Happy Summer and a Decision

Hi Friends! Happy Summer!

After a catastrophic hail storm here in Denver, summer has finally arrived. 
And wouldn't you know, the hail hit right after I planted my annuals. 
My roof is totaled and so are my annuals. Hopefully, they'll come back in time. 

So, I've made a decision about my blog. 
I'm going to take a partial break this summer and post once or twice a month 
instead of once a week. 

After the snow melts at our rustic mountain cabin and we can navigate the road,  
I'll probably write about summer at the cabin.
I imagine there will be lots of wildflowers poking up through all that snow.

We have quite a to-do list! 
And also lots of snow to melt!

Meanwhile, there are lots of posts archived on my blog for you 
to re-visit or maybe enjoy for the first time. 

Enjoy the long days of summer. 

Love and hugs, Pat



  1. That is just fine you do what you need to do and i will be here when you are ready to go again. Sometimes there's just so many things that needs doing and we don't have the energy for it all so you get it done,lol!!

  2. I am so sorry about your hail damage.

  3. Enjoy the summer break from winter!!

  4. Sorry about the hail damage to your home's roof.

    Have a wonderful summer at your cabin.


  5. So sorry to hear of the hail damage. I pray that insurance will pay for most of it if not all. We will miss you, but look forward to hearing about the cabin.

  6. Can't wait to hear about summer at the cabin! Have a wonderful summer.

  7. Sorry about the hail damage, Pat. The same thing happened to us the first summer we moved to Colorado! Enjoy the rest of the summer!

  8. Looking forward to your summer blog from your cabin. I think you have a lot on your plate at the moment so I hope you get the damage sorted out.

  9. So sorry to hear about the hail storm; that must have been a scary experience. Sending you blessings as you work on your to do list. Soon you will be able to go to your cabin and relax in that beautiful scenery. Take care.

  10. Enjoy your summer break. The hail storms this year have been awful. Sorry about your lovely yard and roof being the latest casualties.

  11. It's always nice to get a heads up, when someone takes a break (or retires).

  12. Have a great break---and by all means enjoy the fleeting good weather we might have---we are still so far behind here in Chicagoland, also!

  13. I'm sorry to hear that you had so much hail damage, Pat... We were fortunate this year here in Texas to have only seen just a bit of hail. With our garage still full of boxes, we were blessed not to have had our cars dented or the roof damaged.

    All our best to you and your family as you get your home repaired. See you in the fall and I'll look for your cabin post! <3

    Love and hugs for a better, restful summer,
    Barb :)

      Barb :)

  14. So sorry to hear about the hail damage and we will miss your weekly posts but I hope you enjoy summer!
