Yesterday was an emotional day saying our good byes to my Aunt Lena. The good news is that hers was a life well lived. As Carly and I talked about my dad’s side of the family, we were amazed. All of my dad’s siblings that have passed away have lived long lives. Some of the [...]
I tried to publish this last night (Sunday, June 25) but for some reason, the internet was not cooperating! I have so many photos I’ve taken and haven’t shared….it seems like time either slips by me or I am busy with this, that, or the other thing. So, I am going to just post some [...]
Yesterday, I saw a little white butterfly flitting all around the back yard. I decided to go out and follow it a little, just in case it decided to land. Talk about frustrating! This little butterfly is the definition of the word “flitting”! The tiny bugger would land momentarily and as it saw me bring [...]
of my Aunt Lena, my father’s sister who passed away in the early hours yesterday morning. This photo was taken October 12, 2008, at the 60th anniversary party of my mother and father. Please pray for my cousins, Lori and Scott (Lena’s children) . Scott is in Afghanistan as is one of Lori’s sons.

If I could spend each evening as the sun’s golden hues pour down on the rich countryside, driving through backroads and byways, I would do it in a heartbeat….
My goodness!!! Usually by this time each year, we have taken the camper out for a weekend or two, but not so this year. We are so busy, it seems we are constantly on the run. The poor little camper is left sitting in its winter parking spot with weeds growing around it! Help!!! On [...]
We had made plans to work at Mark’s mom’s house yesterday. My mother-in-law had some yardwork that needed done and Mark told her we would be able to do it. Well…*my* day did not begin as planned. It seems Murphy had an upset stomach at about three in the morning, and he threw up all [...]
