Montana Painting

One of my college friends is an artist who paints from the heart. She took a simple photo of mine and presto… it became a beautiful painting. You can find Sandy’s paintings at Sandy Donn on Etsy and she writes a beautiful blog filled with her paintings and her feelings about them. Sandy’s Blog I […]

The Hidden Painting

For as long as I can remember my grandmother had a stack of unused paintings stacked in the bedroom designated for the grandkids. The closet was a typical small closet for a house built in 20s and it was very stark and clean with a few toys on shelves to the left and on the […]

A few weeks ago my friend, again, brought a special rescue to come live a happy life at his new forever home. Meet Chase! He is a tri-colored Aussie who was rescued in […]

A Second That Changed My Life

Disclaimer: This event happened to Cowboy and I this past weekend. This is very “dark” and not like my usual upbeat posts. I am sharing in hopes to help all my friends become more aware of life events which can possibly become dangerous. You will understand that this post must be vague as I cannot […]

Food For My Soul

I spent the last year putting most of my energy into recovering from my barn accident last April. I am finally doing really well. Some days I still have a limp, but I am trying hard to walk without one. I am not totally “there” yet, but I think each month is bringing me to my desired goal. […]

Off The Grid

I have been off the social media grid. Those who really know me might even be alarmed for they know I rarely go a day without being active on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email or blogging. It just does not happen. The last few weeks have been crazy busy. Friends in hospital. Errands past due. Cleaning out […]
