Welcome, please come inside out of the warm rain and strong winds. I have an assortment of drinks, coffee, tea, juice and chocolate milk. There is a number of different treats, cookies, scones, toast and jam to much on while talk. The weather continues to be strange for this time of year. It is supposed to reach 60° F today. There is very little snow in the mountains for our summer water. This warm temperature will bring the plants out of dormancy and also the insects will hatch.


A lot has happened here since I had time to write. I like to thank all who have followed my blog this month. I would also give a big thanks to all who have been following my blog, especially for views, likes and comments. I try to answer or at least acknowledge all comments. I now have 387 followers, 32,742 views, and 11,944 visitors. I have had 182 comments this year. Thanks to all who have contributed.

    Glad to hear your rash is coming under control. Yes, there does seem to be lot of corn in those meals, I wonder why, as all vegetables are gluten free! Hope all goes well with your husband, I can only imagine giving up the driving is very hard, I hope the caregivers can pitch in to help

  2. Beautiful photos again.
    Keeping you and your husband in my thoughts and hoping you both see improvements in your health.

    Beautiful pictures of warm Idaho. I’m in the foothills just north of Boise, and I must admit, I’m enjoying this weather. I hope your husband is doing better everyday. BTW, I’m no longer on Netgalley, so please send me an email. Thanks!

    • Thanks for the comment about my husband. One of my friends on Cat Channel mention you live in Eagle. I did note you are not in NetGalley, I have read your last book but have not written my review. I hope to have ready when I published the book I read on Tuesday. The review should be on Goodreads sometime this weekend. Thunder clouds in January?
      BTW, Kato crossed over the Rainbow bridge last May. I will let you know when I get the review written.
