No, I don’t mean that sweet, tangy red sauce we all like to dip our fries in—also known as catsup, or ketchup (lol!)—I mean “catching up” on … well … life, I guess! I’ve neglected my poor blog for far too long, other than quick updates about my latest designs, and I am really hoping to remedy that.

Our summer has been very busy, especially with our oldest son getting married and me making the cake for it. Plus my husband’s medical issues that started a year ago are continuing, and we are still trying to get not only a diagnosis but also some sort of disability assistance to help us pay the bills since he hasn’t worked in all that time. I spend a lot of time doing paperwork, making phone calls, sending faxes, and being a little frustrated and overwhelmed, too, at times.

Yet, I truly enjoy the blessings God has put in my life … starting with the blessing of caring for my husband. That service is an honor and a blessing I am thankful for in spite of the situation that we are in. I also am so blessed to start every morning with a stroll through the dewy grass (yes, barefoot! :D) of our front yard, a sit on my porch to drink in the view, and a little time spent with my devotions and prayer journal. The early morning air is so sweet and fragrant, the view is breathtaking, and the nuggets of gold I find in those daily devotions are awe-inspiring. Additionally, I’ve acquired a new talent … I can now estimate the air temperature fairly accurately based upon how quickly my feet reach the point of “painful cold” when strolling barefoot through that dewy grass! lol!

I scrapped a page today that shows a peek of what I get to experience every day here on our little Moose Trail Acres …


Such peace and joy! :)


I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the wildlife around here, as always, and have a couple pics to share.

Seriously, I get *no* respect … even the deer stick out their tongues at me! lol! That doe comes daily to eat wild berries and drink from our pond’s little cascading pools. She has two little twin fawns that are always somewhere close about, and they all would just love to get past our motion-activated sprinklers and eat from my salsa garden! :D My very young moose friend here was strolling down our road just ahead of my Jeep one morning as I headed out. Notice how he turns his head to look at me as if to say, “Nothing to see here, move along!” :D

Well there’s a quick dose of “catchup” from me … how are you all doing? :D

Blessings to ya all! :D
