After waking to a dark, early morning, heavy spring snow – the sun has come out to create a picturesque day. The dogs and I just walked the nature trail.

Hope & Joy
Preparing a colorfully pleasing, tasty
and healthy meal is so satisfying!
Bless us, Oh Lord, and these thy gifts
which we are about to receive from thy bounty,
through Christ, Our Lord.
Who knew this March 8th ritual would be our last social gathering for…indefinitely.
I was born in New Orleans which is famous for jazz music, Po’ Boy sandwiches, seafood, bakeries and maybe most of all, Mardi Gras or Carnival as we sometimes called the pre-Lenten season.
There are parades for about two weeks before the beginning of Lent, which is on Ash Wednesday, climaxing on Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday.
Every aspect of this Extra, extraordinary blue-sky day is to be celebrated!
Snow is a gift of free art supplies dropped from the sky!
*** Lake City – what a great little mountain village ~!!
Hot dog grilling and marshmallow roasting were part of the snowman building contest this beautiful blue-sky day!!!
Lifting the shade the other morning left me in awe as the glowing, picturesque crescent moon was coming over the mountain top. I smiled. I stood still enjoying the moment. I hurried to grab my camera and the moment.
It’s been said that the Moon represents powerful feminine energy; signifying wisdom, intuition, birth, death, reincarnation, and a spiritual connection.
After getting a number of both enjoyable and constructive things checked off THE LIST last Saturday, Sunday was full of fun activities!!!
Our friends Ed and June ‘don’t do any kind of social media.’ Pictured are: Sylvia and Bill, Erin, Don (almost catholic J), myself – terrible posture and my husband, Bruce.
Taking into consideration what is in our control and what is not, I think this is the best time of life, as is living up here in the mountains, in Lake City, Colorado. I always find it interesting from people who are considering moving up here full time, wondering what the heck do we do in the winter!
The ‘Let’s be neighbors’ sign in front of Get Some Groceries, in our little village, gives me hope. It is acknowledged worldwide that now is absolutely an extremely hard time for our nation.
The hopefulness in the banner simply comes from seeing each other as human beings.
