Over the River and Through the Woods…

Another long absence.  Not for lack of things to write, but more for lack of time I suppose.  But, I’m back (again), and kicking it off with a difficult post! My lovely and amazing and wise and beautiful Grandma Hope passed away a couple of weeks ago.  I fully expected, with no doubts whatsoever, that [...]

All is quiet on New Year’s Day…

Happy New Year! It’s been an eventful couple of weeks! Christmas in Greeley was relatively quiet and definitely white!!  (Think Colorado Christmas by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band… lovely!)  Tina’s sister and niece came up from Colorado Springs to visit on Christmas day (with tiny Jersey the chihuahua), and Lady (the giant St. Bernard) was here [...]

Tea for two, and two for tea…

Whew!  I was just getting ready to hit the sack, when I remembered I hadn’t posted yet today!  And I wouldn’t want to break my streak just yet… it’s way too easy to skip one day, and have one day turn into 2 months.  Geez, I’m a slacker. Tonight I enjoyed a cup of what [...]

Happy New Year!

So, once again, Mother Nature tried to scheme against me.  The day I had planned to drive to Rock Springs (by myself) for part of my big Christmas vacation, it snowed.  A lot.  And the wind blew.  And the roads were bad.  Bah.  But… two days later, it was only windy!  And by that point, [...]

Been a while (again)…

  So much has happened since I last wrote.  My Grandpa John (my mom’s dad) passed away the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  It’s hard to even know what to say about it, as you can imagine.  It was sad.  He was so funny, talented, and bright, and he’ll be giving us all wonderful memories for the [...]
