Good Morning! Lead is a funny place, houses mashed up on the sides of the hills and a crazy zig zag of one way streets and streets that probably should be one way, but thankfully aren’t. Add to the complexity all the snow and ice we get and you are in for one wild ride … Continue reading Sunny Side Up!
Happy Thursday (already?!) My mom (who graduated from Lead Deadwood High School) mentioned the other day how interesting it is to see her classmates and other people she knows (me included) really find a way to carve out a living here. It can be difficult when so many jobs are seasonal. I had a wild … Continue reading Start Shoveling!
Goooood Morning! It’s hard to believe that just a little over a week ago it was in the 60’s here in Lead. Tonight and tomorrow it’s supposed to get down in the negative teens and twenties (that’s FIFTY degrees below freezing)! They’re warning that windchills might be as low as -40 this week which means … Continue reading Crispy Crunchy Cold Cold COLD
Goooood Morning, Lead! Another Winterfest in the books! It was really amazing to stand on the Visitor Center deck and watch the show after having them postponed for an entire year! I feel so incredibly excited by everything that’s happening here in Lead (more business, more new construction, more people, more traffic, more sales tax!!) … Continue reading It was the best of times and … it was all the best of times.
Today marks the start of Winterfest! We sure don’t have very much snow this year, but I’m excited to have something to get out and do despite the curious lack of “winter” this year. Here’s what’s on the schedule: All weekend – snowflake art sponsored by the Lead Deadwood Arts Council (displayed at the Sanford … Continue reading Come Celebrate Winter With Us!
Good Morning! Yesterday morning there was a beautiful sunrise over Lead. Husband and I enjoyed our early morning coffee while we sat in awe of the vivid cotton candy colors. From our house you can see the Yates headframe but only in the winter because in the summer our neighbor’s annoying boxelder maples have overtaken … Continue reading I Can See Clearly Now
Happy Thursday (is another week almost done?!) The kid has a lot of toys. While it’s exciting to see him engage with toys more now that’s he’s a toddler, I often feel like our living room is an exploding play zone. I might have to put some of those toys away so he can really … Continue reading Just the Right Amount of Choices
Gooooood Morning Lead! I love decorating for Christmas. It’s so cozy and happy! I’m definitely a more is more kinda gal so I love the extra-ness of decorating. Then just as suddenly I’m tired of it. After the holidays all I want is to box it all up and clean. Taking everything down gives a … Continue reading Let’s Do This!
Good last morning of 2020! Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I kind of get tired of saying for the ten thousandth time, “I’m going to eat better, lose ten pounds, get in better shape, read more, stress less.” Blah….. A few years ago I came across the idea of picking a word or short … Continue reading My Word for the Year
Good Christmas Eve to you! Almost ten years ago this November I was living in Los Angeles. It had been a fun few years but as things sometimes do I woke up one morning, went to work and realized that I was over it. I put in my notice, packed up my tiny room and … Continue reading Not Just on the Oregon Trail
