goodbye summer

A new season…my favorite…begins with September’s arrival. Oh, I know. I know.  It’s not really autumn yet, and the triple digit days are likely to hang on into October, but in my head and in my heart summer is over. It’s been a strange summer here at the cottage. It’s been a season of reflection…

welcome summer

 Love conquers all June has arrived in our garden. Summer follows quickly on her heels. Yesterday I awoke later than usual, and found the most beautiful bouquet waiting for me on the counter. This is what happens when someone loves you unconditionally. Even though I’d been miserable and grouchy ever since taking a sinus pill before bed…

caring

Understand something—when I care about you, I genuinely care. But when I stop caring—you no longer exist. unknown Oh how I wish this were true! When I saw this quote on z-fb-wall the other day, for just a moment it tickled my funny-bone. My sense of humor is wacky anyway—think I’ve said that before. When…

the ark

Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah’s Ark… One- Don’t miss the boat. Two- Remember, we are all in the same boat. Three- Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark. Four- Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big. Five- Don’t listen…

welcome 2014

“Life is like a bicycle to keep your balance you must keep moving” _Albert Einstein Hello 2014, How welcome you are! A new year. A blank page. 2013 went out with a cough and a sniffle for me. Not at all what was planned, but for the past several years that’s been the story of my…

farewell 2013

So overflowing is his kindness toward us that he took away all our sins through the blood of his Son, by whom we are saved;  and he has showered down upon us the richness of his grace—for how well he understands us and knows what is best for us at all times. God has told…

day 40 of 40

…”Actually, I don’t have a sense of needing anything personally. I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I’ve found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever…

bloggers viewpoint

As I’ve mentioned before – any day I don’t learn something new is a sad day.  That’s one of my personal points of view. Today I learned a new word. Yahoo quoted a news anchor who called a prominent politician a ”bloviating ignoramus.” I’m mostly not into news..none of it’s good. I’m into the Good News about…

three kinds of friends

“I have three kinds of friends: those who love me, those who pay no attention to me, and those who detest me.” _Sebastien-Roch Nicolas de Chamfort (1741-94) French Writer Well…honestly I have four kinds of friends. Besides the friends who pay no attention to me and the ones who detest me—those are the friends I…

horsein’ around

I’ve always loved horses. It’s in my blood. Granddad Cline raised horses for the United States Calvary when my Daddy was a boy. They ranched in Saguache, Colorado, where Granddad was one of the first Forest Rangers in the Rio Grande National Forest. His photo hangs in the Saguache County Museum, cheek by jowl with that infamous Colorado…
