Salsa Vaya so that I could expand my bicycling to include gravel riding and some touring. From what I understand, “Vaya” means “to go” in Spanish – so I decided to name my Vaya something that reflected the “to go” nature of the name. I couldn’t come up with…

T is for Time

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 8, 2015

Time. I never seem to have enough of it and I tend to way underestimate how much time it will take for me to do tasks. Today, for instance, it took me about 40 minutes longer than I planned to fill out my form for my flight physical. I ended up rushing to get out…

S is for Summer

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 7, 2015

It’s hard to believe it’s already July and we’re already well into summer! I like summer because I enjoy having the kids home and having a more relaxed schedule. The weather this summer has been glorious and the mosquitos haven’t been bad. As a result, we’ve spend a lot more time out on our deck than normal…

R is for Riotgrrravel Reflections

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 4, 2015

Two weeks ago, on June 20th, I rode Riotgrrravel, a gravel race/ride for women and am happy to say that I completed the 30 mile ride. Riotgrrravel is very well organized ride meant to introduce women to gravel racing. The ride is organized and put on by an awesome woman named Ellie and her family. Ellie started the…

Q is for Quilting

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 3, 2015

I’ve been making quilts since about 1997 when I decided I needed to make something for a blank wall in my home. That first quilt was a small wallhanging made from a pattern I found in a magazine. I hand quilted the quilt but not having any concept of proper hand quilting technique, I “stab…

O is for Owatonna

By Myrna CG Mibus / June 30, 2015

Three years ago I had the fun of writing a story about Owatonna, a lovely town of about 25,000 located 35 miles south of my home. My story, Explore the Heart of Owatonna, was published in the Star Tribune’s travel section three years ago today – June 30, 2012. So, since today’s blogging challenge letter is…

J is for June

By Myrna CG Mibus / June 4, 2015

Yes, it’s already June. Where has the time gone? Where have my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts gone? The answer is simple – I chose to hold off on my blogging challenge to concentrate on family instead. Without getting into too much detail, my Aunt ended up in the hospital much longer than we had expected and my family…
