Penny’s Art

We’ve had such a mild winter, unlike the millions back east, out west, and up north who have been pummeled with record snow and ice. It was warm enough to work in the yard this week. I cut down spent perennials from last season, and noticed green sprouts all over the place. Iris, and the…

More Memories

Progress. We made some organizational decisions in my parent’s house and that helps the sorting process. On my next trip, I believe we’ll be able to reduce the storage units from three to two. Another load of clothing has gone to charity. I almost said final load, but after that trip we found more clothes…

The Process!

We drove to the mountains on a fifty degree day. There was not much snow where we went, but we were surprised by a sudden snow squall as we hiked. We saw it in the distance behind us and I truly thought we had an hour before it reached us. No no no, with in…

The Vortex!

How the days fill up and flit by. I am left feeling I’m in a tiny tornado. Time is flying. I think when you’re a kid, time rides on a donkey cart. When you have kids, you realize your cart is now a train, and by the time grandkids come along, it found a jet…

Snow-shoeing!

Wind and cold. That’s how this winter is stacking up. Not a very pleasant description and I am totally over it. I’m ready for spring, cook-outs, s’mores, planting more asparagus, potatoes, and I have my eye on another spruce tree. Yesterday was supposed to be the day I wrote this blog, but the day slipped…

Winter Stopped In

The kitchen is “nearly” back together, partially cleaned, and I am totally glad to have the construction over with. I love projects and then I hate the feeling of being invaded and out of control. I think I love projects that I do, not so much the ones that require others to come in and…

Patience

It seems crazy to begin the next blog when I just posted the last one, but my kitchen is going to be undergoing a face lift for the next week. I have no idea how dirty the house will get or how much time I will have to write, so here goes. I’m having the…

Out of Storage

Spring-like weather spoiled me for a few days, raising hopes for getting some outside work done. Not so fast. Rein in the horses. Curb the dream. It’s January in Colorado after-all. My goal needs to stay centered around snow-shoeing for the time being. I went to the store early and I’m glad. It drizzled shortly…

The eyes have it

I had a little problem with one eye, so my blog is getting cut short today. Fortunately, I was able to get into the eye doctor right away and the diagnosis is interesting. It sounds much worse than it actually is. I’ll see a specialist in the next day or two just to be sure.…

Long Process

Oh my gosh, it happened. In January. I got my wish for moisture and I don’t have to shovel it! Rain instead of snow. This is hard to believe. All day it’s been coming down in a slow drizzly rain that doesn’t run off. It might be my imagination, but I think the grass already…
