Hello! And greetings from Montrose! We’ve made it back to our little house on wheels, but wanted to give you the low-down on our wonderful three weeks at The Cabin.
But you knew it’d be grand, didn’t you? We had enough picture perfect Vermont days to cancel out the cool and rainy ones, and most of the other days , while maybe not crystal clear, but were winners nonetheless! We were blessed with lots of company – a sweet youngster (21!) that we met on a SOWER project , my college roommate & hubby, friends from when our kids were small who now live in VT (who we even put to work), cousins from Gary’s side, SOWER friends who came for a mid-week weekend, and a wonderful day with all of our Vermont family.
But all of our wonderful company aside, I bet you’re wondering what Gary was up to. Right? Well, as usual, he kept himself plenty busy! Continue reading Dear Joie & Fitz
If last summer (spent on the West Coast) was all about experiencing uncharted (for us) territories, this summer has been all about reconnecting with dear friends and establishing new relationships.

and I need an extension.
One would think, having just completed a WRITERS conference, that one would be able to put a couple of words together to describe the event. You know, like bloggers are supposed to do!
Well, yesterday the 2017 Montrose Christian Writers Conference wrapped up. I am still in major processing mode about all the information that I learned (actually it’s more like information overload ), the friends that I made (such delight!) and the encouragement I received (oh, my!). Continue reading Trying to process….
1. We were blessed to have another SOWER couple working with us last month. Darla & I worked on folding sheets and some sewing projects while Ed helped Gary in the Dorm Basement renovations.
Loved having them here!
2. The Dorm Basement project is complete! Ok, so not complete-complete like campers will be staying there, but the new doors are in, wiring is done, the ductwork is installed and the upstairs (where campers WILL be staying next week) is all good to go.
Which is a very good thing, ‘cause, you know – those campers arriving this weekend.
3. When Becky (head of housekeeping and essentially my boss) asked me to make some covers for the laundry carts, she assured me that she had a pattern.
