Well the rest of December was incredible! So many fun things to do. My Em came over and we made jam. Me? Make jam? Yes, but it was the easy kind. A recipe I found over on Susan Branch's website. Cranberry Marmalade and it came out sooooo good. We had a great time filling jars while my girl was dressed as her version of Saint Nick.     Next up was a fun thing that the city of Missoula comes together to support and everyone loves. Santa Flies! On the 17th, the 4 of us gathered on the roof of my daughter's work building and waited in the very freezing temperatures to watch Santa ..read more

Oh my, am I ever enjoying this holiday season. I spend a lot of time sitting in my spot gazing at my pretty tree, hoping for snow and just like that, here it comes fluttering down. I had a lot of fun creating my vignettes this year and visiting with my old treasures. Now I can do a little baking and I've been watching some movies. New to me, The Bishops Wife and The Shop Around the Corner.  Both were wonderful! We went to the Red Truck Vintage Market and I found a few more ornaments (like I really need any more...lol) and a little Santa. It was fun to be out and about and of course we wor ..read more

My Favorite Season.

Coming up on my favorite week. The week of Thanksgiving. The whole week speaks home to me. My cozy meter ramps up and I walk around with a silly smile on my face. Little lights, warm fires, lots of turkeys and autumn colors to add cheer around the house.    Recap time. October kept us busy. We gathered yard art and carefully tucked it away in my garden shed. Covered the furniture and mulched leaves. We start early so we do not get caught by an early snowstorm. I love this time. I feel like a settler getting ready for the long winter. We had a lovely celebration, just the three of ..read more

I can see snow on the mountains to the north. The last of the warm weather has fled and Fall is full on. The leaves are gorgeous this year and once it drys up, I need to mulch them. But I do enjoy them scattered about. I just love this time for nesting and getting ready for winter. All my yard art is safely tucked away in my garden shed. And the furniture is stored and covered. I've retreated inside and have been enjoying the process of redecorating my rooms for Halloween.   September kept us busy. Steve participated in the Senior Olympics and all three of us attended and cheered him ..read more

A definite Fall feel in the air today. Very cool, and off and on showers. Last night I was raking apples and with the wind blowing leaves out of my trees, I had the feeling Summer was long gone. I am fine with it. We had a lovely Summer but I am ready for all things Autumn. Cool days, football, baking and one pot meals.  Catching up. A big event that my daughter and I attend in August is called Chicks and Chaps. A fundraiser for breast cancer. But they actually support all cancers. It consists of a Rodeo clinic, tasty food and drink and even tastier cowboys. We always have such a great t ..read more

I am sitting here with my cat on my lap in the quiet of my home and I feel so contented.  I just finished mowing and watering my flower pots. This year will go down in history for the best flowers. I have to give credit to the heat and everyday watering. They are huge!   Though I am grateful that we are now back down into the high 70's and have gotten some much needed rain. And the smoke has cleared from the air. Our night time temps are now in the 40's and there is a hint of autumn in the air. My Burning Bush has a pink glow to it. And I found my first red leaves from my Autumn ..read more

Oregon!

I was still hemming and hawing a month before on whether we should go. Covid was still happening and tho we were both vaccinated, how safe would we be? How were the airlines handling it? Was Oregon even open? Well, I did my research and we took a leap of faith. And everything worked out. Alaska Air was wonderful, masks required and our flight was only half full. Once we got to Oregon, we could relax. Our stores and restaurants were open and masks were being worn everywhere. Sigh of relief. I felt safe.  Now for the pics! We got our rental car and for the week we were from Tennessee...lol ..read more

I am so drowsy. It is hot out! For about 3 weeks it has been sunny and in the 90's. I try and get up early, but I am no early riser. And I tend my yard and flower pots. Lots of watering. Everything is looking good and I am happy with the design. I hide inside with my AC and read and keep up on my politics.  From my seat, there is a lot of lovely green and birds to soothe me, after the politics...lol    I never got a June post in since we were away the end of the month, in Oregon. Not much happened in June. I planted flowers and took care of some pesky medical procedures. Let m ..read more

A sigh of well being. From where I sit I see new snow on my mountains. It looks like it's going to rain a bit more today and it is rather cool. I even have the fireplace on. My cat is curled in a tight ball and earlier looked at me like it was me who made all the nice weather disappear. I keep telling her it will come back soon.  My world is now very green with dashes of shades of purple. So pretty and it smells great. I finally had blooming tulips and the forget-me-nots are going crazy all over the back yard. I began work on my garden beds and got out most of my yard art before bad weat ..read more

Today is a bit rainy and cool. But I see Green Fuzzies starting! Spring is taking her sweet old time this year but can you blame her? I kind of want to hide out still too. Take one introvert, add a year of staying home, and you get a person who is totally okay with her small circle. I rather like shopping online and there really isn't anywhere that I really have to go. I pick up books curbside at my library and nice people load up my groceries each week. I have gotten really good at cutting my own hair and I have never saved so much money. And with all my extra time I have finally tackled my a ..read more
