Well HELLO. It’s been a very long time since I posted on this blog, nearly a year! Interestingly, I’ve noticed many of the blogs I follow are in the same place, not posting, not sharing. I’m not sure what that’s about and certianly can only speak for myself. I could say I’ve been busy, we all are! I could say I have lost interest….that is probably true. But let’s just move along.
I feel like I’ve been in a fog since last year. Some highlights….In June we went to Pacific City, a place we love so much!! the rest of the summer was lake trips and smoke. Seriously, that’s what I remember most from last summer. Wildfires in the west, both locally and not so local, (CA and BC) filled our air with smoke. Maybe I was in a fog?!
In late August my son and I journeyed to Austin TX for a lovely family wedding on Labor Day weekend! It was a wonderful trip and such a beautiful wedding!
We added another pup to our family. Born in September, we picked him up November 1st! Meet our boy ‘Gansett! He has the same mother as Mae but his father is a red and white Border Collie, smooth coat. He is a sweet boy!
My only other comment today will be this….”life is confusing and people are insane”
I will fill in the blanks soon! let’s catch up~

I hope 2016 is treating you well so far! Since my last post, we have had a huge amount of snow! At one point we had 9 feet in 7 days! That resulted in road closures, a power outage and lots of snow clearing! But the power came back on Christmas eve and Christmas morning the highway reopened so we were all able to be together, the best gift of all!!
I spend nearly every morning playing outside with Mae. She is loving the snow! It’s fun to have such an energetic companion! It gets my day off to a good start.

I’m not the resolution making type. Sometimes I make goofy resolutions, “Buy more shoes” or “wear more dresses”. And often, I wish that it was a new year 40 years previous! If I woke up and it was 1976 well, that would be awesome! The fact is, that 40 years has been an eye blink. How do you slow it down? Sigh. Well, make great moments happen! My best moment so far? A great big snowboarding turn in fresh snow ~ beautiful! What’s your best moment of 2016? Got one yet? I sure hope you have lots of them! cheers~
Perhaps I do have too much time on my hands today. You think? What better way to spend it than playing in the snow with Mae!
Our lake days are fading fast as the water recedes further and further. It is used for irrigation east of the mountains and this year with low snow pack, it hasn’t filled up as the water is drained out, so, we are about a month ahead with very low water. However, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t still enjoying cooling off and paddling around on these very hot days! And Mae, our 5 month old pup, is especially enjoying it!
I hope that summer is treating you well! Keep cool and enjoy!
We have a new hiking partner in our family! Her name is Mae.
