Okay, I am trying this again. I don't usually travel with my laptop and since this is an actual, honest to goodness vacation, I had promised myself not to use a computer for 7 days. Obviously, that thought has flown out the window!
Anyhow, I am in Orem, Utah visiting family and doing things that I do not normally do. Like riding the ski lift up 1000 feet at Sundance. I once read that you should do one thing that scares you everyday and yesterday, on that ski lift I was scared enough that it should cover a month's worth of doing a daily scary thing!
Ah, but the view of the snow capped mountains, the rushing streams and the singing birds was exquisite. It was about 64 degrees with a soft wafting wind and beads were the furthest thing from my mind until... high in th trees, just below my dangiling feet, were strings of mardi gras beads draped in the aspen branches. The sun caught their sparkle and you could not miss them! I had to laugh and smile to myself with the thought that the universe always confirms to me to " trust the beads "! What a joy!
More pictures to follow including photos of the grandkids ( how can I be this old? )
