Rocky Mountain National Park

We were blessed to have our grandson's wedding in early June. The fire started that day and was just one white plume of smoke. We went up into the Park on Sunday and it was just beautiful. Now I understand a great deal has been burned. What a shame. But most of all, it is terrible that many people have lost their homes and more may lose their homes before they get the fire under control. There is so much dead wood and trees to keep feeding the fire. My cousin in Denver says the wind carries the burning embers along, spreading the fires worse.

Colorado Fires

The fires are burning out of control out west. And there are so many of them. Our grandson was married above Estes Park and I heard this morning that a number of structures have been burned near there and sounds like it getting closer to Estes Park. My cousin lives in Denver and she said the winds are spreading the sparks and there seems to be no stopping the fires. They are burning in several States out west. He was married on June 9, and I think it was just in the nick of time. Scary.

No Email

They talk about people being lost without their cell phones. Well, I think it is even worse or just as bad when you can't get into your email. Someone hacked in and took over but I am getting it fixed by experts. It should never happen again. Guard your passwords with your life. They are very important.

Grandson's Wedding

I got to ride along out to Colorado with my son-in-law, daughter, and little 4 yr old great granddaughter to attend their youngest son's wedding way above Estes Park. It was magnificent. They were the first couple to be wed in the new outdoor chapel up there. At first it was breathtaking and I do mean that. The day before the wedding we walked up to the building and I had to sit and let my heart slow down. The next day it was much better as was more used to the high altitude.

Colorado Mountains

We went to our grandson's wedding in Estes Park last week. It was such a beautiful drive up to where they were married. They were the first couple to be married in this new wedding place. It was so much fun and little hummingbirds were flying around right in front of them to the flowers while they were being married. It was amazing.

Craft Supplies

It seems like everyone is scrapbooking these days. In shopping the Internet I discovered a great place to get craft supplies. My neighbor does a lot of craft work with her daughter and is always looking to save some money on her craft supplies. By ordering off the Internet, she can get fast shipping right to her door. That goes for my daughter and daughter-in-law too as they are making graduation scrapbooks for the grandchildren that are graduating soon. It is great to find a place with a large assortment of everything for every craft.

Rustic Bathroom Vanities

Having a cabin in the woods, rustic bathroom vanities would be just the thing to make your bathroom a showplace. There are so many beautiful styles to choose from and FREE shipping if you spend over $119. In shopping the Internet, I found such a delightful choice of rustic vanities for our farm home. And something I really like is that they are made in the good old USA. Too much is shipping in from other countries and we make good products in this country, products that will stand the wear and tear.

The Old Tire Swing

Remember the days of the old tire swing? We had one and we used it a great deal every summer and even in the winter sometimes. It is a simple way to provide lots of fun for children and inexpensive too. Here you see two of the great grandchildren having the time of their lives playing on the tire swing. There is so much nice room to run and play on the farm.

Almost makes you wish you were a kid again.
