Me Monday: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. I love food. That's all there is to it. I love the turkey, the stuffing, the green bean casserole, the corn, the mashed potatoes and gravy; maybe not so much the cranberry sauce. The rolls, the pecan pie (NOT the pumpkin pie), the appetizers and yes, I truly pay… Continue reading Me Monday: Thanksgiving


Me Monday: Anniversary, Pokemon and the Kiddo

I have to say, this past weekend was one of the best I have had in awhile. See, it was my anniversary; hubby and I have been married for 22 years. Which, when you look back on our years, it's kind of amazing he has stuck with me. Between the illnesses, the stress of working… Continue reading Me Monday: Anniversary, Pokemon and the Kiddo

Try it Thursday: Quick Breads

One of the things I like to do most is bake. It's been awhile, but I am getting back into the swing of things. This week we indulged in two separate breads; one savory, one sweet; both quick breads.

Now, not knowing ANYTHING about Digital cameras, I sort of did some research on the different ones and decided I like the Nikon Coolpix l340. I wanted a point and shoot, this would do it. Once… Continue reading Me Monday: My Favorite Pictures

I was inspired to write another back story when I saw the beautiful picture taken and shared by John Kimball . Again, this is a story from my imagination. I’d like to do it differently this time, in segments.   This is Part 1. Part 2 will be in a separate post, to make things easier. I hope you enjoy this, and fall in love again with this beautiful home.

  Truth be told, she never wanted the house to be built, nor did she want to slave away in the kitchen and bedrooms. Cleaning up the mess of others was not her cup of tea, yet still she felt forced to offer Earl Grey, Bavarian Chocolate Orange, and plain Black Pekoe every morning. After a breakfast of buttermilk pancakes and homemade sausage, visitors went their merry way while she cleaned rooms, collecting carelessly discarded trash, smoothing out down-filled…

Where in the World Wednesday: Cedaredge, CO

If you haven't figured it out by now (as it's taken me like 20 years to figure it all out), the western slope of Colorado, also known as the Grand Valley, is chock full of agriculture and recreation opportunities. Olathe, CO:   Just an hour drive from Grand Junction on Hwy 50  Named after Olathe, KS, the… Continue reading Where in the World Wednesday: Cedaredge, CO

Harvest Moon

I love the moon. I love taking pictures of the moon. While I may not be the best moon photographer, I still go out and try. Learn what I did wrong and what I did right. Here is just a small scrap book of this year's Harvest Moon Under the harvest moon, When the soft… Continue reading Harvest Moon
