• North Pacific Land Management. Dead Trees

    Beware! North Pacific Land Management MY Review

    Here I go again with some MAJOR whines.  Refresher: last year we hired North Pacific Land Management to help with our property. Our land (11 acres) was very overgrown and needed some thinning. We are always very aware of fire season. I am so paranoid that we could lose everything. We are surrounded by a lot of trees and bushes. Some are dead. Like brown, standing eye sores. North Pacific Land Management came out and explained they would thin out the trees. They would take the trees they cut down and sell them. This is considered their payment. That’s fine. We still were going to be winners. Our existing trees would…

    Trail Cam Friday! July 3, 2020

    FINALLY! Gesh, seems like forever since I’ve had anything even a little interesting to share.  I am hoping that I can capture some fireworks from the top deck tomorrow and maybe something on the trail cam? I dunno. Fingers crossed. So this week the deer are back. Including a young buck with tiny little antlers. One very conceded turkey that seems to be saying “I’m ready for my close-up” and my little bear cub. No sign of the ma’ma in these shots. Of course I had to share one shot that showed we actually had some blue sky!! Can I get a whoop whoop!? So, not the best pictures but,…

  • Lotta Snow & Spotty Internet

    We had snow from Friday till early this morning (Monday). That means a WHOLE lotta snow! Since I have Internet for seconds at a time I thought I would just pop on and add some pictures. First, I stepped out of my craftroom and took a shot of the trail cam.  My goal is to get to that puppy before Friday! That snow goes up to my mid thigh! Of course Bear is in HEAVEN!!! Before the Internet goes again, have a GREAT day!!!!!!!!

  • April 7th Photo-A-Day When I Wake Up

    Prepare to be jealous. I still can’t believe the amazing view we are blessed with. When we lived in California our view was bumper to bumper cars on the street. An apartment complex. A yard with dirt so hard that nothing would grow and a house that seemed to shrink every year. Our new master bedroom is bigger than 4 rooms combined in the Vista house. The area of town we lived in was getting worse and worse by the day. Even with double paned windows the noise outside from stereos, cars and what seemed to be endless parties would make the walls shake. Our new home in Sandpoint, Idaho…

  • Hummingbird feeder

    Happy Sunday!!

    This was a great week! Went to town a couple of times. (OH MY GOSH; I am country again!! I now say things like “Going to town”) One of our trips we walked downtown Sandpoint and stumbled upon the CUTEST shops!!! One of them is called “Burlwood Dreams“.  I need! Yes, NEED one of these bears for our front porch!! HOW cute are these faces?!?! I love that these are made by the owner of the family owned and operated shop. I am truly obsessed with these bears!! And in case you missed my Instagram post about the attack of the hummingbird……….. I was hanging my new hummingbird feeder. Was leaning…

    How Do You Make New Friends??

    My dear little Peanuts I need your help again. I am 14 days out for the move to Idaho. I’m a big ole pile of emotions. A little nervous (soooooooo lying VERY nervous), a little excited (again…… so lying……VERY excited) and a hefty mix of little dread (NOT lying!) As a kid you’re parents move you. You have very little say in the matter. (NO matter what your parents tell you. Sorry kids!) The kids go to school you make new friends. Viola (hopefully) they are happier than ever!!  Yes, it takes a little time, but kids are pretty resilient. How do you as adults find new friends?  I am…
