Wow, it’s hard to imagine a month has passed since my last blog post. WordPress recently announced my 7-year blog anniversary. What a way to celebrate that milestone–it’s like I put a sign in the window ‘Closed for Hibernation.’ Except I forgot to post the sign and went right to sleep. 

To be honest, recent software updates require me to sign in and get an authenticator code every time I leave a comment. Sometimes, the comment I had written disappears. It’s been a bit frustrating, so I’m trying to overcome that and still maintain security of online accounts. If you haven’t heard from me lately and have a Facebook account, please look me up and send a friend request:

I’m hoping
 to read and comment on your blog there. 

We missed three of the grandkids’ birthdays in January. Blizzard conditions and ten inches of snow kept us from traveling north the first week; hubby’s job and then his cold kept us home later on.


He was such a sweetie to make a path to the feeders.

One of the squirrels dug down to find buried seeds next to the birdbath.

The Song Sparrow was happy about that!

I managed to get to necessary appointments, but it’s been eight weeks since I’ve seen my hair stylist. The longer look is growing on me… 

My daughter, Suzanne, joined an online art journal group. We’ve been working on projects ‘together’ via text messages. This is the mini binder cover I decorated to hold my photography lesson cards. 


Saturday, I made rosettes from scrapbook paper.

I’m looking forward to bunny-sitting this week. I can’t wait to introduce you to Midnight!  

That’s a brief summary of 2018, thus far. I look forward to hearing from you as I’ve missed our regular online visits. 






Share Your World–June 6, 2017

Share Your World

Welcome to my world:


Once again it is time to SHARE YOUR WORLD! Here are Cee’s questions, let’s see if we can answer them! 

What’s your strongest sense?

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)
Hmm, that could be a different identity for each day of the week. Today, I’ll be Happy.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?
I’d like to go back to when I had eyebrows. Not sure when they disappeared…

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.  [Remember:  This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.]
This is a tough one, I’m still thinking…

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful to have a wonderful church and pastoral staff; looking forward to family time.

I hope you’ll share your answers, too!
