Had a small addition built onto our walk out basement. It’s almost done and going to be beautiful, but with any construction there comes mess. Hopefully after today the mess will be gone.
Can’t wait to landscape with rock, flat stones and Italian pots….photos to come.
Love doing things like this!
Wish I could say its been easy! I’ve learned a lot from this process. More than I ever wanted to know.
All I can think of now is……this mess will soon be gone!

I love to travel! So many places to see, people to meet, wines to taste and things to do, but starting the day with a cappuccino on my own deck is pretty special too! Colorado, my home.

I’ve lived in my lovely home for almost 20 years and love the huge old Pine and Aspens that surround it. Every year I add a new tree. This is the 2015 addition. I can’t wait to see it grow.

The sun shone and the trees shed their blanket of white. Gone as quickly as it came.

I moved from County Durham to North Yorkshire. More lovely countryside and rivers
I got married and moved to Dorset, a beautiful county in the south-west of England.
After a few years in Germany,
we moved to Winchester. Aren’t I lucky?
All of these places are gorgeous, and I’m happy I had the opportunity to live in them. However nothing compares to my home here in Franktown Colorado. It’s what inspired me to become a writer and where I’ll spend the rest of my days!

I lived in England until I was 39 years old. I moved around a lot, even spent a two or three years in Germany. I never felt like I belonged anywhere until I moved to Franktown Colorado. I’ve lived here for a little over sixteen years. It’s a small town with nothing but farms, horse ranches and good people. The local watering hole is the Stagecoach Saloon, good food, great music and the best bar staff in the whole of the US.

After a tremendous lightening show and downpour last night, the sun eventually penetrated the clouds. Raindrops, like diamonds, hung from the pine tree outside my house.
When I opened my blinds this morning, the local wildlife basked in the morning sunshine. Aren’t I lucky to be surrounded by this. Lived here for almost 20 years and still don’t tire of it.
Enjoy your Sunday, I know I’m going to enjoy mine.
