1 Shot Wednesday: Colorado Aspens

Counting down the days until we head to the Colorado Rockies for some quiet time at a lake cabin. Last time Jim and I went to the San Juan National Forest just north of Durango, we camped outside of Telluride. This time we are trying out Vallecito Lake. There’s giant Pike lurking in the depths, and Jim wants to catch one. I remember as a girl living in Northern Wisconsin; I was awestruck by fishermen coming to shore to clean their catch. With monstrous teeth in a wide mouth, and its length at 1 meter (3 and some feet), Pikes are predators and scavengers. Let him fish. I’m kayaking and taking pictures of Aspen trees. Stay tuned!

1 Shot Wednesday: Fall Hike

In the last two weeks, much has happened in my world. Guess which events are true and which are false:

  1. An unfit mother discards her daughter.
  2. A grandmother becomes a mother.
  3. A mother discovers a mass on her spine.
  4. A mother to many becomes the mother of a puppy.
  5. A mother’s book is published.

All of the above statements are true. I have been overwhelmed with the sudden squall that has slapped me in the face. I wish I could say I have seen movies and read books and have the time to blog about them. Instead, for the time being, I will have to enjoy your posts from afar.

I can share a photo of a recent hike in the woods at Flagstaff.
