My Tribute to Roxie Fernandez

January 31, 2018

Roxie was loved by so many and thought about often. Our hearts are filled with so many memories and moments of pure joy. They’re priceless and will never be forgotten, as he will never be forgotten. Roxie was 10 years older then I. I never got to truly know him as my older siblings did. I will remember his smile, that explosive laughter that filled a room, the basketball games in the backyard and small memories we shared.

Rest in peace big brother! You will be missed!

We say Goodbye to Roddy

August 28, 2017

I have friends whom have lost pets and their grief was great. I felt sorrow for/with them but truly didn’t understand their grief until now. I had never lost a pet. Sure I’ve had pets growing up but was no longer living at home when they passed away. I felt sorrow and even teared up a little when mom told me they were gone, they were great dogs.

With every passing day they become a part of your life, your family. They even become a lot like you. I miss this cute face! I even miss all your hair scattered around the house. And all the holes you’ve dug in the yard when you wanted to play. We miss the walks you loved so much and the overly happy greetings with the propeller tail when we returned home.  We miss you so much Roddy! Our grief is deep.

Garden Art #2

July 24, 2017

I got a welder for my birthday this year! The first thing I wanted to make was some yard art but decided to fix my moms patio chairs. With the help of an expert (my hubby) who showed me how to use it.  So I guess I should say “we” fixed moms chairs and made our first yard art project. He loves welding as much as I do… no he loves it more. He learned from his brother Roger. He’s no longer with us but I would say he left a little bit of himself with Bry. Anyway, this is what we made. I found three different votive holder things… hehehe “things” I don’t know what they’re called. Anyway, I took off the holders and welded them together and painted them copper. Thinking I might change the color because they kinda get lost in the garden.


Isn’t it awesome! It stands about 4ft. high. Welding, it’s a wonderful thing! Can’t wait to do my next project!

Mount Evans Trip

July 20, 2017

A trip to beautiful Mount Evans. But first we stopped at a rest stop cause you never know what beauty you might find just off the road and we did!

Then we stopped at a gift shop near Echo Lake.

Here at Mount Goliath you can see the Bristlecone Pines. They are beautifully wind-swept from the high winds and manage to survive the intense solar radiation, cold temperatures.  All this and still live about 2000 years.

On our way to the top we see ….

We made it. Now we climb the next 134 ft.!

Half way there, a look down.

I’m on top of the world looking down on creation! At the top 14,264 ft it’s so beautiful!!!  You have to sit and take it all in! Look at that guy at the tip of my toe, he’s so small.

Don’t forget to ask someone to take a photo of you and your hubby. They are more than happy to do so but remember to return the favor. I take at least five photos of different families cause it’s important to have these moment to remember.


These photos don’t do it justice. You need to take a trip there to see it’s true beauty!







Alice in Wonderland Theme Party

June 28, 2017

My niece graduated this year and her mom gave her a themed party. I got the pleasure of helping her create it. My sister made those signs, clocks and those fabulous hats! I’m like a little kid when it comes to creating fun stuff! And it was all created on recycled cardboard. I found images on-line, used an overhead projector and traced them out. Except for that door knob, I couldn’t find an image so I drew it out. I could have drawn them but who’s got time for that! 🙂 My 81-year-old mom (whom I get my talent from) helped paint along with my granddaughter. My daughter also helped with the backdrop. It was a family affair.

To complete the party I added a photo backdrop.



It was a fun-filled party!
