Nebraska Passport Tour Post – 8/25/14

Our 6th weekend of Nebraska Passporting turned out to be an outstanding weekend.  We started out our morning driving to Bertrand’s Countryside Market.  The room off the entrance displayed many lovely Nebraska creations.  The friendly clerk wrote sales receipts, stamped our passports and asked about our trip. The weather turned foggy as we continued on … Continue reading

Nebraska Passport Tour Post – 7/21/14

We got a late start on the Passport Adventure, but thanks to our stay at the Bassett Lodge for a wedding this summer, we got our passports and are enjoying our adventure immensely.  My sister and I were the ones who accepted passports in Bassett, but we are engaging our other sister and cousin to … Continue reading

Since my last post…

My last post was on November 6th – 6 days before my Mom passed away after a three year fight with ovarian cancer.  We mourn her loss and celebrate her life every day since.  As the executor of her estate, I have been busy.  Her house was emptied and sold and the estate is in the closing … Continue reading

The Twelve Mits of Christmas

For the first Mit(ten) of Christmas, my dear friend gave to me, her fave pattern on Ravelry. Since I have been an absent blogger over the summer, I needed an interesting re-entry story. On Monday, the story was “cast” in motion, Tuesday formed the writing pattern and Wednesday the first blog post. The story is … Continue reading

Summer Saturday To-Do Lists

Summer Saturday mornings are an absolute gift.  This morning, the clouds are thick, the southern breeze is cooling and the songbirds are singing in the tree lines as if competing for first place.   As Abbie and I walked this morning, my mind started compiling a to-do list for the day.  I have the WHOLE day to myself … Continue reading

Why I garden

In memory of Dad

Yesterday morning as Abbie and I walked, we saw beautiful wild roses blooming on both sides of the road.  As our day included a celebration of Mom’s birthday, I had been thinking about what type of flowers to put in Mom’s birthday bouquet.  As we walked and continued to see more wild roses, memories of Dad came … Continue reading

Our little piece of heaven

I am having way too much fun with the Panoramic option on my camera.  When Abbie and I went walking this morning, I thought it looked like rain, so wanted to capture an image of the clouds.  Sure enough, we got soaking wet as we ended our walk back to the house.  It was a … Continue reading

Moving on up…

After dropping my phone in the water (again) last week and fighting with the “end call” and “send” buttons that only worked if I opened the keyboard, I decided it was time to move to the next level of technology – the smart phone.  I did my due diligence and started with online research, completed an online chat with … Continue reading
