Happy Birthday to my Husband today! We had a great time in Estes Park!
Cabin on the Big Thompson River....rain, ducks, river overflowing it's banks, walks in the rain, Elk grazing along the road...we just didn't know what to expect next. Lots of fun! Calls from the kids and grand daughters.....Priceless!
How old would you be if you didn't know your age? My guess for my husband...17!
Love you.

Happy Friday everyone! This beautiful night sky was taken at Horsetooth reservoir last weekend.We sure enjoy Colorado's beautiful nature.
I hope you have a happy weekend.

Here will we sit
and let the sounds of music
creep in our ears:
soft stillness and the night
become the touches of
sweet harmony.

Happy Rosy Monday. Aren't these roses gorgeous! We've got so many beautiful blooms happening right now. I feel inspired to paint Flowers today!!

I hope you find joy in the great things of life-
but also in the little things. A flower, a song, a butterfly
on your hand.

...One more thing to share before the weekend kicks off! My mini pies I just took out of the oven. Don't ask me why but I bought six little pie tins at the thrift store for $1.00 and now I'm obsessed with baking cute little mini pies.
Same as a big pie, just perfect for two. We're going to see some friends tomorrow and I'll take a couple for dessert....they're so cute.

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have a fun weekend planned.
This picture is of my darling Grand daughters having fun coloring a giant picture on the floor. I love their free thinking. Just thinking of them brings a smile to my face.

I'll leave you with this quote:

The world is but canvas
to our imagination.

A very arty little hand painted clutch/wallet hand painted by me!
Just added to my etsy site
Hello dear readers and happy Wednesday. Yesterday I had the honor of picking up a wonderful lady from the Denver airport who I met for the first time, her name is Judith and she's from Uganda. I volunteer at a non profit in Boulder called Bead for Life. Judith is interviewing for a job with BFL. What a joy it was to meet and talk with Judith, to learn about her family and the job she may take with BFL in Uganda. What a lovely person she is
and a blessing to meet.

Property is not essential,
but Happiness,
A love of beauty,
Friendship between all peoples
and individuals,
is life itself.
