What Enriches Your Life? by Cher’ley

This blog by Cher’ley Grogg

So tired.

I know from reading everyone’s blogs, this is the case with many of you. We go and go and go until we drop. So much to do and so little time.

I have arrived in Florida, with all its glory and heat. This is a retirement community, but I’m not retired. If I ever get time to spend in my new home, I’ll be happy. At least I think I will. I am hoping to do all the things I love, like writing, reading, painting, photography, riding my bike, yoga, swimming, walking on the beach and miscellaneous crafts. I try to take care of myself, and to take a little time to relax. I love long, long baths. Calgon take me away is my moto. I had to leave my hot tub in Wes Virginia, but they have one here at the Community area, 2 hot tubs, 3 pools, and a big gym. I will eventually get me another hot tub. I like getting up at 1 am or 4 am and spending a little time relaxing and easing my aching bones.

What enriches your life? Do you have time to do all the activities you enjoy? How important is exercise and eating well? I ask myself these questions. I also wonder why I can’t just relax and enjoy sitting around, but I can’t.

 Stamp Out Murder


My characters in Stamp Out Murder have activities, and hobbies, but they don’t stay nearly as busy as I do.

James is a collector, he collects stamps and Civil War Memorabilia. He also enjoys photography.





Carolyn is a musician, and enjoys looking at antiques.

Does your characters have more activities than you? What do they do for fun? What do you do? If you make your way to Florida, give me a shout—it’ll give me a great reason to go to the beach and to attend some of the local events.
