Welcome 2018 (Not Our Typical Winter)

This winter, here in Utah, there’s been more golfing than skiing. While the temps feel nice, we need more moisture for a green summer. The good news is we have a snow storm on its way. Welcome news!


I went to the dentist today, for my six-month check up. My dentist poked out a filling so my visit was extended while he replaced it. Sigh. At least I had no cavities.


It’s so much fun to spot deer in the neighborhood.


Here’s a question for all you WordPress bloggers- Have you ever had an issue where your likes on other blogs have disappeared? Mine seem to be doing that!


My January goals are off to a flying start. I’ve worked out every day this week so far. My husband created a spreadsheet showing all of our expenses from last year so we know where to cut back, plus we’ve been meeting with financial advisors. And, Marcus and I have been reading Nightmares! The Sleepwalker Tonic together. We are enjoying this kid series by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller.

This is one of the first photos my baby girl has emailed me from her mission. She’s been out a week now and she adjusting to MTC (missionary training center) life. She says the food is good, the teachers nice and patient, and she gets along great with her first companion. Prayers on her behalf are deeply appreciated. She will be in the MTC for six to eight weeks to learn Spanish and then she will be off to her first assigned area of her mission (Cusco).

Sunset Wanderings in My Backyard


One of my favorite things to do in the country is to take a sunset stroll.


This evening, my daughter meandered with me. We wonder how long this machinery has been resting on this spot?


As we ambled along, we babbled about any and everything that popped into our noggins.


Even weeds can be delightful on a country lane in the gloaming.


As we moseyed back to our homestead, I counted my blessings. I am thankful to be country girl.
