...a road less traveled

We are back from Norway... it's hard to describe it in words.
To come home after 19 years is truly an experience.
I spoke 3 languages for the 17 days we were gone- connected to my roots and my familia.
 New beginnings.
Celebrating new beginnings here...I am moving, this space is no longer where I am....
continuing my journey
Please join me on the other side.

Sometimes things just work out.
For the past days I have been wanting to make some new dish clothes
 lucky me!
 I found some vintage Sugar & Cream cotton yarn at the thrift store.

Happy Happy Happy

...when one door opens

Many things came to a final this month.
Summer vacation!
Kids are finally out of school and no more driving 780 miles these next months-
My mom came to visit us for a month
 always a highlight in my year to be with her
the neat thing is I don't have to wait to see her for another 6 mos
( Actually I am seeing her and my whole familia next month)
I am going home to
in July
It's been 19 years!

Something that has been a big cloud hanging over my head
since the beginning of the year is slowly coming to an end.
I was victim of check fraud.
 A local woman and 4 other accomplice had stolen my newly ordered box of checks from my mailbox.
We live in the country so the mailboxes are by the road.
They had helped themselves to all the checks and written out THOUSANDS of dollars
 that would have potentially ruined my credit and needless to say drained my account.
If it wasn't for the amazing ladies at the bank that helped refund my money.
 There have been numerous sheriffs here at the house
 been working with a detective for the past months
I have never felt so violated in my life!
She/they stole my identity- she had several id's with my name- and wrote checks to places locally where I would go shopping and fill gas.
The hard part is that they know where I live- they have my address.
 - Worried for my children
no longer do I feel really safe
They have now all been caught with possession of dangerous drugs
 and are  sitting in jail
 I will be subpoenaed this fall to testify in court
  Just wrote my statement and sent it off to the judge.
I am scared.
But I have to put my big girl pants on
and see this thru.

But even with this fresh hell
life goes on....

Needed to clear my head and my heart

and nature is just the elixir

Somehow the outdoors makes everything right
 a place to breathe and think

In other news....
Jules got his drivers license yesterday!
Can not believe my baby is driving.

I have had so many creative thoughts dancing in my head lately
nothing better than feeling inspired amidst all this turmoil

Craving peace and simplicity

and usually in those moments.....
are when doors open

...and I do see one opening !
"The purpose of our lives is to be happy"
Dalai Lama

love to all
 peace out - beansprout!

get lost



Getting lost for a while....
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. 
John Muir

Fog horns Birthday

May 04.05
this little guy was born.
I pushed so hard to not have him born on cinco de mayo
Jules was almost a Halloween baby.
Sophia was born on St. Lucia
I like birthday's to be birthday's and holidays
 to be holidays
We asked Fog horn what he wanted to do on his special day?
Bug hunting !
Not too many bugs out yet...
but what ever ants and flies that could be found was celebrated.
We had a fine Montana spring day
walking in the woods under blue skies and sunshine.
It's simply amazing how fast time flies
-Young man, who said you could grow up so fast?
Hipp Hurra
Gratulerer med dagen!
