Happy Thursday! Aren’t we having a glorious June? It’s been so nice to have actual summer weather this year! I’ve noticed something recently about the passage of time. When time is spent in a specific routine that is generally the same from day to day, it’s much harder to remember. Do you remember the shower … Continue reading What’s the Best Letter to Have in Summer…..Iced T!
Good Morning & Happy Thursday! This last week I saw an app for observing the 72 seasons from ancient Japanese lore. (They come up with the most random things to make apps for). It was about noticing how time goes past not in the handy dandy four seasons but really changes about every 3-5 days. … Continue reading Drrrrenched in Scent!
Good Morning! My niece and nephew are here visiting while my brother is furloughed. It’s so great to see them, an unexpected high note from this rough year. They came and helped Lead Beautification plant flowers on Tuesday with me. My nephew asked who we were doing this for, and I explained it was just … Continue reading News & Notes From Around Lead
Good Morning Lead (and friends of Lead)! Is there anything as summery as the sound of lawn mowers in the late afternoon? I can’t believe we finally made it! Have you seen the beautiful trees in our parking lot at the Visitor Center? And the lilacs that are just about to pop? For some reason … Continue reading Right on Schedule

The Gold Camp Jubilee festival (normally held over 4th of July weekend) has been postponed until Labor Day weekend this year (this is a soft reschedule and … Continue reading Not the Be All End All
Hello! Have you ever looked down on a city from a plane as you are landing/taking off (I’m thinking about the many transfer trips I’ve made through Minneapolis). That moment when you are close enough to see most details but far enough up to see the whole. It’s staggering to notice just how many individuals … Continue reading From a High Vantage Point
Gooooooood Morning Lead! Have you been outside lately? We’ve had some beautiful days. On a walk this week I even smelled that Black Hills summer smell. You could blind fold me and drop me anywhere in the world and I would always recognize the smell of home. I can never quite put my finger on … Continue reading Remember When All We Had Was to Complain About the Weather
Good Morning! I’ve been so proud of our communities. The Deadwood Chamber stepped up right away and started a food program. They have helped support many people in Lead and I feel so grateful to our sister city for their initiative. We will be rolling out a food distribution program tomorrow (Friday 4/24) from the … Continue reading Sunny Days Ahead!
Good Morning! Have you ever been fired, laid off or furloughed? It’s a traumatic experience. But very often it frees us up in a way we weren’t before. Few of us can responsibly walk away from a job, particularly if we have a family and a mortgage and all the trimmings of adult life. Being … Continue reading I can’t Believe I got Fired from the Calendar Factory. All I did was Take a Day Off!
