Tales from our travels

Dear Joie & Fitz

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

First Day of Vacay

God gave us a wonderful gift for our first day of our Cabin Vacation – RAIN!

Although it didn’t rain ALL day, it certainly rained for the better part of it and kept us inside. It ruled out getting started on any projects (other than unpacking) and MADE us sit still and read and take naps.

which reinforced our divine directive to step back and be still.
Then, as we were enjoying a bit of a snooze, we heard some noises on the back lawn. Continue reading First Day of Vacay

Before we go

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.

Yes, it has been a very good summer! Before we head out tomorrow for several weeks at our beloved Cabin in Vermont (little happy dance here), I thought it was time to do a bit of a wrap-up of our Montrose Summer. Continue reading Before we go

Mile 92658.3

That’s the number on our motorhome’s odometer.
“Wait. That’s all??”
“How many years have you been traveling?”
“We just finished our thirteenth year.”
“Is that the rig you started with?”
“Yep.”
“I’m surprised it’s not higher.”

And so it goes. That is actually a respectable 7100+ RV miles per year for(on average) and even if it doesn’t seem like much, it’s been enough for us to

Trying to process….

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….
