What a great day for a late afternoon hike on the Nordic Trail in the Southern Kettle Morain. We got to say hi to our old friend Walnut, accidentally stumbled upon a geocache, and stopped by East Troy Brewing for a beer to go.

Here is my Hand Sanitizer recipe.

What you’ll need:

• 3/4 cup of isopropyl or rubbing alcohol (99% alcohol)

• 1/4 cup of aloe vera (99% aloe)

• 10 drops of essential oil. If you want.



• Pour all ingredients into a stainless steel bowl.

• Mix with a whisk to turn the sanitizer into a gel.

• Pour the into an empty mason jar.


The Fight For Clean Air run is in the books. I ran up Wisconsin’s tallest building today. 47 fights of stairs to the top of the US BANK building in 12:40!!! Thanks to everyone donated.



Maxine and I spent the day in the kitchen cleaning and cooking. And our broccoli & spinach lasagna was too good not to share photos of it!!!

Our heart weigh heavy for those that lost their lives today.

With less than one month until the Fight For Air Climb, I took my training indoors. Today was the first time I ran straight up all 25 flights for steps of the Bay View Terrace.





Happy Birthday to my partner in crime and best friend!
