remembering an early snow in Denver

Water, is taught by thirst.
by Emily Dickinson
Water, is taught by thirst.
Land — by the Oceans passed.
Transport — by throe —
Peace — by its battles told —
Love, by Memorial Mold —
Birds, by the Snow.

tour Reggie Rivers’ house in Denver!

[An aside:  Reggie Rivers is one of my favorite ex-Bronco players!  His parents were living in our Seguin neighborhood when we first moved here and it was obvious after meeting them, why Reggie is such a Man of Character.]

Reggie Rivers (born February 22, 1968 in Dayton, Ohio) is a professional broadcaster working in Denver, Colorado. From 1991 to 1996, Rivers was a professional American football player who played running back for the Denver Broncos.

Dear Husband in the Kitchen!

Posted on

Since retirement, my Sweetheart has proven to be quite adept in the kitchen.  Some of his specialities are:

  • Peanut brittle
  • Gumbo
  • Shrimp Etouffee
  • Omelets (breakfasts – each day of the week!)

Recently, Hubby and Oldest Colorado Grandson went fig-gathering – filching figs from a friend’s tree.  The result of this excursion  provided delicious fig preserves – bless my husband’s heart (and cooking skills!).

I never had it so good!!

Our first home in Seguin had a large yard with a great many trees;  one of the trees was a loquat tree.

I recall the delicious loquat jelly Hubby made one year; however, gathering loquats is a bit different from gathering figs (much more labor intensive with the smaller loquats).

Ah – I love a man in the kitchen!
