Musings On A Stormy Day

Stormy DayIt’s a stormy day in our part of the Pacific Northwest.  Rain is beginning to pelt down (again!) and the winds are fierce in places.  At my home it is windy with occasional very strong gusts - gusts that make me want to run and capture whatever may suddenly decide to take off flying.  It appears everything here is secure and I pray that those around our region will be safe from the storm.  I’m prepared – my candles and oil lamps (and flashlights and battery-operated reading lights) are close at hand.  There is plenty of firewood waiting to make a cozy fire in the fireplace later this evening.

Some have asked if I’ve posted more since my blog was returned to me.  Or, are there still problems?  And word of a new blog-in-process has leaked out.  I can answer each of these questions for you!

No, I have not posted anything since I shared that my blog access had been restored.  There have been no more problems with my blog - life has taken me in many directions and I’ve not had time to settle in and post a thing over the past days.  The summer has been extremely busy.  I’ll share in more detail soon. 

We celebrated our youngest granddaughter’s first birthday. . .
Brynlee's First BirthdayThere was a wonderful visit from a dear, out-of-state cousin and outings to favorite places, including a trip to my favorite mountain. . .Mount HoodA campout with girlfriends in a beautiful place one recent weekend. . .Coburg Campout - TrailerA day trip with dear, long-time friends. . .DaytripAnd a visit to a wonderful camp where disabled kids can just be kids and their families can have a bit of time away for relaxation.Camp Attitude Sign See the Smiley Face in the wheelchair? Everything at this camp is structured to put smiles on the faces and laughter in the hearts of the kids and their families.


Yes, there is a new blog in my future.  It is currently in the design stage and will be revealed sometime in the near future.

Over the next days I plan to share more about each of the things I’ve mentioned here.  There is so much I’d like you to know about where I’ve been and what I’ve done – it’s just too good to keep to myself!


  1. Looking forward to learning more of your new blog :)

  2. You have been busy. Looking forward to hearing more about the new blog.

  4. My goodness...I've been away from reading blogs since we've been busy getting the new house ready to move into...
    I didn't know you had lost your blog.
    Oh dear...I would have died, right there on the spot.
    My question is, why does everyone want their own domain...? It seems so many bloggers have gotten into trouble changing from to .net or .com....I just haven't figured out why the change...??
    ANYway, sure glad things are ok with your blog now.

  5. I've been wondering how you've been doing! It looks like you've been busy. And I'm looking forward to the new blog!

  6. Well now I'm really looking forward to seeing the new blog and hearing about your summer:>)

  7. I've missed your posts and am glad you're back, :)


I am grateful that you stopped by to visit me. Your kind and gracious comments are appreciated and treasured.
