In Another Life~   Leave a comment


In another life I envisioned myself as a artist.

I love the idea of being able to draw.

My mother was able to draw as can my eldest daughter Paula and my son Matt.

I have tried.

I have bought books to teach me how to draw…..but it all falls flat.


What a wonderful gift to have.

This is a Bob Ross Painting.

I use to watch him for hours as a kid.

I even bought a small painting of his and it hangs in my den.

To have that kind of talent…..would be a dream…..

Of course I would love to be able to write novels and have people think they were wonderful too.

The creative gene just didn’t pass me by, it rushed rapidly on to someone more lucky than I.

Owls~   Leave a comment

49618c9dc863106a1e5d2b9f3a7c4715          My sister Kathy loves owls.

I have one that our eldest sister made that I have been meaning to give Kathy but always seem to forget every time I see her.

I have a puzzle I just finished of an owl too that I may give her.

Depends on weather or not she actually wants it.

So I Read~   Leave a comment


I read somewhere that when you see a cardinal, it means an angel has come to visit.

I like the idea of that.

I see a cardinal and sometimes more than one every few days here at my home.
We have a bird feeder in our front yard and the cardinal does come to eat as do many other birds.

I like thinking Cyndi, Mom, Linda, Grandma Hestness, Sandy or anyone else who has passed stops by in the form of a cardinal.

My Love Of Winter~   Leave a comment



I have a thing for pictures of snow and falling snow.

I love winter.

I am not a fan of below freezing temperatures or ice, but I do love the season of winter.

And I love the beauty of it

Seven Years Ago~   Leave a comment


Seven years ago my sister Kathy and I were in the beautiful state of Colorado.

Colorado Rockies

It seems a lot longer than that……

Hopefully next year we can all go again, my sisters, nieces and I.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow~   Leave a comment

So I am doing a bit of cleaning today.

Cleaning out my dresser and putting some summer clothes away and getting fall and winter clothes out.
Yes it may be a bit early but it is something to do and it needs done eventually.

I would love to be working in my yard, but all it does is rain so there is no being outside today.

I found a old journal that I began in 2016

It was before my sister Cyndi passed away.

Before Ava was born…..

I enjoy reading things I wrote years ago.
It takes me back to that time….

I should try and write in one every day but….this blog is sort of a journal in itself.

I titled this Somewhere over the rainbow……because in the journal I asked “What would make me happy?”

The answer is quite simple.

That everyone believed in God and that everyone treated everyone else with respect.

There would be no murder, no harming of children….no political people who are just out for themselves and not our country.

There would be a cure for cancer.

There would be happiness all around.

As Elvis once said in a song “If every day could be just like Christmas…..what a wonderful world this would be”

I would love to be thinner, but I am working on that.

I would love to have more money too but until I get a few things paid off, I will just have to keep on struggling with that.

I want to retire and hopefully I can by the time I am sixty.
Sooner if possible.


Somewhere over the rainbow….in a perfect world… an unattainable reach……things would be so much better.

Love would conquer hate.

People would treat each other like they wanted to be treated.

In a perfect world………….
