Happy New Year!

My grand-dog and I are navigating through the maze of what needs to be done, what I’d like to get done, what I’d rather do, and why do anything at all. The kids have gone on vacation (hence the dog sitting) and I am going to ring in the New Year with a puppy who…

The Peak

Whenever I return to the Colorado Springs area, one of my favorite things to see is Pikes Peak. I came down for a book signing at Covered Treasures Bookstore in Monument (a treasure in itself) and low and behold, the mountain was socked in by a coming snow storm and nary a glimpse of it…
