Mother's Day.....................

What it means to me.  My mother Elrose.  This is her probably 1945.  Her birthday May 13, many times fell on Mother's Day.  Of course it's impossible to think of Mother's Day without thinking of her.  

Nor is it  possible to think of it without thinking of my precious daughters,, my joy in being on this earth.   

Cathy, Amanda, and Brenda along with my Mother's pets.  Pets have always been in our life and we're richer for it.  Cathy is the mother of two girls, They are all mothers of pets.  
Happy Mother's Day to all of us. 

                   And this is my little child now.  Rascal who is now 11.  We have to have somebody close to love and cuddle.  He's not much on the cuddling but he's devoted and gives joy to my life.  I hope I give him joy, too.

Joyous Day

I've been sick for a few days but yesterday was worth it.  It was a perfectly wonderful day.  The sun was brilliant, the grass was so green and it seemed like everyone I ran into was happy.  I guess that I've just described happiness.  Every day is like that if we allow it, if we give ourselves to God and live in His love.  I pray that you would be so blessed today.                            Diane

Easter Sunday........

Here is Emerson, 17 months old already.  Today she's a butterfly.  Below is her brother Tatum, the Easter Bunny brought him trucks. They were both a joy and made me laugh.   I think they both had a wonderful time.  My family was down from Billings and my friend, Janet was here.  It was a beautiful, sunny, warm day and the first time I've had Easter at my house for quite a while,  I really hope yours was great.    God bless, Diane

Time Does Fly..........

Here it is the 18th already.  Seems like it was only yesterday that we set our clocks ahead, really!  The weather is milder here but very unpredictable.  I've been trying to clean up the winter debris of the yard bt it's very slow going.  Rascal is a great help, though.  He's always there with me.  I love this little dog.
I hope you have a great weekend wherever you live.

Coming to life.....

Listen.  Are you breathing just a little and calling it a life?
             -Mary Oliver 

I kind of felt like that all winter.  But now we can get outside, at least for a few days, feel the sunshine on my face and begin living outside again.  So revitalizing.  There are still some drifts around the yard but much to do while they melt.  

P.S. I've decided to pick up my blog An Artist's Life again.  Not sure you can switch to it from here but I'm working on it.

No more snow pictures this year.................

Time for color.  I know these are from the archives but I thought
you might need some color, too.
I ran across a couple quotes I love -"to begin begin".  (author
unknown)  and "Inspiration comes, but it must find you
working' -Picasso, and my all time favorite - 'Let us then
be up and doing' - Longfellow

I'm breathing a sigh of relief tonight. I had been holding my breath because the old chicken house (shown in the background) was in danger of collapsing from the huge amount of snow on the roof.  Although they are newer the patio roof and carport also had a lot of snow on them.  Today I was blessed with all of them being cleaned off.  Whew!  We have received so much snow this winter and it's still snowing. This is pretty unusual even for Wyoming.  Several times since before Christmas I've been snowed in.  I keep telling myself when it's 105 degrees I'm going to miss this snow and cold weather.  That's the topic of conversation here, and now we're wondering what's going to happen when it melts.  I guess we'll find out.  Hope all is good with you.  Blessings, Diane
