Inspirational Thursday-Mountain Views

This is the time of the year that we have had it with Texas, you know how folks that

live in the cold climates go South for the Winter?  

Well, when you live in North Texas you want to leave the state during the months of 

July through September, and going West is very desirable.

It is just plain, hot and dry here and not nearly enough to do even if you do have a 

swimming pool.  Cabin fever sets in and we all know that is not a good thing.

So, my friends we are leaving for Denver Colorado.

I have done some research about this beautiful state, as well as the mile high city

and I am sharing these facts with you today.

Boulder, Colorado


I love the mountains, the fresh mountain air and oh the wonderfully

cool nights which make for the best of rests.

Yes, we are leaving Texas, for a week.

Fun Facts:

The World's first rodeo was held in Colorado on July 4th, 1869

Colorado is home to 54  14,000-ft. mountain peaks-more than any

other State in the U.S.

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.
