New Year’s Day 2022

WORKING AT LIFE

 

 

New Year’s Day 2022 this is my view in our tiny mountain village at 9,000 feet. Most people just want to visit in the summer. So this peacefulness is blessed.

 

 

What’s MOST IMPORTANT to me:

 

Continually:

 

Connecting with my husband

 

Staying healthy – physically, mentally, spiritually

 

Publishing my work & connecting with my readers

 

 

 

I don’t know if I can keep up this pace but my goal is to keep at it:

 

 

Christmas Eve service with husband

                                                                                                                 

 

 

New Year’s Eve dinner with husband – shared my gratitude jar entries for 2021 and we laughed, remembered and were thankful

 

 

 

We shared dessert – I took 1 bite of each

 

 

 

Husband & I are continually working at us.

We Get By With A Little Help From Our Friends

I live with my husband and our dogs at 9,000 feet in a tiny mountain village, in the Colorado Rockies. Life here isn’t easy but those of us who live here do so because we really like it.

Before COVID , (we are always going to be saying that) a gathering of us girlfriends was a regular occurrence.

A New Grandchild

Love is universal.                                            

My husband and I just became new grandparents! It is deeply sacred, knowing that now, we are always connected with  this child. I shared this happy news with numerous of supportive girlfriends.

 

There are other people, who would call me their friend, yet who would disapprovingly judge my daughter and perhaps me as well.

We live up in the mountains

LIVING in a little mountain village

 Susie, “It sounds very romantic writing up in the mountains.”

Me smiling, “It is. Especially in the cold months with all the noisy visitors gone and a warm fire softly crackling as I drink hot coffee and write for long stretches uninterrupted.

Play Day

We took a much needed play day yesterday

We live in an extraordinary beautiful party of the world and too often we stay at home to work at the endless chores and responsibilities

About a 40 minute drive from home we had a picnic lunch

cid:<a href=Carefully, happily, we wadded across the freezing cold, slippery, rocky, riverbed

 

Stunning blue-sky day

Springtime in the Rockies

Blue sky in one direction

A snowstorm in the opposite direction

The perennials should be very happy!

Our border collie is so proud to lunge for the geese and make them fly. Soon though, they learn that she’s not getting in the water and much to Hope’s chagrin, they ignore her.
