Holiday Losses

I was going to share this when I wrote up our Casita Thanksgiving trip and meal but I’m getting the nudge to just put it out there now–hopefully the person(s) who need to see it, will. This year, so many of my friends are suffering the losses of people and pets and homes (due to […]

The Third Day of Christmas Campers

This little glass cloche and the little trees were brought from our old home (in case there weren’t any decorations here at all).  I had a big collection of all kinds of miniature trees that used to decorate the dining room table and Christmas mantle.  I sorted many for give-away when we sold the house […]

The Second Day of Christmas Campers

In the third grade, I learned to fold Origami cranes.  The way life unfolds, there aren’t so many things we learn in grade school that we keep with us as useful tools throughout our lives.  Folding cranes has proven a worthy tool to distract children in waiting rooms, to occupy a group waiting for something […]

The First Day of Homemade Camper Christmas

The leftover supplies in our little temporary rental are somewhat limited.  The scissors a little large, the construction paper a little faded, string and wire in the needed quantity and the needles a wonderful English set, decades old, and only 30 cents!  The tree is probably as old as the sewing needles and the few […]

Merry, Merry and Bright

A Little Egg Music

In life, and camping, it’s all about the folks you meet along the way.  During the last art show I participated in, I was displaying next to the woman who makes these wonderful clay flutes.  Over the hours we shared stories of our dogs and lives and travels.  We started talking about this blog and […]

A New Home Base

Wow!  When I said our next home was an academic pursuit at this point, I was mistaken!  Meet the newly christened Hare In The Moon Ranch.  It’s 180 acres of pure heaven with commanding views of Mount Blanca and the San Luis Valley.  We are pinching ourselves with the velocity of this dream manifestation! I […]

Happy Holidays 2016

However and wherever you spend these closing days of 2016, I wish for you love, joy, warmth and comfort.  May all hearts open wide to send out peace everywhere. I will be publishing a big update after the holidays.  We’ve been very busy these last two months.  Until then, be merry and shine brightly! Ann
