Each of us has a special gift. I truly believe with all my heart at some point in time we will be called upon to use this gift our ourselves, our family, friends and even strangers. With any luck maybe with all! I’ve never professed to write really well, but I do love to write. My mind goes in so many directions at a time it can be hard to slow it down to write a blog. Some days are much better than others and the quality of the writing follows.
At first I thought I’d just write about gardening and the complete and total joy (sans weeds and too many bees) I get out of working in the back yard. For the last 5-6 years it’s been a labor of love and time well spent outdoors. Then I started thinking about the fun I had creating, nurturing, weeding and trying to rid the new vegetable garden of squirrels and bunny rabbits. I also enjoyed gardening with my great friend Barbara and hubby of 32 years, Doug. We gave away a lot of lettuce last year. (Note to self: less lettuce, more spinach!)
From all the gardening came the cooking. I’m blessed with amazing cooks in my life. While I do love to bake and make casseroles, roast the turkey and such, Doug is absolutely gifted with cooking meals that I just adore. Sylvia (my other great friend) and Barbara are right up there with him! Over the last few years I learned to love all kinds of new foods and learned ways of cooking that have been so enjoyable and ripe with laughs that I feel its time to share with other like minded folks!
Like a lot of blogs, this is a work in progress. I plan to have hi-altitude planting/growing tips from the Rocky Mountain area. Hi-altitude cooking is always a challenge so I will have some of that right along with recipes we’ve developed over the years! Near future steps will be garden projects, very cool sewing projects (Barbara and Sylvie will be my first guest bloggers) and I might just add a section for getting started on genealogy (another passion of mine).
I sincerely hope you will enjoy following our adventures and I would love to hear from you with comments, ideas and suggestions.
With high altitude gratitude,
