An afternoon spent among the trees in the Jemez Mountains

Last weekend we had a couple of hours to wander thru the Jemez mountains to take in the glory of the fall colors. It was fabulous. Mr. Snickers came along. He loves adventuring in the jeep. Our Molly does NOT! So, Mr. Snickers puts on his traveling scarf, jumps in for a ride while Molly…

“Tucked In”

Tucked in, snug up against protective mountains, sitting next to a warm fire, while snow ¬†softly falls. In the high mountains where I grew up, it was the most satisfied feeling at the end of a hard working fall season. It’s good when all the hay has been cut and hauled, the harvest has been…

Writers Block and Mornings with Molly

If you follow my blog, you’ve no doubt noticed that up until the last couple of weeks, I hadn’t been writing very much. Of course, my life can get a little out of hand with the kiddos’ health problems but, it was more than that. I had difficulty finding something I wanted to say. I…

The sound of the wind howling overhead, carrying with it the wolfs soulful song, becomes a part of your very being.

Mornings With Molly

“Love Among the Trees”

    Let’s stand in a forest of aspen trees my love. If we keep quiet and still, we will hear them sing their beautiful quaking song. Aspen trees are also known as “quakies or quakers” because, when the wind ruffles their leaves there is a soft quaking sound. It’s a lovely sound. This painting…

On the Move Again? Perhaps, but not very far.

It was about five years ago, when we knew, we would need to make some changes. As many of you know, our kiddo was diagnosed with T.Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia almost 16 years ago. He survived this terrible disease and how grateful we are! However, about five years ago he started to have serious health…
