Peaceful Still Waters


Less than two months of intense medical care and we had to say goodbye after five years. A peaceful passing closed the final chapter of a fully lived life of 86 years.  Yes, a handsome man who acted and looked younger than his years and was in excellent health most of his life. It was special to be "The Love Of His Life" even with the rough edges of life's demons that came to haunt us so often. Look at that beautiful smile, he was so happy when he could be with me!


Rest In Peace

3/22/1928-----12/30/2014

I am a different person and perhaps better for having known you at this time in my life. Thank You!




PEACE AND LOVE.

Apple Pie

Being of a certain age - gives pictures like this special meaning to me. There was a brief period - ten years - of my life when I was blessed to be able to fully and completely enjoy the joys of creating a warm and loving home for my family of four. It was a joyous time! I feel so fortunate that I have been given that experience that I can reflect on with a smile. I treasure the many things that I learned and continue to enjoy every day.

That said, let's make an Apple Pie!


The grocery store had some lovely Honey Crisp Apples that had just been brought in. Living in the mountains can mean that you don't always have the freshest fruits and veggies. 

Please enjoy with me this picture of all these pretty apples!


These are my beautiful apples!


Stay tuned - next time you see them - they will be in a homemade Apple Pie!

Take a Minute to Slow Down - - - and Breathe.
